Blood Pressure

Posted by PicPax Nutrition on

High blood pressure is a critical turning point in health and is always treated very seriously. There are a number of lifestyle changes including diet and supplementation.

  • Losing weight
  • Increasing regular exercise
  • Eating more potassium rich foods such as potatoes, bananas, watermelon and green leafy vegetables
  • Increasing magnesium and calcium
  • Reducing salt
  • Eating foods to increase Nitric Oxide (NO) or to supplement to increase NO

Nitric oxide is a molecule whose primary purpose is to make sure blood vessels stay wide open. It increases fluidity of arteries which improves circulation, delivery of nutrients and oxygen to cells and helps with healing. Individuals with poor circulation, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, erectile dysfunction are often deficient in the critical molecule nitric oxide.

Blood flow is often impaired in older individuals due to a number of lifestyle issues as well as genetics. Arginine is a conditionally essential amino acid that makes Nitric Oxide and requires precursors L-ornithine, and L-citrulline improves absorption. According to the research, increasing Nitric Oxide with L-arginine, can reverse deficiencies and dramatically improve your arterial elasticity, blood delivery to extremities, cardiovascular and overall health.
