A simple new device that clips onto the finger tip can warn if your arteries are putting you at risk of heart disease. In Ireland sudden death claims up to 10,000 lives every year.
There is growing evidence that people who have hardened arteries may develop conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and kidney disease in the future. Stiffened arteries prevent the blood flowing around the body, which means the heart has to work harder to get blood around the body, putting it under strain.
When the arteries become stiff and deposited with plaque and other fatty substances, the body is much more likely to suffer thrombus, heart attack, or stroke. It is generally accepted that stiffening of the arteries is a fact of life - all part of the ageing process. There is evidence that taking the right supplement can not only stop this process of stiffening but in many cases reverse it.
Bio Test is developed and designed by UK scientists and approved by the medical device agency.
Heart disease is the most common cause of death in Ireland.
In their book The Arginine Solution, Robert Fried PhD, James Thornton, and Woodson C Merrell MD consider just a sample of the many jobs Arginine Derived Nitric Oxide (ADNO ) has been shown to perform inside the human body.
The fact sheet below is taken from that book.
ADNO fact sheet
It relaxes arteries, thereby helping maintain normal blood pressure, which would otherwise skyrocket when ADNO is in short supply.
It helps keep open the coronary arteries that supply blood to the heart, preventing angina pain.
It’s a potent free - radical scavenger that helps to both lower serum cholesterol and prevent the bad LDL cholesterol from oxidizing and worsening.
It’s a powerful anticoagulant, or blood thinner, that helps prevent blood platelets from clumping together into the clots that cause heart attack and stroke.
It enhances blood flow to the penis, helping to boost erections.
It serves as a critical bullet for different immune system cells that use it to kill foreign bacteria and viruses and even shrink or destroy some cancerous tumours.
It is used by the brain to encode long term memory and ensure blood flow to brain cells.
It functions as a messenger molecule that allows nerve cells in the body and the brain to communicate with each other.
It may reduce pregnancy related hypertension, a potentially life-threatening condition for mother and child.
It may help regulate insulin secretion by the pancreas, thereby reducing the risk of diabetes.
It helps control the lung airways, allowing you to breathe easier and avoid common lung disorders.
It relaxes hypertonic sphincter muscles, preventing and healing haemorrhoids and anal fissures.
It stimulates the body into releasing the all-important human growth hormone (HGH ), a key to longevity as well as improvement in body composition by boosting lean muscle mass and bone density while decreasing fat tissue.
