Why Pollution Increases Heart Drugs Side Effects

benefits of nitric oxide

Did you know the heart disease is on the increase?

So with Valentine’s Day this Friday it’s only natural to think of matters of the heart, and why I’m giving away Free Heart Health Checks (both in person and online – subscribe below via the ‘Nitric Oxide’ link and email me).

I usually start Fridays with some stretching, then some learning, then a walk around Stanborough Lakes with Lily (our dog).

Sometimes I go to the gym first.

It’s a given that exercise is great for the heart.

It’s also a given that eating the right foods is important.

But what exactly are the right foods?

While there is no one particular food, it does seem that foods containing nitrogen seem to be key.

Why nitrogen?

Because it’s needed to make Nitric Oxide (NO) which is one of the most important chemicals in the body.

It helps your immune system, is important in controlling inflammation, brain health, sexual health (it’s how Viagra works) and heart health.

It’s now know that the lower your NO levels, not only is it more likely you will have heart disease but also – THE MORE LIKELY YOU ARE TO HAVE SIDE EFFECTS TO THE DRUGS YOU’VE BEEN GIVEN!

I said above heart disease is on the increase, and if you’ve been paying attention to my recent posts and emails you’ll know air pollution is a big cause of that increase.

Why would air pollution increase heart disease?

Well it seems that air pollution disrupts your ability to make/control NO.

So, apart from moving to the middle of Canada to avoid air pollution what can you do?

First of all, purchase an air purifier, even a small one that cleans the air where you sleep at night.

You can find plenty on Amazon – https://amzn.to/2SzbRGL

Second, take something to boost glutathione.  Glutathione both protects you against air pollution, and it also directly protect the NO system.

Try N-acetyl Cysteine for instance. (I can go through what I do on your next visit)

Third – directly feed your NO system with the right food and some supplements by watching the videos and downloading the pdf food guide here:

Fourth: Book your Free Heart Health Check by replying to the email you’ll get when you subscribe to the Nitric Oxid e info.

So in summary – for a better heart you need to exercise and eat right, and look after your lungs.

Have a great Valentines Day, and share this information with someone you love, who’s heart you care for.

Be Well

NO and heart health


The lower your nitric oxide is the more likely to have heart disease AND side effects to drugs
