Looking after your heart is important, and it’s something that many people, no matter what age, must start to think about more. Alongside with exercise and eating healthily, there has been evidence to show that the amino acid L-Arginine can aid heart health.
Mr Sherif Sultan of University College Hospital Galway and the Galway Clinic emphasises the importance of nutrigenomics in maintaining cardiovascular wellbeing, identifying L-Arginine as a key compound. Nutrigenomics involves the study of the impact of foods and their constituents on gene expression.
The nutrients coenzyme Q10 and L-Arginine were Nobel Prize-winning discoveries, and the latter compound is regarded as a leading amino acid in cardiovascular repair and regeneration.
L-Arginine helps to reduce blood pressure and lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, otherwise known as bad cholesterol. Sultan says these two agents have “singularly led to cardiovascular cures, even in life-threatening situations, without the need for more invasive intervention”.
After a Galway financial consultant heard about Sultan’s theory, it resulted in the formation of a company that is now producing a food supplement containing all the elements of Sultan’s wishlist ingredients.
The result, Revive Q10 Plus, is manufactured in sachet form by ABC Nutrition in Shannon, Co Clare, as a single water-soluble supplement.
Not only does it comprise coenzyme Q10 and L-Arginine, but other key ingredients also like L-Carnitine, magnesium, glutamine, and B vitamins.
Revive Q10-Plus supplement is already selling in a number of pharmacies and health food shops in Ireland.
