“Using Whole Foods to Support Healthy Blood Flow in Your Body and Mind”

Many people seek to avoid sodium nitrate — but what about the naturally occurring nitrates in vegetables? Might they hold the key to more energy and mental focus and improved blood flow to your brain and body?

  •  How the fermentation process in Dr. Mercola Fermented Beets with Red Spinach enhances its nitric oxide and blood-flow support benefits:*

    • Fermented Beets with Red Spinach contains both organic fermented beet powder and red spinach extract for one of the most powerful, complementary nitric oxide formulas ever.
    • Our formula provides a standardized dose of 30 mg of healthy nitrates from red spinach, which contains more than five times the amount of nitrate as regular, non-fermented beet powder and more than 50 times that in beetroot juice.
    • By utilizing organic fermented beet powder in our formula, we’re able to reduce the sugar content to 0 grams, a dramatic reduction from the typical 36% sugar content of regular beets.

More people are seeking ways to boost their overall health and energy by increasing their nitric oxide levels, but how do we increase those levels? First, let’s take a look at where nitric oxide comes from and how it works in your body.

The Skinny on Nitrates – Why You May Not Have to Avoid These ‘Good Guys’

The antioxidants in beets help protect against nitrite’s adverse effects

For many people, the word “nitrates” conjures up images of bacon, hot dogs, ham and other less-than-healthy cured meats.

But did you know that certain vegetables like beets, spinach and radishes also contain nitrates?

Before you swear off ever eating these prized vegetables again, let me assure you – the nitrates in each are not the same.

Cured meats contain added nitrites, and because they can convert into potentially dangerous nitrosamines, especially if heated, I definitely recommend that you avoid eating them as much as possible.

On the other hand, foods like beets and spinach contain naturally occurring nitrates. When consumed, the bacteria in your mouth convert these nitrates to nitrites, but because these vegetables are also rich in antioxidants, they don’t present a hazard to your health.

Instead, these naturally occurring nitrates may offer potential health benefits. And all because of their conversion to that remarkable substance known as nitric oxide.*

Blood Flow: Crucial for Brain and Cellular Health, and Healthy, Normal Blood Pressure

body’s and brain’s blood flow
Nitrates in vegetables are important for the blood flow in your body and brain.

The nitrates in vegetables boost the production of nitric oxide, or NO, in the cells that line your arteries.

These cells, your endothelial cells, line the entire interior surface of your circulatory system – from your heart to your distant capillaries.

NO is a soluble gas that’s continually produced from the amino acid, L-arginine, inside your cells.

This gas plays an important role in supporting normal endothelial function and protecting your cells’ powerhouses, or mitochondria.*

Acting as a potent vasodilator, nitric oxide helps widen the diameter of your blood vessels to allow a greater volume of blood to flow through.

And, as I’m sure you realize, healthy blood flow is what helps your body function at its best.

Your blood carries oxygen and nutrients to your brain and other organs. It nourishes and oxygenizes your immune system and muscles, and helps keep your heart beating. It also carries away wastes and carbon dioxide.

Healthy blood flow is essential for energy production and optimal health.

7 Ways to Support Your Healthy Blood Flow

Certain conditions can cause your blood flow or circulation to become less than optimal, including:

  • Aging affects your body’s ability to produce NO. On average, typical Americans eating the SAD (Standard American Diet) lose 10 percent of their ability to make nitric oxide every 10 years.
  • Inadequate sun exposure is likely your largest risk factor for insufficient NO production. When sunlight touches your skin, nitric oxide is released into your bloodstream, which is vital for both skin health and mitochondrial health.
  • Stress can constrict your arteries, thicken your blood and damage blood vessel linings.
  • Excessive sitting slows blood circulation to your organs and tissues.
  • Lack of exercise can cause blood in your pelvis and legs to pool and become stagnant.
  • Smoking harms your blood cells and damages the structure and function of your heart and blood vessels.
  • Fluoride and chlorine if present in your drinking and showering water can convert NO into other substances, including toxic and destructive nitric acid.
yoga exercise
Exercise, movement and yoga are all excellent ways to support healthy blood flow.

Fortunately, you can support a healthy blood flow in your body and brain by:

  • Getting regular sensible sun exposure on large areas of bare skin.
  • Not sitting for extended periods – give yourself frequent standing breaks.
  • Finding ways to move more during your day along with regular exercise.
  • Practicing meditation, yoga and deep breathing to calm your mind and relax tense muscles.
  • Supplementing with vitamins C and E, ginger and garlic (especially fermented forms), and L-arginine.*
  • Increasing your consumption of whole food sources of nitrates, like red beets and spinach.

