Stress placed on coronary arteries as a result of normal cardiac function is an expected part of the aging process. This stress can lead to disruptions in arterial function, inflammation, proliferation of vascular smooth muscle, decreases in circulating nitric oxide (NO) levels, and eventually vasocontraction of key coronary arteries. CitraNOX provides a blend of targeted nutrients designed to help dampen this stress placed on endothelial cells. Using a combination of high-dose L-citrulline, quercetin and grape seed extract, CitraNOX delivers full-spectrum support to help support inflammatory balance, arterial elasticity, optimal nitric oxide levels, and blood flow. CitraNOX provides a powerful formula for those seeking to optimize several mechanisms of cardiovascular health.
4 capsules per day or as recommended by your health care professional.
L-citrulline is one of three dietary amino acids in the urea cycle responsible for converting ammonia into urea as well as for the production of NO, an important cellular signaling molecule and potent vasodilator. Recent research shows that supplementing L-citrulline bypasses liver metabolism, thus making it more bioavailable in the blood stream and allowing it to significantly impact circulating NO levels.
A flavonoid found in a variety of botanicals, vegetables and fruits, quercetin is a potent antioxidant that inhibits inducible ICAM-1 expression, an important pathway for maintaining normal levels of inflammation. Quercetin is known for its ability to improve endothelial cell dysfunction by balancing specific inflammatory pathways.
MegaNatural® BP Grape Seed Extract
MegaNatural® BP is a premium grape seed extract made in California from a special seed blend extracted with water from a variety of white wine grape seeds. Grapes and grape products contain phenolic compounds found to have health-promoting properties, particularly in cardiovascular wellness. A study examining the effects of MegaNatural® BP grape seed extract found that after four weeks of supplementation the participants were able to maintain healthy blood pressure levels.
