L- Arginine - the magic bullet for cardiovascular health 
Our arteries and capillaries are plugged because of a nitric oxide deficiency. This is reversible 
by making nitric oxide available to our bodies. The Nobel peace prize was awarded for this discovery.

This could be one of the most important pages you will ever read. Read it all.  
This is not just a sales page trying to sell you a product that will cure your heart disease by 
removing plaque from your arteries.  We are giving you a chance at having a healthy life again!
Just as we say about heaven and hell, there is option A (being good and try to get there on your 
own works) and Option B (the salvation of Jesus), but only option B gives you eternal life in heaven.  
1 second after you die your spirit will go eternally to one of those two places; there are NO other 
options. As sinners, we can't enter God's kingdom on option A. So choose life, option B. If you 
want to extend your life in good health before that 1 second arrives,  2 scoops three times a day 
of My Cardio4Life is what it takes. This is a story and a mission. Besides losing plaque in your arterial network, you will also lose weight with this product because if you give your body minerals it won't crave food. There are 8 fortified and 70 plant derived ionic minerals in MyCardioForLife. Ingredient list.   Cleaning your arteries and capillaries of plaque will also remove your erectile dysfunction problem. 
When you restore the pathways for the blood to flow to your organ, it will flow. Erectile dysfunction 
is a leading indicator that your arteries and capillaries are severely restricted. Remove the plaque, be functional again.  It's that simple. I will also talk about a second similar good product ProArgi-9.

Why do we need this?
Heart disease is the number 1 killer in our nation today. 2500 Americans die of heart disease 
every day. That's a 911 twin towers equivalent everyday. That's a filled football stadium every 
month. Heart disease kills more than the next 9 causes of death put together. 1 out of 2.5 women 
will die of heart disease. 500,000 women worldwide will die of heart disease this year. 77% of 
American soldiers who fought in the Korean war in the early 50's were autopsied with heart disease. 
The Korean soldiers autopsied had none. Reason? Diet; and the GMO foods we are forced to eat 
which is in virtually everything today does not help. Every 20 seconds someone in the US 
has a heart attack and that figure is up from every 29 seconds last year.  And ironically heart 
disease can be both prevented and reversed. Now! Today!  We now know what causes it and 
we know how to eliminate it and reverse it. The rest is up to you.  Read on.

I have the answer to lowering your blood pressure without expensive big pharma meds 
which are not only a patch job, but mostly ineffective, very costly, are downright dangerous, and 
have many negative side effects.
In fact, I have many answers; email me for the heart e-books, they're free.  But there is 
one method that works for everyone. The use of L Arginine to make your body 
produce nitric oxide to roto rooter the plaque out of your arteries. I have good news 
and bad news about this.  The good news is, it works. It really works well.  The bad news is, 
it takes more than 1 jar/mo or one scoop a day to get the job done.  It takes two or more scoops 
a day just as a maintenance level after you get there. Plan on being on this for life if you want to 
maintain healthy arteries as once we pass 50-60 our bodies only produce 15% of the 
nitric oxide we did at age 20. Optimal dose is  2 scoops three times a day to really get 
there, but in three to six months of a regimine of two scoops three times a day, preferably 
an hour or more before or after a meal ( you shouldn't take it with any protein within this plus or 
minus an hour time frame), you can have clean arteries. Once I started this 2 scoops three times 
a day regimine,   I really started seeing results on my Omron blood pressure meter.

Why nitric oxide? Just what does it do that warrants such claims?
Nitric oxide keeps blood platelets from sticking together. This helps to prevent blood clots 
from occurring in the cardiovascular system, thereby reducing the risk for strokes and heart 
attacks.  Nitric oxide is your body's most powerful vasodilator to relax the smooth muscle of 
your vascular wall, which properly controls blood pressure. This improves blood flow and directly addresses the number one cause of strokes and heart attacks.
Nitric oxide is the signaling molecule of your entire cardiovascular system. You could not live 
without nitric oxide.  It is critical to your health. It is the component that will roto rooter the plaque 
from your arterial network.  77% of Americans treated for a first stroke had high blood pressure 
caused by clogged arteries loaded with plaque. 69% of Americans who experienced a first heart 
attack also had high blood pressure. 
In our bodies we have an organ called the endothelium. The endothelium is only one cell thick 
yet it lines the inside of our heart, arteries, arterioles, veinoles, (in and out capillaries) and veins. 
The endothelium is considered the largest secreting organ in our body and it regulates our 
cardiovascular system. One of the ways it does this is by converting the amino acid L Arginine 
into nitric oxide.

How did we arrive at the "you need 2 scoops three times a day" figure? 
Well, to make a long story short my upline was contacted by a woman he has been in communication with 
for years who had a husband with 75%-90% blockage in his arteries and was about ready to check 
out of this world. She told him her story of using ProArgi-9, another L Arginine product, and how it is 
cleaning their arteries as well as a woman who in 6 months arrived at the point of 100% free plaque 
in her arteries. I mean like it was all gone. The dosages they were all using was 2 scoops three times a day, 30 grams of L Arginine a day. Not the one or two scoops a day printed on the labels. Reason? Legalities of course. And maybe the companies figured if they told what was really needed people 
would think it too expensive to want to try it.

My upline has been working with a Dr Elwardt
for quite a few years now on the L Arginine thing. Dr Elwardt's latest Formula - My CardioForLife
is really good stuff, but due to legal reasons, the 2 scoops three times a day, which he confided
with us after we hit him up on the ProArgi9 thing, IS optimum dose, not what's printed on the label,
and the 2 scoops three times a day does not appear on the can, again, for legal reasons.  He even
told me he has body builders using five scoops just before a workout to get maximum results. My 
upline followed Dr Elwardt's journeys as he improved his formulations. Dr Elwardt formulated the 
Cardio Cocktail formula from ForMor Co. but found they were more interested in making money in 
MLM than providing the right quantities of what we needed to cure heart disease. When they started shortchanging  the formula to make more profits, he left them. He then formulated the Mega 
Cardio Health drink from GoodLife.com.  And you can still buy that there.  The problem is, it tastes 
awful. You have to chase it with something right away to get it down. Both of those were liquids
and quite bulky and therefore also expensive for shipment.  
He has now set up his own supply/manufacturing and improved the formulation even further and 
made it into a powder that tastes good, using Stevia as the sweetener, the only zero calorie sweetener 
on the market that is good for you. Why  don't coke and pepsi and a gazillion other products that use an artificial sweetener use stevia?   Because it is expensive.   The Mycardi4life powder comes in three 
flavors - orange, peach, and grape.  They all three taste good. I like the peach best. He's got a real 
winner this time.
You can see the ingredients list here, further down on this page, and a detailed explanation of what 
each of these components  does  here

Note that 100mg of CQ10 - (100mg PER SCOOP, an expensive necessary component) is included besides the 5000mg of L Arginine and 200mg of L-Citrulline per scoop, and check out the AstraGin component. 100mg/day  of just CoQ10 is $20/mo alone - 1200mg/day would cost over $200/mo) -  
And you get significant doses of lots of other things including magnesium, B12, 5000 units of D3, chromium, vitamin E, potassium, 50mg of resveratrol, 100mg selenium, and 25 mg grapeseed 
extract - per scoop.  Multiply that by 6 scoops a day.    
ProArgi9 is pretty much bare bones except for the L arginine (again 5000 mg per scoop) , and 
they won't tell you how much L Citrulline is in it (proprietary?) , and it also contains vitamin K which 
Dr Elwardt says conflicts with many medications and may not be a good thing. On my page at  www.mycardioforlife.com/ivorycandle  is this link showing product comparisons of what's in them 
for the MyCardioForLife powder versus the ProArgi-9 formula. http://mycardioforlife.com/ivorycandle/heartdisease_label.html#comp1  is the direct link for the 
product comparison page.  Dr Elwardt told me the ProArgi-9 formula is good product and works 
though. He has nothing bad to say about them.  

