Amino-Flo is a unique blend of amino acids specifically designed to increase nitric oxide (NO) production which can aid in cardiac function.
Nitric oxide is essential for proper function of the cardiovascular system. The cardio protective roles of NO include regulation of blood pressure and vascular tone, inhibition of platelet aggregation and leukocyte adhesion, and prevention smooth muscle cell proliferation. Reduced availability of NO is thought to be a major contributor to cardiovascular dysfunction.
With proper levels of NO the endothelium, lining of the blood vessels, is able to prevent blood borne products, like cholesterol, from sticking. Without NO the endothelium attracts blood products to stick in places causing problems.
Amino-Flo is a combination of amino acids known for their ability to increase NO. L-Arginine works rapidly to increase NO while the L-Citrulline is more of a timed release form of Arginine. Citrulline is metabolized into Arginine in the gut and in the kidney providing a long lasting effect of increased NO.
Also in this formula is L-Proline is which acts like "Teflon" in the blood vessels inhibiting the stickiness of Lipoproteins, fatty globules, preventing the buildup of plaque. L-Proline may help release already deposited fatty globules from the vessel walls back into the blood stream.
L-Lysine is another essential amino acid that works in conjunction with the L-Proline in freeing up some of the fatty globules already deposited being released back into the blood stream.
Although not considered an essential amino acid, L-Glycine is included due to the fact of it being involved in DNA synthesis which helps in wound healing. When we are dealing with damage in the arteries healing is very important.
All these amino acids are necessary for proper cardio protection and healing and must be taken in adequate quantities on a daily basis. We suggest a morning dose as well as an evening dose, thus providing an ongoing ready supply of nutrients to maintain proper NO production.
