Arginine and Male Infertility

Tuesday, June 17, 2014 12:42:05 PM America/Chicago

For those couples who are struggling with fertility issues, sometimes it’s the man who is having the problem. Idiopathic male infertility is a condition where a man is unable to cause pregnancy in a fertile female. The term idiopathic means the cause is not known or arises spontaneously.

Male infertility doesn’t get much attention from the press, but it does account for almost half of all infertility cases, and is typically due to deficiencies in a man’s semen. Couples who are trying to conceive a child can become very downhearted when faced with the prospect that “for some reason, it’s just not happening.”

According to an article on FoodConsumer.org, researcher David Liu, PhD, mentions that there are several things a man can take to deal with idiopathic infertility. Besides garlic, fish oil, and peanuts, Liu recommends arginine.

A pre-cursor to nitric oxide, arginine is an amino acid that serves many important functions in the body including cell division, removing ammonia, healing wounds and releasing hormones. Arginine helps get the blood oxygenated and flowing well throughout the body. It has been used, in conjunction with other treatments, to help men deal with erectile dysfunction, as well as several other problems.

Arginine is mentioned in the July 2014 Seminars in Reproductive Medicine academic journal as something that may help with idiopathic male infertility. While the body naturally makes arginine, sometimes, for various reasons, it may not be making enough.

Sante Global’s Arginine Infusion is a powdered supplement with a berry flavor. Mixed with water, it becomes a refreshing drink that contributes to a person’s overall health, delivering arginine and other beneficial ingredients to the body. If you’re dealing with infertility issues, it may be wise to increase you intake of arginine to your daily diet, to see if it solves infertility problems.

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.

What Causes Asthma and How Can You Treat It

Friday, January 17, 2014 11:29:38 AM America/Chicago

Asthma is a chronic disease that can restrict the lung’s airflow, making it difficult to breath.  Asthmatics often have “triggers’’ which cause the inside of their airways to inflame, making it difficult to catch their breath and breathe.  Moreover, it increases the risk of a possible allergic reaction.

 

For the majority of asthmatics, their triggers are one or more of the following:

 

- Allergies .  Examples of allergies are dog hair, cat hair, cut grass, ragweed etc.


- Exercise. Running around, regardless of the shape they are in, can quickly become hazardous.


- Smoke, specifically cigarette or cigar smoke.  Asthma can be triggered even if they aren’t the ones smoking; simply sitting near a smoker can trigger it.


- Other illnesses.  Whether it’s a common cold, a sinus infection or a different ailment, a separate infliction can ignite asthma symptoms.


-  Environmental factors (i.e. ragweed or pollen season).


- Other mitigating factors, such as genetics.

 

Unfortunately, there is not a way to permanently cure asthma.  However, asthma can be treated and managed to ensure asthmatics are able to live a quality life.  Most asthmatics will take a puff out of a preventative inhaler each day in order to “stay ahead” of a potential asthma attack.  In addition, they may take a pill, or another form of medicine to manage and control their asthma.

 

Perhaps just as, if not more important, it is critical for asthmatics to do what they can to avoid their triggers.  Sometimes there is nothing one can do to avoid them; in those instances,  it is vital to have a “rescue inhaler” on hand.  Hopefully, the preventative approach will help an asthmatic avoid an attack, but if they do suffer an attack, it’s important they have their rescue inhaler.  The rescue inhaler is separate from their preventative one, as it provides instant steroidal relief and can help asthmatics avoid a trip to the emergency room.

 

Ultimately, it’s important for asthmatics to meet with their doctor and outline a treatment and prevention plan with them.  Also, it could be prudent to try a natural supplement, such as  L-Arginine.   L-Arginine assists asthmatics by opening up their pulmonary pathways, allowing them to breathe easier and more efficiently.  To learn more about how it can help asthmatics, please contact Sante Global today.

The Top 5 Ways to Prevent Heart Disease

Thursday, November 14, 2013 2:38:19 PM America/Chicago

 

Although heart disease is the leading killer of both men and women in the United States, it is often labeled as an unknown or silent killer, as many people who suffer from it have minor or unrecognizable symptoms. Because women can have very different symptoms from men, heart disease is often diagnosed too late, or in some cases, not at all. 

 

There are ways to prevent the onset of heart disease while you’re still healthy. The proper diet, lifestyle, and exercise can greatly lessen the chances of heart disease taking over your life.

 

 5 ways to Prevent Heart Disease:

 

1. Proper Exercise - Exercise is a major factor in the successful prevention of heart disease. Walking at least 30 minutes a day, at least 3 times a week consistently, is a great way to remain healthy and strengthen the heart.