In a one jar version, MyCardioForLife is 75% less expensive than ProArgi-9; $40 versus $70.
But at a 6 jar purchase (30 scoops per jar in each brand) for $225, 180 scoops each , they are 
equal in price at $37.50/jar. At a 12 jar purchase MyCardioForLife is less than $30/jar, still 30 
scoops per jar, with  free shipping. That brings your cost down for the 2 scoops three times a day 
plan to $180/mo.  And that's comparing MLM distributor pricing for ProArgi-9. If you 
are just a preferred customer, it will cost you more. And if you want to make money on a downline 
or people you refer to ProArgi-9, you have to purchase a distributor kit for $36, purchase a minimum quantity of product to retain qualifying PV points, and be on autoship. Most MLM's are like that. 
ProArgi-9 is an MLM, multi level marketing company,  which means you can make money on your 
downline sales also, but not as much on your direct sales per jar as you can from MyCardioForLife.
More fish to feed from the profits in an MLM.  

MyCardioForLife is not an MLM, but does have a good affiliate program where you  make good 
money on every jar sold, FOUR LEVELS DEEP  from those you referred to the  affiliate program. 
Just go to  http://mycardioforlife.com/ivorycandle   and click on "affiliate info" at the top of the 
page to sign up. You do not pay a cost to become a distributor as there are no distributors.   It is 
free to become an affiliate.  You do not have to purchase any quantity of product to be able to 
receive compensation from direct or downline sales. There is no autoship requirement although you 
can go on autoship to make sure you receive an order every month.

And if you buy product at 12 cans/order you are getting product at $30/jar and free shipping. 
Taking two scoops three times a day will only cost you $180/mo.  If you buy from your own affiliate 
website you are saving an additional $60 in rebates (12 canisters x $5/can) which gets the cost down 
to $120/mo or $25/canister. You can't buy 1200mg/day  of just the CoQ10 component you are getting 
for $180/mo.  Once you reach your blood pressure goal and drop back to 2 or 4 scoops a day maintenance dose it will only cost you $60 - $100/mo or less if you buy in 12 canister lots from your 
own affiliate website. 

to buy the mycardioforlife  powder and sign up as an affiliate to make money from sales to others
for articles and videos on why you need this. especially watch the videos, they are all good. 

ProArgi-9 has good testimonials
good webinars to listen to, a good CD to distribute and a good  site that is very convincing they 
are the way to go. My upline's site (if I do decide to join ProArgi-9)  is at http://www.argi9solutions.com/heartangels/bp.html  It's a page put together very well by another 
distributor for anyone who is a ProArgi-9 distributor as the company site doesn't do a very good job 
of marketing in my opinion.  And this site contains an ordering link that sends the person to her 
company site toorder through even though they still have to manually input the distributor's ID 
number to place the order. But, this page costs her $96/year or $54/mo, ouch!
Do spend some time with the above page. It tells the correct story of L Arginine and no matter who you 
end up buying it from, is an education in itself. Their current campaign is "Lower your blood pressure 
in 90 days or your money back". Great marketing ploy. Anyone who takes either MyCardioForLife or ProArgi-9 using the 2 scoops three times a day regimine and doesn't see a massive reduction in blood pressure in 90 - 120 days is simply not taking the product correctly.  Pretty safe gambit on their part. 
More than a little bit of sensationalism goes with the ProArgi-9 company, but the end result is getting 
you to make money off of recruiting others into the program. 

My ProArgi-9 prospective upline sponsor's  ProArgi-9 marketing page which is free from the company when you join as a distributor is at
http://www.synergyworldwide.com   You don't really have your own 
page like her $96/year page at 
http://www.argi9solutions.com/heartangels/bp.html.  And the customer 
has to input your distributor number to join or place an order. And there are different prices whether you order as  a distributor on autoship (cheapest of course), a distributor not on autoship or as a preferred customer.
This is the part I don't like about any MLM, disparity in favor of the big guns.  In MyCardioForLife it is 
a level playing field with no hype, just results, and a chance for everyone to succeed at no cost.  If you choose to join ProArgi-9, you should plan on committing to the $96/year webpage designed by the ProArgi-9 member mentioned above. 

In MyCardioForLife, pricing is the same for everyone and simply gets less expensive with larger 
quantity purchases. A 6 cannister purchase brings the price down to $37.50/canister, and a 12 
canister purchase brings the price down to $29.98/cannister with free shipping.  Dr. Elwardt is 
after saving people, not milking your wallet, as is evidenced by the quantity of extra heart saving 
ingredients in the MyCardioForLife formula, some of which are expensive components  that you 
don't find in any of the competitors, including ProArgi-9. 
  Take another look at 
http://mycardioforlife.com/ivorycandle/heartdisease_label.html#comp1  , the comparison page,
to see what I mean. Multiply those figures by 6 (6 total scoops a day on the 2 scoops three times 
a day regimine) and you will see significant hits of these components you receive besides the 
L- Arginine and L- Citrulline.

Ships International
As a food supplement MyCardioForLife  is available to ship in the US, Canada, Puerto Rico as well as Internationally. I can even get it shipped to Mexico using USPS and Mexico Coreo.  Buying 12 cannisters gets you free shipping also! AND, you can join as an affiliate marketer, for free, and make money getting others on the product, four levels deep, without having to pay for a distributor sign up or be on any autoship!  Don't forget to read my whole page here as there is a lot of information you need to know about protecting yourself from the #1 killer  today, heart disease.

Some History on Dr Elwardt
I ran across a Dr Harry Elwardt who was deeply involved in curing people 
of heart disease using L Arginine, the 1998 Nobel Peace Prize discovery that roto rooters the arterial network, and a product called CardioCocktail from a company named ForMor. But at $80/bottle the 
product was too expensive for most people and L Arginine alone without the supportive nutrients 
doesn't do the job in a reasonable time period.  Dr Elwardt supported Formor because at that time 
it was the best available product on the market. He left Formor in April of 2009 year because of 
differences in opinion in the direction Formor was heading. They wanted to focus on the financial opportunity and Dr Elwardt wanted to save people. They changed the payplan as well as introduced 
a product he could not support so he was led to a  company called Good Life International that let 
him formulate his own Cardio Health drink that  included ALL of the essential nutritional elements, 
at half the cost.
  GoodLife International saw Dr. Elwardt's  vision. They specialize in liquid nutritional products anyway. The downside of that product is that it tasted horrible. I even had a hard time getting it down. That brought Dr Elwardt to formulate the current powder which actually has a peasant taste to it,
with My CardioForLife, and keep the cost down by not going MLM with it, but just using a simple affiliate program.  Good Life also makes an excellent weight loss supplement called Mega Capsitrim which contains no caffeine.

Which is cheaper?  
A $90,000 heart attack or taking 5grams of L-Arginine and a few other supplements a day?
Spend some time with this page, there is a lot more to this than just watching a video and taking L Arginine.
I share with you on this page ALL the components recommended by ALL the books I have read  to clean your arterial network and remove heart disease and heart attacks absolutely and positively as a risk from your life as well as correcting impotence problems as a side benefit. It's working for me.  I have not taken any blood pressure pills for almost a year now.  It was not unusual without my prescription medications 
to post 210/110 and up - scary. And yes, they had side effects, like limp dick.   There are more 
than a few of you reading this that have a hypertension problem whether you are aware of it or not.  
This is not an issue you can play ostrich with as most of us have. Heart disease is the #1 killer of people today. Every 20 seconds now (was 29 seconds last year) someone in the US has a heart attack, 50% of those people die from that attack..  One out of two of you reading this will die of heart disease. More people visit their doctors for hypertension than for any other reason. But now you can beat it!  Read and follow.

A bi-product benefit of L Arginine is that it aids erectile dysfunction . See the page at Natural Help
A page written on the science behind the erection and how two inexpensive naturally occurring substances 
can replace expensive non natural viagra in the battle to maintain attention until YOU decide it's enough. 
Puts YOU in control. L Arginine is one of those components, Horny Goat weed - Epimedium grandiflorum 
is the other component which you can buy inexpensively at Wonderlabs http://www.wonderlabs.com/?affiliate_pro_tracking_id=67:1:MX

Steps to a healthy heart   28 things you can do to lower your blood pressure

8 Foods to eat to lower high blood pressure

Blood pressure exercises.
Completely avoid the side effects of blood pressure medications - such as drowsiness, heartburn, 
insomnia and depression, just to name a few - by using easy hypertension exercises instead
of drugs.  Blood pressure medications do not cure hypertension, they merely force your blood pressure 
down. They don't even prevent conditions affected by high blood pressure - such as heart attack, stroke, 
impotence and kidney failure.  To avoid these conditions, you must deal with the underlying cause of 
hypertension.   To learn more on how to use special simple exercises to lower pressure,  email me and 
put 3 heart exercises in the subject header and I will send them to you.
These exercises cause no side effects, usually work within a week, help more than 88% of the people 
who use them, take only a few minutes a day, are easy enough anybody can use them, and deliver 
permanent results. Your blood pressure will go down and stay down. This is by far the simplest, easiest, 
and most effective method to permanently normalize your blood pressure without suffering the side effects of prescription medications. Basically these are breathing exercises that will have a similar effect as the  Resperate device. I don't actually use these exercises. Me and the doggies hike up a very steep mountain trail each day and walk back down a steep cobblestone road which accomplishes the same thing. Deep breathing does work no matter which method you use.

