NEW YORK (PRWEB) March 21, 2019
Inflammation is an enemy that attacks every part of the human body, including blood vessels. Arterial blockage, or atherosclerosis, is a biological condition directly linked to high LDL cholesterol levels. Regulating cholesterol helps, but consistent blood flow is critical to healthy arteries.
That’s why MyHealthDriver developed EnerFlex PROCARDO 4.0 with Kyowa Quality® L-Citrulline and L-Arginine. The latter ingredient is crucial for nitric oxide (NO) production, which supports vascular dilation and circulation. L-Citrulline is a major precursor to L-Arginine and has been shown to increase L-Arginine levels. More L-Arginine means improved NO production, which leads to increased blood flow. *
“The entire innovation of EnerFlex PROCARDO 4.0 is based on the premise that a healthy cholesterol profile with effective removal of excessive cholesterol and boosting endothelial NO may help slow progression of atherosclerosis,” said Lin-Keong Kim, Director and Product Innovator for MyHealthDriver.Com. “Adding Kyowa Quality® L-Citrulline and L-Arginine to EnerFlex PROCARDO 4.0 provides a nitric oxide boost to help increase peripheral and central blood flow.” *
Kyowa Hakko received a patent in 2014 for a combination of L-Citrulline and L-Arginine that can quickly increase blood arginine levels compared to individual amino acids. According to the patent, this combination “increases blood flow within 1 hour and 40 minutes…compared to Citrulline or Arginine alone.” Other research also shows a partnering of L-Citrulline and L-Arginine can have beneficial effects on the body. *
A study recently published in the Journal of International Society of Sports Nutrition shows oral supplementation with L-Citrulline before exercise may reduce the time take to complete a cycle ergometer exercise trial by increasing L-Arginine levels – resulting in better NO production – that provide increased circulation to muscle. *
A related study on rats and rabbits published in a 2014 issue of Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications showed L-Citrulline plus L-Arginine supplementation caused a more rapid increase in plasma L-Arginine levels and marked enhancement of NO bioavailability, including plasma cGMP concentrations, than with dosage with the single amino acids. *
Each sachet of EnerFlex PROCARDO 4.0 includes 250mg of Kyowa Quality® L-Citrulline and 250mg of L-Arginine. It also contains natural astaxanthin, palm tocotrienols, water-soluble fiber, probiotics, and prebiotics.

About Kyowa Hakko’s L-Citrulline
L-Citrulline is an amino acid that plays an important role in nitric oxide metabolism and regulation. L-Citrulline is converted to L-Arginine in the body, leading to sustained increases in both L-Arginine and nitric oxide. An ingredient with application in the areas of heart health and sports nutrition, L-Citrulline is preservative-free, allergen-free, and contains no artificial flavors or colors. It’s low hygroscopicity, high stability, and mild taste makes it suitable for use in a variety of formulations. As proteins do not contain L-Citrulline, taking L-Citrulline is the sole way of direct supplementation of this unique amino acid to the body. Manufactured in the U.S. using a fermentation process, l-citrulline is an pure amino acid that carries the Kyowa Quality logo, ensuring you an ingredient backed by our commitment to the highest manufacturing standards.
