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.

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.
