Red Rush for the Long Run or Walk

How important is blood flow to our health? Why do we need to know about its importance or even how circulation works?

Do We Need a Circulation Education?

The word “circulation” is often brought up when there’s a health issue. Poor circulation leads to sensations of tingling, numbness, pain or muscle cramps often in the extremities: arms and hands, legs and feet. But poor circulation isn’t a condition. It’s often an indicator of an underlying health issue, possibly diabetes, heart problems or obesity. It may also relate to the physical state of the arteries that blood flows through.

Whatever the underlying cause, it is vital that this red rush continues to flow. It’s essential for maintaining good health. The circulatory system is like an internal river of life with a multitude of tributaries that allow nutrient- and oxygen-rich blood to reach the cells of the body. Interestingly enough, Red Rush beet juice concentrate can help to maintain this red rush coursing through the arteries.

The Arterial Connection

Of all of the possible underlying causes of poor circulation, starting with the “internal river and its tributaries” is a good place to begin because the arteries encompass the flow of blood.

If your arteries narrow, the pressure from blood flow increases, just as water in a wide, rushing river would increase in force where it narrows or is obstructed by boulders or a dam. Pressure builds at these points.

Your blood pressure increases if plaque from cholesterol or fatty deposits builds up on the arterial walls, making them narrower or harder. Lined with a layer of cells called the endothelium, arteries are normally smooth and elastic, which allows for normal circulation.

The “Red Rush” Rush

So what happens to arterial walls when you drink Red Rush? They relax. Why?

Beet nitrate—500 mg per shot of Red Rush—is converted into nitrite by the bacteria in your saliva. The nitrite is further converted into nitric oxide when it reaches your stomach.

Nitric oxide is an amazing molecule that has an equally amazing effect on arteries. It relaxes them so that they widen, allowing improved blood flow and lower blood pressure. This means that oxygen-rich blood has enhanced circulation throughout the body, allowing you to maximize your oxygen uptake. And when you use oxygen to the max during physical activity, it improves your stamina.

Suppose you normally go for a walk or a run and at a certain point, you find yourself becoming out of breath. By drinking Red Rush two hours before your walk or run (to allow time for conversion from nitrate to nitric oxide), when you reach that normally out-of-breath point, you’ll find that you can keep going because you’re getting a nitric oxide boost of stamina.

And if you’re a runner but not exactly the fittest on the block, beet juice helps to reduce your oxygen consumption.

Whether you’re a fit-as-a-fiddle athlete or a former couch potato on the move, Red Rush beet juice concentrate offers a natural way to boost nitric oxide levels that improve your physical endurance.

Under PRESSURE!

CDC statistics reveal that around 75 million adults in America—that’s 1 out of every 3 grown-ups or a whopping 32%—are living with high blood pressure (hypertension) . . . but for how long?

Apparently only 54 percent of those with hypertension have it under control. In 2014, there were 1,100 deaths every day that resulted from high blood pressure as either a primary or contributing cause, over 400,000 American deaths for that year alone.1  

As a result, tens of millions of people are under pressure to take medications to help lower their high blood pressure levels. At the same time, the figure of 75 million people with hypertension may also exist because of a major change to blood pressure level readings that occurred fifteen years ago.

Pressure Changes

For decades, a blood pressure level of 120/80 was considered to be ideal. Anything under 140 was okay. But a change took place in May 2003, when American doctors got new advice from the Joint National Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure, a government-sanctioned medical panel.

The advice was that suddenly 120 could be thought of as an unsafe level, an indication of a “new” condition termed prehypertension: 120 – 139 systolic pressure. 2 Of course, such readings would sell more hypertension drugs.

Many people who had previously been fine suddenly were told by their doctors that they needed to take blood pressure medication. Nothing had actually changed except for the potential increase in drug sales and the possible side effects that people taking them might experience, including the increased risk of heart failure or stroke. The concept of lowering your blood pressure is to avoid heart problems or stroke, not to take drugs that may possibly give you heart failure or a stroke.

In 2017, new and improved blood pressure guidelines suddenly appeared, so now people with 130/80 systolic pressure readings suddenly have hypertension, not prehypertension (which apparently no longer exists). “The new guideline increases the number of US adults recommended for drug therapy by 4.2 million.”3  And the figure of 75 million increased to more than 100 million American adults with high blood pressure.

