For several years, Scientists have found that Exercise makes the heart muscle cells and prevent the destruction of myocardial ischemia.
But there are some of you might not know it was like that?
Research from Emory University School of Medicine have discovered evidence that exercise is important in itself.
For example, cells in the lining of the artery called Endothelium cell production and secretion of nitric oxide plays an important role in making the blood line. In addition to blood vessel growth, the blood flow to the organs improves. Moreover, a nitrite is durable and serves to protect the endothelium cell from being destroyed by cardiac ischemia.
As a result, when we get older, there is a loss of flexibility of the walls of the arteries.
This is mainly because a reduction of nitric oxide in the body, the risk of heart disease, ischemia, in addition to a lack of exercise. Nitric oxide is a powerful neurotransmitter that assists blood vessels to relax and also enhances circulation. Some evidence shows that arginine may help improve blood flow in the arteries of the heart. That may improve symptoms of clogged arteries, chest pain or angina, and coronary artery disease. The importance of consuming Arginine (essential amino acid) foods, is that it is used to synthesize nitric oxide, which positively affects respiratory, cardiovascular, renal and immunological function. For instance, Arginine improves lymphocyte function and may prove useful in treating inflammatory diseases.
You will be glad to know, we can help increase our nitric oxide levels by eating foods in which L- arginine can be found in such as spinach, beans, whole grains, soy, red meat, eggs.
We also found out that dark brown chocolate contains Polyphenols, another antioxidants (removes potentially damaging oxidizing agents in the body). As a result,This can help increase the level of nitric oxide in the body. To prevent heart disease from lack of blood, we need to exercise regularly and eating a nutritious diet.
If you really want to lower risk for cardiovascular disease and fight radical damage, you must follow a proper plan and you will be glad to know that Neil Fox Health and Fitness can help you in this regard at best. Neil is a master of science graduate in cardiovascular health and rehabilitation.
Recently, we posted a blog on nitric oxide, which was shown and illustrated to be beneficial for the heart and blood vessels. In this blog we will investigate if there are benefits in taking nitric oxide for athletic performance & we will investigate the association between
If you observe athletes and bodybuilders, their diets consists of food substances that contain nitric oxide with the self-perceived purpose of giving the athlete strength and for muscle growth.
What we know is that both the athlete and bodybuilders consume a healthy diet. Especially foods that contain L - arginine and L- Citrulline such as red red meat, poultry, eggs, seafood, green vegetables (i.e spinach), beans, soybean, cereals, are all full of both L - arginine and L- Citrulline. As a result, nitric oxide is an important part of creating a substance that makes the blood flow and increased oxygen to the muscles.
Moreover Nitric oxide also helps to eliminate acid, lactic acid, caused by the exercise away. As a result, by athletes and bodybuilder consuming a diet rich in nitrate, they help to improve their performance by reducing fatigue and to recover faster than normal.
On the other hand, while exercise reduce the degree of amino acid called arginine, the levels of nitric oxide decreased mainly due to the level of lactic acid caused by exercise. As a result, the athlete feels tired faster, so the diet supplemented with arginine will help put them back on the levels of Nitric oxide. This results in an expansion of arteries. As a result, the muscle lactic acid is eliminated normally make the exercise done better and recover faster.
Consumption of fruit offers numerous of health benefits. Individuals who consume more fruits and vegetables as part of an overall healthy diet are likely to have a diminish risk of some chronic diseases. Fruits provide nutrients vital for health and maintenance of your body.
Cardiovascular disease is a major cause of disability and premature death throughout the world, and contributes substantially to the escalating costs of health care. The underlying pathology is atherosclerosis, which develops over many years and is usually advanced by the time symptoms occur, generally in middle age. Acute coronary and cerebrovascular events frequently occur suddenly, and are often fatal before medical care can be given. Modification of risk factors has been shown to reduce mortality and morbidity in people with diagnosed or undiagnosed cardiovascular disease
Several forms of therapy can prevent coronary, cerebral and peripheral vascular events. Decisions about whether to initiate specific preventive action, and with what degree of intensity, should be guided by estimation of the risk of any such vascular event. The risk prediction charts that accompany these guidelines allow treatment to be targeted according to simple predictions of absolute cardiovascular risk.
The debilitating and often fatal complications of cardiovascular disease (CVD) are usually seen in middle-aged or elderly men and women. However, atherosclerosis – the main pathological process leading to coronary artery disease, cerebral artery disease and peripheral artery disease – begins early in life and progresses gradually through adolescence and early adulthood (15–17). It is usually asymptomatic for a long period.
