What the Heck is Arginine?

Posted by NutraBulk on

By now you may have heard of arginine, but what the heck is it? Well, arginine is gaining some traction as a potential treatment for heart issues which is notable because millions of Americans suffer from some variety of cardiovascular disease. Arginine shows up in foods such as seeds and nuts, grains and wheat, and fish and red meat. It helps to relax arteries, maintain your immune and hormone functions, assist your kidneys in removing waste from your body, and even support your body during the healing of wounds.

When arginine enters your body, it turns into nitric oxide which is a neurotransmitter that improves your circulation. It may also help reduce blood pressure in certain cases and help those who suffer from leg cramping and intermittent claudication to increase their walking distances. According to information from the Mayo Clinic “there is good scientific evidence that dietary supplementation with arginine may help people with coronary artery disease, angina, or clogged arteries, due to its effects on blood vessels.”

If you suffer from a condition that you think would benefit from an arginine supplement, discuss your options with your healthcare provider or reach out to our in-house nutritionist who is more than happy to answer your questions and provide you with suggestions for your situation. Our arginine products contain NO milk, egg, fish, peanuts, shellfish, soybeans, nuts, wheat, yeast, gluten, corn, rice, sugar, artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, or preservatives ensuring that it can be taken by anyone that needs it. Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed!
