Aging is a natural and beautiful process, and it does not need to come with any complications. As an active person, you can look at aging as a contributor to better decision-making on managing and supporting your energy levels.

Our goal is to share how you can support nitric oxide and energy levels during this holiday season with healthy, easy, and yummy dishes. 

Since decision-making changes and improves with age, so can our choices at the holiday table.

You may have read one of our previous blogs on nitric oxide, heart health, and energy, where we shared the impact it has on red blood cells to deliver oxygen from our lungs to all tissues in the body.

And one of the best ways besides staying active to increase nitric oxide production in the body is by consuming plenty of reds - red spinach, fermented beets, rhubarb, Aronia berries, or leafy greens like bok choy or arugula.
