The Wondrous Benefits of Vitamin C

Tuesday, August 19, 2014 1:30:46 PM America/Chicago

The list of vitamins found in nature can be pretty long and intimidating. Figuring out which ones to include in your daily regimen can be confusing. However, there are some vitamins, like vitamin C, that are especially beneficial to humans. In fact, most other animals don’t need vitamin C at all. But the benefits it provides to us should not be ignored. Once you learn what vitamin C can do for you, it should be an easy choice to prioritize it on a daily basis.

 

It Combats the Common Cold

Everyone knows that there is no real cure for the common cold, but vitamin C is often thought of as the next best thing. Studies have shown that it could lessen the severity of symptoms, and even shorten the amount of time they last. One of the reasons for this is that vitamin C acts like an antihistamine. Instead of reaching for the daily allergy pills on the pharmacy shelves, many people swear by a daily dose of natural vitamin C.

 

It Helps to Prevent Cancer

In contrast to the everyday common cold, cancer is a potentially life threatening condition that comes in many forms. But like the common cold, protection against cancer starts with a strong immune system, which vitamin C can help to promote. Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant, fighting damage and mutation at the cellular level.

 

It Can Keep You Seeing Clear

Vitamin A usually gets all of the credit as a key to healthy vision, but vitamin C has an important role to play as well. The lenses in our eyes use vitamin C to fight against the formation of cataracts, which are a common cause of blindness later in life.

 

It Can Help to Manage Diabetes

One of the problems with low insulin levels is that compounds like vitamin C have a hard time effecting cells without it. Vitamin C may also help to regulate glucose, which leads to many complications in diabetics. Supplementing vitamin C may help to alleviate these conditions.

 

Of course, we could write an entire book on the benefits of vitamin C. It’s benefits are so widely known—with new ones being discovered—that anyone who takes their health seriously should be including it in their diet. That’s why at Sante Global, we’ve included a daily dose of vitamin C in our signature Arginine Infusion heart health drink.

10 Benefits of L Arginine Supplements

Friday, August 15, 2014 1:00:29 PM America/Chicago

L arginine is a known supplement for improving blood flow for people with high cholesterol and heart conditions. The semi-essential amino acid is available through some foods, but in higher levels through supplements and drugs.

 

About L Arginine Deficiency

 

A deficiency in this amino acid can cause adverse side effects such as lethargy, weight gain, high blood pressure, and other signs of cardiovascular turmoil. Failing to eat enough protein can result in this deficiency but it could also be an outcome of genetics. If changing your diet doesn’t improve your arginine levels, you may need a supplement like L-Arginine.

 

Since it increases blood flow, this amino acid is beneficial for your cardiovascular and overall health in so many ways. Below, we’ve listed 10 ways this supplement can improve your quality of life.

 

10 L-Arginine Benefits


  1. Improves Breathing by Increasing Blood Flow to the Heart
  2. Supports Immune System
  3. Increases Exercise Endurance
  4. Promotes Healthy Kidney Function
  5. Improves Cardiovascular Vitality
  6. Improves Skin
  7. Enhances Sex Drive & Reverses Impotence
  8. Lowers Blood Pressure & Stabilizes Angina
  9. Treats Congestive Heart Failure
  10. Helps Build Muscle & Promote Weight Loss

 

As we said, you can improve your natural levels by changing your diet. Red meat is delicious, but it just doesn't have the nutrients we need and it's filled with harmful substances. If you're concerned about your cardiovascular health, opt for things like nuts, eggs, salmon, tuna, and tofu. However, if you're looking for a significant change, you can't eat it. You would have to consume a surmountable amount of food to get the level you need (about 6-9 grams per day). If your focus is to improve muscle strength and cardiovascular health, you must consider taking supplements.

What Types of Medications Interact with Arginine?

Tuesday, August 12, 2014 12:58:25 PM America/Chicago

Sante Global’s Arginine Infusion supplement has helped many people improve their cardiovascular health. Arginine helps produce positive results for people who want or need to improve their blood flow and get more oxygen delivered to the heart and other organs throughout their bodies.

Arginine does interact with some medications, though, and if you’re taking arginine supplements, it’s important to know about these interactions.

For instance, anti-hyperintensive drugs used to treat high blood pressure interact with arginine. Since arginine tends to decrease blood pressure, then taking arginine along with high blood pressure medications could cause your blood pressure to go too low. If you’re on Capoten, Vasotec, Cozaar, Diovan, Cardizem, Norvasc, HydroDiuril or Lasix, it’s best to avoid arginine supplements.


Are you taking any nitrate medications like nitroglycerin (Nitro-Bid, Nitro-Dur, Nitrostat) or isosorbide (Imdur, Isordil, Sorbitrate) to increase blood flow to your heart? If so, know that arginine increases blood flow, so combining it with nitrate medications could lead to dizziness and lightheadedness.

 

Some men use arginine to enhance sexual performance. Be careful, guys, if you’re taking Viagra, which can lower blood pressure. Viagra and arginine together may cause your blood pressure to go too low, making you dizzy and causing other negative side effects.

 

If you’re not currently on any medications, including the aforementioned ones, consider adding Arginine Infusion into your dietary mix. It’s a heart health drink that creates a good blood flow thanks to arginine converting into nitric oxide. Because of this, your organs get more oxygen, and your body functions better than normal.

 

For specific questions about arginine supplements, you can call Sante Global at 866-617-0009 or email info@santeglobal.com.

