Citrulline Stronger for Men

A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled cross-over study conducted by researchers at the University Medical Centre Hamburg-Eppendorf, Germany showed oral L-citrulline increased L-arginine blood levels and boosted nitric oxide-dependent signaling and therefore levels of cGMP much more effectively than L-arginine. Other studies have confirmed that supplementing with L-citrulline can actually reverse blood vessel lining dysfunctions! Click here […]

Keep Calcium Out of Your Arteries!

From assisting the development of bone, to preventing arterial calcification, to fighting off cancer and inflammation, vitamin K is the new hot nutrient and for good reason.

Natto for Blood Flow

Fibrinogen (a blood clotting protein) levels rise as we get older. And high levels of fibrinogen usually lead to increased platelet aggregation, blood clots, and eventually heart attack or stroke. High fibrinogen levels are considered a more dangerous risk factor for heart attack and stroke than high cholesterol. A study of 2,116 men found that […]

What is Vitamin K?

Originally identified as a fat-soluble nutrient required for normal blood coagulation, vitamin K is actually a family of similar compounds, which recent research reveals are also necessary for integrating calcium into bone and preventing its deposit within blood vessels. The latest research also indicates vitamin K possesses significant anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory actions. In nature, vitamin […]

It is responsible for a wide variety of central nervous system effects, including emotional equanimity, restful sleep, the regulation and perception of pain, sexual behavior, appetite control, and […]

The Microcirculatory System

Medical researchers now know that poor microcirculation is one of the single biggest contributing factors to the health problems we commonly associate with the macrocirculatory system. In other words, a heart attack is most likely the long-term result of a damaged microcirculatory system. For example, we’ve all heard of blockages in the coronary artery, and […]
