Overview

Dr. Louis Ignarro discovered "the atom" of cardiovascular health--a tiny molecule called Nitric Oxide. NO, as it is known by chemists, is a signaling molecule produced by the body, and is a vasodilator that helps control blood flow to every part of the body. Dr. Ignarro's findings led to the development of Viagra. Nitric Oxide has a beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system as well.

NO relaxes and enlarges the blood vessels, prevents blood clots that trigger strokes and heart attacks, and regulates blood pressure and the accumulation of plaque in the blood vessels. Dr. Ignarro's current research indicates that Nitric Oxide may help lower cholesterol by facilitating the actions of statin drugs like Lipitor.

The goal of the regimen presented in NO More Heart Disease is to age proof the cardiovascular system, keeping the vascular network clean and elastic through enhanced NO productivity. The plan is easy-to-follow without extreme lifestyle adjustments, involving taking supplements to stimulate Nitric Oxide production, incorporating NO friendly food into the diet, and a moderate exercise program.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The discovery of Nitric Oxide by Lou Ignarro, and the role that it plays in reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, is as important as the discovery of penicillin and insulin.” —David Heber, M.D., Ph.D., Director, UCLA Center for Human Nutrition
If author credentials are important to you, look no further: Dr. Louis Ignarro received a Nobel Prize in Medicine for his discovery of nitric oxide, the tiny molecule that is a key to cardiovascular health. The properties of NO are impressive: It relaxes and enlarges blood vessels; prevents blood clots that trigger heart attacks and strokes; and regulates blood pressure and the accumulation of plaque in the blood vessels. Dr. Ignarro's recent research indicates that NO may help lower cholesterol by facilitating the actions of statin drugs like Lipitor. This accessible book provides a proven, easy-to-follow program for boosting production of this internal wonder drug.

Every six secound an American dies from a cardio-vascular event, the largest killer of American to date. It doesn't have to be, why because Dr.Louis Ignaro;the Noble prize winner in medicine for discoverying a powerful enzyme, L-arrginne. I have read this book numerous times. It has help me reduce my blood pressure that was uncontrollable to 117/70. I was taking over 4 hp pills and now I am on 1,and hopefully I'll be off of that. I am taking a liguid L-arrginne supplement. (5grams) This book is a must, we don't have to die from strokes, diabetes,heart attacks, Tell you friends and families to purchase this book. The life you save might be your own.

Very informative. Written so a non-medical person can understand the incredible effects of NO on the body. I immediately started using Niteworks from Herbalife, and have been very pleased with the results.

Dr. Ignarro is a Genius! Dr. Ignarro's book is based on 30 years of research with Nitric Oxide, the stuff you product naturally when you work out! Hence, working out is good for you. I am using the Niteworks product and I sleep like a baby and have no more lower back pain. I now help others lower blood pressure (with their doctor's consent), etc, with Dr. Ignarro's baby!! I have had the great privelege of being trained in health by Dr.Ignarro himself.

Since starting NiteWorks about 4 months ago, I no longer have to worry about my legs and feet going numb without warning. In fact, I no longer take prescription meds for this condition caused by back trauma from an industrial accident.

Enjoyed the book tremendously - I have switched to the Doctor's Niteworks supplement and already have a seen a profound change in my cholestrol levels and circulatory systems (fingers don't turn white in cold weather). No surgery - common sense.
