L-Arginine, Chelation Agents, and Omegas
Vascular Protection is much simpler than before and
has totally different ingredients. Advances in research have made it
much more successful too.
Over the counter natural products are available to anyone interested in
optimal health. L-Arginine, an essential amino acid, is the major
component for vascular protection. The recommended dosage is 5 grams or
5000 mg daily. According to a Nobel Prize Laureate, L-Citrulline is
another essential ingredient, as it enhances the synthesis of additional
L-Arginine in the body. Fumaric Acids are the best stabilizers and
flavor enhancers since they have no toxicity. Calories should be
minimal, the sources all natural and vegetable. Pills, capsules, and
tablets often do not allow for a high level of absorption or
assimilation, so liquid forms of vitamins are best.
They have been used in Germany since the 1920s when they were used
intravenously to remove the calcium in the atherosclerotic plaques of
cholesterol deposits. The oral agents are more convenient now and have
been broadened to remove other heavy metals in the body.
Omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids have been used for over 20 years as very
basic agents working on ligands deep in your metabolism. The omega 3 has
been long touted but you need small amounts of the others for natural
balance. Vegetable sources from flax seed are best.
General multivitamins should include all daily recommended values as
well as some readily absorbed minerals. They play a vital role in
metabolism, immune system, cell division, growth and development, and
many other functions. Look for general multivitamins containing vitamin
D. Vitamin D in doses of 1,000 to 2,000 IU daily is suitable. The older
you are, the more you need. Much in this amount must be given by
prescription, so depending on your level of health you may need a
combination of prescription and natural sources. The vitamin D in
prescription form should only be taken for a limited period of time,
usually two years, until your body reaches healthy values. Ask your
health care provider to guide you through this process. Remember, to
ensure superior benefits, liquid forms of vitamins are best.
Health food stores offer a wide selection of these
vitamins and minerals. Our office also offers an excellent selection of
products in liquid form; ask us about them if you are interested.
