These 8 Red Foods Increase Circulation

If feeling a “zest” for life, looking your best, and living an active life doing it is important to you… you’ve already heard of “reds” drinks, right? In short, many of nature’s top fruits and vegetables that support a healthy heart, circulatory health, and healthy energy levels are some shade of red…And “reds” drinks provide you with a quick and easy way to enjoy many different red fruits and veggies in one convenient drink.

So first, yes, in general, all the buzz about reds drinks is true. However, there are some essentials you need to be aware of when it comes to choosing a reds drink. Now, the great news is that there is finally a reds drink you can trust that provides 8 specific foods that can quickly provide energizing support for an active lifestyle and a serious “zest for life” every day – without any of the worries!

It’s called Eternal Reds.™ But in order to understand why it works, it is mission-critical that you are first aware of two big problems:

Problem #1 – – which can be summed up as “Sluggish Blood” – helps explain why so many people feel like something is “mysteriously” dragging their daily energy and zest for life way down in the first place. So, let’s start by having you assess if you experience any of these more than you feel you should:

  • Low energy
  • Old-looking skin
  • Lack of stamina/feeling worn out
  • Feeling “foggy”
  • Cold hands and/or feet
  • Slow recovery from physical activity
  • Activity-related muscle cramping and/or discomfort

Now, if you said yes to any of these, “sluggish blood” is likely something you should be concerned about. So, what is it? Well, amazingly, a healthy circulatory system transports about 2000 gallons of blood through its 60,000 or so miles of blood vessels each day. And this circulatory system is a vast network of vessels and organs whose job is to move blood around the body. It’s responsible for the proper delivery of oxygen, nutrients, hormones, and immune factors to tissues and cells, as well as carrying away waste products.

But it’s when these things are not running so smoothly, when blood begins to act a little more “sluggish,” that you take notice. Because that’s when you might start to notice that it’s harder to stay active and energized!

Now, the answer to why “sluggish blood” is dragging so many people’s energy, feelings of well-being, and even appearance down in recent years is, unfortunately, easy to answer. It’s “unfortunate” because the answer really can be summed up as certain very common lifestyle habits that are also harming our health in so many other ways, such as:

  • Consuming too many omega-6 fatty acids
  • Consuming too many processed foods
  • Inadequate amounts of exercise
  • Lack of routine stretching
  • Not getting enough restful sleep
  • Excess stress

And, yes, doing the hard work of making permanent changes in any these areas above can certainly help. However, the good news again is that you do not need to wait to enjoy support that can help you stay active and energized while helping you look and feel your best. Because there are eight highly effective foods that can help. Before that, though, it’s important to know…

Problem #2 -- Which can be summed up as “not being aware.” 

You see, there’s a fast-growing number of “reds” powders and energy drinks out there. And it’s important to be aware of key issues with some of them. For example, you’ll want to watch out for:

  1. Nitric Oxide Boosters
    Yes, nitric oxide is very important. It’s a vasodilator that helps open up blood vessels to allow for optimal blood flow. However, like most things in the body, it’s about balance – having the right amount at the right time. In other words, too much of anything can be bad news, and that can even be the case with added nitric oxide boosters.
  2. Many are Loaded with Caffeine and/or Other Stimulants
    Caffeine, stimulants, and other habit-forming compounds can lead to dependence and tolerance.
  3. Not Using the Most Effective Ingredients
    For example, l-arginine is a common ingredient, but it has been shown largely ineffective at increasing nitric oxide synthesis and/or bioavailability. (L-citrulline is a more effective option for optimizing nitric oxide production, and that’s why it’s in Eternal Reds!)
  4. Bad Taste and Poor Mixability
    Some reds powders can have mediocre to terrible taste, unpleasant textures such as grittiness, and poor mixability (otherwise known as “clumpy mess”).
  5. Artificial Sweeteners, Added Sugars, and Other Junk
    Some energy drinks and reds powders can contain these, and you don’t want them in your body.

 

Now, when it comes to the solution, as always, nature knows what it’s doing, and there are eight red foods that can help. So, let’s take a deeper dive to understand exactly how…

Beets: Beets are known as a “circulation superfood”. They’re a rich source of phytochemicals and bioactive compounds, and can help support healthy nitric oxide levels, blood flow/circulation (including to the brain), mental and physical energy levels, endurance, and more.

Apples: Apples are rich in polyphenols called flavonoids, which can be especially important for supporting healthy circulation, such as by promoting the production of nitric oxide. These flavonoids may support the activity of nitric oxide synthase (eNOS), an enzyme that generates nitric oxide. eNOS has been referred to as a “major weapon” in the fight against sluggish blood.

Pomegranates: Pomegranates are revered as a circulatory superfood. One reason is that they may enhance eNOS activity, which promotes nitric oxide production. What’s more, tannins in pomegranates have been shown to provide additional support for healthy endothelial cell (endothelial cells line the blood vessels), offering further support for healthy circulation.

Grapes: Grapes are rich in certain polyphenols shown to support healthy blood flow, effects believed to be related to increasing the availability of nitric oxide, the vasodilator responsible for relaxing blood vessels.

Cranberries: Cranberries are loaded with certain bioactive polyphenols that have been shown to provide powerful support for healthy, flexible arteries and healthy vascular function.

Blackberries, Raspberries, Strawberries: One of the many powerful polyphenols in these berries are anthocyanins. These can help promote vascular health by supporting the body’s natural antioxidant pathways. This is important because oxidative damage to the endothelial cells may interfere with their ability to produce nitric oxide, a well-known vasodilator. Anthocyanins also support healthy blood flow by promoting the expression of eNOS, an enzyme that generates nitric oxide.

Now, however, here’s one final “real-world” problem…It can be very difficult to consume some much less all eight of these foods on a daily basis, and costly and inconvenient to routinely buy fresh supplies of each of these foods and veggies. And even if you did, you’d have to consume a substantial amount to make sure you’re getting enough of their powerful polyphenols in your body. That’s why we’re excited to announce what we believe is one of the most beneficial supplements to come out in years…Eternal Reds™!

Eternal Reds provides you with a simple way to get all eight of the polyphenol-rich “reds” foods in their premium forms each day. Plus, Eternal Reds goes a big step further by providing you with a special performance blend of three additional nutrients:

  • L-Citrulline: When it comes to providing support for healthy nitric oxide levels, L-citrulline works like a charm. And note that Eternal Reds uses L-citrulline, which is pure citrulline, not the citrulline malate that is only half citrulline!
  • Taurine: Taurine is another amino acid sometimes regarded as a circulation “super-nutrient.” Taurine is outstanding for supporting the “highways” in the body on which blood travels.
  • Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C): Another circulation support nutrient, Vitamin C is a well-known antioxidant that helps support healthy circulation and blood flow through various pathways, and healthy levels of oxidative stress.

There’s finally a way to support “vigorous blood” to help you stay active and energized while helping you look and feel your best.
