L-Arginine has been shown to help improve blood flow throughout the body, and this helps to keep your heart healthy. This can also have benefits in decreased blood pressure, helps to open clogged arteries and makes them flexible once again, and can help to reduce the risks of blood clots and strokes. Arginine can also prevent episodes of chest pain, or angina, related to coronary artery disease.
There’s abundant evidence that L-arginine benefit men with erectile dysfunction. Health care practitioners widely recommend L-arginine supplements as alternative treatments for erectile dysfunction, or impotence, in men. In theory, L-arginine’s hemodilating properties can enhance blood flow to the genitals, thereby improving sexual response.
L-Arginine helps with your kidney and digestive health by helping your body to more effectively eliminate waste. Some problems caused by inactive body chemicals can be altered with the use of L-Arginine. It is possible that essential amino acids such as L-Arginine help the body to better produce these needed chemicals that help with kidney health as well as diabetes and other health problems.
L-arginine can help to relieve migraine headaches when they are used alongside ibuprofen, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug.
By dilating blood vessels, nitric oxide delivers more oxygen, blood and nutrients to working muscles. This not only effects energy levels, muscular volume and protein synthesis, it also leads to more fat burning.
There are other benefits of L-Arginine that can help in different ways. Among its many roles, L-Arginine also:
* Improves the overall health of the immune system
* Increases muscle mass, while reducing body fat
* Plays a role in the formation of bone and tendons
* Supports male fertility, improving sperm production and motility
* Helps reduce growth of cancerous tumors
* Reduces healing time of injuries
* Stimulatse the release of growth hormone
Helps convert fatty acids to energy, aiding in weight reduction.
L-lysine may be effective in decreasing some of the symptoms associated with angina.
In the liver, l-lysine converts to carnitine which helps your body burn fat. Because of this fat-burning ability, studies have shown that lysine in the diet may result in decreased levels of LDL (or bad) cholesterol.
L-lysine is one of the primary components of proteins. Therefore, it is critical for proper body growth particularly in children. Because it helps your body absorb calcium, l-lysine is also critical for growing bones and other tissues. Low levels of lysine may lead to failure to grow due to a protein deficiency.
Anxiety and Stress Reduction
Studies report that lysine can reduce stress and anxiety in a population that consumed very low levels of l-lysine rich foods.
Promotes skin health through increased collagen formation.
Herpes Simplex Virus
L-lysine may act as an antiviral by blocking the production of the Herpes Simplex Virus. Studies suggest that following a diet rich in lysine (or taking a lysine supplement), while not curing the virus, may prevent outbreaks of genital herpes and cold sores associated with the herpes virus. L-lysine may also help herpes sores heal faster.
Studies have shown L-Lysine to relieve migraines and other types of pain and inflammation.
Also supports the production of:
* Protein like enzymes
* Hormones (particularly hGH) and neurotransmitters
