revent or reverse heart disease with EPXbody Cardio heart health supplement

I am sharing an extract from an article by Dr. Carol because I feel the content will be of great benefit to many of my health-conscious readers. For people who are not in the medical profession or have read up on how to naturally improve cardiovascular health, the subject can be a complex one for people to get their head around. Dr.Carol’s article does a great job in explaining things simply. So let’s begin….

Dr Carol on EPX CardioHeart Disease is the number one killer of Americans – even more than cancer.

The statistics are really scary. 81 million American adults have cardiovascular disease. Every year, nearly one million people with CVD have their first heart attack and often, the first symptom of the disease is death. 325,000 people will die having that first heart attack.

Now, 100 years ago, heart disease was rare. Of course, throughout the ages, people have always died of disease. But the diseases that did us in, like the great plague that killed off 1.5 million people, are called Vector Diseases. They are caused by bacteria and viruses, and to some extent, have been impacted by modern medicine.

CVD, on the other hand, is not a vector disease. It is a lifestyle disease. Today, it’s degenerative diseases that are killing us. Poor eating habits, stress, lack of sleep, high blood sugar levels, blood pressure problems and pollution all have negative effects on heart health.

So we go to our physicians and they do indeed tell us to eat better and to watch our cholesterol levels. However, heart disease is not just about cholesterol. There are many more risk factors that contribute to CVD. Some of these risk factors are genetic, but more often than not, they revolve around lifestyle. A surprising statistic is that at least fifty percent of heart attack victims have normal cholesterol levels. Research has thrown into question the validity that elevated cholesterol is the primary driver of heart disease.

Here’s the bottom line: Cholesterol is a marker for CVD. It is not the cause. Newer scientific research has shown that the real cause of heart disease is inflammation. The foods we eat, aging in general, stress, and pollution cause an inflammatory reaction on a cellular level in the arterial wall.

Inflammation is the body’s protective response to irritation or injury. The same wonderful mechanism that helps a paper cut heal is the same response inside the arterial wall that’s clogging our arteries. It’s an immune response.

There is, however, a miracle molecule called Nitric Oxide that:

  • Prevents high blood pressure
  • Keeps your arteries young and flexible
  • Prevents, slows, or reverses the buildup of artery-clogging plaque
  • Helps stop the formation of blood clots in arteries
  • Lowers cholesterol
  • Reduces the risk for diabetes
  • Limits the swelling and pain of arthritis
  • Reverses erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Calms asthma
  • Protects bones from osteoporosis
  • Lifts the immune system


Nitric Oxide (NO) is so important to health that 3 scientists won the Nobel Prize in 1998 for its discovery.
Nitric Oxide (NO) is so important to health that 3 scientists won the Nobel Prize in 1998 for its discovery. NO helps keep our blood vessels flexible. In a healthy artery blood flows freely. It widens and dilates easily. It maintains normal blood pressure, heart function, helps fight infection and is an important regulator of the brain and digestive function.

When there isn’t enough NO, Instead of relaxed, widened arteries we have a tense, tightened artery and when blood flows through that smaller space, blood pressure rises. Without enough NO, high blood pressure, a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke results. What makes it worse is that the increased pressure further damages artery walls and now the stage is set for artery-clogging plaques to grow.

Two amino acids L-Arginine and L-Citrulline that are found naturally in the body serve as the raw materials for the body to produce Nitric Oxide.


Arginine is a semi-essential amino acid that has shown promise in the prevention of atherosclerosis (blockage of the arteries). L-arginine is pure 100% free form arginine and 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, dilate (open up) blood vessels keeping blood flowing smoothly, relax blood vessels, 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 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 arginine to nitric oxide. As the levels of arginine rise in the body so does your production of nitric oxide, which in turn can have a dramatic and positive effect on your cardiovascular health.

There are over 85,000 medically published clinical studies attesting to the fact that arginine will help lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol and triglycerides, improve diabetes, improve sexual function, reduce blood clots and strokes, improve congestive heart failure, improve wound healing, improve liver and kidney function, improve memory and cognitive functions, increase human growth hormone (HGH), improve muscle growth and performance, and much more.


