Will taking amino acids orally dissolve plaque in arteries

Customer Question

Will taking amino acids orally dissolve plaque in arteries & veins

Amino acids such as arginine and glycine are associated with a decrease in cholesterol. Thus these amino acids may help in long term in atherosclerosis as they prevent the progression of disease. Please read the research study;


Here is another study which mentions that arginine decreases the serum cholesterol;


So amino acids can help in preventing formation of plaques, but dissolution of plaques by amino acids can occur or not has not been established.


Please feel free for your follow up questions.

Please advise whether or not an independent study has indicated that established plaque located within arteries has (by oral chelation process) been dissolved from the taking of formulated amino acids e.g. CardioRenew, and/or Cardioprim? Not, just preventing plaque buildup, but the actual removal of plaque from clogged arteries? Or do results only exist by testimonial reports?
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 6 years ago.



No. There are no studies which had documented the already existing plaque removal by the amino acids (CardioRenew / Cardioprim).


It is pleasure and privilege assisting you.
