High Desert Heart Institute Clinical Trial
In July of 2009, the High Desert Heart Institute concluded an exhaustive study of the effects of ProArgi9 on 33 congestive heart failure patients. These are patients who had reached the maximum medical management of their conditions and there was nothing further that could be done to help them. Each patient in the study was given 4 scoops a day of ProArgi9 Plus for 90 days.
It will be another six months to a year before this medical study will be published, but we have an interview with Angelo Cici, one of the patients in the study, Dan Austin, RN who worked with each patient in the study and Dr. Siva Arunasalam, the founder and Director of the High Desert Heart Institute.
"There was nothing else for us to try, we had tried everything with these patients. All patients showed a tremendous improvement in many, many objective data points that only can be attributed to ProArgi9."
Dr. Siva Arunasalam
Over the course of the 90 day study, each patient in the study got extensive diagnostic testing producing almost 7,000 points of data.
- Full blood panels, including fasting lipid and electrolytes,
- Full urine panels,
- 2 forms pulse wave analysis.
- C-Reactive Protein,
- Vitamin D3 levels,
- Ankle brachial index testing (ultra sound doppler)
- CT Heart Scan
Angelo Cici was a patient of the High Desert Heart Institute and part of the study. Angelo was a Director of Product Support at Litton Industries with 100 subsidiary companies. On Dec 20, 2008 Angelo had a massive heart failure with simultaneous renal failure, congestive heart failure, pulmonary heart failure and a pace maker failure. From this point on he was in and out of the emergency room.
"I was so weak I couldn't even open a bottle of water by myself and I had decided I had had enough. I told the nurses I wanted all the IVs removed and I just wanted to go home and die."
"I was never going more than 5 days without going back into the hospital emergency room until I started taking ProArgi9 plus... it's been 6 months since I've been into a hospital ... I feel like I'm 40 years old again."
Dan Austin is the RN in charge of every patient in this study. He saw firsthand the amazing results of ProArgi9 plus from the beginning to the end.
"I've been doing this type of work in critical care for well over 20 years and you see what congestive heart failure does. I have seen a dramatic reversal in Angelo's symptoms."
Dr. Siva Arunasalam, is the founder and attending Cardiologist at the Heart Institute of the Hiqh Desert in Victorville, California. Curriculum Vitae The High Desert Heart Institute provides primary care and heart disease services to patients in the Victor Valley and all surrounding areas. "We strongly believe that many patients can be just as effectively treated in the outpatient setting as in the hospital."
As an outpatient center, we provide all of the routine heart tests such as electrocardiography, Holter monitoring, event monitoring, and routine blood testing. But we also provide a variety of advanced diagnostic and therapeutic methods.
We have in-house echocardiography, vascular ultrasound, nuclear stress testing, pulmonary function testing and a variety of other important diagnostic modalities. We are also very pleased to be the first outpatient center in the High Desert providing EECP (Enhanced External CounterPulsation) - an important therapy that can help patients with angina and heart failure.
"There was nothing else for us to try, we had tried everything with these patients. All patients showed a tremendous improvement in many, many objective data points that only can be attributed to ProArgi9".
Here are the results of the study by category:
- 18% increase in HDL Cholesterol
- 40% decrease in triglycerides
- 8% Glucose reduction
- 25% decrease in c-reactive proteins
- 11% reduction in creatine levels
- 35% increase in magnesium levels (even though there is no magnesium in the product) magnesium is very important in improving heart health
- Decreases in platelets in the blood
- Albumin decreased by 70%
- Bilirubin decreased significantly
- Vitamin D levels increased by 183%
- Systolic BP decreased by 13%
- Diastolic BP decreased by 17%
- Peripheral blood flow increased to the feet (an ankle reading) by 16%
- CASP (Central Aortic Systolic Pressure) decreased by 6%
- Pulmonary Hypertension dramatically improved
- Quality of life measurements significantly improved for all participants
This information is life changing and irrefutable based upon the results at the High Dessert Heart Institute. These results will be released to the general public soon. For now we have the tools that have proven to be very successful including but not limited to the Nobel Prize information with Dr Ignarro , Dr. Cooke, Dr. Joe, and now Dr. Siva.
We have 70,000 articles on the effects and benefits of nitric oxide.

The Heart Institute of the High Desert was started in 1996 with the arrival of Dr. Siva Arunasalam to the Victor Valley.
Having completed his cardiology training at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, he was recruited by St. Mary Regional Medical Center to bring advanced cardiac technoloqy to the High Desert. Initially in a small office near the hospital, the Institute had explosive growth requiring a move, to a larger facility. The present facility on Hesperia Road has served very well, but because of continued growth, we are building a much larger building farther North on Hesperia that will allow better service and care of patients, and also allow our patients access to more specialists.
