Dr. Ignarro's preliminary research explained that there was a naturally occurring substance that C-Laureate Dr. Robert Furchgott called "endothelium-derived relaxing factor" (EDRF). Dr "I" identified Nitric Oxide (NO) between 1978 and by 1986 proved that "nitric oxide's role in the body was definitely a signal molecule, which performed crucial cardiovascular functions." Arterial plaque he illustrated, "if you think of the living healthy wall cells as being slick like Teflon, while an unhealthy cell is sticky like Velcro, causing plaque to attach" then you've got his idea. His program titled, "Say Yes to NO" recognizes that "red meat fish, olive oil, nuts and pomegranate juice enhance the body's ability to produce NO. Unfortunately he cautions, you would have to eat one hefty steak all three meals a day to maintain a beneficial level of NO. Therefore he recommends a NO boosting blend of amino acid supplements: L-Arginine, L-Citrulline plus Alpha Lipoic Acid, C, E, and Folic Acid and adds, "the acceleration of blood that occurs during exercise can stimulate the production of the enzyme NO synthase, which is important to the body's production of NO." That means it works better if you exercise!

Dr Ignarro is brilliant...i believe he wrote this book so that the average Joe could improve his heart and sexual health and he recommends taking the naturally occuring nutrients arginine and citrulline to increase NO levels. Unfortunately the average Joe with early heart disease responds to all the TV ads and will take Viagra as prescribed by his doctor. Ignarro's recommendations are much safer and effective for long term improvement of heart disease and high blood pressure problems. Sadly most doctors will not know this.
All my thanks to Dr. Ignarro.