The rate of progression of atherosclerosis is influenced by cardiovascular risk factors: tobacco use, an unhealthy diet and physical inactivity (which together result in obesity), elevated blood pressure (hypertension), abnormal blood lipids (dyslipidemia) and elevated blood glucose (diabetes). Continuing exposure to these risk factors leads to further progression of atherosclerosis, resulting in unstable atherosclerotic plaques, narrowing of blood vessels and obstruction of blood fl ow to vital organs, such as the heart and the brain. The clinical manifestations of these diseases include angina, myocardial infarction, transient cerebral ischemic attacks and strokes. Given this continuum of risk exposure and disease, the division of prevention of cardiovascular disease into primary, secondary and tertiary prevention is arbitrary, but may be useful for development of services by different parts of the health care system. The concept of a specific threshold for hypertension and hyperlipidemia is also based on an arbitrary dichotomy.
The purpose of applying the recommendations elaborated in these guidelines is to motivate and assist high-risk individuals to lower their cardiovascular risk by:
● quitting tobacco use, or reducing the amount smoked, or not starting the habit;
● making healthy food choices;
● being physically active; ● reducing body mass index (to less than 25 kg/m2) and waist–hip ratio (to less than 0.8 in women and 0.9 in men (these figures may be different for different ethnic groups) ;
● lowering blood pressure (to less than 140/90 mmHg);
● lowering blood cholesterol (to less than 5 mol/l or 190 mg/dl);
● lowering LDL-cholesterol (to less than 3.0 mol/l or 115 mg/dl);
● Controlling glycaemia, especially in those with impaired fasting glycaemia and impaired glucose tolerance or diabetes;
● taking aspirin (75 mg daily), once blood pressure has been controlled
Estimates of relative risk per unit increase in continuous risk factors, i.e. per mmHg for systolic blood pressure and per mol/l for total cholesterol, as well as for the presence of smoking were determined from the CRA project (largely from prospective cohort studies). These relative risk estimates were applied to the hypothetical cohort to determine the relative risk of each individual in the cohort.
Absolute risk of a cardiovascular event was determined by scaling individual relative risk to population incidence rates of cardiovascular disease (ischemic heart disease and stroke), estimated from the Global Burden of Disease Study. The probability of a cardiovascular event was extrapolated to a 10-year period. The mean absolute risk for various combinations of risk factor levels was then calculated and tabulated.
If you really want to lower risk for cardiovascular disease you must follow a proper plan and you will be glad to know that Neil Fox Health and Fitness can help you in this regard at best. Neil is a master of science graduate in cardiovascular health and rehabilitation.

In the past several years, people understand that Nitric oxide is a toxic substance causing the disc cover only later that researchers (scientists) found that nitric oxide is a substance that is hugely beneficial. In addition, the discovery of such compounds has led Louis Ignarro "Robert Fucgot and Ferid Murad, who won the Nobel in 1998 who research revealed that in our body cells there are about 50 -100 trillion cells, and the nitric oxide is a compound one. Nitric oxide appears in smooth muscles cells, which they acts as a messenger, in terms of how each cell works:
Various intravascular is lined with cells called endothelial cells when blood pressure rises. Epithelial cells secrete substances to counter the out nitric oxide and nitric oxide compounds being released in this way. When the blood vessels expands, it results in downward pressure on circulation blood, which can be seen to increasingly affects many other things:
To prevent heart disease mainly due from a lack of blood supplying the heart, we need to exercise regularly and eating a nutritious diet. Food such as dark chocolate, tofu, beetroot, walnuts, pistachios and black tea leaves and many more are great food sources of nitric oxide.
Exposure to arginine to nitric oxide synthesis in order to maintain a level of nitric oxide in the body, high doses can prevent heart disease more effectively. As a result, showcase the importance of having a nutritious diet that contain foods that are enrich with nitric oxide as a primary preventer of a forthcoming coronary heart disease incident.
