Arginine can Help Many Ailments

Wednesday, July 30, 2014 1:33:54 PM America/Chicago

Do you have poor blood circulation and blocked blood vessels? Arginine is an amino acid which your body converts into nitric oxide.

Nitric oxide is like dynamite blasting through an underground mine to clear out tunnels. If you’re all clogged up, you’re not going to be functioning at optimal levels. If you’re a man, you may not have the best erections. Your body may not be releasing growth hormone or insulin as well as it could/should. You may have poor wound healing as well as blood pressure/heart conditions.

Is arginine important to the body? It sure is. It’s a naturally made amino acid and most people make enough on their own. However, some are deficient and need to take an arginine supplement, such as Sante Global’s Arginine Infusion. Remember, arginine gets converted into nitric oxide, which, in turn, helps increase blood flow and circulation. Arginine aids in a person’s overall cardiovascular health.

Arginine has many benefits such as improving cellular health, enhancing a person’s long term memory, strengthening the immune system, helping control cholesterol, regulating insulin secretion in the pancreas and getting rid of erectile dysfunction. Athletes who feel the need to boost their workout performance have been known to take arginine supplements so they can go “faster, longer and harder.”  

If you’ve been feeling sluggish, want to improve your heart health, or need to get your blood flowing better throughout your body, give Sante Global’s Arginine Infusion a try. Available as a “berry blend” powder, it can be mixed with water so you can easily ingest it.

What is Type II diabetes? How can an increase in arginine intake help?

Thursday, July 10, 2014 9:45:00 AM America/Chicago

The very basic definition of Type 2 Diabetes is that your body does not produce insulin properly. Your body will cause glucose levels to rise higher than normal or anticipated, and this can also be referred to as hyperglycemia. Your pancreas will make extra insulin to account for this imbalance, but cannot keep up the high rate of production. It is possible for a simple dietary amino acid to assist people suffering from Type 2 Diabetes.

 

Arginine, which is commonly found in nuts (such as almonds and hazelnuts), has proven to help just as much as metabolizing glucose in mice.

 

Great results have been discovered by scientists in Cincinnati and Denmark in trials with mice. If these results reflect how arginine can assist humans just as well, then people suffering from Type 2 Diabetes will have a whole new realm of possibilities opened to them.

 

Ultimately, there is a wide range of benefits when it comes to increasing your arginine intake.  Even if you do not suffer from diabetes, increasing your arginine intake can help you in a litany of ways.  For example, research has shown that arginine can assist in preventing and in some cases, treating an array of ailments.

 

As research continues, who knows, we just might find better remedies to treat Type II Diabetes.


If you would like to learn more about the myriads of arginine benefits, please feel free to contact Sante Global today.

What’s the Difference Between Arginine and L’Arginine?

Monday, June 30, 2014 10:46:14 AM America/Chicago

There’s arginine and then there’s L-arginine. What’s the difference? Well, they’re actually the same amino acid (a building block for your body) with the same bonds between the same molecules, but they differ in their configuration. If they were songs, arginine would be the hit song and L-arginine would be the remix: same song—different arrangement.

If you’ve been reading the Sante Global blog for a while, you know that arginine is an essential amino acid found in the body as well as certain foods we eat like red meat, poultry and dairy products. It’s also available in Sante Global’s “Arginine Infusion” nutritional supplement—in the form of L-arginine.

Arginine is typically used as an overall term, while L-arginine is used with regards to supplements and the fact that this form is a specific form of arginine. Did you know, for instance, there’s D-arginine? That is one that’s used in lab research.

 

For purposes of a person’s health and well-being, L-arginine is what you’d take to improve heart health, blood flow, and more. It’s the one that helps stimulate the release of growth hormone and insulin, too.

Remember this: arginine and L-arginine are essentially the same, but the form you’d find in supplements like “Arginine Infusion” is L-arginine.

 

Sante Global’s “Arginine Infusion” is a powdered, berry-blend flavored combination of L-arginine and L-citrulline which work to increase your body’s production levels of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to open wider for improved blood flow.

 

When you’re looking to improve your overall cardiovascular health, supplements like “Arginine Infusion” may truly help your situation.

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.

New study suggests L-Arginine can decrease abdominal fat

Tuesday, June 10, 2014 3:03:27 PM America/Chicago

Visceral adiposity, also known as central obesity, is one of the many aliments linked to an increased risk for cardiovascular disease.

 

According to an article in FoodConsumer, a new study published in the Journal of Dietary Supplements now suggests that taking dietary supplement L-arginine could help reduce abdominal obesity. This study, led by Dr. Ryan T. Hurt from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, has shown that L-arginine works to reduce central obesity in non-diabetic individuals, much like the early studies that showed the reduction of visceral obesity and fat mass in animals. 

 

About the study

 

The study was conducted on 20 obese females between the ages of 18 and 40, with body masses between 30kg/m2 and 40 kg/m2, and a waist circumference larger than 89 centimeters.

 

During the study, the women were directed to take three grams of L-arginine, three times per day for 12 weeks. In addition to the supplement, the participants were also advised on making healthy lifestyle changes.

 

The results

 

At the 12 week mark, both waist circumference and body weight decreased, and this conclusion was made: “L-arginine may be effective at reducing central adiposity in obese patients.”

 

What is L-arginine?

 

Now that you know the benefits of L-arginine, you may still be wondering what it is. L-arginine is an amino acid often found in plant and animal proteins including dairy products, fish, meat, poultry, and nuts. And as you can see, L-arginine is commonly found in the supplement form.

 

If you have any questions about what L-arginine is and the supplements it can be found in, please contact us today at Sante Global. We’ll be happy to get you set up on the track to losing any unwanted weight, or tips for living a healthy life!

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.

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.

Using L-Arginine to Treat an Open Wound

Wednesday, February 5, 2014 8:36:59 AM America/Chicago

Open wounds are no fun. When the skin is broken, it’s very important to clean the area to protect against infection.

For minor wounds, after bleeding has subsided, you can wash the area with soap and water. If you have access to a sink or bath tub, gently run water over the area for a couple minutes to get rid of debris and germs.

If you have a more serious open wound, you may need medical attention. Go to the local clinic or hospital and have a doctor investigate the tissue damage and make recommendations regarding treatment.

Many people apply antibiotics to their wounds to help them heal. Be careful if you have allergies or sensitivities to certain medication(s)—you don’t want to end up making the wound worse.

Ideally, it’s a smart idea to cover the wound with a bandage daily, protecting it from exposure to things like dirt. Changing coverings over the wound on a daily basis is recommended.

Arginine Infusion, a health supplement from Sante Global, may aid in treating burn wounds. Research has shown that L-Arginine, a natural amino acid, may help accelerate wound healing and post-surgery recovery. In some cases, it has been found to reduce healing time of injuries as it quickens the repair time of damaged tissue.

 

Available as a powder you add to water and drink, Arginine Infusion comes in a tasty berry blend flavor. Besides assisting in wound healing, it has many other potential health benefits.

Do you have a pesky wound that is taking too long to heal? Consider trying L-Arginine to help it heal.

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.”

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.

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.
