Cardiovascular health Q&A with Dr Ferid Murad

Q: Why does L-arginine represent a powerful tool for cardio support?

A: Unlike some conventional approaches to cardiovascular health, L-arginine provides a safe and effective support of one's supplementation armamentarium, without adverse effects. Millions of servings that include 5g per serving of L-arginine, together with other nutritional ingredients, have now been consumed without many of the side effects associated with other approaches. Thus, there is now a natural method of creating nitric oxide in the human body.

Q: What characteristics/benefits of ARGI+ do you find most compelling?

A: I think the addition of certain fruit extracts is a very interesting approach-a cocktail of antioxidants and/or phytonutrients that may help trigger the pathway from L-arginine to NO production. There are some fruit extracts that are now becoming very popular for maintaining one's cardio health such as pomegranate extract, grape extract, and so forth.    Courtesy: WJ