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.

Arginine & Sleep

Monday, July 21, 2014 11:16:53 AM America/Chicago

If you find yourself overly tired in the morning despite getting your regular 7-8 hours of sleep, then you might not be receiving a good enough rest. Insufficient sleep or a night of irregular sleep can actually have side-effects worse than exhaustion. Long-term health problems such as diabetes, obesity, and heart disease can result from excessive poor nights of sleep. That said, did you know you can take back the night with an increase in arginine intake? Say good-bye to those sleepless nights and say hello to a new, healthy lifestyle.

 

Arginine is an amino acid and according to Mayo Clinic, it is a semi-essential amino that the body creates naturally. However, if your body does not produce a plentiful amount, you might want to try to obtain it from foods and supplements. You can easily consume this amino acid through meats, eggs and other foods that are rich in protein, while taking an arginine supplement could further ensure you’re getting what you need.

 

 So how does Arginine help you sleep better and more regularly?  Studies show that taking arginine assists in the enhancement of short-wave sleep and reduces waking in the middle of the night. Increasing your arginine intake during your bedtime regimen can help improve your overall quality of sleep, in addition to your blood flow.

 

Put the melatonin and ZzzQuil back in the medicine cabinet and explore how more arginine can help you get a consistent good night’s rest and develop a healthy lifestyle.  For more information, please feel free to contact us today.

L-Arginine as a Pro-sexual Supplement for Men and Women

Monday, July 14, 2014 11:47:46 AM America/Chicago

More of us suffer sexual dysfunction than we may realize. Allegedly, about 43% of men and 31% of women cannot fully enjoy sexual intercourse in a healthy way. In women, it's usually described as a loss of libido. For men it's the same, but it could also include the inability to perform physically.

 

L-arginine can help with this statistic, as it is an essential amino acid, which serves as a safe, efficient pro-sexual nutrient for both genders.

 

L-Arginine helps support the creation of Nitric Oxide in the body. Used to lower blood pressure, or support cardio workouts, this supplement is phenomenal at controlling blood flow. Insufficient blood flow is a major cause of impotence in men, while extremely high/low blood pressure can also kill a woman's sex drive. L-Arginine supplements help to regulate blood flow through the body, lowering blood pressure, increasing oxygen, and improving the libido.

 

In addition to L Arginine, you can try some natural ways to boost your libido. Sometimes there are psychological irritants that can raise your blood pressure and cause difficulties while trying to be intimate.

 

1. Exercise

Aerobics and Cardio sessions improves blood flow and boosts endorphins, so you'll be in a better mood, and more energetic.

 

2. De-Stress & Breathe

Stress is the ultimate romance killer. Cortisol is released when we're stressing out. Do whatever you have to do to remove the panic feelings. Try going to a spa or taking a 1-2 night getaway by yourself. Sometimes, controlled berating can work with L-arginine to increase blood flow quickly.

 

3. Switch Things Up

When you've been married for 40 years and your daily routine has gotten a bit mundane, find something new to do. Going for a random hike or lying out in the sun to talk might just be what your relationship needs to push past the stressful situation at hand. Pairing L-Arginine with exhilarating date nights is the perfect way to make sparks fly again.

 

Contact us, or follow us on twitter to learn more about how L-Arginine can improve many aspects of your life, including your libido and health.

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.

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.

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!

L-Arginine and Athletic Performance

Tuesday, June 3, 2014 11:54:35 AM America/Chicago

L-Arginine, an important amino acid, is well known for its health benefits, and is fast becoming a widely used supplement for enhancing health. Now, studies have shown that arginine’s ability to increase blood flow can actually help athletic performance and those who enjoy the benefits of a good workout.

 

Nitric Oxide (or NO), plays an important part in increasing blood flow to organs and muscles by aiding in vasodilation, or dilating the blood vessels. Increased blood flow enhances physical endurance and enables people who are working out or participating in any athletic activity to push harder and last longer. In a sport, this could be the difference between winning or losing.

 

L-Arginine is responsible for the synthesis of nitric oxide in the body and therefore has a direct bearing on blood flow. In studies, it has been shown that l-arginine, in large doses, increases the function of the blood vessels.

 

Jeff S Volek, PhD, RD, says in an article for Nutrition Express, “Healthy men performed an exercise test on a cycle on two occasions. During one trial they consumed 6g of L-arginine. During the second trial they consumed a placebo. One hour after taking the L-arginine and the placebo, subjects performed an incremental exercise test to exhaustion. The primary finding was that L-arginine supplementation reduced the amount of oxygen required to perform exercise. This means that individuals accomplished the same exercise load, but with less energy expended.”  This has big implications for athletes looking to improve their performance.

 

If you are looking to increase your endurance potential, or enhance your performance whether you are exercising or playing a sport, L-arginine might be a good supplement to try.

What is folate (folic acid)?

Wednesday, May 28, 2014 11:54:57 AM America/Chicago

Folate and folic acid are forms of a water-soluble B vitamin. Folate is found naturally in foods, whereas folic acid is the synthetic form of the vitamin. Folate, in all forms, is key in the forming of genetic material including DNA and RNA.

 

In fact, folate and its derivatives are essential to our growth. Folate is also extremely important for pregnant women, helping to develop a healthy fetus. Folate has also been known to help prevent cervical cancer and can reduce osteoporosis.

