The Top 6 L-arginine Health Benefits

Posted on April 9th, 2010 by admin  |  11 Comments »

L-arginine is a semi-essential amino acid which plays an important role in many bodily functions. L-arginine is particularly important in keeping your blood vessels relaxed to promote optimal blood flow.* It can be found in almonds, carob, chocolate, coconuts, dairy products, fish, meat, peanuts, and walnuts.

Your endothelial cells produce nitric oxide to help keep your blood vessels relaxed, thus enhancing your circulation.* “Nitric oxide is also used as a signal molecule in your brain and immune system,” natural health expert Joseph Mercola explains. Your body needs L-arginine to produce nitric oxide. In fact, it is the only known nutritional substrate in your vessel lining available to endothelial cells for the production of nitric oxide.

You can produce this amino acid in your body, but not enough of it for you to fully utilize it. You could be deficient in L-arginine if you don’t eat and digest enough protein and are prone to lower levels of antioxidants and higher levels of free radicals. Some people may need more L-arginine due to inherited genetics or simply because they are getting older.

Here are the 6 main reasons why you need L-arginine:*

1.       Helps promote a healthy heart and enhances your cardiovascular system by relaxing your blood vessels to ensure optimal blood flow.* It also helps maintain blood pressure levels in the normal range.*

2.       Helps support your immune system.*

3.       Helps enhance men’s sexual health. L-arginine helps increase blood flow to the penis, helps boost sperm count and maintains a healthy volume of semen.*

4.       Helps keep your skin healthy.* L-arginine is a component of collagen, the protein which gives your skin its elasticity and structure, and the appearance of smoothness and youth.*

5.       Helps promote healthy kidney function.* Studies show that L-arginine helps enhance renal function.*

6.        Helps boost your exercise tolerance.* L-arginine may help reduce the accumulation of ammonia and plasma lactate, which are byproducts of physical exercise.*

L-arginine supplements are readily available in the market. The challenge when taking an L-arginine supplement is its absorption rate. “Your body absorbs and metabolizes L-arginine very rapidly – meaning you normally have to take an L-arginine supplement several times during the day,” Dr. Mercola points out.

To solve this problem, Mercola recommends Cardiovascular Support, a natural L-arginine supplement which uses a unique time release matrix that allows you to get a sustained-release of optimal levels of L-arginine during the day, eliminating the need to take frequent doses.*

Besides L-arginine, CoQ10 and omega-3 fats are also friendly to your heart.* Cardiovascular Support and quality CoQ10 and omega-3 fat supplements, will provide your heart with the much-needed support that it deserves.*

    Arginine seems to enhance muscle tone a little bit. I take it as part if the Max Powers 'Anabolic Stack' and it Definite increases power when combined with those other ingredients in the stack. it is extremely obvious that it does relax blood vessels because my.. um.. thing.. becomes more vascular consistantally when taking this product. I googled this effect and found out than many male enhancement products contain around 2000 mg of L- arginine a day. Other facts -It is believed to increase levels of HGH or human growth hormone -help make more nitric oxide which relaxes blood vessels. +this may also help men sexually -supports protein synthesis as it is involved in the transport and storage of nitrogen -Never use after a heart attack +A study was conducted on taking this product after a heart attack and 6 people died. None of the placebo group died.I wouldnt just take arginine by itself – definite take it as part if the stack – my favorite is the Dr Max Powers anabolic stack – been using it for 3 years now…..

    Promises included increasing the efficiency of distribution,
    disintermediation, reducing marketing and procurement costs, and decreasing
    errors in data distribution. You should aim for about forty-five to 60 minutes
    every cardiovascular training, three times a week. So that first common carp meant so
    much, particularly as it was not a balanced crust
    and paste bait that tempted that fish as in walker.

    are so many options out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any recommendations? Thank you!
