Can Arginine Prevent Hair Loss?

Thursday, June 19, 2014 9:03:50 AM America/Chicago

Can Arginine Prevent Hair Loss?


Despite the many benefits of arginine, preventing hair loss is not a proven one, according to Dr. Ray Sahelian, a specialist in natural supplements.

 

While many creams containing the semi-essential amino acid promote its helpfulness in preventing and slowing down hair loss, this is simply not the case.

 

In fact, as told by Sahelian, no studies have ever been published supporting the claim that arginine cream is effective as a hair loss treatment.

 

Here’s where it gets a bit tricky on whether arginine can help prevent hair loss. Some of the signs of an arginine deficiency include constipation, rashes, slow wound healing and hair loss. However, from a scientific point of view, the argument that “decreased blood flow causing male pattern balding and of minoxidil restoring hair growth through increased dilation of blood vessels is too simplistic.” So, just because hair loss is often attributed to poor circulation, arginine likely won’t help prevent it, despite the assumption that an arginine cream could help increase circulation and thus restoring hair growth.

 

What are some benefits of arginine?


Despite its inability to help with hair loss, according to the Mayo Clinic, the amino acid may be beneficial in treating certain health conditions including angina, congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, vascular disease, erectile dysfunction, among others.

 

What’s more, arginine not only assists in changing ammonia in the body to urea to be eliminated as waste, but it’s also needed to produce creatine, a substance that your muscles benefit from. Arginine can also aid in healing wounds, bodybuilding and increasing sperm production.

 

So while it’s quite questionable whether arginine is helpful in preventing hair loss, the amino acid is beneficial in many other ways – in natural and supplemental forms.

Study Shows Arginine can Improve Heart Health

Wednesday, May 7, 2014 9:51:40 AM America/Chicago

Sante Global’s Arginine Infusion is a nutritional supplement that’s becoming well known for people who want to improve their heart health. Arginine Infusion supplies the body with arginine, an amino acid that seems to benefit those dealing with, or—better yet— wanting to prevent, heart disease.

In a recent study published in the Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology, large artery elasticity was found to occur in patients who took arginine compared to those who used a placebo. Furthermore, systematic vascular resistance was found to be significantly lower in patients using arginine.

The study also concluded that arginine helped decrease people’s systolic blood pressure, peripheral vascular resistance, and aldosterone levels.

Arginine helps the lining in your blood vessels create nitric oxide, which then increases the vessels’ flexibility and dilation. In essence, arginine helps people’s blood flow better throughout their cardiovascular system. If the blood’s not flowing properly, people are left to deal with all sorts of maladies.

 

Far too many Americans have been dying from heart attacks in the past couple years, and many people today suffer from problems such as clogged arteries, coronary artery disease, and chest pain. Their blood is not able to flow as it should.

Arginine, therefore, comes in handy by promoting proper blood pressure levels as well as “endothelial vascular function.”

 

Those with high blood pressure, excess weight or diabetes need to be careful regarding what they eat—they’re more likely to develop heart disease if they don’t take precautions in dealing with their bodies properly.

 

Sante Global’s Arginine Infusion is a convenient way to ingest arginine to help your blood flow and overall heart health.

Studies have shown that l-arginine enhances health in many ways. As such, Sante Global manufactures Arginine Infusion, a supplement for l’arginine for customers with a variety of needs.   Notably, we are pleased to announce our supplement now contains AstraGin and CoQ10, which makes it a more complete and more easily absorbed supplement.

It also helps to repair compromised or damaged intestinal lining, thus aiding in your digestion as well. Astra Gin is composed of highly purified Panax Notoginseng, which is a form of adaptogenic, and astragalus, an herb that has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for thousands of years. Astragalus has been shown to enhance the immune system, to be good for heart health, and more recently it has been used as a basis for anti-cancer treatments. Astragalus has been used as an anti-aging supplement and also helps with fatigue. AstraGin is formulated using a pharmaceutical grade extraction and processing technology available only at NuLive Science, patent pending.

 

CoQ10 has been shown to aid in heart health, helps to keep your gums healthy, and assists with Type 2 Diabetes.

It can be found in such foods as organ meats (kidney, heart, and liver), soybean oil, mackerel, beef, and peanuts. However, its most concentrated form is in a supplement.

 

L-arginine with AstraGin and CoQ10 can provide you with a wealth of benefits, and assist in the amino acid’s absorption. That means it is more efficiently used in the body, and its benefits are more potent.

