Priming your body before a workout is critical! Not only will it help you feel better, but these little fellas called “nitrates,” which breakdown to nitric oxide (NO), are the gateway to increasing CV fitness and exercise performance both on the field and in the gym.
Despite the accumulation of evidence that supports the numerous benefits of consuming more plants, the actual fruit & veggie intake today remains far below the levels proposed in the dietary guidelines. Factually, our average intake levels of plants has declined remarkably over the past thirty years, worldwide. This is why supplementation is so important!
Reminder: Not all supplements are created equally! Most supplements on the market are watered down and made with synthetic and/or artificial ingredients. Which is a great way for the supplement market to make huge profits, but your body won’t. Think about it: If your body is made up by all-natural “ingredients”…shouldn’t the food you’re fueling your body with be likewise? In this case, opposites don’t attract. Sorry lovies. Do yourself a favor and be the best mechanic to your well-oiled machine – your metabolism!
Give your supplement’s nutrition facts label a thorough up-down before purchasing. And, be weary of synthetic nitrates (i.e. sodium nitrate) in your supplements. There is no comparison between natural and synthetic in terms of bioavailability. This is due to the polyphenols and antioxidant overload derived from plants. When you check out the nutrition facts label, look for nitrate-rich plant-derived sources such as leafy greens, spinach, arugula, celery, and beetroot – these are plants high in nitrates, naturally.