When you take simple measures like these, you’re likely to discover you have new-found energy and a clearer, more focused mind.*

Most importantly, you’ll feel confident knowing you’re helping to nourish your heart, brain and muscles with the oxygen and nutrients they may need.*

Using Whole-Food Sources of Nitric Oxide to Support Energy Levels

The recent discovery of the "nitrate-to-nitrite-to-nitric oxide (NO) pathway" has placed whole food sources of nitrates center stage.

Researchers have found that nitrate-rich foods are associated with improved NO function and beneficial vascular effects. Consuming those foods can potentially help support:

  • Optimal blood flow to your muscles, brain, heart and other organs.*
  • Enhanced oxygen and nutrient delivery to your brain and body.*
  • Increased plasma nitrate levels which may boost nitric oxide.*
  • The pliability of arterial walls.*
  • Healthy blood pressure levels already in the normal range.*

Imagine how the rest of your life might improve if you felt more energetic?

Because I’m so passionate about living life to its fullest, I’ve developed a shortcut to help you optimize your nitric oxide level.*

Fermented Beets With Red Spinach – My ‘Go-to’ Nitric Oxide Supplement to Support Healthy Blood Flow

I wanted to formulate a supplement that would capture the goodness of beets for promoting healthy nitric oxide function and optimal blood flow.*

But while researching beets, I came across two important points:

  1. By fermenting the beets, I could potentially increase their beneficial effects.
  2. There’s another nitric oxide-boosting whole food source that offers more than five times the amount of nitrate as regular beet powder and more than 50 times that in beetroot juice!

You can imagine how excited I was when I learned these two facts. Now I knew my formula – Fermented Beets with Red Spinach – could offer even more potential benefits.

How Fermentation Takes an Already Phenomenal Food to the Next Level

The process of fermenting foods dates back thousands of years. Humans discovered that this ancient practice could make foods more digestible and more flavorful.

Beets are an excellent natural source of nitrates.

Now we know fermentation can change the nutritional makeup of foods, as it:

  • Helps pre-digest ingredients.
  • Increases levels of certain nutrients.
  • Improves mineral bio-accessibility.
  • Increases bioavailability of antioxidants.
  • Eliminates undesirable anti-nutrients.
  • Creates unique metabolites.
  • Increases alkalizing effect on the body’s pH.

The fermented whole food beet powder that comprises half of my Fermented Beets with Red Spinach formula is made using a precise, controlled process that interrupts the fermentation at its optimal point.

Here’s what I especially appreciate about the fermentation process with beets…

As you know, beets are very high in simple sugars – 36 percent to be exact. When they undergo fermentation, that number very quickly plummets to zero percent!

Fermentation effectively removes the simple carbs in beets as their glucose content converts to alcohol, which then quickly evaporates.

This is in stark contrast to some other non-fermented beet powders that may contain high levels of sugars, a potential concern for maintaining healthy blood sugar levels.*

More Than 50 Times the Amount of Nitrate in Beet Juice? Start Your Engines…

Recently, it was discovered that a special extract made from the leaves of red spinach (Amaranthus dubius), or as it’s commonly known – amaranth – could supply a standardized amount of nitrate – 9,000 mg of nitrate per 100 grams.

This is amazing news for anyone seriously interested in promoting healthy nitric oxide function, as this standardization has not been achieved before now.

The amount of nitrate in this red spinach extract is more than 50 times the amount found in beet juice and five times that in beetroot powder!

Red spinach, or amaranth, is very high in natural nitrates

While, in my eyes, this doesn’t diminish the value of the fermented beet powder in my formula, the addition of the red spinach extract simply creates one of the most powerful, complementary nitric oxide formulas ever!

The red spinach extract in my Fermented Beets with Red Spinach:

  • Is not genetically modified or genetically engineered.
  • Contains no oxalate – a potential concern when consuming large quantities of spinach, beet greens and Swiss chard.
  • Provides potassium.
  • Contains no sugar.
  • Contains no gluten.

Red spinach, or amaranth, isn’t new. It’s been traditionally used in Indian medicine and cooking. What is relatively new is the discovery of its enormous potential for supporting healthy nitric oxide function and blood flow.*

Frequently Asked Questions
  1. 1. Q: I take L-Arginine to support NO function for my blood flow. How is Fermented Beets with Red Spinach different?

    A: Whole food sources of nitrates are a different way to support NO function. They work via the “nitrate-nitrite-NO pathway” we discussed earlier. L-arginine works through a different pathway. Please check with your healthcare practitioner if you are considering taking both together.

  2. 2. Q: I’m trying to limit oxalate-containing foods. Should I be concerned about using Fermented Beets with Red Spinach?

    A: While certain greens like Swiss chard, spinach, and beet greens can contain very high levels of calcium absorption-blocking oxalate, the amaranthus extract in Fermented Beets with Red Spinach contains no oxalates.
