#103 — Better Bloodflow & Healing for the Older Athlete w/Beth Shirley, RPh, CCN

If only there was one thing that: improved athletic performance, faster recovery from exercise, lower blood pressure, less plaque buildup in arteries, and improved immune function? It is called Nitric Oxide, and you have much less of it now than you did when you were young. The good news is you can get more, and the answer is simple. It isn’t easy, but it is simple.
