Prevent, halt and reverse cardiovascular disease, anti-age the body and
stop free radical damage to the body and vessels.
As we age, our Nitric Oxide producing system breaks down and we produce less and less Nitric Oxide (NO). This breakdown is a risk to our health and well-being.
The therapeutic benefits of L-Arginine producing Nitric Oxide have been
validated by thousands of scientific studies. Let’s take a look at them here…
(The following report, which is backed up by incredible scientific research, shows the many health benefits of L-Arginine in
the human body. Herewith, are 89 different arginine health benefits from thousands of studies over many years along with
their scientific references).
L-Arginine is a semi-essential amino acid produced in the liver and found in protein rich foods like
fish and red meat. Medical research performed by Dr. Rainer Boger, MD, a 29-year cardiovascular
disease researcher, has established that taking 2 doses of 6,000 mgs of Arginine/Citrulline each day
about 12 hours apart, produces at least 4 times, and as much as 8 times more Nitric Oxide than any
other product on the market.
Dr. Boger has derived many scientific discussions from these studies and from his own research. He
has published over 100 peer reviewed scientific studies on Arginine and Cardiovascular Disease. He
is the #1 researcher in the world on this subject. Go to www.cardioandheartwellness.com to learn
