Prof. Ihor Huk, Chief of the Department of Surgery at Wiener Privatklinik, a doctor of medicine and scientist appreciated with over 300 papers, published in valuable medical journals, revealed to Doctor of the Day, which are the latest discoveries in health.
"The doctors' recommendations are obsolete, they are from the seventeenth century, and we live in the 21st century. Even my students learn from those old textbooks and when I asked them what is the most important element in our body, 99% said that oxygen. Wrong! We know for 20 years that oxygen is not the most important element in our body, but nitric oxide, and a scientist, a friend of mine, took a Nobel Prize in 1997. "
According to Prof. Huk, the heart can beat more without oxygen than without nitric oxide. If we remove the nitric oxide from the heart, it stops immediately. The brain, the long-term memory works, coding information with nitric oxide. The immune system fights bacteria, with viruses, with cancer, with the help of nitric oxide. "Now you understand why nitric oxide is more important than oxygen?"
Nitric oxide is obtained from food
Oxygen is easily obtained by repressing. But nitric oxide is obtained through food from nitrogen-containing foods. What should we eat to get nitric oxide? "Pumpkin or nuts because these foods have a high concentration of arginine, an amino acid needed to synthesize nitric oxide in the body. If you eat these foods daily, the memory will be very good and the blood vessels very healthy. It takes 100-150 grams of arginine per day. But it's impossible to eat pumpkin and nuts daily, so you can take arginine capsules, "Professor Huk explained to Doctor of the Day.
Apart from arginine, there are also factors related to nitric oxide. Calcium is one of them. "Besides calcium, you also need vitamin D3, which is actually a hormone, today we all know that D3 is a hormone controlling calcium. We also need vitamin K2 that controls calcium and prevents its accumulation in kidney stones. If you have all these factors, then the brain, the blood vessels, the heart, the immune system will work perfectly. You will never get sick, I guarantee you, "said Prof. Ihor Huk, for Doctor of the Day.
That's why the physician's recommendation is for each of us to go to analyzes every year to check the calcium and vitamin D3 levels. "I take between 15 and 20 thousand units of D3 a day. The doctors' recommendations are outdated, 2000-5000 units are very small, you can not overdose by D3, our body needs very large amounts, that's why many people are deficient, "added Chief of the Department of Surgery at Wiener Privatklinik.
"If I take your calcium from your body, you will die"
Prof. Huk says we also need 500 milligrams of calcium per day and 100-200 micrograms of vitamin K2. "Most doctors recommend taking magnesium without thinking about the elements from which the human body is built. We need 40 times less magnesium than calcium. If I take your calcium out of your body, you'll die. 99% of the human body is built of 6 elements: Oxygen (65%), Carbon (18%), Hydrogen (10%), Nitrogen (3%), Calcium (1.5%) Phosphorus (1.2). The remaining 11 elements are below 1%: Potassium (o, 2%), Sulfur (0.2%), Chlorine (0.2%), Sodium (0.1% (<0.05%), Cobalt (<0.05%), Copper (<0.05%), Zinc (<0.05%), Iodine (< %), "Professor Huk said.
