Arginine is a semi-essential amino acid that has shown promise in the prevention of atherosclerosis (blockage of the arteries). L-arginine is pure 100% free form arginine and is the precursor for endothelium-derived nitric oxide (EDNO).
In a healthy endothelium (inner wall of a blood vessel), nitric oxide (NO) will keep vessels pliable and elastic, dilate (open up) blood vessels keeping blood flowing smoothly, relax blood vessels, keep platelets and white blood cells calm and prevent them from sticking to the vessel wall, prevent oxidation, slow plaque growth, suppress atherosclerosis and melt away plaque that already exists.
Arginine it makes its way into the bloodstream and circulates throughout the body. As it enters the endothelial cells that line the smooth muscle walls of blood vessels, an enzymatic reaction occurs that converts arginine to nitric oxide. As the levels of arginine rise in the body, so does your production of nitric oxide, which in turn can have a dramatic and positive effect on your cardiovascular health.
L-Arginine will help lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol and triglycerides, improve diabetes, improve sexual function, reduce blood clots and strokes, improve congestive heart failure, improve wound healing, improve liver and kidney function, improve memory and cognitive functions, increase human growth hormone (HGH), improve muscle growth and performance, and much more.
L-Citrulline is an amino acid which promotes energy, stimulates the immune system, and detoxifies ammonia, which damages living cells. It is closely related to L-Arginine since it is converted into L-Arginine, which in turn increases the production of nitric oxide.
Vitamin D3, or calciferol, is a fat-soluble vitamin and it is normally produced in the skin by the action of sunlight, but is also obtained from certain foods. It aids in the absorption of calcium, helping to form and maintain strong bones. The major biologic function of vitamin D is to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus.
Is a powerful fat-soluble antioxidant that protects cell membrane from environmental pollution and from dietary and metabolic free radicals. It prevents the oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids and cholesterol. By decreasing LDL cholesterol and plaque deposits on the walls of the arteries, it is one of the most important nutrients in reducing probability of heart attack, stroke and atherosclerosis.
Vitamin C (50% ascorbic acid & 50% Ester C)
Prevents the formation of free radicals that initiate artery blockage by damaging artery walls. Vitamin C is essential in the formation of collagen and protects against blood clotting and bruising, and promotes the healing of wounds and burns.
Enhances circulation and assists in blood formation, carbohydrate metabolism, and the production of hydrochloric acid, which is important for proper ingestion. positive effect on energy, growth, normal appetite, learning capacity and is needed for muscle tone on the intestines, stomach, and heart.
Omega EFA's (essential fatty acids) are vital to good health, but they must be acquired through our diets or supplementation because the body is unable to manufacture essential fatty acids itself.
Extensive and strong evidence has shown that omega-3 fats can be very highly effective at helping to:
- Prevent heart disease and stroke
- Prevent sudden cardiac death (SCO)
- Prevent & reverse arrhythmias (irregular heart beat)
- Prevent cancer-breast, ovarian, colon, prostate and pancreatic
- Prevent diabetes
- Fight depression
- Fight inflammatory diseases
- Fight weight gain
- Fight eczema
- Fight arthritis
- Fight memory problems
- Fight allergies
- Fight lupus
- Fight ulcerative colitis
- Fight learning disorders—dyslexia, ADD, ADHD
- Fight violent behavior
DIGITAL PULSEWAVE ANALYZER AND L-ARGININE
The Meridian Digital Pulsewave Analyzer can be used to non-invasively measure cardiovascular function in a patient. Studies have shown that even one week after taking L-Arginine there can be a significant increase in large artery compliance resulting in improved blood flow. A study shows that a moderate dose of sustained-release L-arginine can improve endothelial function and blood pressure. (Altern Med Rev 2006;11(1):23-29)
Using the DPA's ability for pulse wave analysis, you can show how supplements and treatments positively impact their health. Thanks to the Digital Pulsewave Analyzer's software and database, you can easily keep a history and track these changes over time.
The Digital Pulsewave Analyzer technology has been compared to the brachial artery ultrasound technique and found to be of equal diagnostic value in assessing endothelial function.
