Cardio Pro is a uniquely designed, powerful, nutriceutical formulation, which
contains L-Lysine, L-Proline, Magnesium and Potassium Ascorbates, Citrus
Bioflavonoids and Menaquinone (Vitamin K2), based upon the brilliant, scientific
research discoveries of Dr. Linus Pauling and Dr. Mathias Rath, that
significantly helps to prevent and promote the healing of atherosclerosis
(hardening of the arteries) by controlling the free radical, oxidative,
stress-induced inflammation, which underlies atherogenesis, affecting the blood
vessels, heart, brain and other vital organ systems.
Mechanisms of Action:
Linus Pauling Ph.D, twice winner (laureate) of the Nobel Prize, and Matthias
Rath, M.D., published "A Unified Theory of Human Cardiovascular Disease Leading
the Way to the Abolition of This Disease as a Cause for Human Mortality" that
gives an explanation for the mechanisms of cardiovascular disease and provides a
safe, effective and reliable way to control it.
Dr. Linus Pauling is quoted as saying: "This disease is the direct
consequence of the inability of man to synthesize ascorbate (vitamin C) in
combination with insufficient intake of ascorbate in the modern diet. Since
ascorbate deficiency is the common cause of human CVD, ascorbate
resupplementation is the universal treatment for this disease. Further clinical
confirmation of this theory should lead to the abolition of CVD as a cause of
human mortality for the present generation and future generations of mankind."
The determining principles of this comprehensive theory are summarized as
1) Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is the direct consequence of the inability
for endogenous ascorbate (vitamin C) production in humans, in combination with
low dietary ascorbate intake.
2) Ascorbate deficiency leads to increased permeability of the vascular wall by the
loss of the endothelial barrier function and the degeneration and loosening of
the vascular connective tissue.
3) After the loss of endogenous ascorbate production, scurvy and fatal blood loss
through the scorbutic vascular wall rendered our ancestors in danger of
extinction. Under this evolutionary pressure over millions of years, genetic and
metabolic countermeasures were favored that counteract the increased
permeability of the vascular wall.
4) The genetic level in humans is characterized by the fact that inherited
disorders associated with CVD became the most frequent among all genetic
predispositions. Among those predispositions, lipid and lipoprotein disorders
occur particularly often.
5) The metabolic level is characterized by the direct relation between ascorbate
and virtually all risk factors of CVD known in clinical cardiology today.
Ascorbate deficiency leads to vasoconstriction and hemostasis, and, affects the
vascular wall metabolism in favor of promoting atherosclerogenesis.
6) The genetic level can be further characterized, in that, the more effective and
specific a certain genetic feature counteracted the increasing vascular
permeability in scurvy, the more advantageous it became during evolution and,
generally, the more frequently this genetic feature occurs today.
7) The deposition of alpha-lipoprotein [LP(a)] is the most effective, most
specific, and therefore, most frequent of these pathologic mechanisms of
atherosclerogenesis. LP(a) is preferentially deposited at vascular
predisposition sites. In chronic ascorbate deficiency, the accumulation of LP(a)
leads to the localized development of atherosclerotic plaques and predisposes to
myocardial infarction and stroke.
8) Another frequent inherited lipoprotein disorder is hypoalphalipoproteinemia. The
frequency of this disorder again reflects its usefulness during evolution. The
metabolic up-regulation of HDL synthesis by ascorbate became an important
mechanism to reverse and decrease oxidized lipid deposits in the vascular walls.
9) The vascular defense mechanisms associated with most genetic disorders are
nonspecific. These mechanisms can aggravate the development of atherosclerotic
plaques at vascular predisposition sites.
10) Other nonspecific mechanisms lead to
peripheral forms of atherosclerosis by causing a thickening of the vascular wall
throughout the arterial system. This peripheral form of vascular disease is
characteristic for angiopathology associated with diabetes, Type III
hyperlipidemia and many other inherited metabolic diseases.
11) Of particular advantage during evolution
and therefore particularly frequent today are those genetic features that
protect the ascorbate-deficient vascular wall until the end of the reproduction age. By favoring these disorders, nature decided for the
lesser of two evils: the death from CVD after the reproduction age rather than
death from scurvy at a much earlier age. This also explains the rapid increase
of the CVD mortality today from the 4th decade onwards.
