A healthy sex life starts with your arteries

Last week, we reviewed some of the key cornerstones of male sexual health. This week, we’re going to take a closer look at one element in particular: your heart.


What’s the connection? Well, sexual function is always a barometer for overall health. This is especially true where your cardiovascular health is concerned. And arterial health is the tie that binds the two together, with the help of one vitally important compound…


The power of NO  


Nitric oxide (NO) originates in your endothelium—that is, the lining of your blood vessels. It’s responsible for widening and dilating your arteries.


Without enough NO, those arteries don’t expand as they normally would. This has a direct impact on blood pressure and vascular health, which can lead to problems affecting your heart, your brain, and your penis.  


Nitric oxide opens the arteries in your penis so that blood can flow in and create an erection. And since erections depend on healthy arteries, an erect penis a great marker of a healthy cardiovascular system.


That’s why one of the most effective ways to guarantee reliable erections is to resolve endothelial dysfunction. And one of the main markers of endothelial health is abundant NO production.


So how can you increase your body’s NO production? Well, one strategy is to boost your levels of an amino acid called L-arginine, which is an essential ingredient in your body’s production of NO. But there’s one caveat you have to keep in mind…


Look to L-citrulline for support


While L-arginine is critical to NO secretion, your body metabolizes it far too fast for supplements to offer effective support. Luckily, there is a simple way around that problem: Try taking L-citrulline instead.


L-citrulline is a precursor to L-arginine. It’s less vulnerable to rapid intestinal and liver metabolism and your kidneys easily convert it into its more active cousin.


Research has investigated whether it’s better to take L-citrulline or L-arginine, and the results here are clear. L-Citrulline increases NO and L-arginine levels in the blood and the tissues better than taking L-arginine alone.


For being a “non-essential” amino acid, L-citrulline has some critical benefits—including an increased ability to get and maintain an erection. But this compound is a game-changer for anyone looking to level up their cardiovascular health—whether the goal is to balance blood pressure or keep arteries flowing free and clear.  


The bottom line? L-citrulline is a staple ingredient in our male sexual health formula, XYVGGR, for a reason. Dr. Geo designed this formula to enhance sexual arousal, performance, and satisfaction… safely, naturally, and effectively. And with Valentine’s Day just days away, there’s no better time to stock up.


Until next time,
