Pulmona™


Pulmona™ for Pulmonary Function Managment





Pulmona™ is a Medical Food formulated for the management of pulmonary artery pressure in the presence of pulmonary hypertension and to reduce bronchospasm in the presence of asthma. Pulmona™ helps to promote nitric oxide in the
bronchi and the pulmonary arteries.

Distinctive Nutritional Requirements


Patients with pulmonary hypertension and asthma may have nutritional deficiencies of arginine, choline, and certain antioxidants. Patients with pulmonary hypertension and asthma frequently exhibit reduced plasma levels of arginine. Patients with pulmonary hypertension and asthma respond to oral administration of arginine. Arginine reduced diets result in a fall of circulating arginine. Patients with pulmonary hypertension and asthma have activation of the arginase pathway that diverts arginine from production of nitric oxide to production of deleterious nitrogen molecules such as peroxynitrite thus leading to a reduced production of nitric oxide for a given arginine blood level. Supplementation with antioxidants and arginine can restore the production of beneficial nitric oxide.

Pulmona™ Ingredients


L-Arginine, L-Glutamine, L-Histidine, L-Cysteine, Choline, Grape Seed Extract, Ginkgo Biloba, Cocoa Extract, Cinnamon, Caffeine, Dextrose. Supplied in 120 capsule bottles. 12 bottles per case. NDC # 68405-1005-03

Pulmona™is a Medical Food formulated to provide specific dietary management of bronchoconstriction. Pulmona™ is designed to produce the neurotransmitters nitric oxide and acetylcholine. Nitric oxide is the neurotransmitter that initiates dilatation of the pulmonary arteries in the presence of pulmonary hypertension and dilates the bronchi in the presence of bronchoconstriction. Acetylcholine is the neurotransmitter that facilitates the action of nitric oxide on the pulmonary arteries and bronchi.

Pulmona™ is designed to provide the nitric oxide precursor arginine and the acetylcholine precursor choline to enhance the production of the nitric oxide and acetylcholine neurotransmitters in the lung.

Do not take Pulmona™ with food.

Pulmona™ should be taken with water on an empty stomach at least 30 minutes before or after eating.

Dosing is variable depending on the condition to be treated.

Two (2) or three (3) capsules three or more times per day depending on the clinical response.

Side Effects: The side effect profile of Pulmona™ is comparable to the rate of food intolerance in the general population. The ingredient components ofPulmona™ are derived from nutrient based compounds found in the normal food chain. Occasional reports of slight nausea have been reported when beginning therapy. Dose titration may be needed initially. Pulmona™ should not be taken by patients taking MAO inhibitors.