In recent times, nitric oxide has received an extensive amount of attention by researchers, scientist and cardiac professionals. Nitric oxide will be seen as a benefit specifically for people with coronary heart disease. Likewise, in this vein, starting from the past, when Alfred Nobel, founder of the Nobel Prize has been treated with a drug called "Nitroglycerin" from his own general practitioners to help treat coronary heart disease more than 100 years ago. At first Alfred wondered about such substances mainly because he knows "nitroglycerin" is a substance that is used in making bombs, dynamite, but these substances have helped cure his heart. You may be wondering about Nitroglycerin &
The effect of nitroglycerin, which can release nitric oxide, and triggers vasodilation that causes the artery stenosis expansion. As a result, the flow of blood and oxygen through more symptoms of heart disease, had improved the inner surface of the arteries, called the endothelium, which is the production of nitric oxide (acts as a workout) and the brave heart is the squeezing force. The cells lining the artery, releases nitric oxide into the diseased vein thrombosis hardening of the adhesion of grease. Therefore, the cells lining the arteries secretion of nitric oxide can not come out as expected. This is why the Doctor had order "Nitroglycerin" for the old patient named Alfred Nobel with the purpose of releasing nitric oxide to let it out to server. As mentioned above, nitric oxide have been shown to improve the symptoms associated with coronary heart disease.
Nitric oxide is naturally produced by the cells lining the inside of blood vessels. However, if you really want to lower your chances of developing coronary heart disease, it is vital that you follow a proper and structured exercise plan and you will be glad to know that Neil Fox Health & Fitness can help you in this regard at best. Neil is also a MSc Cardiovascular Health and Rehabilitation graduate and can help you with any questions or queries in this regard.
The road to alcohol or drug addiction recovery is long and comes with many challenges along the way. If you are in recovery, you know it’s important to remain positive through the process, but you also know how difficult it can be when you’re dealing with such an intense, layered personal issue.
Recently, we met up with the fabulous Michelle Patterson (owner of http://recoverypride.org), who has to be applause for recently starting a movement called "Recovery Pride to take my stand" that assist people in recovery move from shame-based to pride-based thinking. In our discussion with Michelle, we talked about "how people in recovery can shift from shame-based to pride-based thinking", which Michelle offers advice (plus offering additional links for more in-depth-information) on several key aspects regarding to staying positive while in recovery and dealing with feelings of guilt and shame.
Here are a handful of ways you can remain hopeful and confident as you work through your recovery.
Constructively Coping with Feelings
No matter where you are at in your recovery process, you will likely be dealing with a wide range of emotion. These feelings can come from a variety of sources and take you by surprise. Addiction is often the product of some past trauma or unresolved issues, and getting to the cause of your addiction can take some intense therapy and self-reflection. Dredging up past mistakes can leave you feeling guilty and ashamed, but it’s important to be able to work through these emotions without being overwhelmed by them. A counsellor or therapist can lead you along the way, offering guidance and insight that can help your head and heart stay clear.
Focusing on Yourself
As you continue with your addiction treatment, you’ll need to remain focused on yourself. Know that this does not make you selfish. Take time to establish healthy routines for yourself to keep your energy and strength up through recovery. Eat healthy foods, be sure to fit some stress-relieving activity into your daily schedule, and make self-care a priority. You’ll be faced with even more challenges once you are out of recovery, so it’s important to take advantage of the time you have to yourself, so that you can make a happier life in the future.
Getting Back to Real Life
Working through a recovery program can be especially challenging for those who need to also work. Check to see if your company has an Employee Assistance Program, and take advantage of any benefits you can to help you through recovery. Many assistance programs may be able to provide referrals to treatment programs and therapists covered by your insurance, while offering confidential advice on how to balance your work with recovery. If you feel up to it, try talking with your supervisors about alternative work schedules or adjustments that may help you stay productive while in recovery. If your recovery includes inpatient treatment, speak with your HR department about an FMLA-covered leave of absence to help cover your time away without sacrificing all of your pay or your job. Taking care of career concerns can help alleviate stress and keep you focused on your treatment.
Relating to Other People
So many studies suggest that social connection is critical for overall wellness, but relationships can be a sensitive subject for addicts. It’s important for you to surround yourself with positive, compassionate people while in recovery. Talk with trusted friends and family or find new connections through recovery support groups. You may also need to part ways with a few old friends, especially if they are still using or are not supportive of your recovery, and that can lead to more guilt. Those who care about you will only want the best for you, however, and that includes supporting you through your recovery.
Your ability to remain optimistic and strong through recovery is important to maintaining a long-lasting, sober lifestyle. Guilt, shame, loss, and change are all part of the process, but it helps to have tools to overcome these challenges. With the right guidance, you can focus on getting better and getting back to living a healthy, happy life.
