In 1998, Dr Joseph Pendergast said, ‘L-arginine is an amino acid that benefits the body in a myriad of ways. We are now learning more about how l-arginine helps the body release important hormones, increases lean muscle mass, and boosts the immune system. We can’t ignore the power of l-arginine anymore’.
L-arginine is an amino acid responsible for the natural production of nitric acid. Nitric acid is essential to allow oxygen, nutrients in the cells of the blood to travel around every part of the body. It is implicated in every almost cellular response and health condition imaginable. This discovery led to Dr Pendergast being awarded the Nobel Prize for medicine. So, what are the benefits?
The Power of L-arginine and its Benefits
- Nitric oxide plays a critical role in our heart health because of the way it is utilized.
- Nitric oxide is a signalling molecule the body creates using the amino acids and nitrates in our food. As we age, our body begins to slow down the process of creating nitric oxide. But that does not mean we can’t improve the process of increasing nitric oxide within our bodies.
- Nitric oxide signals the brain to expand the blood vessels. This process enables the blood vessels to open wider and improves blood flow. By improving blood flow, increasing nitric oxide is a key to taking pressure off the heart as it pumps blood throughout the body. This not only helps our blood pressure but helps more oxygen and nutrients flow throughout the body.
- By opening the blood vessels, nitric oxide is a major contributor for the health of our hearts and overall health.
