The cardiovascular cure is revolutionary amino acid that caught the attention of the medical community, and has been the focal point of numerous research studies. Arginine may well be the maintenance engineer of the cardiovascular system. This amino acid keeps the arteries clean by eradicating obstacles that may hinder adequate blood flow.
Arginine converts to Nitric Oxide during arginine metabolism in endothelial cells, and contributes to normal blood flow. Endothelium consists of flat cells that lined the body and lymphatic vessels, the heart, and various other body cavities. Normal blood flow is the heart of the cardiovascular cure.
Four grams of arginine daily is a rather inexpensive way to refurbish the endothelium. Arginine increases dilation of blood vessels, reduces that sticky substance that adheres to blood platelets, making them stick to the vessel walls causing blockage, and improves erectile dysfunction.
Arginine reduces the plaque that forms along the walls of vessels in patients with high cholesterol levels and artherosclerosis.
In laboratory testing, arginine has shown to be much more than a cardiovascular cure. Arginine has proven to…
- Reduce high blood pressure.
- Stimulate release of human growth hormone.
- Improve pituitary functions.
- Decrease bad cholesterol
- Improve memory.
- Improve peripheral vascular disease.
- Increase relaxation of smooth muscles.
The cardiovascular cure is safe and easily available at your health food store. But be sure to tell your health care provider that you’re taking arginine.
“The Cardiovascular Cure,” by John Cooke, Ph.D
“This book provides a lucid written description of EDRF and endothelial dysfunction. Treatment with exercise, a diet rich in arginine, vitamins, and anti-oxidants, is important to the many patients prone to develop heart attacks or stroke.”

A good night’s sleep is not just a remedy for grumpy moods, mental and physical lethargy. Researchers at the University of Chicago have recently discovered that adequate sleep makes your heart strong and healthy.
The research team noted that lack of sleep promotes calcium buildup in the heart arteries, causing plaque that eventually brakes off, blocks arteries, and leads to stroke and heart attack. The study suggests doctors warn their patients about lack of sleep, along with other rick factors such as diabetes, high cholesterol, and hypertension.
Chronic diseases are also conducive to sleep loss. Pain and pulmonary obstruction, the two most common ailments associated with chronic diseases, can keep you awake most of the night. Get relief for those maladies that prevent you from getting enough sleep.
The study shows eight hours sleep is ideal for human heart health. Anything less entertains heart risk. The closer you move toward a four hour sleep deficit, the greater your chances of developing coronary disease.

The American Heart Association updates its guidelines for the prevention of heart disease in women. The new 2007 guidelines now focus on the long term or lifetime risk of women, instead of the short term risk set forth in the 2004 guidelines.
The 2007 guidelines published February 19, in a special health issue of the Journal Circulation devoted to women’s health, expanded recommendations on the women’s lifestyle, and changed-up the way hormone therapy and vitamin and mineral supplements and aspirin are used in heart disease and stroke prevention in women.
This new update provides the most current clinical recommendations contributed by all areas of medicine. The new guidelines also cover primary and secondary prevention of chronic atherosclerotic vascular diseases.

The fat lady didn’t quite hit that high note. But a recent study produced enough evidence to prove folic acid an inexpensive way to reduce coronary disease.
This study examined the evidence from several studies, to verify whether increased homocysteine level in the blood is a cause of heart disease. Homocysteine is an amino acid associated with arterial disease.
Since folic acid reduces homocysteine levels, therefore increased folic acid intake may reduce the risk of coronary disease and stroke.

A Health Professionals Follow-up Study by the department of epidemiology and nutrition at Harvard reported that obesity and smoking are strongly associated with a greater risk of erectile dysfunction. The participants in the study reported very good erectile functions, and no chronic diseases before 1986. The researchers made adjustments to the results to account for reported prostate cancer treatments, which lead to erectile dysfunction.
The researchers found the obesity and smoking were associated with the development of ED. The findings strongly suggest that regular physical activity plays an important roll in averting erectile dysfunction. The study also showed an association of erectile dysfunction with coronary heart disease.
