With so many different factors, it is not impossible that we get to have a heart problem. Risk factors to heart problems are: First, PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS that includes the person’s age, sex and family history. These are factors that we do not have any control over but knowledge can always give us an opportunity to be one step ahead. Second, is the LEARNED BEHAVIOR namely smoking, obesity, stress, sedentary lifestyle and food habits which are those that we can avoid so we can reduce our risk in having the killer heart disease. Third, is the disease/s you have that led you to have heart disease like hypertension, diabetes, and hyperlipedimia/hypercholesterolemia.

Studies and researches are continuously being done to help us combat heart disease, hypertension and stroke. One of which is the study on Nitric Oxide. Deficiency on l arginine have significant findings to leading to the killer disease. And so provision of l arginine and L-citrulline in the diet, which are both used to make Nitric Oxide, is important. (Nitric Oxide is a compound in the body that relaxes blood vessels.)

l arginine can be found in food, but intake cannot reach the desired amount for the day if you would just rely on diet. Supplements are now in the market for a better source. L-arginine Plus do not only provide the two compounds but also contains other supporting nutrients likeVitamin C,Vitamin D, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Folate (Folic Acid), Magnesium, 72 Trace Minerals and even wine extracts that are all said to be needed to make our hearts healthier.

@arvin ~thanks
@ hans ~ glad you like it. i have not encountered about measuring L-arginine. will try and look it up. but basing on information gathered, i believe it is not usually found in the body therefore cannot be measured for any dificiency. it is in supplements, more like a medicine that could help ;) will get back to you if ever i find something more beyond what i know =) thanks for time dear, appreciate it.