Go to  here  for a downloadable report which lists many natural methods of reducing high blood pressure.
Resperate - another tool in the arsenal to battle hypertension. This does NOT take the place of removing arterial  plaque but WILL buy you another 10 to 15 points lower pressure. http://www.resperate.com

Go to   here    for a great ebook on natural herbs and vitamins necessary to  lower your blood pressure.

Here are three other short YouTube videos from Dr Louis Ignarro explaining the problem and the cure.


There are several pdf documents at the www.myheartcure.com   page as well to 
enlighten you about the contents of the cure.  

You can also do a google search for L - Arginine and find many 
sources of it, just not with the complete compliment of synergistic nutrients in the same 
drink as MyCardioForLife  has to go with it. You cannot buy what MyCardioForLife has in it
for the price you can buy MyCardioForLife for.   You would spend over $400/mo
to buy all of those things in that quantity separately.

Do Any Of These Describe You or Someone You Know?
Family History of Heart Disease?
High Blood Pressure?
High LDL Cholesterol?
suffered a heart attack?
High risk for cancer?
If so, you or they should get on L-Arginine!  Taking an L-arginine supplement will reverse a nitric oxide deficiency and you'll be astonished by the difference in the way you feel and how your cardiovascular system is cleansed. 

DPA Test
The cleansing is measurable via a quick, inevasive, and  inexpensive DPA test
You put your finger into the cuff and in two - three minutes you are done; except for the 30 minute lecture that follows to explain to you what all the readings mean.  No blood drawn, no discomfort, cheap. 
But it tells a story you might not be ready to hear. 

You want to get the DPA test so you can track your progress. At the top right of the page at  www.myheartcure.com  is a DPA link that will tell you all about this inexpensive test. 
The test costs $30 -$50 or less.  Look at the list of qualified testors for each state at www.myheartcure.com  at the DPA link or Call 630-961-5145 to find out the closest test 
source near you. 

The DPA provides information on arterial wall stiffness and determines the biological age of arteries in less than 3 minutes. This FDA cleared, user-friendly, non-invasive device uses a finger probe to observe the changes in pressure, blood flow, velocity and profile throughout the whole pulse wave.
FDA Cleared
Non-Invasive · No Blood · No Pain
Takes a snapshot of your arterial elasticity
  1. Heart rate
  2. Artery flexibility
  3. Left Ventricle Ejection Level
  4. Hydration levels
  5. Peripheral Circulatory Disturbance
  6. Overall cardiovascular health
This is what one of the print outs of the DPA test looks like.
The DPA irradiates IR (infrared) to the fingertip and obtains pulse wave information with the light absorbing characteristics of HbO2 of arterial blood. The medical terminology for this measurement method is Plethysmogram (PTG). 

Your biological arterial age is determined by this simple inexpensive DPA machine test. Are you 30 with an arterial system of 70; or are you 70 with a biological arterial system of 30 or younger?  Now you CAN be!
Even If You Have Clogged Arteries...  it is reversible  To learn more about this DPA test  go to www.myheartcure.com and click on the DPA link at the top right of the page. Training is available if you want to get in on the testing business. The test is not complicated. The DPA provides information on arterial wall stiffness and determines the biological age of arteries in less than 3 minutes. This FDA cleared, user-friendly, non-invasive device uses a finger probe to observe the changes in pressure, blood flow, velocity and profile throughout the whole pulse wave.
It tests for:

This test is important because you want to know if you are improving or not if you start taking an 
L Arginine supplement, and this test will tell you. 
My first contact was  a cardiologist who bought one of these DPA machines three years ago and promptly tested 
out as an F. Shocked wasn't the word for it. The scale is A to G with G being a highly likely candidate for a heart attack extremely soon. She took 5 grams of L Arginine   three times a day for the first few weeks and then one ounce per day for the next three years. She currently tests out as a B she tells me. That's like having the arteries of a young teenager. 
The test costs $30 - $50 or less.  Call 630-961-5145 to find out the closest test source near you. 

Other info on L Arginine
L Arginine has been shown to:
Regulate your blood pressure
Keep arteries and veins free of plaque
Prevent blood clots that trigger strokes and heart attacks
Protect you against the accumulation of vascular plaque
Reverse plugged arteries and heart disease
Restore arteries and blood vessels back to normal
Lower Cholestrol and Triglycerides
Increase blood flow in diabetics
Increase blood flow to the genitals     
Normalize sexual functioning - can reverse impotence/sexual dysfunction  
if it was caused by lack of blood flow
A powerful antioxidant...neutralizes "free radicals"

The amino acid
L-Arginine is considered the most potent Nutraceutical ever discovered, due to its powerful healing properties, and is referred to by scientists as the Miracle Molecule. The remarkable properties of L-Arginine were validated by the 1998 Nobel Prize in Medicine, and since then have created a frenzy of interest in the Pharmaceutical and Nutraceutical fields.

Medical researchers have gathered enough clinical evidence to bring L-Arginine to the forefront of modern medicine as an accepted treatment for a variety of human ailments. The L-Arginine phenomen is changing standard treatment methodologies in heart disease, immune function, adiposity-generated diseases, genetic growth deficiencies, high blood pressure, sexual disfunction, and human aging.

Columbia University refers to L-Arginine as the "magic bullet" for the cardiovascular system.
Over 10,000 L-arginine citations were complied by Columbia University researchers in their quest to document the clinical benefits of this simple amino acid. It is now taught to medical students at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.

The Nobel Prize landmark discovery of the functions of Nitric Oxide (NO) elucidated the fact that without NO, human life would be impossible. Even more revolutionary was the irrefutable evidence that L-arginine is the body's chief source for creating Nitric Oxide.

Twenty years ago, the idea that a simple and humble amino acid could change the face of medicine would have been dismissed. Now, physicians, researchers, and scientists are embracing the effectiveness of L-arginine and its use has become mainstream.  In fact since the addition of this page to the Forbidden Knowledge website, people from all over the world find us in their quest for knowledge, and has become the third most viewed page on the site.

 The amino acid L-Arginine produces nitric oxide in the bloodstream that may help a multitude of cardiovascular parameters:

Widen the blood vessels (increasing blood flow throughout the entire body)

Soften the blood vessels (reversing the hardening of the arteries)

Relax the blood vessels (help to overcome high blood pressure)

Inhibit and melt away plaque (help to prevent and revers atheroslerosis, coronary artery disease, heart attack, stroke, impotence, peripheral artery disease)

Please study for yourself the facts and benefits of L-Arginine use.  Other supplements can also be good for the cardiovascular system such as Vitamin C, CoQ10, EDTA, nattokinase, policosanol, arjuna, D-ribose, beta carotene, Vitamin E, polyphenols, tumeric, DEHA, magnesium, garlic, essential fatty acids omega 3 & 6, ginkgo biloba, lutein, selenium, L-taurine, L-lysine, L-proline, L-carnitine, L-citrulline, OPC's like pine bark and grape seed extracts, B complex vitamins B1 - B3 - B12 and folic acid.

