Arginine can Help You Lose Weight

Monday, June 23, 2014 10:47:03 AM America/Chicago

If you don’t want to lose weight, you probably know someone who does. People these days, in general, are quite obsessed with losing weight, and it’s no wonder they are, since the junk foods we eat have us packing on the pounds.

For those who want to lose weight, obviously a change in dietary habits, as well as exercise, can lead to positive results. And then, of course, there are some other things a person can do to help lose weight.

Have you ever heard of arginine? It’s one of essential amino acids that may aid in weight loss when taken as a supplement.

Arginine is associated with nitric oxide, which helps blood flow better throughout the body. Arginine is very beneficial to a person’s body. It helps improve a person’s muscular strength, their libido, the function of their heart, and protein synthesis. As an energy booster, arginine helps people feel less sluggish and more robust, able to confidently do things they want and need to do to lose weight, such as jogging or weight-training.

Sante Global makes “Arginine Infusion,” which is a nutritional supplement powder. Arginine Infusion gives a person the energy boost needed to exercise harder and longer in order to burn the fat they want to lose.

Daily use of Arginine Infusion helps improve a person’s overall quality-of-life, and Sante Global believes in the product so much that they offer a no questions asked full refund to anyone who is not completely satisfied—so it’s worth a try!

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.

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.

How Arginine Can Help Angina

Monday, June 16, 2014 3:20:23 PM America/Chicago

Angina is one of those words you hear every so often, but you may not know what it actually is. Angina is a fancy word for chest pain. When blood flow is restricted to a person’s heart, especially during times of stress, people—typically men—may feel pressure or tightness in their chest that goes away after their stressful activity. This could indicate angina. Also, angina is generally associated with hardening of one’s arteries.

Basically, angina occurs because the heart is not getting the proper blood flow, and, more specifically, it’s not getting the needed oxygen delivered from the coronary arteries.

To find out if you have angina, ask your doctor for an electrocardiogram or stress test.

Adjusting your diet, exercising more, cutting out habits like smoking, and taking certain supplements can all help improve the blood flow to the heart, thus reducing angina.

 

One particular supplement that can help those with angina is arginine.

 

Arginine (or l-arginine as it is also known) is an amino acid studied by researchers and found to aid in blood flow. People with angina should consider utilizing Sante Global’s Arginine Infusion product in order to make sure their body has a good supply of arginine. It comes in a powder form with a berry flavor. You mix it with water and drink it.

 

Arginine helps create a constant flow of nitric oxide in your blood, restoring healthy oxygen levels where needed so you’re able to function better in life, especially during times of stress or exercise.

Angina means your heart isn’t getting the blood flow and oxygen it needs. Arginine is something that helps change that situation for the better.

All About Nitric Oxide

Wednesday, June 11, 2014 3:49:06 PM America/Chicago

What Nitric Oxide is

 

A gas that produced naturally in the body, nitric oxide is used to communicate between cells. In fact, nitric oxide (NO) is produced when “enzymes in the body break down the amino acid, arginine,” according to registered dietitian and American Dietetic Association spokesperson, Jim White.

 

While you may think nitric oxide supplements contain nitric oxide - and that’s what many would assume - they don’t! Fact of the matter is nitric oxide supplement contains arginine, which is found in supplement form, or can be consumed naturally through foods including spinach, shrimp, white turkey meat, and sesame seeds. 

 

What Nitric Oxide does for your body

 

Now that we know what it is, let’s get into some of the things nitric oxide does for your body. As we said above, its main job is to deliver messages between the cells in your body; however, it also plays a significant role in “controlling the circulation of blood and regulating activities of the brain, lungs, liver, kidneys, stomach and other organs.”

 

Nitric oxide is also great for those looking to build muscle, as it plays a role in releasing hormones and adrenaline. This gas can also increase growth and recovery times by increasing blood flow. This results in more nutrients getting to the muscles, allowing them to grow.

 

As you can see, there is a significant relationship between nitric oxide and arginine. While you can obtain both NO and arginine naturally, to ensure you’re getting a substantial amount of these, you might think about taking arginine as a supplement, especially if you’re an athlete, as research shows arginine may positively affect athletic performance.

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.

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.

How L-Arginine Can Help Patients Battle Cancer

Thursday, December 26, 2013 8:58:11 AM America/Chicago

According to Dr. Joe Prendergast, L-arginine supplements are beneficial for cancer patients because they help promote the flow of oxygen to all areas of the body, specifically the suffering tissues that need it the most. More air to oxygen-deprived areas is a threat to cancer cells because it makes it difficult for them to survive. Cancer thrives when acid levels are high and oxygen levels are low, and L-arginine can combat that. 

 

Originally stated in an article from The LA Times, Jimmy Keller was on trial for this very theory. Keller injected patients with Tumorex, which is chemically similar to L-Arginine. These amino acids would cause heat and tingling sensations in patients tumors. Within weeks, days, and even hours, patients noted that their tumors were softening and shrinking; some tumors completely disappeared.

 

In The LA Times article from 1991, they mentioned how visitors and other doctors stood at Keller’s side to back up his theory. Dr. George Eisenberg recalls a particular event while testifying at Keller's trial. A doctor from Albuquerque, Eisenberg brought a patient to Keller's clinic. This patient could not walk nor swallow. When Keller gave the treatment, the patient’s pain was almost completely eradicated. He even had a lobster dinner that night! A team at Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center stated that boosting levels of oxygen and nitric oxide help direct swarms of cancer fighting cells to the tumors. L-Arginine and Tumorex are amazing weapons in the battle against cancer.

 

Dr. David Steenblock, an El Toro osteopath, testified that he saw dozens of patients with metastasized cancer make the trip to Keller's clinic--and when they came back, no cancer was visible on the bone scan. "He has a lot more success with cancer patients than I have," Steenblock said.”

 

Learn more about this theory, and the trail behind it, by reading the article from the LA times. Click here to learn more.

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
