It’s like a trip to the gym for your cardiovascular system.

With heart health a leading concern among both men and women in America, you need every advantage you can get in protecting yourself. The discovery of an amazing molecule, Nitric Oxide (NO), can help provide you with just this sort of protection.

NO improves circulation by helping blood vessels signal the surrounding smooth muscle to relax – which widens the arteries, increases blood flow and helps maintain normal blood pressure. NO keeps your system youthful, toned, and flexible. In fact, optimizing NO production is like giving your cardiovascular system a workout every day! In addition to its numerous heart-health benefits, NO also promotes health of your immune system and acts as a neurotransmitter.

Say yes to NO
Unfortunately, a large percentage of people are deficient in their production of NO, which puts them at increased risk of cardiovascular diseases. But using amino acids like L-arginine and L-citrulline, as well as antioxidants, you can actually increase your body’s own production of NO. To help optimize your NO production, use Niteworks® and Core Complex from Herbalife.*

Quick tips from the doctor:

  1. Eat a healthy diet low in saturated fat to reduce the risk of plaque build-up in arteries.
  2. Daily exercise improves the elasticity of your blood vessels.
  3. Get a full night’s sleep to rest and revitalize.

Dr. Louis Ignarro answers a few of your questions about Niteworks® and Nitric Oxide.

Q: What is the easiest way to teach customers about Nitric Oxide (NO)?

A: Think about how difficult it is to blow up a balloon on the first try. Now imagine how much easier it would be if you stretched it out first to make it more flexible. Like stretching a balloon, Nitric Oxide makes arteries and veins more flexible-supporting improved blood flow and delivery of nutrients to your cells. NO supports your long-term cardiovascular health.*

Q: Does Niteworks® contain sugar? My clients on sugar-restricted diets are concerned.

A: Niteworks® powder does not contain sugar. It contains sucralose, which is a nonnutritive sweetener derived from sugar, but is safe for people who need to control their sugar intake.

Q: When should I take Niteworks®?

A: I suggest that you take Niteworks® before you go to bed at night. It’s designed to be consumed at night, when your body produces the least amount of Nitric Oxide from exercise and food. However, it is okay to take Niteworks® in the morning, mixed with your juice, for example. I do this myself and I find that it gives me an extra lift during the day and more overall energy.