 

2. No Smoking - If you are a tobacco smoker, it is necessary to stop smoking in order to prevent it from affecting your heart. If you’ve never smoked, it is best to keep it that way. Smokers have a significantly higher risk of getting heart disease than non-smokers. By narrowing the blood vessels, nicotine makes the heart work harder to pump blood through the body. Studies have found that even non-smokers who are consistently around smokers, are in danger of inhaling second hand smoke. So stay clear of the tobacco products as much as possible.

 

3. Heart Healthy Diet - Eating a nutritional diet is one of the best ways to prevent heart disease. Foods low in cholesterol, fat, and sodium, are a part of a heart healthy diet plan. It is good to consume foods rich in healthy fats like omega 3. Salmon is one of those foods rich in omega 3 fats, and olive oil is also a great addition to a healthy eating plan. Steer clear of unhealthy fats, such as, saturated and trans fats. Red meats, deep fried foods, and many pre-packaged items are foods that should be taken off of your list.

 

4. Regular Check-Ups - Visiting the doctor at least once a year, for a physical exam, is another effective prevention method. Getting regular check-ups can help to prevent heart disease and many other health conditions. Finding signs and symptoms ahead of time can make a real difference in preventing and reversing the disease.

 

5. Maintain a Healthy Weight - Maintaining a healthy weight is one of the simplest, yet most challenging ways to prevent heart disease. If you find it difficult to eat healthily and exercise, seek counsel from your doctor who may have suggestions and referrals to a dietician or nutritionist that can help lessen the challenge.

 

Lastly, consider helping your heart by taking natural supplements.  For example, Arginine Infusion supplements from Sante Global can improve your cardiovascular health, especially when you take it in accordance with the aforementioned recommendations.

Things To Ask Yourself Before Taking a Supplement

Monday, November 11, 2013 1:08:30 PM America/Chicago

Supplements help provide nutrients to your body that you may not otherwise be getting from the variety of foods you consume. These days, most adults seem to take a supplement every day or at least occasionally, ranging from vitamins to herbs. Common supplements include energy bars, fish oils, and minerals like calcium and iron.

Before you start taking a supplement, ask yourself—and ideally your doctor—some questions.

First, ask yourself this: “How will I potentially benefit from taking this supplement?” It’s best to consult a health care professional to get their opinion on whether or not you, in particular, should take a certain supplement. They should know more than you do about the benefits and the risks since they deal with supplement questions all the time.

Next, consider the following: What’s the proper dosage? How do I take this—in pill form, in liquid form, etc.? When should I take it--morning and night? Should it be taken on an empty stomach? And for how long a time period should I be “on” it? Is this something I should take daily for the rest of my life, or just something I should use during a certain time frame or season?

 

Now most of you think you can figure out what’s best for yourself when it comes to using supplements. However, the truly smart ones know that unforeseen circumstances can arise, making it necessary to do your research.  For example, some may interact well with other medications you are taking; however, some may not. That said, at least consider talking to a pharmacist, registered dietician, your doctor or a supplement representative—a real person in real life—so you can make a well-informed decision before putting certain supplements in your body.

Sante Global makes a supplement called “Arginine Infusion,” which many people have found to help restore blood flow through the entire body, restoring healthy oxygen levels to all organs. The “heart health drink” is a supplement you might consider—ask a health care professional about it, and see what they say. It might be right for you.

Arginine Deficiency and Depression

Monday, November 4, 2013 8:00:20 AM America/Chicago

 

According to the World Health Organization, more than 350 million people across the globe are suffering from depression. This devastatingly common mental illness is the leading cause of suicide and disability among people of all ages.

 

Depression is mood altering and creates emotional challenges that take over everyday living. There are a variety of treatments out there to help combat depression including various therapies and medications. The treatments, however, take a lot of time and patience to be successful.

 

Recent studies have shown that deficiency of the amino acid arginine can have an impact on depression symptoms. A lack of arginine in the body can lead to increased depression symptoms of depressed mood, lethargy and fatigue. This is because arginine deficiency reduces the production of hormones and substance that regulate chemical imbalances.

 

The ways in which an arginine deficiency can affect depression include:

 

Your body needs adequate production of nitric oxide, which needs arginine in order for the body to make it. Nitric oxide relaxes blood vessels through the process of vasodilation. Vasodilation helps to produce more blood flow, oxygen and nutrients in the body, which can decrease some depression symptoms.

 

Arginine supplements are a releasing agent for the human growth hormone. If you have a lack of hormone production and release of this hormone from the pituitary gland, it can result in reduced energy, depressed mood and poor immune response.