L-arginine: Good for Cholesterol

Friday, April 25, 2014 9:09:59 AM America/Chicago

L-arginine, an amino acid that is produced in the body as well as found in foods such as dairy, nuts, soybeans, seafood, chocolate, pork and poultry, has been shown to be helpful in controlling heart disease, assisting the immune system, and aiding in controlling cholesterol with higher doses than the body can produce. This makes it invaluable to many people who deal with these issues.

 

Also thought to be good for healing wounds more quickly, l-arginine has been shown to lower LDL levels(bad cholesterol) and your overall cholesterol levels. There is also some evidence that l-arginine may be useful in increasing good cholesterol, or HDL levels.

 

Having high cholesterol increases plaque in the arteries which can lead to atherosclerosis, and that puts you at higher risk for heart disease, heart attack, and stroke. Genetics can be a factor in high cholesterol levels, but so can being inactive, having diabetes, obesity, and consuming foods high in saturated fats and cholesterol.

 

So controlling your cholesterol  levels is essential for good health. The fact that l-arginine can help control your cholesterol levels, makes it an essential supplement for wellness. The recommended dosage of l-arginine is between 3 and 6 grams a day. Check with your doctor before taking any over-the-counter supplements, as there are some contraindications to l-arginine.

 

L-arginine has helped many people with controlling their cholesterol. And if you suffer from high cholesterol levels - particularly if your LDL levels are high - l-arginine can help you. Don’t think that just cutting down on saturated fats and walking every day will fix high cholesterol. If you are genetically predisposed to having high cholesterol, a supplement may be necessary to bring your levels down. Do your research and talk to your doctor. The more information you have, the healthier you can be.

How Arginine can Help a Pregnant Mother

Tuesday, March 11, 2014 8:17:20 AM America/Chicago

Arginine is an amino acid that can help a pregnant woman loosen up her blood vessels and speed up recovery time when it comes to healing tissue damage. Arginine aids in creating a flow of nitric oxide in a person’s bloodstream, helping one’s blood flow and bringing proper oxygen levels to all organs. It helps people feel healthier.

 

As an amino acid, arginine is produced by the body, as well as found in various foods like meat, seafood, nuts and soybeans. It can also be obtained through supplements like Arginine Infusion.

 

Pregnant women can benefit from increasing their arginine intake if they want or need to lessen hypertension deriving from “pre-eclampsia,” a situation that can lead to both maternal and neonatal death. Should the baby inside your womb have to go through pre-eclampsia, arginine has been known to help loosen the blood vessels so both mother and child experience some relief from the condition.

 

According to a report published in the British Medical Journal, foods that included arginine and antioxidant vitamins “reduced the incidence of pre-eclampsia in a populace at high risk of the condition.” Research also seems to indicate that arginine is most helpful during the initial stage of pregnancy.

 

Keep in mind that it’s recommended to discuss the topic of arginine supplements with your doctor. If you recently experienced a heart attack, or are taking insulin supplements or cholesterol meds, you should not use arginine supplements while pregnant. Otherwise, supplements like Sante Global’s Arginine Infusion may prove to be beneficial to the health of both expectant mothers and their unborn children.

Which Foods Contain Arginine?

Tuesday, March 4, 2014 8:27:25 AM America/Chicago

Arginine is an amino acid made in your body that aids in both cell division and protein synthesis. It also helps with the healing of wounds and damaged tissue. It is known for its many benefits, including the decrease of a person’s high blood pressure.

 

While your body makes its own arginine naturally, some people do not make a sufficient amount and need to obtain it from their diet.

Arginine is found in both animal and plant sources. If you consume seafood, such as tuna, lobster or salmon, or you’re a meat eater (liver, chicken, beef, or pork) then you’re getting arginine in your diet. As well, Egg yolks contain the amino acid.

 

Several nuts supply you with arginine, including peanuts, almonds and walnuts.

Most vegetables don’t have arginine, though spinach and lentils are exceptions. Fruits such as kiwi, watermelon and grapes are sources of arginine.

 

If you’re a healthy eater and eat whole wheat, buckwheat, oatmeal, and/or soy-based proteins, these foods are yet another way to get arginine in your diet.

 

Sante Global makes a supplement called Arginine Infusion, a tasty, berry-flavored powder you mix with water. It’s a drink many people enjoy having daily, as it tastes good and has helped multitudes of customers feel better

If you don’t have time to worry about whether or not the food you eat on a daily basis is supplying you with arginine, or you have a poor diet/a physical condition where you feel the need to be healthier, Sante Global’s affordable Arginine Infusion could be the ideal supplement for you.  For more information, please do not hesitate to contact us today.