 Research shows that L-arginine should probably be taken separately from most other supplementation for best results, as certain supplements will interfere with the absorption of L-arginine, however, L-Citrulline has been shown to boost nitric oxide production when used in conjunction with L-arginine and research shows the levels should be from 200-1000mg per 5000mg of L-arginine. L-arginine is best taken on an empty stomach and not eating for an hour of two after taking;  if you must eat, avoid proteins in this time period.  If you get an upset stomach or diarrhea (these are very rare) when taking L-arginine, you may take some carbohydrates to help prevent this.  Do not take less than 5 grams in a dose (5,000mg) as it may not give you the results you seek.  For most people, the most likely time to take it would be right before bed or upon first awakening.  If you are going to take double or triple doses you will have to do some advance planning to spread it into individual 5 gram doses throughout the day.  Although taking 10 or 15 grams at one time will not likely harm you, it won't likely be as effective as separating them into individual 5 gram doses.  Another tip some have found useful is to take a dose in the middle of the night if you generally have your sleep interrupted by a need to urinate.

Do not take L-Arginine if;  you are under 23 years old, diagnosed with cancer, pregnant or lactating women, males with prostate disorders or high PSA values.  There are no well-known drug interactions with L-arginine other than nitrate drugs (i.e. nitroglycerin) or vasculogenic drugs (i.e. Viagra);  these could vasodialate blood vessels too much or drop blood pressure too low, although there have been no reports of this adverse event.

These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA.  Please consult with your doctor about interactions with prescription medications or supplementation you may be taking.  Work with your doctor if you wish to get yourself off prescription drugs.

Ingredients in the MyCardioForLife  Health drink  and how L-arginine works

If purchased separately, you would spend over $400 for the powerful blend of ingredients contained in just one jar of MyCardioForLife.
MyCardioForLife is a powerful blend of over 100 Nutrients including; each scoop contains 
70 Plant-Source Ionic Minerals, 12 Essential Vitamins, Omega 3 Fatty Acids, as well as many other Anti-Oxidants. Each scoop contains 5000 mg of L-Arginine, 200mg of L Citrulline which helps to 
recycle the L Arginine, 100 mg of CoQ10 and 50 mg of Resveratrol the antioxidant equivalent of 57 glasses of red wine!  No other product even comes close to the value and nutritional support of MyCardioForLife 

L-Arginine (5000 mg): A non-essential amino acid that has shown promise in the prevention of atherosclerosis. L arginine is the precursor for endothelium-derived nitric oxide (EDNO). Three scientists were awarded the Nobel Prize In Medicine in 1998 for discovering nitric oxide’s role as a vasodilator. In a healthy endothelium (inner wall of a blood vessel), nitric oxide (NO) will keep vessels pliable and elastic, keep blood flowing smoothly, keep platelets and white blood cells calm and prevent them from sticking to the vessel wall, prevent oxidation, slow plaque growth, suppress atherosclerosis and melt away plaque that already exists.

After L-arginine is consumed in foods and in supplements, it makes its way into the bloodstream and circulates throughout the body. As it enters the endothelial cells that line the smooth muscle walls of blood vessels, an enzymatic reaction occurs that converts L-arginine to nitric oxide. As the levels of L-arginine rise in the body, so does your production of nitric oxide, which in turn can have a dramtic and positive effect on your cardiovascular health.

There are over 69,000 medically published clinical studies attesting to the fact that L-arginine may also help lower blood, lower cholesterol and triglycerides, improve diabetes, improve sexual function, reduce blood clots and strokes, improve heart failure, improve wound healing, improve kidney function, improve memory and cognitive functions, increase human growth hormone (HGH), improve muscle growth and performance, and much more.

L-Citrulline (200 mg): An amino acid which promotes energy, stimulates the immune system, and detoxifies ammonia, which damages living cells. L-citrulline is closely related to L-arginine and is found in many of the same protein-rich foods. In your body, L-citrulline is converted into L-arginine, which in turn increases the production of nitric oxide. This "turbo-charging" effect of the L-citrulline/L-arginine recycling pathway can, in fact, substantially increase nitric oxide production.

8 Specialty Antioxidants:  (powerful free radical fighters to support anti-aging)*
OPC's (25 mg):
Oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) are naturally occurring substances found throughout plant life, however, the two main sources are pine bark extract (Pycnogenol) and grape seed extract. They are unique flavonols that have powerful antioxidant capabilities and excellent bioavailability. Clinical tests suggest that OPCs may be fifty times more potent than vitamin E and twenty times more potent than vitamin C in terms of bioavailable antioxidant activity. In addition to their antioxidant activity, they strengthen and repair connective tissue, including that of the cardiovascular system, as they moderate allergic and inflammatory responses by reducing histamine production. Research has shown that proanthocyanidins (bioflavonoids) function in the body as anti-inflammatories, antihistamines, antiallergenics and are major free radical scavengers. Proanthocyandins possess up to 50 times stronger antioxidant activity than Vitamin E, Beta Carotene or Selenium.*Because they neutralize free radicals, antioxidants are considered nitric oxide’s watchdogs, stabilizing and protecting nitric oxide during its brief existence (nitric oxide only has a life span of a couple of seconds)—even extending its life!

 Resveratrol (50 mg): A powerful antioxidant derived from the skin of grapes. In the eyes of science all alcoholic beverages are created equal, however, some drinks may be more equal than others. Red wine may be one of those beverages offering a dual action of alcohol and antioxidants. The name of the game is Red Wine Polyphenols (RWP) - compounds derived from grape tannins and anthocyanin pigments that belong to the most powerful antioxidants in the world. As we absorb polyphenols, they change the properties of blood lipids making LDL-cholesterol more resistant to the sort of oxidation that can trigger atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease. Each 1 oz shot of Mega Cardio Health is equivalent to 115 glasses of red wine equivalent of Resveratrol. It is an expensive necessary component. 

CoEnzyme Q-10 ( 100 mg/scoop ) - CoEnzyme Q-10 is essential for human life and health and is needed by every cell in the human body. It is involved in generating 95 percent of the energy needs of your body through the production of ATP, the basic energy molecule. Worldwide studies confirm that CoQ10 can enhance and revitalize the heart, the immune system 
and cellular function.*

Vitamin D3 (5000 IU)   Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in very few foods, added to others, and available as a dietary supplement. It is also produced endogenously when ultraviolet rays from sunlight strike the skin and trigger vitamin D synthesis.  Vitamin D obtained from sun exposure, food, and supplements is biologically inert and must undergo two hydroxylations in the body for activation. The first occurs in the liver and converts vitamin D to 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D], also known as calcidiol. The second occurs primarily in the kidney and forms the physiologically active 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D [1,25(OH)2D], also known as calcitriol.  Vitamin D is essential for promoting calcium absorption in the gut and maintaining adequate serum calcium and phosphate concentrations to enable normal mineralization of bone and prevent hypocalcemic tetany. It is also needed for bone growth and bone remodeling by osteoblasts and osteoclasts . Without sufficient vitamin D, bones can become thin, brittle, or misshapen. Vitamin D sufficiency prevents rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. Together with calcium, vitamin D also helps protect older adults from osteoporosis.
Vitamin D has other roles in human health, including modulation of neuromuscular and immune function and reduction of inflammation.

Omega 3 essential fatty acids (500mg)   from Perilla Oil 4:1  
There are good fats and there are bad fats. Artificially produced trans-fatty acids are bad in any amount and saturated fats from animal products should be kept to a minimum.
The best fats or oils rather, since they are liquid at room temperature, are those that contain the essential fatty acids so named because without them we die. Essential fatty acids are polyunsaturated and grouped into two families, the omega-6 EFAs and the omega-3 EFAs.  Seemingly minor differences in their molecular structure make the two EFA families act very differently in the body. While the metabolic products of omega-6 acids promote inflammation, blood clotting, and tumor growth, the omega-3 acids act entirely opposite.  Although we do need both omega-3s and omega-6s it is becoming increasingly clear that an excess of omega-6 fatty acids can have dire consequences.  Many scientists believe that a major reason for the high incidence of heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, premature aging, and some forms of cancer is the profound imbalance between our intake 
of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids.Our ancestors evolved on a diet with a ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 of about 1:1. A massive change in dietary habits over the last few centuries has changed this ratio to something closer to 20:1 and this 
spells trouble.

Ionic Minerals (2000 mg):    are thought by leading natural health experts to be one of the most important "missing links" in the modern food chain. Medical and agricultural research continues to conclusively point to one fact: trace minerals either directly or indirectly hold the keys and solutions to many of the world's health problems. Ionic mineral complexes are the world's finest electrolyte, which improves energy function, increases assimilation, stimulates metabolism, restores electrochemical balance, reduces high blood pressure, enhances nutrients, and helps rebuild the immune system.
Mega Cardio Health contains 70 Plant Source Ionic Minerals ( 2,000mg/oz ) - Your body most efficiently absorbs minerals in plant source ionic form. Elemental minerals in pill form are essentially rocks, and your body was not designed to absorb rocks. Besides, most pill supplements usually contain only 11 or 12 minerals, not the 70 plant-source ionic minerals in Mega Cardio Health Plus.

