The High Cost of Hypertension and High Blood Pressure

Americans Spend over $117 Billion a Year on Health Care Related Costs
April 23, 2012 - PRLog -- According to the Center for Science and Public Interest, 65 million American adults have hypertension, over 45 million have “prehypertension,” or a blood pressure that is above normal, and over 90 million will be diagnosed with hypertension over the next few years. These stark statistics support the overwhelming amount of Americans currently taking prescription medication to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, instead of using all-natural supplements such as L-arginine.

All-natural supplements that contain L-arginine, like Cardio Juvenate Plus at, are getting the attention of some very lucky individuals.

“I had heart trouble that started in 2001, I had high blood pressure that was running in the 180′s over 90′s. Since I’ve been taking Cardio~Juvenate+ my blood pressure has come down to normal… down to 123/73 most of the time, and I’m doing that without the blood pressure medication that destroyed my kidneys,” Shirly F. said of Tempe, Arizona.  “I was on that for 5 years, and I’m completely off of that and I’m so grateful for what Cardio~Juvenate+ has done. “

In April of 2011, WebMD published a report regarding the ‘most-prescribed’ drugs in the U.S. Of those, Generic Zocor, a cholesterol-lowering statin, Lisinopril, a blood pressure drug, and Generic Norvasc, another blood pressure durg were numbers two, three and five on the list.

L-arginine is an all-natural supplement that has been clinically proven to lower blood pressure by increasing dilation within the arteries, thus decreasing a person’s risk for heart attack or stroke. While expensive statins ‘trick’ the brain into believing the problem (aka high blood pressure) has been solved, all-natural supplements like L-arginine actually lower blood pressure through vasodilation.

Unlike all-natural solutions like L-arginine supplements, prescription medication leaves the patient at risk of dependency and a lethargy to making the necessary lifestyle changes that can improve overall health and well being.  While arginine is derived from the earth, hypertension medical such as beta blockers and diuretics are made from a ‘beta-adrenergic blocking substance’ that ‘blocks the effects of a hormone called epinephrine in the body, also known as adrenaline. The beta blockers basically block the beta receptors, which are protein molecules that process messages sent out by the nervous system. Beta blockers also help to widen blood vessels, just as l-arginine supplements do, to reduce blood pressure.
