How to make your arteries healthy and elastic.
I can’t stress this enough, it’s so damn important to take care of your arteries and your health. I mean, what other vehicle do you have to get you through life? You can’t just trade your body in for a newer model, maybe one day, but not now. So that means you need to wake up and start putting your body first.
As we age, things break down, our bodies produce less of this and less of that. Yeah, aging sucks, but how fast and gracefully we age is up to you. So start taking control of the things you can and stop giving a shit about the things you can’t.
One of the things that start to deplete in our bodies is nitric oxide. Nitric oxide serves several functions and one of their most important jobs is artery health. The body starts to naturally make less nitric oxide as we age, but we also destroy what the bodies making by eating animal based proteins, all oils, garbage foods that are processed and foods high in fat.
These foods are guaranteeing that Americans have the highest rate of heart disease on the planet. We are the fattest and the most unhealthy citizens of the earth. How does it feel that Aliens wouldn’t pick America to be on their kick ball team because we are to fucking fat? So, what can we do about this? Well a lot, and the answer is simple. Change your freaking diet. Change your nutritional philosophy and transition to a full plant based, low fat, vegan diet. Do it now and stop wasting time and making excuses.
If you’ve been on a typical American diet for years, chances are, your artery walls have some plaque build up. Some times it’s impossible for doctors to detect small amounts of plaque build up without doing a procedure called an angiogram. This where the surgeon sends a little wire camera through your arteries and releases dye. They then start taking photos of your arteries. This is the best method to detect plaque build up. Plaque build up is one thing, artery health and elasticity is another.
It’s time to start strengthening your arteries. In this recipe video, I show you how to make a super powerful nitric oxide booster with Kale, and Spinach. I typically put in green chard but I didn’t have any handy. Make this concoction and eat it 4-6 times a day. This will boost your nitric oxide levels big time. That boost of nitric oxide will help reduce plaque, lower your blood pressure and restore your arteries back to that healthy elastic feel.

Below you’ll find quotes from Pritkin and Dr. Whitaker:
“Nitric oxide is a key signaling molecule throughout the body. Produced by the endothelial cells lining the arteries, it penetrates the underlying smooth muscles and acts as a potent vasodilator that relaxes the arteries. Therefore, nitric oxide plays a critical role in blood pressure and overall circulation”. – Pritkin
“When the endothelium senses heart-healthy conditions, such as physical activity and low cholesterol, it releases more nitric oxide. And that’s a very good thing. Nitric oxide expands the blood vessels, increasing blood flow and decreasing plaque growth and blood clotting”.- Dr. Whitaker
