Cardioforlife is a formulation containing optimal proportions of l-arginine and other nutrients for stable cardiovascular health.

The major aim of this formulation is to promote nitric oxide release in the body. Nitric oxide is a signaling molecule produced by the innermost lining of the blood vessels (the endothelium), which regulates the tone and width of the lumen (channel through which blood flows). In other words, it is responsible for the relaxation and dilation of blood vessels so that blood flows easily.

Of the contents of this powder, the most beneficial are L-arginine, L-citrulline, and Omega 3 fatty acids (from perilla oil).

L-arginine

Arginine is a semi-essential amino acid that has shown promise in the prevention of atherosclerosis (blockage of the arteries). L-arginine is a pure 100% free form arginine and is the precursor for endothelium-derived nitric oxide (EDNO). Three scientists were awarded the Nobel Prize In Medicine in 1998 for discovering nitric oxide’s role as a vasodilator. In a healthy endothelium (inner wall of a blood vessel), nitric oxide (NO) will keep vessels pliable and elastic, dilate (open up) blood vessels (for smooth blood flow), relax blood vessels, keep platelets and white blood cells calm and prevent them from sticking to the vessel wall, prevent oxidation, slow plaque growth, suppress atherosclerosis and melt away plaque that already exists.

The synthesis of nitric oxide by vascular endothelium is responsible for the vasodilator tone, which is essential for the regulation of blood pressure. Nitric oxide also inhibits platelet aggregation by a mechanism dependent on cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) and synergizes with prostacyclin, which inhibits the aggregation of platelets by increasing their concentrations of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP). In the central nervous system, nitric oxide is a neurotransmitter that underpins several functions, including the formation of memory. This is done by activating guanylyl cyclase to convert GMP to cGMP in the central nervous system. This leads to a further increase in the release of glutamate and a stable increase in synaptic transmission, a phenomenon known as long-term potentiation that is thought to be linked to memory formation in areas of the brain. Nitric oxide is also found in some peripheral nerves, where it may contribute to sensory transmission and may also be the transmitter or a modulator in nonadrenergic, noncholinergic nerves.

After arginine is consumed in foods and supplements, it makes its way into the bloodstream and circulates throughout the body. As it enters the endothelial cells that line the smooth muscle walls of blood vessels, an enzymatic reaction occurs that converts arginine to nitric oxide. As the levels of arginine rise in the body, so does your production of nitric oxide, which in turn can have a dramatic and positive effect on your cardiovascular health, brain health, sexual health, and even gastrointestinal health due to some of the suggested benefits of this – otherwise – important molecule.

There are over 85,000 medically published clinical studies attesting to the fact that arginine will help:

  • lower blood pressure

  • lower cholesterol and triglycerides

  • improve diabetes

  • improve sexual function

  • reduce blood clots and strokes

  • improve congestive heart failure

  • improve wound healing

  • improve liver and kidney function

  • improve memory and cognitive functions

  • increase human growth hormone (HGH)

  • improve muscle growth and performance, and much more.

L-citrulline

An amino acid that promotes energy, stimulates the immune system, and detoxifies ammonia, which damages living cells. L-citrulline is closely related to L-arginine and is found in many of the same protein-rich foods. In your body, L-citrulline is converted into L-arginine, which in turn increases the production of nitric oxide. This “turbo-charging” effect of the L-citrulline/L-arginine recycling pathway can, in fact, substantially increase nitric oxide production.

Omega 3 Fatty Acid

Omega EFA’s (essential fatty acids) are vital to good health, but they must be acquired through our diets or supplementation because the body is unable to manufacture EFA’s themselves. Leading doctors estimate that there is a direct correlation between this deficiency in Omegas and the modem proliferation of fat-related diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and adult-onset diabetes.

Furthermore, these doctors believe that simply supplementing the Omegas into one diet can dramatically reduce the onset of these deadly diseases. Over 2,000 scientific studies have demonstrated the wide range of problems associated with Omega-3 deficiencies.

The human brain is more than 60% structural fat, just as your muscles are made of protein and your bones are made of calcium. But it’s not just any fat that our brains are made of. It has to be certain types of fats, and we no longer eat these types of fats like we used to.

Worse, we eat man-made trans-fats and excessive amounts of saturated fats and vegetable oils high in Omega-6 fatty acids, all of which interfere which our body’s attempt to utilize the tiny amount of Omega-3 fats that it gets. Symptoms of fatty acid deficiency in our brain include irritability, attention deficit, hyperactivity, violent behavior, depression, food cravings, and dyslexia.

Again, it struggles and finally uses other types of fats, which are the wrong shape. The neural network develops slowly and is defective. Other parts of our bodies also need Omega-3 fatty acids. Symptoms of fatty acid deficiency include a variety of skin problems such as dry skin, eczema, thick patches of pale skin, cracked skin on heels or fingertips, dandruff, alligator skin, and “chicken skin” on the back of arms.

Signs of fatty acid deficiency elsewhere in our bodies include frequent urination, brittle (easily frayed) nails, dry, unmanageable hair, dry eyes, poor wound healing, frequent infections, excessive thirst, fatigue, and lowered immunity and allergies.

Extensive and strong evidence has shown that omega-3 fats can be very highly effective at helping to:

  1. Prevent heart disease and stroke

  2. Prevent sudden cardiac death

  3. Prevent & reverse arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat)

  4. Prevent cancer-breast, ovarian, colon, prostate, and pancreatic

  5. Prevent diabetes

  6. Fight depression

  7. Fight inflammatory diseases

  8. Fight weight gain

  9. Fight eczema

  10. Fight arthritis

  11. Fight memory problems

  12. Fight allergies

  13. Fight lupus

  14. Fight ulcerative colitis

  15. Fight learning disorders—dyslexia, ADD, ADHD

  16. Fight violent behavior

CardioForLife™ contains exciting new plant oil called Perilla oil. Perilla is a rich source of Omega 3 fatty acids and phytochemicals. Gram for gram, Perilla oil contains more Omega 3 (alpha-linolenic acid) than flaxseed oil and fish oil and without the gastrointestinal side effects.
