I am a Chiropractor in Australia. I think the individual components in the formula for this product are great. There is a problem though with the advertising. A big deal is made of the fact that ProArgi9 is in the Physician’s Desk Reference. That book (PDR) is a commercial enterprise. It is full of paid advertisements. The listing in the PDR for ProArgi9 was paid for and written by someone who has nothing to do with the PDR. Also, it is touted by Daniel Hammer on his website that ProArgi 9 is the ‘gold standard’. He shows no scientific data to support this claim. Nothing can be ‘gold standard’ without rigorous scientific testing. Beware of all advertising. It is just to sell a product.

Dr. Wiggins, you brought out a good point but at the time of your writing I was not able to share this new information yet. I am proud to share with you now that ProArgi-9+ is being evaluated at the Hughes Center for Research and Innovation. The purpose is to study the effectiveness of the product claims. You can read more about it here:

Before I started taking Proargi 9 plus 4 years ago I was always in pain. Although I didn’t have anything serious like autoimmune disease or cancer I always had discomfort from pain of one type or another. Headaches, fibromyalgia, and then I got high blood pressure. None of the medications for BP worked for me. Too many side effects, ie. swollen ankles, itching in my ears, feet, and hand. I couldn’t have a shower without it being triggered off from the heat. Hair falling out and just a feeling of being unwell all the time with no energy. Done some research on the internet and discovered Proargi 9 plus and to make a long story short I got it and haven’t looked back. I am 54 and I have never had a menopausal symptom either. My understanding is Proargi 9 plus activates the pituitary gland to release HGH.This stops working in our late 20’s.It has a signalling molecule which travels around the body signalling to all other cells what to do. It sounds strange but this is why this discovery won the Nobel Prize in medicine. I have no more health problems. I am just a customer who buys it and has it delivered to my door each month.My common sense prevailed because I knew prescribed medication was toxic to my system and one pill was leading to another. It costs me 124.15 euro pm for 3 x tubs and it is money well spent. That allows me take one scoop 3 x times a day. Someone said to me they thought it was too expensive. It costs buttons for the benefits you get. No more expensive visits to the doctor and no more expensive medication. Now that’s expensive and a waste of money. What price do you put on your health? However there will always be people out there that know the PRICE of everything and the VALUE of nothing.

Articles I have read all agree that if you are over the age of 40, ProArginine cannot be absorbed into your system. I am 83. Please comment on this.


HTM Admin September 29, 2014 at 9:09 am


I’m not sure where you are getting your information but it is patently false. Studies performed both in the US and Europe in leading heart care clinics have shown repeatedly that l-arginine can in fact be used to increase the production of Nitric Oxide. This type of research was awarded a Nobel Prize in Medicine.

We are so sure that our product does what it claims that we offer an UNCONDITIONAL 120-day money back guarantee. Simply try it for yourself and see.

In fact we have a particular custom the started on ProArgi-9+ at age 90. At the time her cardiovascular age (determined by B-Pro testing) was 93. After 3 years and now an actual 93 years old and taking just 1 scoop per day (only 1/2 of the recommended dose) her cardiovascular age now tests at age 33!

I have been reading about your product. The articles all warn people that are over the age of 40 that Proargine Plus will not be effective. I am 83 and wish you would comment on this.

I have been taking Proargi9 plus V3 system for 2 plus years now. I have very small arteries which have had issues for me by clogging up causing me to have two different bypass operations and a number of other procedures including 3 stents. Then I discovered Proargi9 plus and thought anything which had the slightest chance to make me any better at all was well worth a try. I had nothing to lose. I had it sent to me per month to my door so that was easy . The promise had been take it for 3 months and if not satisfied you get your money back. Almost immediately after I started to take it I felt some difference. My weak heart which all doctors and nurses complained they could not hear with a stethoscope was almost immediately letting me know it was strengthening and I could hear it beat when I lied down. This was not happening beforehand. I had great faith this was going to work. It seemed right somehow and made sense when I read its benefits. Now after taking it for 2 and half years I have had three Dopler tests on my neck and the result now is that a promised stent for my left Carotid Artery is now never going to happen. An operation was done to clean the Left carotid out as it was 80% blocked. This was successful but caused the vessel to narrow because of scar tissue. Doctors then decided a stent would have to follow because of fatty rubbish collecting and with such a narrow section in the vessel it was again dangerous. Now I have had three Dopler tests the first being to check just how blocked it was at that time . last October. The Vascular surgeon rang me to tell me the stent was not going to be necessary because of the improvement with less rubbish there than before. I had though meantime been booked in for supposed stent to the Cardiologist at same hospital in following January,, this year. I knew the outcome of that meeting with another Dopler test showing even less plaque than before and the Cardiologist told me to “go home you are dodging bullets .. for now but you will still need a stent later on. I said to him “we will see!”.Now in July I had athirst Dopler now showing even less plaque in the vessels and the result of that being that I was told I would never need a stent there now as the problem of catching rubbish in the narrowed vessel was gone as the vessel was clear. Now if this is not proof of how fabulous Proargi 9 is then what could be ??

I’m sorry I don’t understand your comment or question.


andrew July 1, 2015 at 1:07 am

Please keep negative comments to yourself. We are here seeking help mr. Dyke. With the way everything is going here in our country, the one thing that we don’t need is a nay sayer.