 

To neutralize ammonia in your bloodstream, which helps the liver to detoxify and regenerate, you need arginine. To remove toxins and heavy metals from your blood, you need a healthy liver. An unhealthy liver can lead to chemical imbalances that create mood changes. 

 

If you are experiencing depression, talk to your physician about a possible arginine deficiency which can be boosted by supplementation. For any information about our arginine products, please feel free to contact us.

5 Healthy Steps to Slowing Down the Aging Process

Wednesday, October 9, 2013 1:15:35 PM America/Chicago

5 Healthy Steps to Slowing Down the Aging Process

Though aging has plenty to do with your state of mind, and how you feel about it; there are still plenty of ways to slow down the actual physical aging process.

Of course, taking care of yourself, eating a healthy and moderate diet, and regular exercise, are key factors to aging in a healthy way; but there are other ways to keep your healthy vibrant energy flowing well into your golden years.

Vitamin D

Many doctors call vitamin D, the ultimate anti-ager. Vitamin D strengthens almost every part of the body, and even nourishes the mind, improving memory. Making certain that you get your daily requirement of vitamin D, has also been proven to fight off cancer. 1000 milligrams is the suggested daily requirement, or 1200 milligrams’ if you’re over age 60.

Fresh Air

Never underestimate the healing powers of fresh air and sunshine. Sunlight produces serotonin, a chemical the body produces, that naturally boosts your mood. It’s healthy to spend as much time in the sun and fresh air, as possible. Sometimes just getting out of the house, can make you feel better.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is another supplement that should be added to your daily regimen. Vitamin C assists your body in making collagen, which keeps your skin young and elastic. Foods rich in vitamin C, such as strawberries, are great for collagen production. You can make a daily practice of eating them for breakfast, plus other foods, that are rich in vitamin C.

Lessen Stress

Reducing the stress in your life can keep you young and healthy. There are many ways to relieve stress and bring some calm into your world. Meditation is a great practice for tapping into that calm space within. Walking is also a fun way to relieve stress. Take a daily walk out in nature, or a nearby park.

HGH

HGH is a natural hormone the body produces that regulates growth, slows down the aging process, and can produce results, such as younger looking skin, a better sex drive, a boost in your mood, and more  physical energy. According to WebMD, HGH also works in conjunction with collagen, to produce even better anti-aging results. HGH can come in the form of injections or supplements.  Be sure to consult your doctor before adding any supplements to your daily routine.

The anti-aging process is a daily process of being mindful of how you treat yourself. Eat well, find ways of handling the stress of everyday life, and take supplements to improve your health and vitality.

Sante Global carries many supplements that slow down the aging process, increases vitality, and prevents many ailments that can come with age. Our products naturally increase the production of HGH in the body, which combined with a healthy lifestyle, can add many more healthy years to your life.

Natural Ways to Reduce High Blood Pressure

Wednesday, September 25, 2013 9:07:13 AM America/Chicago

High blood pressure is one of the most common ailments afflicting Americans today. Also known as “hypertension,” high blood pressure is a medical condition where blood pressure in your arteries is elevated, forcing your heart to work hard to pump blood.


There’s a long list of why you or your loved one would not want high blood pressure, including stroke, heart attack, heart failure, aneurysms of the arteries, kidney disease, and, to top it off, a shortened life expectancy.

To combat high blood pressure, try reducing the amount of salt and alcohol in your diet. Eat more fresh fruit and veggies. And for goodness sake, don’t just say you’ll exercise, but actually engage in consistent aerobic physical activity a couple times a week. That means take a walk or jog around the block, go for a bike ride, or dance to music in your living room. It’s important to de-stress your life if you’re going to properly deal with high blood pressure.

However, there are also natural ways to combat blood pressure that won’t take up your time or drastically change the way you live your life.  Sante Global makes products with a substance called L-Arginine, an essential amino acid. L-Arginine converts to nitric oxide in the body, enhancing blood flow and supporting cardiovascular health.

When you have high blood pressure, the pressure on your arterial walls is intense. Nitric oxide relaxes those walls. Consider getting L-Arginine products from Sante Global, such as soft gels or berry-blend powder, in order to see if they help you or your loved one with blood flow and overall well-being if you (or they) are experiencing high blood pressure.

How Sante Global Can Help Diabetics With Circulation Issues

Thursday, September 19, 2013 8:54:56 AM America/Chicago

People with diabetes often have problems with blood circulation in their body. Diabetics have to watch their diet, because it’s very easy for their blood sugar levels to rise quickly, and when that happens, sugar sticks to cells lining the blood vessel and arterial walls, causing them to swell. Over time, these walls become less elastic, which means the routes your blood would normally take to properly flow through your body for “normal” circulation get narrowed, hardened or blocked.

