My blood pressure update.
About six weeks ago, I sent an email message to Unfiltered News subscribers telling of a nutritional supplement called ProArgi-9+ that had impressed me for its ability to protect against circulatory disorders, including heart attack and stroke. It contains an amino acid, called L-Arginine, plus several powerful anti-oxidants. In the walls of arteries, L-Arginine triggers the formation of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide relaxes blood vessels, producing an immediate but short-term beneficial effect. The anti-oxidants help to eliminate the cause of plaque buildup inside the arteries, producing a delayed but long-term beneficial effect. This combined action is powerful.
If you did not see my original announcement or if you would like to re-examine the scientific rationale behind this process, it is repeated at the bottom of this email.
When I was interviewed on camera regarding ProArgi-9+, I said that I had recently started taking the product and promised to report what effect it would have on my blood pressure as time goes by. Exactly 100 days after I began this supplement – even though I adhered only about 70% to my planned regimen of four scoops per day – my blood pressure had dropped forty points – and was still going down. As with most people who work under stress, my blood pressure varies from day to day but, on the day I started taking this supplement, it was 177 over 94! When I checked on the one-hundredth day, it was 137 over 79. Here is the record since then. The next entry will be made in about two weeks, and I will continue to publish the results.
Diastolic and Systolic:
2012/03/04 ~ 177 ~ 94
2012/06/14 ~ 137 ~ 79
2012/07/07 ~ 126 ~ 79
2012/07/31 ~ 124 ~ 80
If you are concerned about high blood pressure, heart attacks, and strokes but want to avoid the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs that commonly are prescribed for these conditions, you should consider ProArgi-9+. The company tells me that customers who purchased the product in response to my first announcement already are coming back for re-orders. By the way, if you are one of those customers, please let us know what your experience has been, so we can pass the word to others.

THE ORIGINAL ANNOUNCEMENT
I first became interested in the non-drug treatment of chronic diseases in the 1970s, which led to the publication of my book, World without Cancer; The Story of Vitamin B17. Since then, I have tried to keep up with the latest research and product development in the field of natural health. At one time, I helped to formulate several nutritional supplements that proved to be effective in controlling hypoglycemia and even cardio-vascular disorders. I thought I was well informed on these topics but, in retrospect, I had much to learn.
After a public presentation in Boston recently, a young man introduced himself to me and gave me a brochure on a therapy for circulatory disorders. His name was Craig Newhouse, and he said this therapy was a medical breakthrough. I was inclined to slough it off as just another marketing pitch based more on hype than science. After all, I thought I knew "all that stuff." If there had been a medical breakthrough, surely, I would have heard about it.
When I returned to my hotel room, I glanced at the brochure again expecting to quickly toss it into the round file – but, to my surprise, I didn't see anything that looked like hype. I didn't see any of the expected claims of subjective results, such as "My energy improved," or "I felt better immediately." Instead, I read that the results of this therapy are measured by hard numbers produced by mechanical devices that test blood pressure and oxidative stress, not subjective feelings of well being. And I read that the man who discovered the biological process upon which this therapy is based received the Nobel Prize in Medicine for his work. At the center of this process was a compound naturally produced in the body, called Nitric Oxide (NO) – and I had not heard about any of this before. My first thought was that NO was a toxic pollutant. I had no knowledge of its role in human health.
That captured my attention and, after I returned from my tour, I checked the Internet, primarily looking for negative comments, expecting to find "I tried this and it doesn't work," or "It's pure bunk based on junk science." To my surprise, there was none of that. Instead, I found reviews by people with excellent scientific credentials all saying pretty much what was stated in the brochure, except in more detail.
Next, I obtained several books on the topic, including The Cardiovascular Cure, by John P. Cooke, M.D., Ph.D. (Director of Vascular Medicine at Stanford Medical School), and No More Heart Disease, by Louis Ignarro, Ph.D., professor of pharmacology at the UCLA School of Medicine (the Noble Prize winner who discovered the role played by Nitric Oxide in the vascular system). I was impressed by the science behind this therapy and, because of that, I was more willing to consider the impressive testimonials.
The next step was to try the product for myself. Exactly 100 days after I began taking this supplement – even though I adhered only about 70% to my planned regimen of four scoops per day – my blood pressure had dropped forty points – and was still going down.
I am convinced that this therapy is effective in combating cardiovascular disease and I feel confident recommending it to others, especially those over forty. If you would like to learn more, click on the link below and watch a short video.