8 Fortified Minerals - balanced amounts of Zinc, Chromium and Vanadium, small amounts of Calcium and Magnesium (larger amounts might interfere with the absorption of other nutrients), superior antioxidant minerals like Selenium, and absorption-aiding minerals like Copper and Manganese.*

12 Vitamins & Nutrients - large amounts of each element of the B-Vitamin Complex, and Vitamin E, and other specialized nutrients. B Complex  thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine (B6), biotin (B7), folic acid or folate (B9), cobalamin (B12)  B vitamins are essential nutrients for growth, development, and a variety of other bodily functions.  They play a major role in the activities of enzymes, proteins that regulate chemical reactions in the body, which are important  in turning food into energy and other needed substances. B vitamins are found in a variety of plant and animal food sources. Mega Cardio Health per 1 oz serving contains a full 400 mcg of folic acid and 500 mcg of B12.

Ester C (100mg) This is the expensive form of vitamin C. Ester-C, Calcium Ascorbate,  is a unique and patented form of vitamin C. It is made using a proprietary, water-based manufacturing process which results in a pH neutral product that contains naturally occurring vitamin C metabolites. These metabolites activate the vitamin C molecules making it easier for the body to transport them from cell to cell for numerous health benefits. The main benefit of Ester-C is its quick absorption and 24-hour retention in the immune system.

Potassium citrate: Potassium citrate is a polyunsaturated fatty acid salt. It is used to inhibit molds, yeasts, and fungi in many foods, such as cheese, wine, and baked goods. 

After Driving Over 900,000 Miles In My Chevy Van... I Discovered In April Of 2007...My Arteries Were Filling up with Plaque! After Three Months Of Taking The l-Aginine And Oral Chelation...The Plaque is Melting Away! My name is John Schlimmer.  Around the first of April 2007...I was introduced to the Digital Pulse Wave Analyser.  The DPA takes a snapshot of your cardio vascular system by the use of a finger probe. In just two minutes...it printed out a detailed graph...pinpointing a plaque build-up in my large and small arteries.  It also detected early stages of hardening of the arteries...and proceeded to give me a biological age of 70...and I'm only 59! I was completly caught off guard.  I thought I was taking pretty good care of myself...taking nutritional products twice daily...drinking water...getting some exercise...eating my veggies and fruit each day...I felt great. I should have known better, as my father had a heart attack at 40...one Grandpa died at 50...of a heart attack...my other Grandpa died at 67 of a stroke. I Retested With The Digital Pulse Wave Analyser Three Months Later...The First Of July 2007...And The Results Were Remarkable! My large and small arteries tested very low circulation the first of April...just three monthslater the large and small arteries shot out into the normal circulation...and my cardio vascular age went from 70 years down to 58 years...what a remarkable turn of events! Dr. Ignarro is absolutely right...If you introduce l-arginine into your bloodstream...it will reverse heart disease.  The Dr. should know...he won the Nobel Prize in medicine in 1998 along with two other doctors for discovering that l-arginine/Nitric Oxide can prevent heart attacks and strokes and reverse plaque build-up in the arteries.

Dr. Joe Prendergast writes in his book, "The Uncommon Doctor" ... in 1991 I was diagnosed with atheriosclerotic heart disease (plaque build-up in the arteries).  A CAT scan of my stomach had shown a calcification of the arteries. After extensive research and talking to colleagues...I discovered that l-arginine may be a powerful weapon against heart disease! I started taking the l-arginine twice a day.  After taking it for a while...I went back to the same radiologist for another CAT scan. We Were Both Stunned...! The radiologist said to me..."How did you do this?  You have gotten rid of all the build-up in your arteries.  You have reversed your condition.  That's not possible!" My father had suffered a stroke in his forties and died in his early fifties from the same disease I had just reversed in myself. The Results Have Been Miraculous...For My Diabetic Patients.   In 1991, 30% of my diabetic patients would eventually end up having to see a cardiologist  for bypass procedures.  I decided it was time to introduce l-arginine into my practice. In just nine short years...less than 1% of my patients needed to see a cardiologist! Since 1991...my practice has not had one patient suffer from a heart attack or stroke! The results have been nothing short of miraculous!  It gives me great satisfaction to report that we have virtually reversed all heart disease in my diabetic patients. Arginine impacts the entire cardiovascular system.  It causes arteries to relax so that blood flows more freely throughout the body...while melting away plaque build-up in the veins and arteries. L-Arginine (amino acid)...When Taken Orally..Prevents and Reverses Heart Disease!

55 Years Old...4 Plugged Arteries 
My name is Lori and I am 55 years old.  After several test and three doctors...I was told in December 2006 I had 4 blocked arteries.  Three at 50% and one at 70%.  I started taking a liquid arginine in December 2006...three and sometimes four times a day until February 4th, 2007.  On February 5th, 2007...I went in for a heart catherization...to have a stint inserted into the  artery that was 70% blocked. The Doctor Could Not Find Any Blocked Arteries! I was in surgery for 1 1/2 hrs...and when the doctor finished...he told my family he could not  find the blockages they had seen in the previous CAT scan...including all the other tests!   My high blood pressure of 10 years is back to normal...my Cholesterol was 220...now it's 160  I've been on medication for diabetes...my last test was normal.  When I asked the doctor to explain all these changes...he just shook his head.  I believe the  good Lord used the liquid l-arginine to help me in all of these areas.  Lori  Orlando, FL 

The compound that is actually doing the job is  called NO...Nitric Oxide.  In 1998...three doctors won the Nobel Prize in Medicine for discovering NO/Nitric Oxide.  These three doctors...after 24 years of research discovered...If you have Nitric Oxide/l-arginine in your blood stream...you eliminate the possibility of suffering a heart attack or stroke! The doctors discovered that when you introduce the amino acid L-Arginine into the blood stream...it turns into NO or Nitric Oxide. L-Arginine...an amino acid...when taken orally...turns into NO...becoming a vasodilator that helps control blood flow to every part of your body.

No More Heart Disease! Dr. Ignarro...one of three doctors awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1998...
wrote a book titled..."No More Heart Disease." In his book..."No More Heart Disease"...he focuses on how nitric oxide/L-Arginine afcts the entire vascular system...by relaxing and enlarging the blood vessels.
Dr. Ignarro goes on to say...NO/l-arginine influences the functioning of every bodily organ...  including the lungs...liver...kidneys...stomach...genitals and most of all...the heart.   It seems that there is no end to the uses 
of NO/l-arginine in the body! 


Here's what another doctor says about hypertension  (high blood pressure).
Your blood carries life-giving nutrients and oxygen to your organs. To stay healthy and vigorous, you need this system working well.

But high blood pressure can damage the lining of your arteries’ walls and block blood flow. This can lead to atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) that can trigger fatal heart attacks and strokes. And the constant pressure can also cause a section of the arterial wall to enlarge, causing an aneurysm in the aorta or brain.

It’s the same story with the kidneys and eyes.

High blood pressure is the most common cause of kidney failure. And in the eyes, this arterial damage can cause serious vision problems due to fluid buildup or nerve damage.

Unfortunately, mainstream medicine’s solution to this is side-effect laden drugs like beta blockers, ACE inhibitors, calcium-channel blockers, and diuretics.

Some of the unpleasant effects of taking these medications include:

Constant fatigue
Shortness of breath
Chronic dry, hacking cough
Swollen ankles
Kidney damage

One of my patients, R.G., put it this way: “If this is what it feels like to survive a heart attack, I’d rather be dead!” His previous doctor had him on a laundry list of drugs, including blood pressure drugs, to “protect” his heart. The side effects were crippling him.

Fortunately, you don’t need medications to protect your heart or even reduce your blood pressure.

You can do it naturally, with inexpensive foods and supplements.

For starters, you should get your blood pressure measured.

Most grocery stores and pharmacies have a station where you can get it checked for free. Otherwise see your doctor.