 

Not only important for women, folate helps fight heart disease, as well as releasing serotonin – the “feel good” chemical.

 

Where can I find folate (folic acid)?

Since folate is found naturally in many foods, you might not even know you’re consuming it! Here is a list of some of the many foods folate is found in:

 

  • Spinach
  • Broccoli
  • Lettuce
  • Okra
  • Nuts
  • Beans
  • Dairy Products
  • Asparagus
  • Bananas
  • Melons
  • Lemons
  • Legumes
  • Mushrooms
  • Orange Juice
  • Tomato Juice
  • Yeast
  • Organ Meat (Beef Liver and Kidney)

 

And since 1998, the FDA has required manufactures to add folic acid to “enriched breads, cereals, flours, cornmeals, pastas, rice, and other grain products,” according to a folate article from The National Institutes of Health.

 

In addition to these folate-rich foods, it’s recommended to take vitamins – B vitamins – that are rich with folate and folic acid.

 

If you’re looking for vitamins and supplements full of folate, at Sante Global, our Arginine Infusion contains 105% of your daily value of folate (as folic acid). This means you’ll never have to worry about getting enough folate into your diet!

Improve Renal Function with Arginine

Wednesday, May 14, 2014 8:16:38 AM America/Chicago

Most people have two kidneys in their body. Kidneys act like a body’s filter, processing about a liter of blood per minute.

Kidneys play a role in making urine, removing wastes and fluids from your blood, and controlling your body’s chemical balance. They also regulate a body’s water and salt balance. Furthermore, kidneys help control your blood pressure, keep your bones healthy, and help make red blood cells, which are used to deliver oxygen to body tissues via blood flowing through the circulatory system.

Some people experience the progressive loss of their kidney function, and this is known as chronic renal failure. Note that renal is another word for kidney. Obviously, chronic renal failure is bad. It can lead to cardiac arrest or worse. Those with diabetes or high blood pressure, by the way, need to have their doctors keep a watchful eye on how their kidneys are functioning over time. If the kidneys don’t work right, you could die.

Sante Global’s Arginine Infusion supplies your body with arginine, an important amino acid which uses nitric oxide to help open up your blood vessels, releasing more oxygen throughout your system while boosting your cardiovascular system. Arginine may help improve a person’s renal function, as well as slow down the progression of renal disease and age-related chronic renal failure.  

 

Arginine Infusion is available as a supplement powder with a berry blend taste, making a tasty drink that’s good for you. Delivering many important benefits to your body, Arginine Infusion works to improve your overall health, including your renal function.

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.

What are antioxidants? [Infographic]

Friday, March 21, 2014 1:06:06 PM America/Chicago

Antioxidants: we know they’re good for us, but what are they and why are they so important?

 

Antioxidants are chemicals in your body that neutralize free radicals. Free radicals are the result of food breaking down in your body, as well as exposure to smoke, pollution and UV radiation from the sun. With too many free radicals in your body, you’re at risk for developing heart disease, cancer and other harmful diseases.

 

So basically, antioxidants help rid your body of harmful cells that can cause life threatening illnesses.

 

To combat these diseases and to get rid of those free radicals, consuming foods, vitamins, and drinks that contain antioxidants is highly recommended. You can also take supplements that contain antioxidant properties, such as arginine, to ensure and/or assist in the neutralization of your body’s free radicals.

 

Some well-known foods that contain antioxidants include green tea, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. However, these are just a few examples of antioxidant-rich foods.

 

For more foods that contain high levels of antioxidants, as well as some interesting facts about antioxidants, check out the infographic below:

Get The Vitamin-C Intake You Need With Arginine Infusion

Monday, March 17, 2014 8:07:45 AM America/Chicago

Why do we need Vitamin C? Well, it’s essential for healthy living. It helps us build collagen—not for lip implants, mind you, but for our body’s structural material. In other words, Vitamin C is needed for our bones, skin, and blood vessels. Without it, we’d wither away. Do you want inflamed gums, scaly skin, and painful joints? No, of course not.

You’ve probably heard lots of people insist that you get “antioxidants.” Did you know Vitamin C is an antioxidant? Nice. It’s good for your heart, your blood, and, for pregnant women, your baby’s development in the womb.

 

As you probably know, Vitamin C is typically associated with eating oranges. Indeed, many fruits and vegetables supply your body with the vitamin. Strawberries, tomatoes, and green peppers are good sources of Vitamin C.

 

Sante Global is a company offering a product called “Arginine Infusion,” which is a powder that gets mixed with water to be taken as a health supplement for heart health and more. The tasty “berry blend” contains many valuable vitamins, including 100% of your daily Vitamin C needs. Specifically, one scoop of the powder gives you 60mg of Vitamin C. It also nourishes your body with Vitamin D, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin B12.

 

Depending on your daily food and drink intake, you may not be getting the necessary supply of vitamins your body needs to function optimally. Sante Global’s Arginine Infusion is a convenient way to take in Vitamin C and other beneficial vitamins for healthy living.

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.

L-Arginine and Fatty Liver Disease

Tuesday, February 25, 2014 3:51:25 PM America/Chicago

L-arginine is one of the essential amino acids made in the body, but also can be found in some foods like whole grains, soybeans and nuts. It supports the immune system and also changes ammonia into urea. There is additional data that shows l-arginine may be helpful in treating fatty liver disease by increasing blood flow to the liver.

