Overview

NO More Heart Disease: How Nitric Oxide Can Prevent--Even Reverse--Heart Disease and Strokes by Louis Ignarro

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.

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.
