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.

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.
