The premier Nitric Oxide producing Vegan L-Arginine food supplement
Why Take Vascular Vital?
- Vascular Vital provides L-Arginine in a form that is easily taken up by your body and at a level that can provide Nitric Oxide at high levels and hence produce outstanding health benefits.
- The research on the effects of nitric oxide within the body, using L-Arginine, and the importance for the circulatory system, resulted in the Nobel Prize for medicine in 1998.
- When Nitric Oxide is produced in the blood vessels it spreads rapidly and causes the artery muscles to relax, improving blood flow and lowering blood pressure.
- There have been over 200,000 scientific papers written on the effects of Nitric Oxide and its production from L-Arginine.
- Nitric Oxide is now known to have a positive effect on cardiovascular health, the nervous system, the immune system, lowering blood pressure, atherosclerosis (clogging of the arteries), healing and many other biochemical pathways in the body.
- L-Arginine is an amino acid that you get from your food naturally but not in sufficient quantities to make any difference to the levels of Nitric Oxide required to stimulate health benefits. Therefore supplementation with Vascular Vital is the perfect solution!
The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1998 was awarded jointly to Robert F. Furchgott, Louis J. Ignarro and Ferid Murad "for their discoveries concerning nitric oxide as a signalling molecule in the cardiovascular system".
Nitric Oxideplays a vital role in the health of your arteries, and thus your heart. Nitric Oxide is primarily produced in the blood vessels’ endothelium, or lining. There it increases blood flow, prevents fatty deposits from sticking to blood vessel walls, keeps walls from getting too thick and stiff, and prevents the arteries from narrowing. All of the major culprits in heart disease — overweight, lack of exercise, smoking, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, high levels of homocysteine and lipoprotein (a) — damage the endothelium, and a damaged endothelium doesn’t make enough Nitric Oxide, which results in more damage in an increasingly dangerous spiral, but we can help to restore endothelial health and the lining of the vessel through exercise and taking Vascular Vital.
Scientifc research from around the world has demonstrated that Nitric Oxide is one of the most significant molecules in the human body and is crucial to your well being. The difference between health and dysfunction is often the level and activity of Nitric Oxide in your body. Nitric Oxide instructs the body to perform certain key functions. In fact, Nitric Oxide influences the functioning of virtually every organ in the body, including the lungs, liver, kidneys, genitals and of course the heart!
The cardiovascular system uses Nitric Oxide to control blood flow to every part of the body. Not only can Nitric Oxide relax and dialate the blood vessels, thus ensuring the blood can efficiently nourish the heart and tissues of the entire body, Nitric Oxide can also support healthy blood pressure levels. The immune system uses Nitric Oxide to combat toxins, providing a strong internal defence system. Nitric Oxide is a powerful antioxidant, inactivating so called ‘oxegen radicals’ in the body that can contribute to cell damage. A deficiency in Nitric Oxide can have a dramatic impact on your health!
All ingredients contained in the Vascular Vital product are natural, organic and Vegan Society approved.
L-Arginine - Through a process involving an enzyme called nitric oxide synthase, L-Arginine is converted to nitric oxide in the innermost lining of the arteries known as the endothelium. In turn, nitric oxide enhances blood flow and supports cardiovascular health by dilating and relaxing arterial walls. Once in the body and the amino acid L-Arginine has changed into nitric oxide it acts as a powerful neurotransmitter that helps blood vessels relax and also improves circulation. Evidence shows that L-Arginine may help improve blood flow in the arteries of the heart. That may improve symptoms of clogged arteries, chest pain or angina and coronary artery disease. There are other potential health benefits associated with L-Arginine, such as possible reduction of blood pressure in some people and improved walking distance in patients with intermittent leg cramping and weakness known as intermittent claudication.
Mallic Acid - Malic acid is a natural substance found in fruit and vegetables – one of the richest sources being apples. It is also naturally present in your body’s cells and large amounts of it are formed and then eventually broken down again on a daily basis. It possesses many health-related benefits such as boosting immunity, maintaining oral health, reducing the risk of poisoning from a build-up of toxic metals and promoting smoother and firmer skin. Malic acid plays a vital role in improving overall muscle performance, reversing muscle fatigue following exercise, reducing tiredness and poor energy levels, as well as improving mental clarity.
L-Citrulline - L-Citrulline is a naturally occurring amino acid found in some foods like watermelons and is also produced naturally by the body. Scientific studies show the combination of L-Citrulline and L-Arginne increases Nitric Oxide production for cardiovascular and immune boosting benefits. This is why we have this important amino acid in the Vascular Vital formula. L-Citrulline, like L-Arginnine, is important in vasodialtion, the widening of blood vessel, resulting from relaxation of smooth muscle cells within the vessel walls, especially in the large arteries and veins and smaller arterioles.
Citric Acid - Citric acid is a weak organic acid found in citrus fruits – used in Vascular Vital as a natural preservative.
Grape Flavour - A natural organic flavouring that give Vascular Vital its pleasant and palatable taste.
Beetroot - Beetroot powder has a very low caloric value, are almost entirely free of fats and have a very low glycaemic load (in other words, the sugar conversion process is extremely slow and allows for a stabilisation of sugar levels in the blood). Beetroot can be used as a gentle food form and natural iron and mineral supplement to support the immune system, general health and well-being and is popular with athletes during times of extreme training, when there is a demand for stamina, endurance, high energy levels and speedy recovery. Beetroot powder is rich in natural chemicals called nitrates. Through a chain reaction, your body changes nitrates into nitric oxide, which helps with blood flow and blood pressure. A perfect addition therefore to the Vascular Vital formula!
Stevia Rebaudiana - Stevia rebaudiana is a plant species in the genus stevia of the sunflower family, which is widely grown for its sweet leaves, the source of sweetener products known as stevia. Stevia is the perfect choice to be used as a sweetener in Vascular Vital – as an all natural organic sugar substitute.
Resveratrol - Resveratrol is a member of a group of plant compounds called polyphenols. These compounds are thought to have antioxidant properties, protecting the body against the kind of damage linked to increased risk for conditions such as cancer and heart disease. Resveratrol is found in the skin of red grapes, but other sources include peanuts and berries.Because resveratrol is thought to have so many health benefits, and it’s well documented potential to support good cardiovascular health – again it was a natural choice to form part of the Vascular Vital formula.
Alergen Advice - None.