12) After the loss of endogenous ascorbate
production in humans, the genetic mutation rate in our ancestors increased
significantly. This was an additional precondition favoring the advantage not
only of apolipoprotein A [APO(a)] and LP(a), but also of many other genetic
countermeasures associated with CVD.
13) Genetic predispositions are characterized
by the rate of ascorbate depletion in a multitude of metabolic reactions
specific for the genetic disorder. The overall rate of ascorbate depletion in an
individual is largely determined by the polygenic pattern of disorders. The
earlier the ascorbate reserves in the body are depleted without being
re-supplemented, the earlier CVD develops.
14) The genetic predispositions with the
highest probability for early clinical manifestation require the highest amount
of ascorbate supplementation in the diet to prevent CVD development. The amount
of ascorbate for patients at high risk should be comparable to the amount of
ascorbate our ancestors synthesized in their body before they lost this ability:
between 10,000 and 20,000 milligrams per day.
15) Optimum ascorbate supplementation prevents
the development of CVD independently of the individual predisposition or
pathomechanism. Ascorbate reduces existing atherosclerotic deposits, and,
thereby decreases the risk for myocardial infarction and stroke. Moreover,
ascorbate can prevent blindness and organ failure in diabetic patients,
thromboembolism in homocystinuric patients, and many other manifestations of
L-Lysine and L-Proline are essential, amino acid components of collagen, the
primary, structural protein of blood vessels and connective tissues. Their
supplementation helps to repair the vascular endothelial lining and maintain
structural integrity of blood vessels.
Lysyl Residues attract apolipoprotein(a), a known contributory factor to the
development of atherosclerotic plaque. Lipoprotein(a) [LP(a)] readily adheres to
these Lysyl Residues. Supplemental Lysine diverts LP(a) from adhering to the
Lysyl Residues in the vascular endothelium towards the Lysyl Residues contained
in "free" Lysine in the bloodstream, thereby helping inhibit
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient in the formation and maintenance of
healthy collagen. Magnesium ascorbate and potassium ascorbate provide essential
minerals for normal enzyme function, healthy cellular metabolism and relaxation
response of blood vessels.
Citrus bioflavonoids optimize the bioactivity of vitamin C (ascorbates) in
the body, and, enhance the strength and resiliency of collagen.
Vitamin K2 is the collective term for a group of bioactive, vitamin K
compounds called menaquinones. Vitamin K2 is the most biologically active form
of vitamin K. It is also the most beneficial form for bone health maximization.
Vitamin K2 (menatetrenone) can prevent fractures and sustains lumbar bone
mineral density in osteoporosis. Vitamin K2, combined with vitamin D and
calcium, has been used primarily as treatment or prevention of osteoporosis.
Vitamin K2 is essential for the carboxylation of glutamate residues in
certain proteins, to give carboxyglutamate. This modification allows the protein
to bind calcium, an essential event in the blood-clotting cascade. Carboxylation
of glutamate is also important in other proteins involved in the mobilization or
transport of calcium. Vitamin K2 is more effective than vitamin K1 with respect
to osteoclastogenesis. Likewise, hypocholesterolemic effects and the ability to
slow atherosclerotic progression have only been observed with vitamin K2. This
may be due in part to the geranylgeranyl side chain of vitamin K2, which is
thought to inhibit the mevalonate pathway, thus preventing the prenylation of
growth factors required for osteoclast activation in much the same way as
Menaquinone (Vitamin K2) helps to remove the abnormal, metastatic
calcification of the blood vessels and deposit the calcium into bone where it

For years I have been suffering with swollen legs and ankles and on a bus trip from Miami to Orlando, I thought I was going to die because of the pain in my legs. I called my "natural doctor" and he told me he was going to call a friend of his who happened to know a lot about my problem with the swollen legs. Let me tell you, within 5 days from taking your product, a miracle happened. I called my doctor to thank him and to thank his doctor friend for a "superior" product like Cardio Pro. I have taken many medicines and water retention pills, to no avail, but this one is the BEST THERE IS. I will recommend it to anyone who truly wants to alleviate their heavy, swollen legs.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
