Arginine is classified as a semiessential or conditionally essential amino acid, depending on the developmental stage and health status of the individual.
The team at In Good Health, LLC understands that nutrition functions in a synergistic manner. We believe that no single nutritional ingredient works alone. But, if they did and you wanted to determine what the single most important nutrient was, Arginine would certainly be in the top 5.
Arginine is proven to reduce the risk of heart disease.
Since 1901, a Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine has been awarded every year to brilliant men and women around the world.
Many recipients of this prestigious honor for outstanding achievement spent decades conducting complex laboratory and clinical research.
Over the years, Nobel Prizes for medical achievements have been awarded for extraordinary discoveries, including:
Insulin (1923) to …
Vitamin K identification (1943) to…
Penicillin (1945) to…
Heart catherization (1956) to…
Magnetic Resonance Imagery (MRI) technology (2003)…
Each of these discoveries have advanced the health and vitality of mankind.
One of most significant medical discoveries ever awarded by the Nobel Assembly occurred in 1998.
The 1998 Nobel Prize in Medicine recognized a 3-man research team, Louis J. Ignarro, PhD, Robert F. Furchgott, PhD, and Ferid Murad, MD, PhD, for their identification of “nitric oxide as a signaling molecule in the cardiovascular system.” The actual discovery of Nitric Oxide by these three men occurred in the late 1980s. However, the Journal of Science named nitric oxide the “Molecule of the Year" in 1992; 6 years prior to the award being given.
The amazing benefits of l-arginine extend to cardiovascular and overall health, including:
Lowering blood pressure;
Reducing blood stickiness in patients with high cholesterol;
Improving blood flow in those with significant coronary artery disease;
Reducing symptoms associated with claudication (pain, usually in the extremities due to a lack of blood flow);
Relieving congestive heart failure and improved stamina;
Controls Bladder Inflammation;
Aids in Fat loss:
Improves athletic performance;
Improves immune function;
Enhances Kidney function;
Increases mental capacity;
Improves nutrient assimilation;
Improving the painful condition known as Raynaud’s phenomenon (fingers becoming pale and turning blue in cold temperatures); and reversing impotence.
When it comes to cardiovascular health, L-arginine seems to know exactly where it is needed most.
Tens of thousands of clinical research studies have shown that supplemental L-arginine supports the production of Nitric Oxide, a potent substance that dilates blood vessels and allows more blood to flow through them. It has even been shown to reverse the development of heart disease, including atherosclerosis (the most serious form of heart disease).
Atherosclerosis is caused by “bad”cholesterol and high blood pressure which leads to elevated levels of homocysteine, LP(a), fibrinogen and insulin.
Unfortunately, endothelial vasodilator dysfunction may be well established before symptoms like angina appear. Everyone is vulnerable to endothelial vasodilator dysfunction, but those with a history of heart disease are at greatest risk. Those who are overweight, have diabetes, are experiencing erectile dysfunction, high blood pressure, arthritis, high cholesterol, and high triglycerides are at great risks of heart disease and must preserve vasodilator activity with L-arginine.
L-Arginine; Natures Heart and Health Protector
Dr. Louis Ignarro learned that Nitric Oxide comes from the conversion of L-Arginine to Nitric Oxide. Since his discovery, thousands of research trials have shown that L-Arginine is one of the most important nutrients we can take.
Although the direct health improvements come from Nitric Oxide, L-Arginine is the precursor to this “Miracle Molecule.” In fact, Nitric Oxide is the molecule that brings about the myriad of health benefits.
Ok, with all these wonderful health benefits, you have to be asking three questions;
1) How much L-Arginine do I need to take? Well, the dosing can range from 3-24 grams per day. However, research has shown the benefits of L-Arginine are dose dependent..to a point. That’s right, the “American way”, if two are good then four are twice as good, does not work with L-Arginine. The best dosing for overall health is 6-9 grams per day, taken 10-12 hours apart, which is what COR-Restor recommends.
2) What is the best form of L-Arginine? This could be a really long answer, but I will keep it short. Obviously the quality of L-Arginine is important, and that is why, at In Good Health, Inc., we demand the highest quality possible in all of the nutritional ingredients that go into COR-Restor. Our L-Arginine, as well as all other ingredients, are tested 3 different times for purity and quality.
3) You may be asking, "If L-Arginine is so great, why not 6-9 grams of L-Arginine per day?" The answer is simple: L-Arginine does convert to Nitric Oxide. However, this conversion process occurs rather quickly, and nitric oxide does not last very long.
Most pre-workout products, and even other health products, contain L-Arginine in order to achieve the vasodilation properties of nitric oxide. Unfortunately, for some unknown reason they do not include the other necessary ingredients to extend the life of nitric oxide. COR-Restor has been painstakingly formulated to provide the longest possible nitric oxide production levels. Without our formulation, you would need to take L-Arginine every 2 hours, around the clock, to experience the optimal health benefits of the arginine-nitric oxide pathway.
