L-arginine contributes to a healthy cardiovascular system

Eating a healthy diet, managing stress and getting plenty of exercise are all known to reduce the risk of high blood pressure and keep the cardiovascular system in better state

High blood pressure is a dangerous health condition that affects nearly 30% of Americans. The ingredients contained in the health supplement L-Arginine Plus have been shown to be a contributor in maintaining healthy blood pressure levels.

Clinical trials have demonstrated that oral supplementation of L-arginine can promote the increased production of nitric oxide (NO) in the body, which can have positive effects on the cardiovascular system through vasodilation, a process in which blood circulation is increased through the relaxation of the smooth muscle tissue in the walls of blood vessels.

These findings have profound implications for how the medical community treats people with and those at risk for a heart attack or stroke. Integrating L-Arginine Plus with a healthy diet can have significant cardiovascular benefits, without side-effects, and at a much lower cost than many competitors' products.

In 1998, three American scientists, including Dr Louis Ignarro, the author of 'No More Heart Disease,' discovered how the chemical compound, nitric oxide, plays a vital role in optimal functioning of the cardiovascular system. His research was the inspiration behind the development of L-Arginine Plus, now available for thousands of people.

Nitric oxide allows blood vessels to relax and widen, and decreases blood viscosity, promoting increased circulation capacity and lowering blood pressure. High blood pressure develops as plaque builds up along arterial walls over time, which in effect hardens and narrows the arteries and forcing the heart to work harder to pump blood through the body to provide oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to all vital organs.

As blood has to be pumped harder, and essentially forced through the blood vessels, it causes damage to arterial walls. This damage encourages more substances to build up along artery walls, leading to further hardening and narrowing and more severe blood pressure levels. When a clot forms, blood flow may be completely blocked, which may lead to a heart attack, stroke or other very serious health problems, depending on where the clot forms.

Enhancing diet with L-arginine amino acid can help to diminish the negative effects of this process. Health supplement L-Arginine Plus increases the body's production of nitric oxide. With more of this beneficial compound in the body, blood pressure may be reduced and circulation improved.

While L-arginine is a nutrient found naturally in the diet, without supplementation it can be difficult to retain high levels in the bloodstream. The L-Arginine Plus formula combines L-arginine with L-citrulline, another amino acid that is found in limited quantities in food. L-citrulline has the effect of significantly increasing the effects of arginine, making the combination of these two amino acids key for increasing the production of NO, which in turn helps to reduce blood pressure levels. Remarkably, research shows that these amino acids taken in supplemental form may be more effective for increasing blood levels of NO and reducing high blood pressure than ingesting in the diet, mainly due to much of the nutrient being lost in the metabolic process.

A large proportion of American adults suffer from high blood pressure. Eating a healthy diet, managing stress and getting plenty of exercise are all known to reduce the risk of high blood pressure and keep the cardiovascular system in better state.

Even with this knowledge, heart disease continues to be the highest cause of death in the USA, threatening the well-being of millions of people. L-Arginine Plus has been designed to help address some of these problems. With the positive effects of daily intake of arginine and the increased production of NO, this supplement offers profound health benefits for individuals who want to support their well-being and maintain a healthy cardiovascular system.
