ProArgi-9 Plus – L-arginine Complex

ProArgi-9 Plus is Synergy’s top selling product and the cornerstone of any nutritional regimen. One serving contains 5,000 mg (5 grams) of elemental pharmaceutical grade l-arginine. Often referred to as the ‘miracle molecule’, l-arginine has potent health-enhancing properties. High Desert Heart Institute found very compelling positive results including the potential to reverse heart disease!  See the full results here. There are also many medical publications that have documented the benefits of l-arginine use.  Click here to read more.

L-arginine benefits the body in a myriad of ways. It stimulates the production of nitric oxide in the body….to promote anti-aging properties, sports performance, enhance sexual performance, and boost the immune system. We can’t ignore the power of arginine any longer!
– Dr. Joe Predergast

ProArgi-9 Plus was formulated in collaboration with leading l-arginine researchers such as Dr. Joe Joseph Prendergast and other cardiovascular specialists who have conducted pioneering research in the proper application of l-arginine in promoting cardiovascular health. These experts have helped create the best l-arginine product on the market.

L-arginine is best known for its cardiovascular benefits. In the body, l-arginine is converted to nitric oxide, which relaxes the blood vessels. This reduces stress on the heart and improves circulation. L-arginine is the body’s major source for nitric oxide synthesis. Without nitric oxide, human life would not be possible. L-arginine also reduces blood viscosity. Scientific studies have shown that l-arginine significantly reduces blood pressure levels.

L-arginine also enhances health in a number of other ways. It improves immune function, stimulates the release of human growth hormone (HGH), may boost energy levels, helps to build muscle, and reduces adipose tissue body fat.

ProArgi-9 Plus is a unique product with far-reaching health benefits and powerful support for the cardiovascular system. With ProArgi-9 Plus, you’re giving your body the support necessary for a long, healthy life.

ProArgi-9 Plus now comes in 3 flavors: Citrus Berry, Mixed Berry and Grape.  All have the same powerful active ingredients but have different forms of sweetening, like monk fruit or Xylitol (label information below).


Benefits


  • Supports cardiovascular health
  • Enhances blood flow to vital organs
  • Combats the negative effects of premature cardiovascular aging
  • Sweetened with Xylitol to enhance oral health
  • May aid in decreasing body fat
  • Anti-aging benefits
  • Stimulates the natural production of HGH (human growth hormone)
  • Maintains healthy blood sugar levels already in normal range

Formulation



Joe Joseph Prendergast, MD, is a distinguished certified physician whose advanced research and experience has contributed significantly to Synergy as well as to the medical and scientific fields as a whole. In addition to his role as a practicing physician for over 35 years, Dr. Joe is an accomplished scientist, researcher, and humanist. His research regarding l-arginine contributed to the development of Synergy’s signature product, ProArgi-9 Plus.

Since 1991, Dr. Joe has been personally using l-arginine and recommending it to his patients. He has become an expert on the many properties and benefits of this amino acid and he understands l-arginine’s essential role in maintaining vital heart health. “L-arginine benefits the body in a myriad of ways,” explains Dr. Joe. “It stimulates the production of nitric oxide in the body, which dilates the blood vessels and helps them relax and restore elasticity. L-arginine is also important in cell division, immunity, and the secretion of hormones. We have now learned more about how l-arginine uses the two natural pathways into the brain to promote anti-aging properties, sports performance, enhance sexual performance, and boost the immune system. We can’t ignore the power of arginine any longer!”

Ingredients


L-arginine
L-arginine is a vital amino acid that plays a role in a number of physiological functions in the body, but is best known for its cardiovascular benefits. In the body, l-arginine is converted to nitric oxide, which relaxes the blood vessels and regulates blood vessel tone and flexibility. This reduces stress on the heart, improves circulation, and lowers blood pressure.

Citrulline
The amino acid citrulline is metabolized to yield more l-arginine, which in turn provides additional nitric oxide. Citrulline helps to optimize blood flow throughout the body and promote healthy energy levels.

Folic Acid, Vitamins B6 and B12
These ingredients work together to naturally decrease homocysteine levels.

Red wine extract (Resveratrol)
This ingredient is high in antioxidants, anthocyanins, and polyphenols, which help protect the heart and reduce LDL oxidation.