High Blood Pressure Is Serious

Whatever you believe about these readings, high blood pressure is an indicator that your body is under serious pressure. According to the Mayo Clinic, the resulting dangers include damage to the:

  • Arteries
  • Kidneys
  • Heart
  • Brain
  • Eyes

What’s more: “High blood pressure (hypertension) can quietly damage your body for years before symptoms develop.” 4

AIM to Naturally Lower Blood Pressure

It’s not that all medicine is bad for you. There are medical conditions which require drugs as the best, immediate answer. However, it is the proliferation of long-term medicating for health problems that can be improved by lifestyle changes alone that is something worth changing on a widespread and individual level.

Research shows that a diagnosis of high blood pressure may not be one of those life or death situations requiring medication because there are natural options for getting it under control. For example, the Mayo Clinic offers 10 ways to control high blood pressure without medication, one of which includes what should be obvious: eat a healthy diet.5 Or check out the 3 steps from the Good Men Project that include drinking beet juice and eating anti-inflammatory, alkalizing foods and supplementing with non-GMO barley grass, carrot and beet juice powders.6

AIM offers additional lifestyle modifications, some as simple as taking the Garden Trio or drinking Red Rush beet juice concentrate, choices that supplement a healthy diet.

A healthy diet includes a fair amount of plant-based foods because of the incredible variety of healthy nutrients they provide. The Garden Trio delivers concentrated nutrients in the juice powders of barley grass, carrots and beets (more vegetable nitrate as well).

One shot of Red Rush beet juice contains 500 mg of vegetable nitrate, which your body converts to nitric oxide (NO). It’s funny how something abbreviated to “NO” can be so good for you. It has a relaxing effect on arteries, widening them so that blood flows more easily, and lower blood pressure results. 7  It is that simple. Sometimes taking “NO” for an answer is positive.

If you find yourself suddenly under pressure after a diagnosis of hypertension, know that there are natural options for lowering blood pressure.

Arterial Stiffness: Your Greatest Indicator of Cognitive Decline

Beet Juice.png
Blood pressure, blood pressure, blood pressure. Commercials, those doctor TV shows, those TV doctor shows, friends, family, real-life doctors, labels on health foods, they are all obsessed with blood pressure. That’s not to say that blood pressure isn’t important (it very much is), but our constant singular focus on blood pressure might cause us to overlook an equally important underlying factor: arterial stiffness.

Arterial stiffness is caused by the aging process and arteriosclerosis. It is dangerous because it forces your heart to beat harder in order to pass blood through stiff, unresponsive veins. As arteries become more rigid, demands on the heart increase, eventually damaging it.

That’s not the only bad that can come from inflexible arteries. A study published in Hypertension found that arterial stiffness was a better indicator of future cognitive decline in healthy people than high blood pressure was. Hypertension has been previously linked to mild cognitive decline and dementia, but by assessing the veins of nearly 600 healthy adults, the researchers were better able to predict which ones were at the greatest risk of developing cognitive decline. Unsurprisingly, those who suffered from both arterial stiffness and high blood pressure were at the greatest risk but that the danger might be more from their adamant arteries.

From the Press Release

“Our study suggests that cognition in hypertensive individuals is more likely related to the underlying functional changes in the arterial structure, rather than simply to the blood pressure level”, adds Hajjar.
What Can Be Done About Arterial Stiffness?

It can be summed up in the two words that nobody likes to hear: Diet and exercise.

Add Red Rush Beet Juice To A Healthy Diet

The cool thing about beet juice is that it slides right into a DASH (Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension). Additionally, a study published in Clinical Nutrition Research found that high doses of dietary nitrate (the active ingredient in Red Rush) reduced post-meal arterial stiffness by almost 7 percent and systolic blood pressure by 5.9 mmHg. It improved the baseline indexes of both as well.

And Red Rush Can Help You Exercise!

Exercise has been shown in several studies to improve the health of your veins. There is even evidence that exercise can restore proper vein functioning in formerly sedentary people and/or older adults. Dietary nitrate makes exercise about 10% easier. (Wider, flexible veins boost performance by almost all accounts). This means that Red Rush will not only assist you diet-wise, it can also be employed to give you a kick-start in the exercise department as well.
