First of all, let me state that I’m not a medical doctor and I’m not prescribing anything, nor suggesting that you follow my personal program.
I am simply here to share my discovery about natural remedies that have altered my life significantly. I am 62 years old, and I have had little or no congenital or chronic health issues over my lifetime.
Imagine my surprise when I went to a Bariatric doctor to lose weight and found that I had blood pressure of 162/120. Granted, I had been going through some stressful events in my life; a broken heart and several million-dollar bankrupt investments would spike anyone’s blood pressure.
There were a lot of other issues I was facing involving adrenal fatigue, excess cortisol, and the excess weight that I went to the doctor for in the first place. So even though I worked out five or more days a week and have always been active, I was wondering what the f*ck was going on with my body.
I was especially sensitive to the blood pressure issue because I watched my father die of high blood pressure and late stage Alzheimer’s Disease. You can always tell someone that is on high blood pressure medicine, they are usually covered with deep red bruises indicative of clotting inhibitors like Coumadin. I did not want to experience those symptoms at any time of my life, but with blood pressure at 160/120 that was where I was headed.
So I did some research and discovered that a simple naturally occurring molecular compound could not only help with my high blood pressure, but it also helps eliminate arterial plaque and a host of other benefits. This compound is known as nitric oxide or NO. (This is not the funny gas you get at the dentist; that is nitrous oxide (N2O)).
According to medical research, the naturally occurring levels of NO in our bodies declines with age, and as a result arteries stiffen and become blocked, and the downward spiral of cardiovascular disease starts. The medical term is endothelial dysfunction (which actually causes erectile dysfunction as well—guys better start paying attention).