 

Fatty liver disease, or hepatic steatosis comes as either alcoholic fatty liver disease or non-alcoholic and there are more cases of the non-alcoholic type, which refers to a buildup of lipids in the liver. There are usually no symptoms of non-alcoholic hepatic steatosis, but occasionally there is some weight loss and fatigue. Brandon Dotson of the website Livestrong.com says, “Over time, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, can lead to inflammation and scarring of you liver, according to the Mayo Clinic.”

 

There are a number of risk factors for developing fatty liver disease, and some of them are, high cholesterol, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, and high triglycerides. As there is generally nothing symptomatic about non-alcoholic hepatic steatosis, the best way to test for it is with a blood test or test of the actual liver tissue.

 

Dotson goes on to say, “People with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease normally have reductions in blood flow to the liver, which inhibits the organ from receiving enough nutrients and oxygen to reverse the condition.” A study with rats at the University College London in the UK showed that rats taking l-arginine every day for a total of 12 weeks, had a significant increase in blood flow to the liver. There is as yet no data with human subjects.

 

So l-arginine shows a great deal of promise in many areas of health. But as always, please consult your healthcare professional before taking any supplements.

Beef Up at the Gym with L-Arginine

Monday, February 17, 2014 2:32:35 PM America/Chicago

If you hit the gym to work out, you might benefit from introducing L-Arginine into your bodybuilding regimen.

L-Arginine is an amino acid that is found in certain foods such as whole wheat, nuts, seeds, red meat and fish. It also comes in the form of Arginine Infusion, a supplement available from Sante Global.

In order to grow your muscles, your body needs to utilize protein, and that’s where L-Arginine comes in—it helps synthesize most proteins. The helpful amino acid also promotes fat metabolism and encourages the release of growth hormone. Those who are looking to tone-up their muscles should consider adding L-Arginine to their daily intake because it helps reduce the fat stored underneath the skin and promotes muscle growth—a win-win combination.

L-Arginine has also been found to treat high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, and even erectile dysfunction. Hey now! Well here’s the deal: it serves as a precursor for the vasodilator nitric oxide. By taking L-Arginine, you’re helping to widen your blood vessels by relaxing the muscles of their walls. That, in turn, increases blood flow to your muscles during workouts. 

An increased blood flow helps reduce muscle damage and promote healing. Bodybuilding can be pretty stressful on the body, so L-Arginine counterbalances the tough exercises that are tearing your muscles apart so they’ll build back up longer and stronger. The amino acid also captures free radicals and improves cell effectiveness in your immune system.

 

Long story short, L-Arginine has multiple benefits to a person’s body, especially someone who is putting in the time and effort to build their body so it’s leaner-yet-bigger, muscular and more attractive.

Are You Getting Enough Folate (Folic Acid)?

Tuesday, February 11, 2014 8:57:34 AM America/Chicago

Sante Global’s Arginine Infusion supplement contains folate, also known as folic acid.

Folate has numerous health benefits as it aids in bodily functions such as cell repair and amino acid metabolism. In fact, folate has also been shown to help prevent obesity, some cancers such as colorectal cancer, and heart disease.

If you are pregnant, your unborn child’s brain and spinal cord need folate to develop properly. Women should also be aware that folate helps prevent cervical cancer.

Folate is needed for your body to produce red blood cells, and plays a role in manufacturing your body’s protection (in the form of white blood cells) against potential problems. Folate also helps protect a person from anemia.

A healthy heart is vital to a person’s everyday life, and folate performs an important role—it helps remove homocysteine, a toxic compound that can lead to artery damage if not eliminated from the blood. High homocysteine levels interfere with collagen production, which makes up the base of bone tissue—and can be linked to osteoporosis in postmenopausal women.

Folate has also been known to help reduce depression and keep the brain functioning at optimal levels. It helps serotonin production, elevating mood and acting as a mild antidepressant.

Foods rich in folate include leafy green vegetables like spinach and asparagus, as well as cereals, eggs and dairy products.

Sante Global’s Arginine Infusion supplement can be taken orally, mixed with water, with a typical serving providing 105% of a person’s daily folate suggested requirement—that way you can ensure you’re getting enough folate every day to stay healthy.

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 Lower Your Blood Pressure

Tuesday, January 28, 2014 8:48:54 AM America/Chicago

High blood pressure—ugh. It’s not a good thing. Also known as “hypertension,” high blood pressure is a common disease in both men and women in the United States. Unfortunately, studies show that over 70% of American women and 50% of men over the age of 70 have it.

Though hypertension can occur at any time in a person’s life, since it doesn’t have overt symptoms, it typically becomes a problem later in life. Over time, high blood pressure messes with a person’s blood vessels that normally supply oxygen and nutrients to all parts of the body. Long-term high blood pressure can lead to health problems with the heart, brain, and kidneys, among other body parts.

A nutritional supplement known as Arginine can help fight against hypertension in the body. When taken, the supplement produces nitric oxide, a simple gas made of nitrogen and oxygen. Nitric oxide helps regulate cellular functions. Specifically, it regulates the tone of the endothelium, the layer of smooth cells lining the inside of a person’s blood vessels. Endothelial cells, when dysfunctional, can cause spasms or constrictions of the blood vessels, leading to hypertension, so it’s important to keep them functional. Initial studies around the world seem to indicate Arginine is a natural supplement that helps people dealing with high blood pressure.