Once you know your scores, take a look at the chart below and see where you fall between the normal and high blood pressure (hypertension) range:

Blood Pressure Stage
Systolic (Top Number)
Diastolic (Bottom Number)
Stage One Hypertension
Stage Two Hypertension

Next, you can use any one of these four natural alternatives to reduce or even prevent high blood pressure:

Garlic – This tasty herb contains sulfides that help relax your arteries. This lets blood flow more freely. In fact, a study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that garlic can relax blood vessel tension by an amazing 72 percent.1 For maximum benefit, eat one to two cloves of fresh garlic per day. If you’d rather use a supplement, choose one that gives you at least 3,600 mcg of allicin – garlic’s active compound.

Hawthorn – This herb has been used for centuries as a heart tonic. Just like garlic, it works to relax the blood vessels. It does this by inhibiting enzymes called angiotensin-converting enzymes. (They are what cause your blood vessels to constrict.) Prescription drugs like ACE inhibitors work the same way – with far more dangerous side effects. In one clinical trial, hawthorn effectively reduced diastolic blood pressure.2 I recommend you take 1,000 mg of hawthorn extract daily.

CoQ10 – About 50 percent of patients that come to me on high blood pressure meds have stopped taking them just by supplementing with CoQ10. A study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition confirms what I’ve seen in my own practice. Researchers gave CoQ10 to diabetic patients. Not only did their blood sugar improve, so did their blood pressure.3 This powerful and amazing antioxidant works by supplying your heart with the critical energy it needs to pump blood throughout your body. Without CoQ10, your heart would literally stop beating. I suggest you take 50 to 100 mg of the potent form of CoQ10 known as ubiquinol.

Quercetin – This powerful antioxidant is off most doctors’ radar screens. It’s a “bioflavanoid” that’s found in foods like apples, onions, red grapes, and leafy greens. In one study, researchers gave 22 people with high blood pressure quercetin for four weeks. At the end of the study, they showed significant improvement.4 The easiest way to get more quercetin is to eat more fruits and leafy green veggies. Otherwise, you can get a supplement at your local health-food store. I recommend 300 to 750 mg per day.

My friends at XXXXX Publishing have put together a special report that covers these and many other natural high blood pressure remedies most people – even most doctors – have never even heard of.

It’s called “The High Blood Pressure Remedy Report: How to Cure Your High Blood Pressure Naturally Without Drugs.”
If you'd like a  copy of this report email me and put "blood pressure report" in the subject header.

I’ve never seen a more comprehensive report on how to naturally:

Prevent and reduce high blood pressure
Protect your heart, kidneys, eyes, and brain
Wean yourself off costly and harmful drugs like beta blockers
Reduce your risk of heart attack or stroke

3 tips from the People's Chemist
Mother Nature provides three cardiovascular cures that cost next to nothing. Combined, they can help us overcome a weakening heart and even type II diabetes.

Low-Cost Cardiovascular Cure #1: Psyllium Husk. Psyllium husk is a soluble fiber, meaning it is an indigestible, complex carbohydrate. Once consumed, it undergoes fermentation in the large intestine, yielding a broad range of heart-healthy benefits, most notably the control of appetite, blood sugar and insulin.

A pooled analysis of 10 prospective cohort studies of dietary fiber intake in the US and Europe found that each 10 grams/day increase in total dietary fiber intake was associated with a 14 percent decrease in the risk of coronary events, such as myocardial infarction (MI), and a 24 percent decrease in deaths from coronary heart disease.

Psyllium husk is one of my favorite supplements due to its ability to help control blood glucose. Excess glucose in the blood stream can cause heart disease for its ability to become "oxidized." This oxidation leads to a change in the molecular structure of glucose - causing what is known as advanced glycation end products or AGE-products. Like a knife carving clay, AGE products scar arterial walls. The scarring results in plague buildup and excess blood clotting. This mechanism is why diabetics have a 4.5 times increase of suffering from heart attack and stroke relative to non-diabetics.

Go to your local health food store and purchase psyllium husk. This will cost you no more than a few bucks. In the bulk isle, psyllium can be purchased for about $3 per month.

Low-Cost Cardiovascular Cure #2: B Vitamins. These vitamins are required for proper functioning of the brain, nervous system, and the formation of blood. They are also involved in the metabolism of every cell of the human body, especially for proper DNA synthesis and regulation, but also for fatty acid synthesis and energy production. Harvard researchers writing in the Journal of the American Medical Association stated that women could cut their risk of heart disease by half with daily consumption of B vitamins.

B vitamins are responsible for igniting a chemical cascade within the body known as methylation. This process rids the arteries of the damaging molecule known as homocysteine.  The lower your levels of homocysteine, the less risk you have of suffering from cardiovascular disease.

Start supplementing with B vitamins today. A daily B vitamin supplement should cost no more than $10 per month.

Low-Cost Cardiovascular Cure #3: Flavonoids. These are plant derived pigments. Over 4,000 have been studied for their cardiovascular and anti-cancer benefits. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reported a 20 percent decrease in heart disease mortality risk among those who consumed at least 7.5 mg daily.

Flavonoids preserve the cardiovascular system and heart by three major actions: improving blood flow in order to enhance oxygen and nutrient delivery throughout the 100,000 miles of adult veins, arteries and capillaries, preventing the formation of artery-scarring, oxidized LDL, and relaxing the coronary arteries to prevent high blood pressure.

Make sure your shopping cart is loaded with food that are packed with flavonoids. The best sources of flavonoids are broccoli, hawthorn, grapeseed extract, black tea, citrus fruits, and organic dark chocolate.

  • Steps to a healthy heart
    A healthy heart is essential for every human being. The heart is the center of the human’s anatomy, and it has significant functions. Primarily, the heart pumps blood towards the different areas of the body providing life. On average, the heart pumps 72 beats per minute, or an average range between 60 to 90 beats per minute. If the heart pumps more than the normal range, problems will arise systemically. If the heart pumps slowly, on the other hand, it is also dangerous. It is therefore crucial for every human being to maintain a healthy heart.

    A healthy heart means the absence of diseases that can result to its loss of functions. There are several types of heart diseases; the most common of which is when plaques clog up the arteries.  Arteries are important structures that bring blood towards the heart muscles itself. When an artery is clogged up by fatty plaques, the heart loses its ability to pump enough blood towards the different organs and tissues of the body. Eventually, it will deprive the heart of its much-need nutrients and oxygen which could result to permanent damage of the heart and later, death. Below are guidelines on how to have a healthy heart. By following these religiously, one can be assured of a healthy life.

    1. Get on Dr Elwardt's  mycardioforlife formula.  
    A powder that tastes good. Peach, orange and grape flavors.
    This is a must. This formula lowers blood pressure and strengthens your heart. See the ingredients 
    list near the top of this page. Note that 100mg of CQ10 is included besides the 5000mg of 
    L Arginine and 200mg of L-Citruline per scoop, and check out the AstraGin component.

    2. Add Fiber to your Diet
    According to the spokesman for the American Heart Association, Dr. Alice H. Lichtenstein, the foods that are high in dietary fiber has shown in various studies that it can lower the risk of getting heart diseases. Fiber-rich foods, such as fibers, plants and grains, help by lowering the LDL cholesterol, blood sugar levels and blood pressure. This happens because fibers bind with the cholesterol in the intestines and impedes the absorption of cholesterol into the body. Another reason why fiber provides a healthy heart is because of its low calorie content, which lowers the risk of getting diabetes and heart diseases.

    3. Cook with Garlic  or take garlic capsules
    There are many reasons why garlic is implicated with having a healthy heart. Several studies have been made that has proven the significance of garlic in preventing heart problems. In a study published in ACS’ Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, garlic oil has reduced the chances of developing cardiomyopathy among patients with diabetes. The antioxidant properties of garlic oil are linked to this result. Freshly crushed garlic has also cardio protective effects, which is due to the hydrogen sulfide that helps in the relaxation of the blood vessels.

