Qivana PRIME Nitric Oxide Activator
The new PRIME Nitric Oxide Activator is a cutting-edge nutritional supplement, with nearly a decade of research investment. It is scientifically designed with a completely unique and improved method for restoring Nitric Oxide back to optimal levels in adult men and women.
Nitric Oxide is a gaseous molecule that plays a critical role in cell signaling, and has serious consequences on the health of the cardiovascular system and many other physiological processes. It’s documented that the human body produces less Nitric Oxide with age; a typical 40-year old adult creates approximately 50 percent less Nitric Oxide than a healthy 20-year-old.
Scientific evidence suggests that increasing Nitric Oxide production may improve cardiovascular health by facilitating highly specific circulatory system processes, including vasodilation. The PRIME Nitric Oxide Activator contains several Nitric Oxide precursors, oral probiotics and other phytochemicals designed to improve and optimize endogenous Nitric Oxide production.
PRIME also comes with a novel Instant Indicator that gives accurate measurements of total body Nitric Oxide availability based on a saliva sample. PRIME provides the tools needed to improve cardiovascular health and overall well being.
Nitric Oxide Production Declines With Age
Nitric Oxide Public Health Relevance
Approximately 17.3 million people died from cardiovascular disease in 2008, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Cardiovascular disease accounted for 30 percent of all deaths worldwide. Rising levels of obesity, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and other chronic illnesses are a growing public health concern.
These chronic diseases are significant risk factors for later cardiovascular disease. The WHO estimates that cardiovascular disease will become the leading cause of death by 2030, contributing to 23.6 million deaths worldwide.
In addition to reducing longevity, cardiovascular disease causes significant public health burdens. Individuals with cardiovascular disease experience increased functional disability, utilize primary care and hospital resources more frequently, use more prescription medications, and often require rehabilitation services. In 2008, the total cost of cardiovascular disease and stroke in the United States was $297.7 billion, according to a 2012 report from the American Heart Association.
Growing awareness of the serious medical and financial burden of cardiovascular health has generated interest in biological mechanisms and pharmaceutical interventions that can lower cardiovascular risk. Nitric Oxide (NO), sometimes known, as nitrogen monoxide has emerged as a compound of interest in improving overall cardiovascular functioning as well as benefiting other body systems.
Nitric Oxide is a cell-signaling molecule that is implicated in a host of physiological processes including blood circulation, memory, cognitive functioning, neurotransmission, gastrointestinal processes, gene regulation and delivery of nutrients to cells.
Because of the varied effects of NO, dysregulation of the Nitric Oxide signaling pathway is implicated in several health conditions including memory and cognition disorders, sexual dysfunction, autoimmune disorders and nearly all cardiovascular risk factors.
Although NO has a recognized role in a variety of physiological processes, it is perhaps best known as a molecule beneficial to cardiovascular health. In 1992, the American Association for the Advancement of Science proclaimed NO the “Molecule of the Year” for its role as a biological messenger with beneficial effects on the cardiovascular system.
NO has been demonstrated to improve circulation, facilitate efficient delivery of oxygen and nutrients to cells, dilate arteries and support healthy blood pressure already within a normal range*. The PRIME Nitric Oxide Activator facilitates natural NO production pathways in the body by providing the best raw materials by which the body can synthesize Nitric Oxide.
It does this by providing the body with several Nitric Oxide precursors and compounds proven to efficiently and effectively convert to NO in the body. This product increases the body’s natural production of this beneficial molecule.
Although scientists have found NO to be a potent activator of circulatory processes, the general population remains uninformed of the potential benefits of this molecule. In a 2003 survey conducted by NFO Plog Research Inc., researchers found that less than 1 percent of individuals correctly identified Nitric Oxide as a compound that benefits blood circulation.
Nearly one-fourth of respondents confused Nitric Oxide with laughing gas, or nitrous oxide. As scientific research about the benefits of Nitric Oxide continues to accumulate, it is important for scientists and health professionals to disseminate this crucial information to the public.