In essence, too much quickly consumed sugar is a bad thing for a diabetic because it messes up the “highway” the blood travels inside the body. Oftentimes, diabetics suffer from bad circulation in their legs and feet because the blood can’t flow as easily and freely as it normally would.

 

Honestly, poor circulation is not a good thing; it can lead to sores, infection, amputation (yikes!), stroke and heart disease. Do you want any of those problems? No way!

Some of the key ways you can avoid circulation problems as a diabetic are things you probably don’t want to do, but you need to do: quit smoking, eat healthier, and exercise regularly.

Additionally, Sante Global sells a product called L-Arginine, which is an advantageous product for diabetics. It’s a supplement made from natural ingredients that you could take to increase blood flow through your body. L-Arginine includes nitric oxide, which opens up blood vessels, allowing more oxygen to flow throughout your circulatory system. You should try it if you’re presently dealing with circulation problems due to diabetes or other factors, and enjoy the results.

L-Arginine's Promising Anti-Diabetic Effects

Wednesday, September 18, 2013 11:42:15 AM America/Chicago

 

According to a recent article from Science Daily, new research conducted at the University of Copenhagen shows that the amino acid arginine provides many health benefits for those suffering from Type 2 Diabetes by helping to stabilize glucose in the body.

 

The body not using insulin properly causes type 2 Diabetes, which affects 90% of diabetics. At first, the pancreas makes extra insulin to compensate for what the body cannot produce, but over time can’t produce enough insulin to regulate glucose levels. (http://www.diabetes.org/diabetes-basics/type-2/)

 

The research has been conducted in labs using both lean (insulin sensitive) and obese (insulin resistant) mice. People suffering from Type 2 Diabetes are insulin resistant. The mice were subjected to the amino acid arginine and then monitored by a glucose tolerance test. The test is responsible for measuring the body’s ability to remove glucose from the blood over a period. 

 

The results of the research are as such, in both groups of mice (lean and obese) there was a 40% improvement in glucose metabolism management. It was also shown that the production of the hormone GLP-1, a glucagon-like peptide-1, was increased. This intestinal hormone’s job is to regulate appetite and glucose metabolism. This hormone is used in the drugs that treat Type 2 Diabetes.

 

This research is paving a new road for those suffering with Diabetes. Although this research does not suggest we can now “cure” diabetes, it essentially shows that with arginine-infused dietary supplements and arginine based-foods, we can see the effect on how well our bodies process the foods we eat.

 

For additional information regarding this study and its findings, read the full article titled “Amino Acid With Promising Anti-Diabetic Effects” here: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/0/130909121954.htm

L-Arginine Truths: Six Myths Answered

Friday, July 26, 2013 8:20:10 AM America/Chicago

 

Have you ever wondered the truth about health supplements? A mix of information about supplements was misunderstood or passed down incorrectly over time, leaving us with a few myths. Myths are untrue facts that many believe to be true, solely because so many people believe them.

 

Here are the true answers to common questions and warnings about health supplements.

 

  • Supplements that promote muscle growth are steroids

False. Many muscle-boosting supplements produce Creatine, which is not like a steroid; your body produces it naturally. Steroids are strong drugs that increase testosterone levels to enhance performance. When taken in excess, steroids are very dangerous and addicting.

  • You cannot gain muscle while you burn fat

False. Dieting and supplementing that diet with L-arginine promotes muscle growth, using Creatine. This helps muscle build while you burn fat.

  • You can get the same amino acids by eating certain foods

Conditional. You could, but you’d have to eat food in portions 3 or 4 times the average size. Just because you can, doesn’t mean you have to.

  • Erectile Dysfunction is a natural part of a man’s anatomy as he ages

False. Many men live full, long lives without experiencing erectile dysfunction. Supplements like L-arginine exist to promote healthy blood flow to all vital organs. This helps treat ED, making life easier for the patient.

  • You can take supplements to promote muscle growth and fat burn even when you don't work out

False. Nothing will ever replace a healthy diet and a good workout. Supplements help the process, but they don't do the work for you.

  • Our bodies produce enough of the semi-essential nutrients and amino acids, supplements are a waste of money.

False. Not everyone’s body works correctly. Your sedentary level and your diet contribute to the production of certain vitamins and amino acids. If you’re suffering from an arginine deficiency, a supplement could make your life much easier.
