My theme has always been and still is ‘Wake up the new you!’ By now, if you have been following my blogs, I hope YOU have become aware that staying healthy comes from the inside out. You can eat tons of junk food and then take supplements to offset the damage the junk food does, but supplements won’t offset the damage. Most of the damage being done, is being done to your immune system. Once the immune system is weakened it can start to attack your body instead of safeguarding it from infection and dis-ease. Thus the beginning of autoimmune disorders such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease, lung issues, and Lupus and etc.
A weakened immune system opens the door to you getting sick from all flu viruses to include COVID 19. Enter NITRIC OXIDE!
When you are young , the body produces NITRIC OXIDE in large quantities. As you get older the NITRIC OXIDE quantity decreases. Studies show that by age 40 your body produces 50% less Nitric Oxide than it did when you were a teenager. NITRIC OXIDE (NO) is a key player that helps strengthen the IMMUNE SYSTEM. How, you ask? The macrophages that produce NO is toxic to the bacteria in the body. They help to destroy the bacteria, while at the same time the NO they produce helps to protect the body against the other types of infections caused by the viruses and parasites.
Studies over the past 20 years have proved and been verified that NITRIC OXIDE, as well, “moderates blood pressure, by relaxing the blood vessels and supporting a healthy endothelium – the one-cell linking your veins and arteries.” NO must be present to facilitate the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide. NITRIC OXIDE also facilitates the repair of the capillaries, thereby treating effectively other things like: neuropathy, macular degeneration, kidney failure, impaired brain function, periodontal disease, heart and other vital organs from damage, absorbability of nutrients for the nourishment of the cells, and blood vessel damage after a stroke or heart attack.
NITRIC OXIDE is literally vital to help the body heal itself, as the body naturally wants to do.
SYMPTOMS of low NITRIC OXIDE include:
- Fatigue and low energy levels
- Lack of stamina/endurance
- High blood pressure
- Joint pain and inflammation
- Decreased heart function
- You get sick more often
Are there foods that can increase the production of NITRIC OXIDE?
They include: Beets, garlic, protein meats to include poultry and seafood, dark chocolate, leafy greens (spinach, kale, cabbage), Citrus fruits (oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruit), Pomegranate, nuts and seeds, watermelon, grapes, and other healthy protein foods. After changing your eating habits from junk food to the above healthy foods, you can as well, add a Nitric Oxide Supplement. There are many companies selling them, to include Life Extension and health food stores. Always buy the highest quality, not the cheap stuff, for the best results. Follow the directions. Learn to know your body and how it reacts to supplementation, since once you are feeling good you may not need to take it as often to maintain the new healthy status of your body.
REMEMBER: Take care of your body. It is the only place you have to live!
GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND GOD BLESS AMERICA!
