"OUR GIFT TO LIFE IS OURSELVES. LIFE'S GIFT TO US IS THE OPPORTUNITY TO REALIZE OUR VALUE."
It has taken a long time with lots of self-work for me to realize my value. I always knew deep down, but I got off track for a period of time some years ago. Being back on track involves more than I initially thought. It involves self-work. We all need to do some self-work. This might include a more organized schedule, a new hobby, meditation, psychological therapy, group therapy, a 12 step program, massage, et al.
Realize your own value. Be proud of your accomplishments. Inhance your own self esteem.
Nitric Oxide is a vaso dilator. It has been studied extensively for various disease of the body. L arginine (an amino acid) increases nitric oxide production, thus increasing blood flow. It can be used to decrease blood pressure. It has been used to support erectile dysfunction. Years ago, a book called The Arginine Solution was written. It is worthwhile to read this book.
Nitric oxide is involved in cognitive function. We do know that overall cognitive health is related to low levels of oxidative stress and healthy vascular function. Studies have shown that there is a decrease in serum nitric oxide levels in patients with suboptimal cognitive function as compared with controls. In the same group there were low levels of good cholesterol ( HDL) This study now suggests that nitric oxide might be involved in cognitive function through the HDL. Interesting!
In addition to decreasing blood pressure, nitric oxide also plays an important role in well-being and mood. Even though nitric oxide has a very short half life (which means it does last long in the body) it can modulate or stimulate various neurotransmitters that are involved in mood. These are serotonin, epinephrine and dopamine.
OTHER BENEFITS OF NITRIC OXIDE:
1. broncho dilation
2. blood cell regulation
3. learning/ memory
4. pain sensation
5. central blood pressure control
6. human immune response
Has your doctor tested your nitric oxide levels? Everyone over 40 years old should have a nitric oxide test by blood. It is a simple test down in the office.
Arginine does work to increase nitric oxide levels, but the amount needed is greater than 9 grams. Instead I use Neo40 daily. Neo40 helps restore the nitric oxide level naturally. I do pre and post blood sample testing. The blend of nitric oxide is 420mg with beet root powder, and hawthorn berry extract. There is also Vitamin C and B12 in the formula.
I would suggest reading the Nitric Oxide (NO) Solution.
