Here's Why Arginine Is Nearly Useless For People Over 40…
Plus What MIT Researchers Say You Should Be Doing Instead
You've probably heard about nitric oxide, the molecule that improves heart health, energy levels, and sexual performance.
The most common advice is to take l-arginine to boost nitric oxide. But the fact is, it's hard for your body to turn l-arginine into nitric oxide. Especially if you're over 40.1
I'll tell you more about this problem and how to solve it in a moment. But first, I'd like to tell you about some new findings on nitric oxide that will amaze you.
The Miracle Molecule
As you may know, nitric oxide is a little gas molecule produced in our bodies. It impacts the health of every cell, tissue, and organ. In fact, it is so important that the scientists who discovered what it does for us won the Nobel Prize.2
And nitric oxide does a lot for us. Hundreds of studies show that nitric oxide boosts circulation … supports a healthy heart … and improves our sex lives.
These are all great benefits. So great, that based on these alone I'd urge my patients to support healthy nitric oxide levels. But nitric oxide does so much more than just support your circulatory system and improve your sex life. New research shows that nitric oxide is also…
Nature's Weapon Against "Senior Moments"
Do you ever forget where you parked your car? Walk into a room and suddenly draw a blank as to why you're there? Forget someone's name right after you meet them? Or worse, run into an old friend and stammer as you try to remember her name?
Well, here's good news! Studies show that nitric oxide improves memory, slow response and confused thinking in three ways:
✔ It helps store memories as they are created;
✔ It helps retrieve memories later on; and
✔ It helps brain cells send and receive signals more quickly.3
Indeed, the brain-boosting effects of nitric oxide have been proven in before-and-after MRIs of the brain.3 I'll tell you more about those studies in a minute. But first, let me tell you about another little-known benefit of nitric oxide:
