L-Arginine is a semi-essential amino acid. It's a building block of protein that performs many functions in the body. It is a known precursor of the gas nitric oxide (NO2). The body can't make it naturally and must come from the foods we eat.
Arginine can be found in nuts, seeds, peanuts, almonds and in chocolate and raisins. Symptoms of arginine deficiency include poor wound healing, hair loss, skin rash, constipation, and fatty liver.
Because Arginine is a precursor of nitric oxide, which causes blood vessel relaxation, evidence suggests that arginine may be useful in the treatment of medical conditions that are benefited by improved blood circulation, such as angina, atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease, erectile dysfunction, heart failure,
intermittent claudication/peripheral vascular disease, and vascular headache.
Arginine also stimulates protein synthesis and has been studied for wound healing, bodybuilding and enhancement of sperm production.
The benefits of oral ingestion of L-arginine
Precursor for the synthesis of Nitric Oxide (NO)
Stimulates the release of the most important anti-aging hormone in our body, the growth hormone.
Reduces adipose tissue body fat
Reduces healing time of injuries (particularly bone)
Alleviates male infertility, improving sperm production and motility
After the 1998 Nobel Prize was won for L-Arginine and Nitric Oxide research, there was a flurry of companies and supplements popping up in an attempt to capitalize.
The common thread I have seen is that almost all of these supplements are not formulated properly (they contain amino acids such as L-Lysine or sugars which compete and render the product useless for GH benefits), made from inferior products such as HCL, and are generally a waste of time. Arginine, even if properly formulated will be a waste of time and money if not taken properly.
Who is Dr. Ann De Wees Allen?
The World's leading Arginine researcher, Dr. Ann de Wees Allen, has been issued a patent on her safe and efficacious formula, and has been approved by the FDA and FTC for 15 claims. Her product has been used since 1983, and is now finally available to the mass market.
received the first glycemic patent ever awarded for her development of the low glycemic delivery system in L-Arginine. The methodology developed is proprietary, and involves a complex 32-step process to extract the non-competing properties from organic fruits.
Dr. Allen is the first woman scientist to have ever lectured at the Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic.
She lectured with Arnold on alternatives to steroids for athletes. There were about 60,000 people attending this event.
