This article crossed my desk from Chris Carmichael Head Coach of CTS that I wanted to share with you to which I want to add one additional critical factor.
Keep your nitric oxide levels elevated!
You can do this by getting sun exposure and by consuming 2 servings of PureClean Performance’s proven beet juice infused products daily. They are truly fitness in a bag.
I have 1.5 scoops of CHOCOBERRY BLAST™ in my daily smoothie, 1 BEETUMS™ almost every day after dinner or a cup of UNBEETABREWTM as a late afternoon pleasure or prior to a work out especially when I am going hard.
The benefits improved stamina, lower heart rate per power output and even increased power.
And in times of immune concern, remember beets enhance cellular immune response, reduce inflammation and lower blood pressure which all enhance our ability to ward off and lessen the effects of viruses.
While we are all concerned about the risk to our health from the coronavirus, please know that if you are “healthy” and under 65 years old, your risk of serious illness is not much more than any other cold or flu.
So why the fuss?.
It is our human nature. We overlook the long-term certain risks and focus on the short-term potential ones, no matter how small. So while the world goes into shut down due to fear and potential risk of coronavirus, we overlook and avoid the dangers that are certain that will effect us all, such as climate change and toxic pollution
Did you know that ten thousand people a day die from the consequences of air pollution every day caused by fossil fuels? But as awful as this is many places such as Mexico City, Cairo, Northern Italy, cities in China and India, San Bernadino and Bakersfield, CA and more continue on with their day to day life and don’t even think about it.
I pay homage to Mark Sisson who has taught me a number of things over the years but one of the most important and simple one that we all forget in the midst of training protocols, creating sleep sanctuaries and personalized nutritional protocols.
Make it your most important daily biohack. :-) Take a daily stress-free walk. And if you are lucky enough to be a park and nature then that is even better.
Walking will boost your productivity.
It will stimulate blood flow to and throughout the brain, literally improving cognitive function.
While I do many things to support my health on a daily basis, here are the top 5 strategies I personally implement and strongly recommend to people to simultaneously reach their health and performance goals and slow the the aging process.
The number one key for optimal health and longevity is to control blood glucose spiking. Glucose and insulin spikes are at the cornerstone of cellular aging.. And by that I mean more than your fasting glucose but glucose spikes that occur throughout the day. These spikes occur not just for those eating the SAD (Standard American Diet); but even people who are eating so-called healthy diets.
Well it took me a month to get started again with our blog posts thanks to a 2 week trip to Mexico (Mexico City is quite an interesting place rich in culture, great food and color) and 3 new projects that I am working on, I hope to share the first with you next week!
In this week’s post, I want to share information about the benefits and risks of High Intensity Training from two leaders in endurance coaching, Jason Moore from Elite HRV and Chris Carmichael from CTS Train Right.
I want to start my first blog post of the year sharing some very positive news. If you’re depressed by the state of the world, let me toss out an idea: In the long arc of human history, 2019 has been the best year ever.
This may not seem to be the case, especially for many of us in the US, with climate change worsening, political tension higher than ever, a medical system that is clearly broken, the social structure of our country deteriorating, wide disparity in income, drug problems and more but for humanity over all, life just keeps getting better.
Whether you’ve been active or have stepped back and “let life get in the way” of your fitness and workout routine, you can get back into it, if you’re committed. While there was a time when I wasn’t quite as active as I wanted to be, I continued to follow PureClean Performance protocols. These protocols focus on optimizing your body’s nitric oxide and essential amino acid levels.
Dietary nitrates make your heart and muscles more efficient. If we consume adequate amounts of dietary nitrates, our body will convert them into a short-lived gas called nitric oxide.
One of nitric oxide’s primary roles is the regulation of the delivery of oxygen to our muscles. They way this works is that it relaxes and opens the blood vessels; this improves blood flow.