How does a person get Arginine in their system? Sante Global makes a powder supplement called Arginine Infusion. Scoop some of the berry-flavored powder into water, stir it, and drink it up daily.

As a cardio health supplement, Arginine Infusion is helping people lead a healthier life.

The Benefits of Taking Arginine Infusion in Powder Form

Wednesday, January 22, 2014 1:27:57 PM America/Chicago

L' Arginine helps keep people’s hearts healthy by creating a constant flow of Nitric Oxide in the blood, reducing your blood pressure in the process.


A single serving of Arginine Infusion contains 5 grams / 5,000 of L-arginine and 1 gram / 1,000 mg. L-citrulline. Each serving also includes resveratrol, or red wine extract, and Vitamin D3 to support overall cardiovascular health. You take a 10.3 gram scoop of Arginine Infusion with 4-8 ounces of water, and this may be taken twice per day.

 

If you take two scoops a day of Arginine Infusion powder, that’s 20.6 grams. In pill form that would be twenty or so humongous pills—not ideal. For those who have a hard time swallowing giant pills, it makes much more sense to take a supplement in powder form. Furthermore, powder is easy to ingest when it’s mixed with a liquid.

When you take a pill or capsule, you’re stuck with a certain dosage, but powder formations allow you to fine-tune how much you ingest depending on your different daily needs. Some days you may feel like you need more, and others less. Powders can be specifically measured to your personal preferences. They’re practical.

To get the benefit from Arginine Infusion, the powder form is ideal. It’s made in America by Sante Global, and you get 30 servings (309 grams) of powder per order. Plus, with the “berry blend,” it tastes good when added to water. Combining the powder with water makes for a delicious drink that will help feel better and able to function better in daily life.

What Causes a Blood Clot?

Monday, January 20, 2014 10:21:09 AM America/Chicago

A blood clot, or thrombus, forms when a blood vessel becomes damaged and sticky blood cells bond together to prevent bleeding. This is a natural response and we all develop clots from time to time, when we cut ourselves or fall and get bruised. But when blood clots form in arteries and block blood flow to tissues and organs there can be serious damage to the surrounding area. When blood clots break away from the area in which they have formed, this is called an embolus, and this kind of blood clot can create other more dangerous issues, like strokes and heart attacks.

 

Causes


One cause of blood clots is when arteries narrow as their walls thicken and harden, (also known as hardening of the arteries or atherosclerosis), and blood flow is blocked. These arteries are prone to injuries and when they tear, blood clots may form, cutting off oxygen to the brain and heart.

 

Women who take oral contraceptives run the risk of developing blood clots and the risk is much higher if smoking is involved.

 

An irregular heartbeat, or arrhythmia, can cause blood to pool in one of the heart’s chambers, which may then become a clot and there is a possibility this embolus will travel to the brain.

 

A family history of thrombosis may also mean a proclivity to forming blood clots.

 

And of course, lack of mobility due to injury, or a lack of exercise can cause a blood clot. These may form in the legs and are known as deep venous thrombosis, or DVT.


Prevention


There are several ways to prevent a blood clot from forming. Get enough exercise and don’t smoke, or quit if you already do. Taking supplements like L-Arginine, may also help to prevent clots from forming. Know your family’s medical history and eat a heart-healthy diet, keeping your cholesterol under control. Live a healthy lifestyle and you will keep your risk of developing blood clots down considerably.

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.

Alzheimer’s Disease: Risk Prevention

Monday, January 13, 2014 1:44:13 PM America/Chicago

Alzheimer’s seems to be more and more prevalent every year and almost all of us know a family that has been affected by the unforgiving disease. The devastation of mental deterioration is frightening and at this time, there is no proven way to prevent it. But there are some things you can do to reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s, and knowing you have a little control over this debilitating illness with simple lifestyle choices should be a big relief.

 

There has been some evidence linking heart disease to Alzheimer’s, so keeping your heart healthy is one place to start. A regular routine of exercise, moderating cholesterol and blood pressure are all helpful. Also, a good diet is key. The well-known Mediterranean diet is a good one for the heart as it emphasizes healthy fats; fish high in Omega 3’s, lots of vegetables and whole grains. These foods are good for brain health as well and should be plentiful. If you cannot get all the prescribed vitamins and nutrients from your diet, add supplements to fill in the gaps.

 

Brain calisthenics are also a good way to keep your brain active and healthy. Such activities include doing crosswords, reading books and magazines, cards and other games, good conversation, and even watching certain kinds of television. Anything that uses your brain, makes you think, calculate, be creative and inventive, works wonders at lowering your risk for Alzheimer’s.

 

Finally, a robust social life is essential. Any kind of dementia, including Alzheimer’s can be very isolating, and not letting yourself get out of touch, spending time with friends and family, are all healthy ways to stay engaged in the world.

 

Following these tips will help reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia and can even help slow the progression of these diseases once you are diagnosed with them. Alzheimer’s need not be the scourge it seems to be for a long life well-lived. Take some control over your life in areas where you have control, and make healthy choices for yourself and those you love.

Managing Your Cholesterol

Thursday, January 9, 2014 8:26:02 AM America/Chicago

It is important to treat your whole body when looking towards achieving maximum health for yourself, and managing cholesterol should be at the top of the list as it is present in every cell in your body. Cholesterol is a fat-like substance made in the liver and too much of it in your arteries and bloodstream can lead to heart disease and greater risk for high blood pressure and stroke.

