Dr. Louis Ignarro – No More Heart Disease
One of my friends, Kara Grabenhorst, recently posted an article on her Facebook page titled “Doctor exhorts women to take charge of heart health”. She also stated that heart disease is the #1 killer of woman. Wow, that’s alarming and yet I shouldn’t be surprised.
After reading her post, I was inspired to write about Dr. Louis Ignarro (click to go to his website), who won the Nobel Prize for the discovery of Nitric Oxide (NO). Since his discovery, he has been spreading the good news about heart disease. He says “you can reduce the risk or prevent heart disease through my NO-boosting regimen“.
Here’s an article written by Dr. Louis Ignarro titled
“What Nitric Oxide Can Do For Your Health”:It’s like a trip to the gym for your cardiovascular system With heart health a leading concern among both men and women in America, you need every advantage you can get in protecting yourself. The discovery of an amazing molecule, nitric oxide (NO), can help provide you with just this sort of protection.
NO improves circulation by helping blood vessels signal the surrounding smooth muscle to relax–which widens the arteries, increases blood flow and helps maintain normal blood pressure. NO keeps your system youthful, toned, and flexible. In fact, optimizing NO production is like giving your cardiovascular system a workout every day! In addition to its numerous heart-health benefits, NO also promotes immune-system health and acts as a neurotransmitter.
Say yes to NO Unfortunately, a large percentage of people are deficient in their production of NO, which puts them at increased risk of CVD. But using amino acids like L-arginine and L-citrulline, as well as antioxidants, you can actually increase your body’s own production of NO.
Quick tips from the doctor: Eat a healthy diet low in saturated fat to reduce the risk of plaque build-up in arteries. Daily exercise improves the elasticity of your blood vessels. Get a full night’s sleep to rest and revitalize. Here’s a video with Dr. Louis Ignarro explaining NO:
