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.

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.

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.