 

There are 2 types of cholesterol: low-density lipoproteins (LDL), or “bad” cholesterol, and high-density lipoproteins (HDL) or “good” cholesterol. These 2 types need to be in balance for good health. A simple blood test will tell you and your doctor what your cholesterol levels are. Lowering your LDL levels and increasing your HDL levels are prescribed.

 

As the body makes its own cholesterol, taking in more with the foods you eat should be something you monitor carefully. Cholesterol is found primarily in animal products such as whole milk dairy, meats, and eggs. So if you must eat dairy keep it to low fat dairy foods and stay away from saturated and trans fats, especially red meats. Foods to eat to lower your overall cholesterol and increase your HDL are fatty fish (mackerel, salmon, and tuna), soy, nuts, high fiber foods like veggies and fruits, whole grains like oatmeal, quinoa, and brown rice, and mono and unsaturated fats that are found in both foods and supplements. Our L-arginine and Omega 3 supplements will help with this.

 

But cholesterol also increases from bad lifestyle choices, such as smoking, being overweight, and not exercising. So you must make some changes and hard choices to bring your cholesterol down.  Walk briskly for 30 minutes every day if you can, but at least 5 days a week. Stop smoking. Nowadays there are many ways to go about that and the basic truth is that if you really want to quit, you will. And make better food choices to bring your weight down.

 

Choice is the keyword here and that is in your control. And you can optimize your health and manage your cholesterol by choosing wisely. Speak with a professional about  this and together you can find a diet and exercise plan that works for you.

What Are Amino Acids?

Monday, December 30, 2013 9:56:23 AM America/Chicago

The organic compounds that are the basis of and synthesize proteins are called amino acids. Proteins and amino acids are life’s building blocks. There are at least 50 known amino acids but only twenty are concerned with proteins. And within those twenty are three categories of amino acids:

 

  • Essential  
  • Non-essential
  • Conditional     

 

Essential amino acids are not produced in the body, so therefore must be obtained from foods or supplements. They include L-arginine, L-hystedine, L-isoleucine, L-leucine, L-lysine, L-methionine, L-phenylalanine, L-thyronine, L-tryptophan, and L-valine.

 

Non-essential amino acids are made in the body, and they include L-alanine, L-aspargine, aspartic acid and glutamic acid.

 

Conditional amino acids are needed when there is extra stress or illness present and they are L-cysteine, L-glutamine, L-glycine, L-ornithine, L-proline, L-serine, and L-tyrosine. Therefore, conditional amino acids can be considered essential under certain circumstances.

 

Amino acids can be taken either in one supplement, or individually, depending on what ails you. But if you are going to take supplements it is helpful to know that better absorption can be obtained when adding vitamins C and B6 to the mix. Also, please note that amino acids should be taken without food, on an empty stomach.

 

 Amino acids help keep the body energized and repair cells and tissues.

 

Some foods that contain amino acids are all meats, especially red meat, eggs, and dairy products. If you are vegetarian or vegan, it is good to know that soy is a complete protein and has amino acids.

 

Amino acids are a necessary part of life and are essential to the growth and repair of our tissues. As such, it is important you have enough intake.  If you feel you are falling short in this area, you should consider taking Arginine Infusion, which is a blend of needed amino acids.  For more information, on the benefits, please check out our benefits page

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.”

What is Arginine?

Wednesday, December 11, 2013 9:51:50 AM America/Chicago

Sante Global makes products that contain arginine, an amino acid that’s involved with many functions in the body.

 

Recently, arginine as a dietary supplement has gained popularity for its possible heart benefits. Once ingested into the body, arginine converts into nitric oxide which helps blood vessels relax and improves circulation. Some people have reported that arginine supplements improved their symptoms of clogged arteries, chest pain, and coronary artery disease.

Arginine also has other benefits to the average person; it aids in the healing of wounds, helps kidneys remove waste products from the body, and maintains proper immune and hormone functions.

Some men have found arginine helps improve blood flow to their penis, helping them treat erectile dysfunction.

 

Arginine was first isolated in 1886, and has been studied since then. In 1932, scientists learned that it’s needed to create urea, a waste product your body creates to get rid of toxic ammonia.

Some of the signs your body may not be producing enough arginine naturally include poor wound healing, hair loss, skin rash, and constipation. People with protein malnutrition and excessive ammonia production or lysine intake may not have enough arginine.

 

Arginine triggers your body to make protein and has been studied for wound healing, bodybuilding, and enhancement of sperm production (spermatogenesis).

 

Sante Global’s Arginine Infusion is a heart health drink that promotes total body health by creating a constant flow of nitric oxide in your blood. Athletes appreciate the product, as do people who want to have a better quality of life with better circulation.

How L-Arginine can Help Athletes

Wednesday, December 4, 2013 8:20:22 AM America/Chicago

Too many of us suffer from poor circulation. The blood inside of us isn’t flowing around like it should be, causing us cold feet and hands, and other problems. 

If you’re an athlete, you understand that circulation is important to everyday life. Blood is responsible for carrying oxygen and nutrients into tissues, as well as removing waste products and carbon dioxide from them. Marathon runners, for instance, need good circulation in order to accomplish their running goals, which can be intense.

Sante Global makes a supplement called Arginine Infusion. It contains L-arginine, which helps support nitric oxide formation. That, in turn, leads to healthy dilation of blood vessels, circulation and blood flow.

