You might need a nitric oxide booster.
I’m just talking to myself here, so if you’re not interested in developing healthy habits, you might as well tune out now. Everybody gone yet? Good. Now I can give myself a good talking to. Hey Tony…If only you could give yourself a shot that would boost your energy and no needles were required. And no yucky tasting liquids or pills either? Wouldn’t that be great? Well, you don’t have to imagine because you’re designed to be able to do that. (you should’ve guessed as much) And all it takes is for you to put down your computer or smartphone or whatever you’re writing and reading this on and get up and go for a walk. Yeah, you can give yourself a nitric oxide booster shot with a 30 minute walk. Sound good? Great, ’cause there’s more…
What exactly IS a nitric oxide booster?
OK…before I start getting off my comfortable couch and moving my backside around, it would be a good idea to find out what a nitric oxide booster is. Right? I promise, Tony…it’s not gonna hurt. And you’ll thank me later. But to help you out, and keep it unscientific so you won’t doze off, let’s just say your body stores its own medicine inside the lining of your arteries. And the medicine doesn’t come with tamper-proof tops…so it’s easy to open and use.
That lining of the arteries is called the endothelium. But like I said, I don’t wanna get too scientific, so we’ll just call it the lining of your arteries. And in that lining your body contains chemicals designed just for you to help you heal and stay well. (talk about great design!) So, how do you open up the medicine and let it work its magic? Here’s how…
You gotta move!
When you move, your body produces nitric oxide. And nitric oxide moving quickly through your veins and arteries is what opens up the medicine in the lining (endothelium). And your body is designed to know what works best for you. Unlike pharmaceuticals which typically have more side effects than benefits. (you remember those from years ago, right Tony?) The way to get your nitric oxide booster is to boost yourself through a 30 minute walk…or lift some weights…or swim, ski, bike, etc. etc. etc.
The point is…movement gets the nitric oxide moving. Coincidence? Hardly. Awesome design in a complex structure? You betcha! Somebody went to all the trouble to give your body the ability to heal itself, Tony. Why not take advantage of it? Especially when all it takes is to get up and move. (update…walked 2 miles with my wife this morning, and I could practically feel those natural medicines pouring into my bloodstream)
Well, I’ve got myself motivated. If there’s anyone else eavesdropping on this conversation, how about you? Gonna move around more today?
