      Agreed about the food. I just found out that L-Argininie, an amino acid and how it helps with cardiovascular health. I started taking it after learning I have the cardiovascular system of someone 20 older! It explains my skipped heartbeats, flutters, and varicose veins. This is something that the cardiologist had no explanation or suggestions for a remedy for me. Nice blog!