Do you participate in sports that involve a lot of movement, such as volleyball, skiing or soccer? Taking a supplement like Arginine Infusion can help boost your cardiovascular system and overall health. It can give you “the edge” you’re looking for when it comes to athletic competition.

When the nitric oxide in the supplement opens up your blood vessels, more oxygen is released throughout your system. Having more oxygen helps make you feel better, quicker, and allows you to push your body even more.

Maybe you feel threatened by a competitor who seems to be a tad faster than you? Or perhaps you’re getting older, and your circulation isn’t what it used to be? Either way, it could be that your poor circulation is causing you to lose confidence in your athletic abilities.

Why not try a supplement like Arginine Infusion, and experience its circulatory benefits?

The Top 5 Ways to Prevent Heart Disease

Thursday, November 14, 2013 2:38:19 PM America/Chicago

 

Although heart disease is the leading killer of both men and women in the United States, it is often labeled as an unknown or silent killer, as many people who suffer from it have minor or unrecognizable symptoms. Because women can have very different symptoms from men, heart disease is often diagnosed too late, or in some cases, not at all. 

 

There are ways to prevent the onset of heart disease while you’re still healthy. The proper diet, lifestyle, and exercise can greatly lessen the chances of heart disease taking over your life.

 

 5 ways to Prevent Heart Disease:

 

1. Proper Exercise - Exercise is a major factor in the successful prevention of heart disease. Walking at least 30 minutes a day, at least 3 times a week consistently, is a great way to remain healthy and strengthen the heart.

 

2. No Smoking - If you are a tobacco smoker, it is necessary to stop smoking in order to prevent it from affecting your heart. If you’ve never smoked, it is best to keep it that way. Smokers have a significantly higher risk of getting heart disease than non-smokers. By narrowing the blood vessels, nicotine makes the heart work harder to pump blood through the body. Studies have found that even non-smokers who are consistently around smokers, are in danger of inhaling second hand smoke. So stay clear of the tobacco products as much as possible.

 

3. Heart Healthy Diet - Eating a nutritional diet is one of the best ways to prevent heart disease. Foods low in cholesterol, fat, and sodium, are a part of a heart healthy diet plan. It is good to consume foods rich in healthy fats like omega 3. Salmon is one of those foods rich in omega 3 fats, and olive oil is also a great addition to a healthy eating plan. Steer clear of unhealthy fats, such as, saturated and trans fats. Red meats, deep fried foods, and many pre-packaged items are foods that should be taken off of your list.

 

4. Regular Check-Ups - Visiting the doctor at least once a year, for a physical exam, is another effective prevention method. Getting regular check-ups can help to prevent heart disease and many other health conditions. Finding signs and symptoms ahead of time can make a real difference in preventing and reversing the disease.

 

5. Maintain a Healthy Weight - Maintaining a healthy weight is one of the simplest, yet most challenging ways to prevent heart disease. If you find it difficult to eat healthily and exercise, seek counsel from your doctor who may have suggestions and referrals to a dietician or nutritionist that can help lessen the challenge.

 

Lastly, consider helping your heart by taking natural supplements.  For example, Arginine Infusion supplements from Sante Global can improve your cardiovascular health, especially when you take it in accordance with the aforementioned recommendations.

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.

The Importance of Human Growth Hormone [Infographic]

Thursday, November 7, 2013 9:30:12 AM America/Chicago

You’ve probably heard of the term “Human Growth Hormone” or “HGH” as it has become pretty popular in pop culture and society. But you may not be sure what it is, and what it actually does for us.

HGH is a hormone produced by the body’s pituitary gland. It spurs growth in children and teens. Some people think it will keep them looking and feeling young. HGH helps regulate body composition, body fluids, muscle and bone growth, sugar and fat metabolism, and, possibly, heart function. In other words, it’s an important hormone that serves many functions.

In the 1980s, a synthetic HGH was developed and approved by the FDA for specific uses in children and adults. Children born small, with certain syndromes affecting development, were often given HGH to help them grow better. Adults used HGH to battle short bowel syndrome and/or muscle-wasting disease associated with HIV/AIDS. And those with pituitary tumors who had a natural deficiency used synthetic HGH to help themselves develop somewhat normally.

These days, HGH is used by many athletes and active people who want to build muscle and enhance their performance. Since HGH levels naturally decrease with age, HGH is often seen as an anti-aging substance that will help people look and feel younger. There is enough supporting evidence to make increasing your levels a worthwhile endeavor, if it is something  you feel you need.

Sante Global’s chief product, Arginine Infusion, can increase a person’s HGH levels. If you’re looking to repair, rejuvenate and revive your body, consider natural products from Sante Global.

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.

Joint Pain: Causes, Challenges & Cures

Friday, October 18, 2013 3:05:40 PM America/Chicago

Pain within joints can be brought upon for a variety of reasons and is very common. Some of the more common reasons are inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis, old age, excessive workouts or trauma. Damage to joints can make it hard to accomplish day-to-day activities and even limit your mobility. The severity of joint pain can vary, depending on the person’s case. It can range from mild to debilitating, and acute to chronic.

 

Whether the joint pain stems from an inflammatory disease or from accidental trauma, the discomfort and challenges that are faced on a daily basis can take a toll on the body. Swelling and redness can emerge sporadically or continuously, sometimes in a specific area or sometimes in various joints. The pain can cause fatigue and can limit the body’s endurance to complete simple, regular activities. Depression and anxiety are also common side-effects due to chronic joint pain.