    4. Drink coconut milk and use coconut oil for cooking besides olive oil 

    5. Consume 3 kiwi fruits a day.
    An apple a day won’t necessarily keep the doctor away, but three kiwis just might help, at least according 
    to a small study that showed that the brown, fuzzy fruit may lower blood pressure levels.
    Men and women 
    with mildly high blood pressure who ate three kiwi fruits a day for eight weeks had systolic blood pressure 
    levels that were 3.6 millimeters of mercury lower than those of volunteers who ate an apple a day. Systolic 
    blood pressure is the upper number in a blood pressure measurement.
      Kiwis may be small, but they pack 
    a lot of nutrition in their green flesh. They are rich in lutein, a potent antioxidant, and this may be what is 
    responsible for their blood pressure-lowering powers, said researchers who were led by Mette Svendsen 
    of Oslo University Hospital in Norway. The study was to be presented Tuesday at the American Heart 
    annual meeting in Orlando, Fla.

    6. Eat a cup of blueberries once a week
    According to a study created by University of East Anglia (UEA) and Harvard University, reaching
    more than 180,000 people over a period of 14 years, eating blueberries ONCE a week, lowers the risk of
    developing hypertension by whopping 10%. The health benefits of all berries, including blueberries, have been known for a long time. What's surprising, however, is how little it takes (only eating a handful of raw berries
    once a week) to make a huge difference with your health.  Blueberries have also been proven to lower
    cholesterol and improve both arthritis and diabetes.

    7. Drink beet juice
    Drinking only 250 ml of beet juice drops high blood pressure 10 points (mmHg)
    on the average -   ...WITHIN THREE HOURS!
    This is a results of a study made by  Dr. Amrita Ahluwalia,  Professor of Vascular Biology at
    Queen Mary's William Harvey Research Institute in London, which was published in the
    American Heart Association journal Hypertension.
    Beet juice has also been shown to lower bad cholesterol (LDL) and increase good cholesterol (HDL)
    if used on daily basis.

    8. Eat oatmeal for breakfast
    An experiment was performed where people were  separated into four groups based on how many
    bowls of whole grain cereal they ate per week. Eating oatmeal once a week lowed the risk of hypertension 
    8% but eating cereal morethan seven times per week lowered the risk 25%.

    9. Take 2000mg of EDTA/day  ethylinediaminetetraacetic acid, as an oral chelation agent.
    Can be found most inexpensively at wonderlabs.

    10. Consider  Super Life Glow capsules from Vibrant Life 
    Another oral chelation product .
      Super Life Glow is the best vitamin and oral chelation formula in 
      It contains massive quantities of nutrients, more than 60 of them! Super Life Glow is 
    made up of the same ingredients as Life Glow Plus, but we have increased the quantities of some 
    ingredients and also added several additional nutrients that are particularly expensive. Available in powder 
    form also and they also carry the best bone formula on the planet in  their Bone Dense Calcium which 
    contains microcrystalline hydroxyapatite, the only form of calcium proven to add bone mass. People's 
    bent backs are straightening from using this formula.

    11. Eat foods high in potassium citrate 
    (taking potassium citrate in capsule form helps also - anything to boost your potassium level balancing 
    your body's sodium/potassium pump) Several studies throughout the years have proven that food high
    in potassium citrate drastically lowers blood pressure.  A study from St. George's Medical School in 
    London, published in the journal Hypertension took group of people averaging hypertension of 151/93. 
    After two weeks on potassium citrate, their blood pressure had dropped down to 138/88 on the average.
    Foods high in potassium citrate include:
    fish (especially salmon, flounder, and tuna), dried apricots,
    citrus fruit, bananas, melons, legumes, green leafy vegetables,
    tomatoes, poultry, potatoes, yogurt and whole-grain cereals.

    14. Consider buying the resperate device at www.resperate.com  This requires 15 minutes per 
    session, three sessions per week  and deals with controlling your breathing which relaxes the arterial 
    walls and increases blood flow and lowers pressure. Results are obtained in as little as 3-4 weeks time. 
    All you have to do is synchronize your breathing to the inhale and exhale tones created by the device.
    A sensor measures your breathing rate. Trick device and it works.

    15. Blood pressure exercises.
    Completely avoid the side effects of blood pressure medications - such as drowsiness, heartburn, 
    insomnia and depression, just to name a few - by using easy hypertension exercises instead
    of drugs.  Blood pressure medications do not cure hypertension, they merely force your blood pressure 
    down. They don't even prevent conditions affected by high blood pressure - such as heart attack, stroke, 
    impotence and kidney failure.  To avoid these conditions, you must deal with the underlying cause of 
    hypertension.   To learn more on how to use special simple exercises to lower pressure,  go to  here
    These exercises cause no side effects, usually work within a week, help more than 88% of the people 
    who use them, take only a few minutes a day, are easy enough anybody can use them, and deliver 
    permanent results. Your blood pressure will go down and stay down. This is by far the simplest, easiest, 
    and most effective method to permanently normalize your blood pressure without suffering the side effects 
    of prescription medications.

    16. Consider the cardiofx formula from www.thepeopleschemist.com 
    Based on Nobel-Prize winning science, Cardio-FX utilizes a compounded formula of grape seed extract, 
    hawthorn, garlic and magnesium citrate to control blood pressure, reduce blood clots and strengthen the 
    heart all in one pill. Validated by the 1998 Nobel Prize in Medicine, this is considered the Holy Grail for 
    cardiovascular health

    17. Eat fish several times a week
    In Japan, their seafood diet has shown evidences of a reduced number of heart problems. 
    According to the  information published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, the protection given to the heart  is due to the omega-3 fatty acids which is abundant is several oily fish. Evidences also show that those with  high levels of omega-3 fatty acids have lower risks of developing atherosclerosis.

    18. Include Veggies
    People with a diet that is rich in vegetables, together with fruits, have shown to have lower risks of getting 
    ischemic heart ailments. In the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition studies, it shows  that those who eat not less than eight portions of fruits and vegetables has 22 percent lowered risk of getting complications, such as death, due to ischemic heart disease, compared to those who have lesser intake of  vegetables and fruits.

    19. Eat Bananas
    Chances of getting heart palpitations are reduced when a person is regularly eating bananas and other 
    potassium-rich foods. Bananas are rich in potassium, and potassium is an important ion in controlling 
    the rhythm of the heart.

    20. Dark Chocolate for Dessert
    Published in the Journal of Nutrition is a study conducted in Italy that has shown that 6.7 grams of chocolate  per day reduces inflammation and the risk of cardiovascular diseases. If inflammation is reduced, chronic  inflammation caused by excessive injury to the heart is lessened. This is evidenced when the amount of  C-reactive protein in the blood is reduced when people are eating at least a small square of dark chocolate  two to three times per week.

    21. Drink Green TeaThe benefits of drinking green tea can be seen on its effects in the lining of the blood  vessels which is significant in preventing heart diseases. The study on the effects of green tea was published  in the European Journal of Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation. It showed that those who drank  green tea have improved the functions of their blood vessels after 30 minutes of ingestion. Microscopically,  green tea has improved the integrity of the endothelial cells lining the walls of the blood vessels.

    22. Snack on Nuts, especially walnuts 13 walnut halves a day
    Almost all nuts known to man have shown cardio protective effects. But compared to other nuts, 
    walnuts top the most packed amounts of antioxidants that promote a health heart. If walnuts are not 
    accessible, other nuts are also packed with antioxidants. They are almonds, pecans, hazelnuts, pistachios, 
    macadamias, cashews and Brazil nuts. Eating raw or unroasted nuts provide greater benefits than those 
    which are roasted.

    23. Walk Everyday; riding a bicycle works also
    Those who walk often and in longer distances have more chances of getting a healthy heart. 
    Walking is a form of higher-caloric exercise. Studies published in the Circulation: Journal of American 
    Heart Association
    showed that walking reduces weight by up to two times and decreases greater fat mass.

    24. Sipping Hibiscus Tea. Researchers from Tufts University found that study participants who sipped 3 cups of a hibiscus tea daily lowered systolic blood pressure by 7 points in 6 weeks on average. Those who received a placebo drink improved their reading by only 1 point.  They believe that the phytochemicals in hibiscus are probably responsible for the large reduction in high blood pressure. Many herbal teas contain hibiscus; look for blends that list it near the top of the chart of ingredients—this often indicates a higher concentration per serving.

    25. Listening to Mozart. You might have read on many news outlets that listening to Mozart has a blood pressure lowering effect. Research did show that it does lower blood pressure if listen for 15 minutes or so. The reductions however were not larger than other kind of relaxing music.  In fact, relaxing music CD were used as a control treatment in RESPeRATE clinical trials. 15 minutes of RESPeRATE delivered significantly better blood pressure reductions. Nevertheless, listening to soothing music is certainly beneficial.

