The Importance of Good Health – Especially Heart Health…

Isn’t it obvious? The importance of good health, that is? I guess it must NOT be obvious given how we as a nation eat and behave. 

Heart Health

Consider this – you’re born with a healthy heart (and this is considered NORMAL). But then… we (as a group in general) trade in physical activity (as was typical of earlier generations) for more sedentary pursuits. Add a touch (or a ton) of processed foods, carbonated beverages, and chemical ingredients that no one without a PhD in Chemistry can pronounce, and what do you have?

A GREAT formula for…

Cardiovascular (Heart) Disease

Over  85 million – yes OVER 85 MILLION Americans’ have some form of cardiovascular disease – go ahead, check me on that statistic! Why don’t we hear more? I can guarantee you if 85+ million had the common cold at any one time, it would make front page headlines. So, why not cardiovascular disease? After all, it is MUCH more serious than the common cold, isn’t it? 

I believe it boils down to this: cardiovascular disease is a SILENT disease in many cases UNTIL it strikes – and once it does, IF you survive the “event”, the “fun” is just beginning – a wealth of visits to a number of different specialists. Combined with a regimen of drugs, you and  your life savings are sure to be separated in short order.

Arginine to the rescue…

I hate to place any one thing on a pedestal, but of all the preventative approaches, arginine, a semi-essential amino acid seems to be a viable answer. I trust it to the point that I take it myself DAILY. 

According to WebMD (and other sources), here is why we need arginine.

Why we need it: 
  • Wound healing
  • Helping the kidneys remove waste products from the body
  • Maintaining immune and hormone function (some use it to prevent the common cold)
  • Dilates and relaxes the arteries 
    • improves circulation (men – you’ll notice improved blood flow in one area fairly quickly – hint: poor man’s viagara!) – 
    • may even help with ED (source – WebMD) – referred to as a “prosexual nutrient” (source:
    • higher blood flow also makes vaginal tissues more sensitive – so women, you’re not left out on this benefit
    • shows promise in lowering BP (personal experience!)Used 
    • used by MD’s for Congestive Heart Failure (webmd) and Coronary Artery Disease
    • can reduce pain in legs due to peripheral artery disease (blocked arteries)
    • some diabetics report increased blood flow helps with cold hands and feet
  • Works for migranes (with ibuprofen)
  • Plays a role in muscle growth  (body builders use it), formation of tendons and bone, incr. muscle mass/reduce body fat, reduce risk of blood clots and stroke (source:

Now the reality is, your body CAN produce all the arginine you need, so why supplement it? Simple, it ONLY produces arginine when you EAT RIGHT and get ENOUGH EXERCISE… ‘nuf said?

So, without sounding like a “pitch man”, I’m going to point you to the Arginine formulation I use personallyI selected this one based upon ingredients and believe it is priced to be highly competitive with ANY other arginine produce on the market. So for me, my plan is reasonable exercise, good diet rich in natural foods including fruits and veggies, AND a daily dose of 5g of Arginine.

One in Three suffer and die from this – and it does NOT have to be YOU…

Locating myself in a super healthy area like Steamboat for the winter has really focused me on a mission to “get the word out” about heart disease, heart disease risk, and the related conditions (stroke, heart failure, etc.) In fact, I even created a blog just for this topic – called Heart Disease Risk.

As a ski instructor and avid skier, I have the opportunity to work with a large number of people. Some are others as myself, avid skiers, others are “weekend warriors” who come to Steamboat to get away from their day to day lives.

heart disease risk

it really DOES rock out here!

My role here confirms what I already knew: If you lead a healthy lifestyle, your odds of living an active life greatly increase throughout your life. You see, our ski school has SEVERAL “octogenarians” (folks OVER 80), and you should see them ski!

I know for myself, at 54, after 2 months of “intensive” training, I feel like I’m 18. Just today, I got off the slopes (7 inches of fresh snow by the way!) and feel strong, even after pushing myself to ski about 6 “black diamond” runs in a row – and I mean REALLY ski them, not just “get down them.” Oh, and did I mention that they were TREE RUNS primarily. That means, if you make a mistake, you may find yourself in a tree well or worse!

Now, what about my students? Well, they have ranged in age from 14 to 70. Some are in good condition, many are not. I just spent two weekends working with a 43 year old man who is finding out that 25 years of “lying around” has left him out of shape – the good news is, he is open to getting back into shape. And even in one week, he is much better. Last Saturday, he was ready for a body bag by 2pm!

Activity and conditioning is important, but it is not everything. A good diet certainly helps and from a book I read a while back, I try to stick to “God made foods” and NOT “man made foods”. But… there is one more step –

Being a chemist, I know the importance of supplements. NOT the “typical vitamin” supplements that simply make expensive pee; but the kind that can make a difference. Those are few and far between – but – the good news is I’ve found one.