 

There is hope for helping to eliminate joint pain. Visiting your physician to get a diagnosis is the first step in helping to treat your joint pain. Your healthcare provider will be able to steer you in the right path whether it is an antibiotic, anticonvulsant, physical therapy or other forms of treatment.

 

Some natural supplements are also available to help alleviate the symptoms and side-effects of joint pain. One such supplement is L-Arginine, which is made from all natural ingredients that boosts the overall health of the body. Nitric Oxide (NO) plays a huge role in the supplement. Nitric Oxide has been coined the “Miracle Molecule” due to its ability to relax blood vessels, improves circulation and boosts HGH production which preserves bone density.

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.

The Importance of Healthy Blood Pressure [INFOGRAPHIC]

Friday, October 4, 2013 3:36:18 PM America/Chicago

At great length, we've covered the array of health benefits provided by L-Arginine. However, it's good to thoroughly understand why keeping it in check is important. When your subconscious mind understands what is necessary for a happy and healthy life, it's easier to make the ID and the EGO agree.

What is Blood Pressure?

When you visit the doctor, you'll often hear your blood pressure number, and whether that's good or bad, but you don't really learn about the boundaries and limits of it all. The biggest question most people have is about the difference between Systolic and Diastolic blood pressure readings. Systolic is the higher number, and diastolic is a lower number. Systolic pressure measures when the heart is contracted, while diastolic is taken just before it contracts.

What is Considered "Normal" Blood Pressure?

What is normal and what is too high? It all comes down to what pressure normal for your body type, compared to what pressure an average healthy person has.

When the heart muscle contracts, it produces pressure of blood upon the walls of the vessels, this is your blood pressure.

A normal blood pressure occurs when everything is working properly, and the heart isn't exerting excess energy. When you produce adequate (but not excessive) blood pressure, that is a normal, healthy state.

What is “High” Blood Pressure?

High blood pressure is the sign of your heart working too hard. Though most symptoms are myths, as its mostly a symptomless condition (a silent killer). If you wait for symptoms, you're only a ticking clock; check your blood pressure often, and never skip an annual physical.

To learn about the importance of keeping your blood sugar normal and not too high, browse through this infographic below!

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.

How Sante Global Can Help Diabetics With Circulation Issues

Thursday, September 19, 2013 8:54:56 AM America/Chicago

People with diabetes often have problems with blood circulation in their body. Diabetics have to watch their diet, because it’s very easy for their blood sugar levels to rise quickly, and when that happens, sugar sticks to cells lining the blood vessel and arterial walls, causing them to swell. Over time, these walls become less elastic, which means the routes your blood would normally take to properly flow through your body for “normal” circulation get narrowed, hardened or blocked.

In essence, too much quickly consumed sugar is a bad thing for a diabetic because it messes up the “highway” the blood travels inside the body. Oftentimes, diabetics suffer from bad circulation in their legs and feet because the blood can’t flow as easily and freely as it normally would.

 

Honestly, poor circulation is not a good thing; it can lead to sores, infection, amputation (yikes!), stroke and heart disease. Do you want any of those problems? No way!

Some of the key ways you can avoid circulation problems as a diabetic are things you probably don’t want to do, but you need to do: quit smoking, eat healthier, and exercise regularly.

Additionally, Sante Global sells a product called L-Arginine, which is an advantageous product for diabetics. It’s a supplement made from natural ingredients that you could take to increase blood flow through your body. L-Arginine includes nitric oxide, which opens up blood vessels, allowing more oxygen to flow throughout your circulatory system. You should try it if you’re presently dealing with circulation problems due to diabetes or other factors, and enjoy the results.

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

L-Arginine Truths: Six Myths Answered

Friday, July 26, 2013 8:20:10 AM America/Chicago

 

Have you ever wondered the truth about health supplements? A mix of information about supplements was misunderstood or passed down incorrectly over time, leaving us with a few myths. Myths are untrue facts that many believe to be true, solely because so many people believe them.

 

Here are the true answers to common questions and warnings about health supplements.

 

  • Supplements that promote muscle growth are steroids

False. Many muscle-boosting supplements produce Creatine, which is not like a steroid; your body produces it naturally. Steroids are strong drugs that increase testosterone levels to enhance performance. When taken in excess, steroids are very dangerous and addicting.

  • You cannot gain muscle while you burn fat

False. Dieting and supplementing that diet with L-arginine promotes muscle growth, using Creatine. This helps muscle build while you burn fat.

  • You can get the same amino acids by eating certain foods

Conditional. You could, but you’d have to eat food in portions 3 or 4 times the average size. Just because you can, doesn’t mean you have to.

  • Erectile Dysfunction is a natural part of a man’s anatomy as he ages

False. Many men live full, long lives without experiencing erectile dysfunction. Supplements like L-arginine exist to promote healthy blood flow to all vital organs. This helps treat ED, making life easier for the patient.

  • You can take supplements to promote muscle growth and fat burn even when you don't work out

False. Nothing will ever replace a healthy diet and a good workout. Supplements help the process, but they don't do the work for you.

  • Our bodies produce enough of the semi-essential nutrients and amino acids, supplements are a waste of money.

False. Not everyone’s body works correctly. Your sedentary level and your diet contribute to the production of certain vitamins and amino acids. If you’re suffering from an arginine deficiency, a supplement could make your life much easier.