L-Citrulline is 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 “turbocharging” effect of the L-citrulline/L-arginine recycling pathway can, in fact, substantially increase nitric oxide production.


“Though NO’s structure is simple, nitric oxide is now regarded as the most significant molecule in the body, absolutely crucial to your well-being. I am convinced that the nitric oxide can age-proof your cardiovascular system, keeping it much fitter than your chronological age would indicate.” “Repairing the damage wrought by cardiovascular disease without risky and often ineffective surgery had long been considered impossible. I was awarded the noble prize in Medicine for making that thinking obsolete. Now we know we can reverse cardiovascular impairment naturally – with the body’s internally manufactured ‘wonder drug’ nitric oxide.”Louis Ignarro, Ph.D., Nobel Laureate in Medicine (1998) and author 'No More Heart Disease'

Results of Scientific Research + Clinical Studies

Medical published clinical studies have proven scientifically that nitric oxide created by arginine will do the following:
• Widen the blood vessels (increasing blood flow throughout the body)
• Soften the blood vessels (reversing the hardening of the arteries)
• Relax the blood vessels (overcoming most high blood pressure)
• Inhibit and melt away plaque (preventing and reversing atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease, heart attack, stroke and peripheral artery disease)

Additional arginine benefits based on scientific research and clinical studies:
• decreases blood pressure
• improves outcome after bypass surgery
• lowers elevated serum triglyceride levels
• improves diabetes and reverses damage caused by diabetes
• improves pituitary responsiveness and modulates the hormonal control
• improves asthma
• improves irritable bowel syndrome
• improves osteoporosis
• reduces ulcers
• improves the outcome of cancer treatment
• improves Alzheimer’s
• improves long-term and short-term memory and cognitive functions
• improves prostate function
• improves sexual function, libido, performance, and satisfaction in both men and women
• improves renal (kidney) function
• alleviates cirrhosis, helps to detoxify the liver, and liver malfunction can occur as a result of arginine deficiency
• alleviates obesity and facilitates weight loss (stimulating the release of human growth hormone from the pituitary gland)
• improves muscle performance
• increases human growth hormone (anti-aging)
• increases your energy levels to a more youthful state


“I believe that L-Arginine is the single most important discovery in the preventing heart disease that I have seen during the course of my medical career. Of course, there are many treatments for heart disease, but I haven’t seen anything as effective.” “We cannot ignore the power of L-Arginine anymore. Heart Disease is the number one killer in our country for both men and women. The main factors are arteriosclerosis, hardening of the arteries, and atherosclerosis, buildup on the arterial lining. L-Arginine reverses both problems.”Joe Prendergast, Ph.D., co-author 'The Arginine Solution' (with Woodson Merrell, MD)
“In the field of medicine and health, it is one of the revolutions of our time: The discovery that the amino acid arginine may be a “Magic Bullet” for the cardiovascular system. Now, as the evidence amounts, including research that won the Nobel Prize in Medicine, more and more scientist and doctors see the extraordinary health benefits of increasing arginine intake. A virtual arterial cleanser, arginine helps eliminate blockage and maintain blood flow.”Jonathan S. Stamler, M.D., Practicing Endocrinologist
“It does everything, everywhere. You cannot name a major cellular response or physiological effect in which [nitric oxide] is not implicated today. It’s involved in complex behavioral changes in the brain, airway relaxation, beating of the heart, dilation of blood vessels, regulation of intestinal movement, the function of blood cells, the immune system, even how fingers and arms move.”Robert Fried, Ph.D., co-author 'The Arginine Solution' (with Woodson Merrell, MD)
“This book will introduce you to the magic that is inside your blood vessels. It comes in the shape of the molecule, one of the simplest molecules found in nature. This molecule is Nitric Oxide, or NO, a substance so powerful that it can actually protect you from a heart attack and stroke. Best of all, your body can make it on its own. NO is your body’s own built-in, natural protection against heart disease.”Dr. John Cooke, M.D., Ph.D., Director of Vascular Medicine at Stanford University and author 'The Cardiovascular Cure'
