Waking Up Tired and No Energy? Is it Low Nitric Oxide?
Got enough sleep but woke up feeling groggy and tired? Had a hard time waking up until later in the day? Became sleepy when you stopped moving and/or sat for extended periods of time?
You may have low Nitric Oxide.
Nitric Oxide is a gas that helps cycle nutrients and oxygen throughout the entire body and brain. And sleep is a time to recover and rebuild. So if you have low NO, your body won’t properly replenish and restore its nutrients and you'll wake up feeling tired and groggy, even if you slept a full 8 hours.
It’s easy to test if you are nitric oxide deficient. Get your hands on a few NO test strips and check your levels in the morning upon waking. If you have low NO morning levels along with morning fatigue, then you definitely know the problem.
The best way to increase your nitric oxide level and stop morning fatigue and no energy is to eat more nitrate-rich foods, exercise regularly, and sunbathe. Also try some of our nitric oxide boosting products, like PURECLEAN POWDER™ and BEET'UMS™.
NOTE: Don't expect to see a next-day turn around in your morning energy levels (though it can happen!), it takes 30 days to see full results on a NO boosting diet and lifestyle.

Do HIIT training (increases nitric oxide)
Avoid a sedentary lifestyle (decreases nitric oxide)
Eat wholefoods and more colorful veggies (increases nitric oxide)
Supplement with essential amino acids (increases nitric oxide)
Lower stress (increases nitric oxide)
Breathe through your nose more (increases nitric oxide)
Don’t use antiseptic mouthwash (decreases nitric oxide, kills mouth bacteria)
Get 8-9 hours of sleep every night (increases nitric oxide)
Take regular hot showers and saunas (heat modalities increase nitric oxide)