It is called Cardio Protogen, is made by a company called Good Life and contains Arginine. The video below shares my thoughts on arginine, the company I am recommending to you and the arginine product they produce – essentially answering why arginine and why Cardio Protogen. If you like what you hear, contact me (561 676 1205) to see about ordering Cardio Protogen and/or becoming part of our distribution network and profiting with us (there IS a real pathway to becoming a distributor with $0 investment in the ‘opportunity’ – I hate those $299 and $399 “distributor fees”, don’t you?!)

About Heart Disease…This post could LITERALLY save your life

That is a strong claim to make in ANY post, especially on the topic of heart disease but consider the findings in this article…

Important: We wish to provide background on the issue of heart disease here and a REAL solution, please DO read on if you want the ‘whole story’ – BUT – if you are a “bottom line” kind of person, you can SCROLL DOWN to view a video highlighting COMPELLING RESEARCH concerning Arginine (and why we ALL need it) OR click here to review the Arginine product we recommend.

“27 Years | No Deaths from Vitamins, 3 Million from Prescription Drugs”

Over the past 27 years — the complete time frame that the data has been available —  there have been 0 deaths as a result of vitamins and over 3 million deaths related to prescription drug use. In fact, going back 54 years there have only been 11 claims of vitamin-related death, all of which provided no substantial evidence to link vitamins to the cause of death. The news comes after a recent statistically analysis found that pharmaceutical drug deaths now outnumber traffic fatalities in the US. In 2009, drugs exceeded the amount of traffic-related deaths, killing at least 37,485 people nationwide. Read more:

Lets digest the essence of this article

While pharmaceuticals are a valuable tool given certain circumstances, I’m sure you would agree that remaining healthy is THE key so you are never faced with a NEED to take prescription drugs. The key question we then face is “How do I maximize my health, and minimize the chances I will ever need to take prescription meds for heart disease (or anything else for that matter)?” Why does ANY of this matter?  Simple… Heart Disease (and stroke) is the #1 Killer in our society today! Think about your friends and family – odds are YOU know someone personally (or you yourself) have been “touched” by this silent killer.

We’re talking about the LENGTH and QUALITY of YOUR LIFE…

You see, I love the Kenny Chesney song that says “everybody wants to go to heaven, just not right now!” (ok, ok, i’m paraphrasing it…gimme a break!) So, lets work on that premise – and lets also agree that for the time we are “here” (alive on this planet), it would be better to be HEALTHY…right? Of course this begins with good eating habits and regular exercise. But, thanks to “modern science” we now know there are supplements we can take that will increase the odds of living life HEALTHY for the vast majority of our lives. Further, some of these “potions” can even reverse certain conditions. I realize that the moment one gets anywhere near claims about health, the red flags go up with most people. Me too. I can’t begin to tell you how skeptical I was introduced to Arginine (sometimes referred to as nitric oxide) and Arginine Infusion … **Arginine which shows great promise in the reduction in the incidence of heart disease**.

Arginine (nitric oxide) and Heart Disease

Arginine Infusion – natural support to assist in the reduction of heart disease (CLICK HERE to access Arginine Infusion)

Honestly, it took hours of discussion and testimonials from my own brother (who had seen some friends have their first heart attacks) and discovered Arginine Infusion for himself, and then a 3 hour face to face meeting with the CEO (of Good Life), Steven Smith before I was willing to even TRY it. What I learned from my meeting  with Steven is he is genuinely different from other “nutritional MLM” companies and entrepreneurs. Steven does his own design, manufacture and production of his products – all of them. He is knowledgeable about health and nutrition and genuinely cares to make “best in class” products. Arginine Infusion, “frankly is something that EVERYONE north of 40 should be taking.” Why do I make this bold statement? I will let the research speak for itself – watch this video… YouTube Preview Image Briefly, Ignarro found why arginine lowers your risk of heart attack and stroke…and since heart disease & stroke are the #1 killers in America today… to me it just made sense to become a user of Arginine Infusion. Compare its ingredients here to other arginine products – and there are plenty of them. So, what makes Arginine Infusion different?

  • bio-availability – how well your body absorbs it – Arginine Infusion readily dissolves to provide what is typically the BEST bio-availability
  • the mix of ingredients – including 5000 mg of arginine and 1000mg citrulline; vitamin A (all called for by Dr. Ignarro) AND for good measure: resveratrol; grape seed extract; co-enzyme Q10; Omega 3 (from fish oil) and 70 plant-sea ionic minerals
  • what it does NOT have – read labels!! There are NO harmful substances in this formulation
Does it work? In a word – Yes.
