Nitric Oxide Cardioboost
For overall cardiovascular health, the importance of nitric oxide (NO)-often called the “miracle molecule” cannot be overstated. In fact, NO is such an important heart health indicator that in 1998, the discovery of “nitric oxide as a signaling molecule” won the Nobel Prize in Medicine. NO signals your blood vessels to expand, allowing them to relax, and your blood to move unfettered. When your blood flows freely, it can do its job efficiently, nourishing your heart, brain, lungs, eyes-and every other organ and cell in your body. The problem is, as you age, your body has a more difficult time producing NO, which is why one of the most important things you can do for the health of your vascular system is to ensure that you have optimal nitric oxide levels. Dr. Whitaker’s Nitric Oxide CardioBoostTM addresses the body’s natural decline in NO with 3 effective, clinically studied ingredients. Each plays a specific role in nitric oxide production and synthesis, with powerful antioxidant properties to support endothelial health. Pycnogenol helps delay the digestion of starches by inhibiting the enzyme responsible for breaking down complex sugars into single glucose molecules. This supports normal fasting and post-prandial blood sugar levels. Amla provides antioxidant support that helps protect cells from the damaging effects of free radicals. Plus, studies show it promotes healthy triglycerides and LDL and HDL cholesterol levels. And quercetin supports healthy cholesterol levels and healthy endothelial function. This powerful trio of nutrients has been shown to aid in the production of nitric oxide, while supporting overall vascular health and healthy blood sugar levels.
