  1. “Nitrate rich foods”


    I make bacon using a calibrated celery salt. Reality check: it is the same as synthetic versions. As well as being a farmer and butcher I am also a chemist. So why celery? Marketing. That is the reality.

  2. Great video again, it's been a while but worth the wait. Can I suggest a video on pro biotic mouth rinses and tooth pastes? I dropped my old toothpaste which contained Triclosan and Fluoride among other things, and got a huge improvement in BP. I know you did one before on you own brew. Maybe it's time to rethink the concept.

  3. One way to boost NO production that is often overlooked is to eat 'purple foods' – foods that contain anthocyanins. I call them 'purple foods', but they can be purple, red, magenta, or even black. Examples are blueberries, beets, black rice and hibiscus tea. With beets you get both nitrates & anthocyanins. There's also a lot of oxalate in beets so I would avoid things like beet juice and freeze dried beet chips. I passed a kidney stone after eating a few packs of beet chips over the course of a couple of weeks.

  4. I am skeptical that there is actually scientific certainty regarding #5. There are no references provided.

    I would also suggest that supplements are a bad idea unless there is a specific, problematic deficiency. It is impossible to know the long term downstream effects of consuming isolated nutrients. Eating whole unprocessed plant foods only is ideal. Of course, eating high nitrate veggies is unlikely to be very effective if one doesn't stop consuming the foods that harm NO production and damage the endothelial cells.

    Apart from these 2, the info is great!

  5. You are beautiful and creative thank you but where do the bacteria that convert nitrates in our mouths live on the tongue or on the teeth and does cleaning or scraping the tongue cause the killing of these bacteria

  6. Yay! You're back! Your mention of L-Citrulline lead me down quite a fascinating rabbit hole about Dr. Ignarro's discovery that lead to a Nobel Prize. Amazing! Your videos are ultimately valuable, and so well made! Thank you!

  7. Very good information & advice..My walking is limited..
    On Beta blockers, & warfarin due to past Dvt.. Have bradycardia. These ideas will hopefully help improve my circulation.
    Thankyou sweetie. 🙂
