Say NO to heart disease

Good health plays a huge role in our ability to be our best. Perfect health is desired by almost everybody. The body is an incredible organism capable of repairing itself of environmental, viral, and bacterial stress. Yet over time, the body shows signs of succumbing to the onslaught of life through normal aging.

Can we reverse this process of the body breaking down? Is there a fountain of youth from which you and I can drink? Science has unlocked one of the keys to not only allowing you to live a long life, but a healthy life as well.

The Nobel Prize winner in Medicine in 1998 was awarded to Dr. Louis Ignarro, Dr. Ferid Murad, and Dr. Robert F. Furchgott for the discovery of the signalling properties of Nitric Oxide in the body. Blood vessels use NO to signal the surrounding smooth muscle to relax, thus dilating the arteries, increasing blood flow, and maintaining normal blood pressure. These blood vessels deliver oxygen and nutrients to, as well as remove waste products from, every cell in your body.

In short, NO maintains healthy blood pressure, reduces cardiovascular aging, promotes immunes system health, acts as a neurotransmitter which may help with memory, and more. NO is a very important molecule, and a large percentage of people are deficient in their production of NO, which places them at increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

You can enhance the production and effectiveness of NO in your body by exercising for 20 minutes, 3 times each week. You want an activity that will force you to breath deeply. Fast walking, jogging, bicycling, tennis are a few examples. You also need to have a healthy diet that is rich in L-Arginine, L-Citruline, Taurine, and Antioxidants. Supplements can also be a big help to ensure that you have the right balance to enhance NO production.

Dr. Louis Ignarro has endorsed Niteworks from Herbalife as the supplement for NO production. You can learn more from Dr. Ignarros' website and you can order Niteworks from