    26. Meditate Daily
    A study was made on patients with coronary heart diseases. When they tried the regimen of Transcendental  Meditation technique, their risk of getting heart attack, stroke and death was lowered 
    by 50 percent.  Transcendental Meditation is a stress relieving technique. The study showed also that 
    those who engaged  in such activity have lowered their blood pressure with an average of 5 mmHg.

    27. Laugh Heartily
    Laughter is the best medicine, and this is also true for the heart. The study made in the University of 
    Maryland Medical Center showed that those who have heart diseases are 40 percent unlikely to laugh than 
    those who do not have any forms of heart disease. Those who have heart disease are less likely to have 
    significant recognition of what is humour, and they usually display anger and hostility. It is therefore suggested  by the researchers to incorporate laughter in daily activities by reading or watching humorous stories.

    28. Get a Glass of Red Wine
    Red wine has shown to have cardio protective benefits. This is evidenced in the French society, where red wine is regularly taken, and they have lower evidence of heart problems. According to the studies, it is the polyphenols in the red wine that contributed to the heart-healthy effects. Polyphenols are antioxidants and are largely found in fruits, such as berries, chocolates and green tea. Since polyphenols prevent the build-up of plaque in the blood vessels, it prevents diseases related to the cardiovascular system.

    8 Foods to eat to lower high blood pressure
    Most people nowadays are getting concerned about their blood pressure. Blood pressure is considered as one of the principal vital signs, next to temperature, heart rate and respiratory rate. When blood that is circulating in the body exerts pressure upon the wall of the veins, this is called blood pressure. There are two measurements for blood pressure, one is the maximum pressure, called the systolic pressure, the other is the minimum pressure, or the diastolic pressure.

    According to the standards set by the American Heart Association, the desirable blood pressure is 90 to 119 mmHg for systole and 60 to 79 for diastole. Anything higher than that may be considered as pre-hypertension or hypertension. While it is important to have low blood pressure, it is not good to have lower than the desirable range. Why is it necessary to have desirable blood pressure? Having hypertension can lead to several diseases. Since blood pressure is a vital sign, increased blood pressure is not a disease but merely a symptom of a disease. Some of the diseases associated with increased blood pressure are those related to the cardiovascular system, the cerebrovascular systems, renal problems and others. So that these diseases will not be developed, here are eight suggested foods that can help lower the blood pressure to a normal level. Those with hypertension are encouraged to consider these foods in their diet.

    1. Celery

      Most kitchens always have carrots, potatoes, onions and celery. But before celery found its way to the kitchens, it used to be considered as medicine in the ancient times. As a medicine, it has several benefits. First, celery as a vegetable, from stalks to leaves, is rich in vitamins K, A, C and the B vitamins. It is also a good source for folate, potassium, finer and calcium. There are several studies conducted to determine the health benefits of celery. One of those studies has to do on its effect with blood pressure, as what the Chinese has long been recognized. It showed that celery contains phthalides, an active compound that can help in the relaxation of the arterial muscles. If arterial muscles are relaxed, there is dilation, and blood can easily flow into it. In the animal studies conducted, 12 to 14 percent of the animals blood pressure was reduced after it were injected with phthalides from celery. Celery may be high in sodium content, but taking celery in moderation helps lower blood pressure.

    2. Wild Salmon

      It is omega-3 fatty acids that made wild salmon popular. But salmon also has several health benefits. Aside from protecting the joint, protecting the eyes, decreasing the risk of developing cancer and improving the person’s mood and cognition, wild salmon is greatly beneficial to the cardiovascular system. In a research conducted at the University of Iceland in Reykjavik, it showed that those who are eating omega-3 fatty acid rich foods, such s salmon, cod and the fish oil capsules, have reduced their systolic blood pressure, and greatly reduced their diastolic blood pressure.

    3. Broccoli

      Broccoli is highly rich in vitamin C and K. A cup of broccoli can already provide more than 100 percent of the required daily allowance of a normal person. Broccoli’s benefits to the blood pressure have to do with sulphoraphane, a substance that has anti-inflammatory effects. For those having problems with blood sugar, sulphoraphane helps the blood vessels from being eroded due to increasing blood sugar. Without the inflammatory symptoms in the blood vessels, it can dilate and constrict properly, lowering the chances of developing hypertension. Broccoli also controls the cholesterol level of the body. By lowering the cholesterol, there is lesser accumulation of low-density lipoproteins in the blood vessels that causes the blood vessel to constrict causing increased blood pressure.

    4. Dandelion

      The flower called dandelion is actually being used nowadays as an ingredient of vegetable salad. This plant is rich in vitamins A, B, C and D, as well as minerals potassium, iron and zinc. There are two ways dandelion can lower the blood pressure. First is with its diuretic action. Those with essential hypertension are given initially with diuretic drugs to lower their blood pressure. Other drugs are introduced when blood pressure has already reached higher levels. With dandelion having diuretic action, normalized blood pressure is expected.

    5. Berries

      There are just several types of berries available in the garden, but there are specific berries that can help lower the blood pressure. One of these is the blueberries. A recent research conducted by Harvard University and University of East Anglia showed that the anthocyanin in blueberries, found largely in its skin, can protect from developing hypertension. The research that covers 14 years with 47,000 male participants and 134,999 female participants showed that consumption of different flavonoids has lowered the risk of developing hypertension. All berries, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries have anthocyanin, but the richest among them is blueberries.

    6. Apricots

      Apricots are known to be beneficial for the eyes because of its rich vitamin A content. But apricots have other health benefits too. Apricots are rich in fiber and potassium, some of the important substances that control the contraction and dilation of the arterial blood vessels.

    7. Black Beans

      Black beans are a type of legume that is rich in molybdenum, folate, dietary fiber and tryptophan. There is several health benefits brought about by black beans. One of which is its benefit on the cardiovascular system. The soluble fiber content of black beans helps lower the blood cholesterol level of the body. With lowered blood cholesterol, there is decreased accumulation of low-density lipoproteins in the blood vessel lining, thereby lowering the chance of getting blood vessel erosion which eventually leads to increased high blood pressure. Aside from that, it also contains some of the anti-inflammatory flavonoids, which lowers the tendency of the blood vessels to be exposed to oxidative stress, as well as inflammation, which are the reasons for getting high blood pressure.

    8. Dark Chocolate

      People who are suffering from hypertension has reason to rejoice after researchers at the University of Adelaide have found out that eating dark chocolate can actually lower their blood pressure. The reason for this is the flavonols that can help in the elevation of the nitric oxide in the endothelium. With increasing nitric oxide, there is promotion of vasodilation which can lead to lowering of blood pressure. The studies for those with normal blood pressure have conflicting results though. But for those with hypertension, it is time now to grab a bar of your favorite dark chocolate treat.

      9.  Beets and beet juice
      More high blood pressure patients are using natural remedies to control high blood pressure. This behavior is not surprising.
        One natural way of controlling high blood pressure is by consuming beets.

      How Beet helps in controlling high blood pressure

      A study published in a medical journal last year reported that high blood pressure patients can reduce their blood pressure by 10% by consuming 2 cups of beet juice every day.

      Amrita Ahluwalia, who was the leading author of the study, advocates that beetroot juice and other nitrate-rich vegetables help immensely in maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system.

      Benefits of beet are aplenty. Some of the more pronounced ones are:
      Beets reduce total cholesterol levels – Regular consumption of beet juice can help reduce your total cholesterol by 30%, and triglycerides by 40%.
      Beets increase good cholesterol levels – Beets also increase the good cholesterol or HDL levels.

      In addition to the above, beets also reduce the risk of blood clots, dissolve inorganic calcium deposits that clog arteries, and improve digestion.

      So invest some money on a good juicer and take your first step toward a healthy heart.

      Precautions while consuming beet

      Do not- and we repeat- do not mix beet juice with broccoli or other vegetables that have high calcium content. 
      Beet is rich in oxalic acid, and oxalic acid and calcium can cause digestive problems if taken together.

      Also, as beet is rich in oxalic acid, high blood pressure patients who have kidney stones, osteoporosis, and gout should avoid consuming it.
