All About L-Arginine CardioMax
PROPRIETARY CARDIO BLEND – L-Arginine Cardio Max supports cardiovascular and lung health by Increasing Nitric Oxide levels and blood flow. L-Arginine Cardio Max is a bestselling Arginine formula based on Noble Prize-winning research in the 90’s, and the discovery of Nitric Oxide, considered by some as the most important advancement in the fight to maintain blood pressure and overall cardio health.
Our Proprietary Cardio Blend contains a host of heart healthy ingredients; in addition to L-Arginine we have included L-Citrulline which acts as a catalyst extending the body’s production of nitric oxide. Nitric Oxide has a host of benefits and helps regulate blood pressure levels. Our formula contains a multitude of heart healthy ingredients to complement Nitric Oxide production. L-Arginine Max is for serious athletes seeking increased strength and endurance. It also for anyone seeking to improve cardiovascular health, increased virility & stamina.

How are they related?
As soon as citrulline enters the kidney, vascular endothelium and other tissues, it is converted into arginine. Plasma and tissue levels of arginine increase, which is necessary for the production of nitric oxide and relaxation of blood vessels. An additional benefit of supplemental citrulline is that it helps eliminate ammonia, a highly toxic substance, from the liver.
Will they help my sex life?
The answer is yes. Arginine has been well studied for its ability to enhance sexual satisfaction. Both men and women report longer and more intense orgasms when their intake of arginine increases. Additionally, arginine is often used by men to achieve long lasting and harder erections. Since citrulline is a precursor for arginine and arginine is a precursor to nitric oxide, you can combine the two for enhanced sexual pleasure and vascular health.
But you’re probably not eating six cups of watermelon every day, and actually it isn’t recommended. Watermelon is high in fructose (fruit sugar) and it’s a natural diuretic, so you’d be spending a whole lot of time in the bathroom.
In addition to watermelon, citrulline is found in cucumbers and cantaloupe, at very low levels, as well as the milk protein casein. But since it is a nonessential amino acid, you don’t have to rely on getting citrulline from food. It is manufactured from other nutrients in your body, however, you only manufacture it if you are young and healthy and producing those other essential nutrients in adequate amounts!
Reduces Blood Pressure
In another recent study, citrulline supplementation was shown to reduce blood pressure in 17 young (average age 21.6 years) men with normal blood pressure after they were submitted to a cold pressor test (CPT). (A cold pressor test is a cardiovascular test done by having the subject immerse his hand into a bucket of ice water for one minute. Blood pressure and heart rate are then evaluated.)
Even more importantly, new studies are showing that supplemental citrulline also assists in nitric oxide production by boosting blood levels of arginine.
The men were randomly assigned to four weeks of oral citrulline (6 grams/day) or placebo in a crossover design. Blood pressure was measured after the blood pressor test. The results showed that compared to placebo, oral citrulline decreased brachial systolic blood pressure (-6 +/- 11 mm Hg), aortic systolic blood pressure (-4 +/- 10 mm Hg), and aortic pulse pressure (-3 +/- 6 mm Hg) during CPT but not at rest, suggesting improved production of nitric oxide under stress.
Boost Immune System Function
Citrulline’s beneficial effects on nitric oxide were also demonstrated in a group of male professional cyclists who took 6 grams of oral citrulline before a race. Researchers found that the racers’ levels of arginine increased, as well as their neutrophil immune cells. Citrulline’s enhancement of immunity may benefit endurance athletes as it has long been noted that immune defenses drop after an intense athletic event, increasing susceptibility to infection.

Cardio Max Key Ingredients:
L-arginine is a semi-essential amino acid involved in numerous areas of human biochemistry, including ammonia detoxification, hormone secretion, and immune modulation. Arginine is also well known as a precursor to nitric oxide (NO), a key component of endothelial-derived relaxing factor, an endogenous messenger molecule involved in a variety of endothelium-dependent physiological effects in the cardiovascular system.
L-citrulline is an amino acid which works in the NO-cycle to produce L-arginine which further enhances the production of Nitric Oxide. L-Citrulline is a natural amino acid that supports sports performance and good health, while at the same time helping the liver detoxify. L-Citrulline helps the body rid itself of ammonia, a by-product of intense exercise. This clearing enables the body to recover after a workout, and it frees ATP energy for enhanced uses such as respiration and signal transduction.
Perilla Oil is a new source of alpha-linolenic acid derived from the seeds of the Perilla frutescens plant found in India, Burma, Japan, and China. Perilla oil is, by composition, 50-60% alpha-linolenic acid. Perilla oil and ALA have begun to generate excitement as more studies report that a diet rich in ALA may be helpful in preventing heart disease, strokes, and arthritis, and that Perilla oil may help reduce the risk of colon cancer, breast cancer, colitis, obesity, and asthma.
ETDA is Ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid. EDTA removes lead and heavy metals from the body by bonding to them through “chelation”, and carrying them away naturally in waste. EDTA is also an excellent chelator of calcium which accumulates in vascular walls increasingly as we age, causing hardening of the arteries and atherosclerotic plaques which obstruct blood flow. EDTA’s systemic action benefits not just the heart but all vessels and organs. In addition, it is a powerful antioxidant, especially effective at reducing lipid peroxidation – a major cause of atherosclerosis.
Monk fruit contains powerful antioxidants called mogrosides, which are metabolized differently by the body than natural sugars. Monk Fruit has no calories. A study that observed the effect of monk fruit extract on diabetic mice not only found that mogrosides had the capacity to improve blood sugar response, but also were able to control side effects related to high cholesterol.
This effect was thought to be achieved by protecting the cholesterol from oxidation which is a common cause of arterial plaque build-up. Additionally, monk fruit extract may go even further for cardiovascular health by promoting an increase in HDL cholesterol.
Pomegranate Fruit Extract provides a very absorbable (up to 95%) and powerful set of antioxidants, providing benefits which range from promoting cardiovascular health to prostate health.
Hawthorn can help improve the amount of blood pumped out of the heart during contractions, widen the blood vessels, and increase the transmission of nerve signals. Hawthorn also seems to have blood pressure-lowering activity, according to early research. It seems to cause relaxing of the blood vessels farther from the heart. It seems that this effect is due to a component in hawthorn called proanthocyanidin. Research suggests that Hawthorn fruit extract may lower cholesterol by increasing the excretion of bile, reducing the formation of cholesterol, and enhancing the receptors for LDLs. It also seems to have antioxidant activity.
Tart Cherry Extract provides high levels of flavonoids especially anthocyanins which do a better job of protecting arteries than vitamin C or E alone. Tart cherries also contain compounds called SOD (super oxide dismutase) which are thought to act as scavengers of free radicals. This is significant because very few natural foods contain SOD, which means the body often lacks health-beneficial levels. A 1996 Harvard study reported that men in particular should eat more flavonoid-rich foods for cardiovascular health.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a powerful antioxidant that has been shown to be beneficial for heart health by protecting LDL cholesterol from oxidation and by re-energizing the mitochondria in the heart cells, which is where energy metabolism occurs. CoQ10 may also help lower blood pressure.
Black Pepper has been shown to reduce fat levels in the blood stream. In addition to its benefits for weight management, piperine has been suggested to increase the absorption of other nutrients in the body.