Pomegranate
Pomegranate contains superior antioxidants, known as punicalagins and ellagic acid. Pomegranate may inhibit LDL oxidation, support arterial wall strength, and enhance the activity of eNOS, the enzyme responsible for converting l-arginine to nitric oxide.

Vitamin K2
This vitamin keeps calcium in the bones and out of the arteries.

Vitamin D3
This vitamin has long been known to aid in calcium absorption, but new research shows that D3 also plays a role in healthy cardiovascular function and supports healthy inflammatory response.

Ribose Ribose is a naturally occurring sugar that has been extensively studied for its ability to enhance the recovery of energy compounds in heart cells.

Xylitol
This ingredient is a low glycemic sweetener that occurs naturally in the body. Unlike other sweeteners, xylitol has been shown to provide protection against tooth decay.

Mairead,

Some people have sensitivity the sucralose like you. The Mixed Berry and Grape flavors have alternative sweeteners in them. Give them a try.

I have early Parkinsons what dose do you recommend?

Reply

HTM Admin March 7, 2013 at 3:39 pm

Michelle,

Parkinsons has more to do with dopamine levels than HGH. Although ProArgi-9+ may assist you some way, I’m not aware of it doing anything specific for this condition.

We just started this one week ago so how long does it take to notice any changes?

Individual results times are varied from what I’ve heard directly from various experts including Dr. Prendergast. The conditions, dosage and bodies ability to tackle them vary so much that there is no set expectation. I would say though that if you are not seeing ANY results or change (even minor) on a 10+g/daily dosage (2 scoops) in 60-90 days then you likely need a larger dosage. Our product is guaranteed for 120 days for this reason. We want you to have results.

Can I use both products proargi-9 and core greens mix together?
And can I mix with juice for easy to swallow?
Thanks

Timothy,

Thanks for you question. Yes you can mix with juice and take your core greens with it safely. I do that regularly. Although if you are looking for the HGH production benefits and are following that protocol (click here for details), it is recommended that you take ProArgi-9 alone on an empty stomach immediately before bed. For daytime regimens, taking with other items is fine. However with the flavorings of the ProAgri-9 being what they are you may find that adding it to a sweet juice may make it overly sweet. I personally like it by itself with water. Although I do not add but maybe 4oz of water. Any more makes it taste diluted to me. But, that’s my preference, not a requirement for effectiveness.

I HAVE SERONEGATIVE INFLAMMATORY ARTHRITIS WHICH IS AN AUTO IMMUNE DISEASE WHERE THE IMMUNE SYSTEM IS HYPER ACTIVE. YOUR PRODUCT INFO SAYS IT WILL BOOST THE IMMUNE SYSTEM. WOULD THIS MAKE MY DISEASE WORSE? I HAVE BEEN TAKING IT AND BELIEVE IT HELPS. PLEASE ADVISE.

Sue,

Thanks for you question. As with all conditions please work with your doctor, especially if you are on any medications. What I can tell you is we have had several customers who have had good results with Proargi-9+ and arthritis. I can tell you that it is my personal experience that when combating a particular condition that increasing dosage up to 4 scoops a day can have a better impact. This is the dosage that was used in the High Desert Heart Institute study featured on our site. Please keep us posted. We would love to hear how things go.

Barb,
I use about 4 oz of dilute ( 50% water) Welch’s 100% grape juice, dump in the single scoop, wait till dissolves, drops to bottom and mix vigorously. While doing so, I add another 2-4 oz water….the taste of the pomegranate is masked pretty well.

Is ProArgi-9 Plus available in a capsule? I think putting it in water has a horrible taste. Thanks.

Barb,

I’m sorry it is not currently in pill form. There are now 4 flavors to try, Citrus Berrry, Mixed Berry, Grape and Active (in the cart soon). The citrus berry is quite pleasant I think. The mixed berry flavor is not sweet enough for my liking. If you are not particularly concerned about a little more sweet in your drink , then give the Citrus Berry a try. I even mix it a little thick (less water) to intensify the flavor. If you made your purchase in the last 90-days you can easily do a return/exchange through customer service.

Is this something I must take forever or can it be discontinued when health has improved ?

Reply

Wilva,

Thanks for your question. As with an nutritional supplement you can discontinue use at your discretion. However, health is something to be maintained not simply to be done when there is an issue to combat. Good nutrition and exercise are always the best medicine. Supplement such as ProArgi-9 Plus are just that: supplements to your maintain your health. Supplements should never replace a healthy regimen but compliment it.
