What You should know before taking L-arginine plus

What is L-arginine plus

L-arginine plus is a chemical building block called an “amino” acid that is obtained from the diet and it is necessary for the body to make proteins. It is found in red meat, poultry, fish, and dairy products as well as can also be made in a laboratory and used as medicine. It is considered somewhat essential because it’s highly important for many functions yet usually present in low quantities, especially as someone gets older.

Many people use it for preventing the common cold, improving kidney function after a kidney transplant, high blood pressure during pregnancy (pre-eclampsia), improving athletic performance, boosting the immune system, and preventing inflammation and tissue death of the digestive tract in premature infants (necrotizing enterocolitis) and preventing slowing of growth of the baby within the uterus as well as used for heart and blood vessel conditions including congestive heart failure (CHF), chest pain, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart surgery, recovery after heart transplant, heart attack, and coronary artery disease. L-arginine plus is also used for recurrent pain in the legs due to blocked arteries (intermittent claudication), decreased mental capacity in the elderly (senile dementia), erectile dysfunction (ED), altitude sickness, nitrate tolerance, diabetes, diabetic nerve pain, kidney toxicity from cyclosporine, kidney disease, tuberculosis, critical illness, head and neck cancer, obesity, ovary disease (polycystic ovary syndrome), pressure ulcers, respiratory infections, sickle cell disease, stress, and male infertility.

It is the combination with a number of over-the-counter and prescription medications for various conditions. For example, used it along with ibuprofen for migraine headaches; with conventional chemotherapy drugs for treating breast cancer; with other amino acids for treating weight loss. Some people apply L-arginine plus to the skin to speed wound healing, healing of small rips of the anus, and for increasing blood flow to cold hands and feet, especially in people with diabetes. It is also used as a cream for sexual problems in both men and women. In the body, it is converted into nitric oxide, which causes blood vessels to open wider that has multiple benefits, such as improving heart and brain health.

The benefits of L-arginine plus

1. Improves Heart Health

Research shows that L-arginine plus is beneficial for lowering inflammation and improving the health of the cardiovascular system. For people with high risk factors for coronary heart disease, these supplements can be an effective measure for preventing a heart attack or stroke.

Some of the ways that it improves cardiovascular health include:

  • Helping to prevent high blood pressure (although findings have been mixed overall)and improve blood flow in people with clogged arteries (coronary artery disease)
  • lowering cholesterol and triglyceride levels and helping relieve congestive heart failure
  • Improving stamina, reducing symptoms associated with cut-off blood flow from the heart to the limbs (called claudication)as well as blood sugar.
  • It’s also commonly used for treating chest pains (angina pectoris) because of the effects of nitric oxide preventing blood clots (thrombosis) that cut off blood supply.

2. Improves insulin and glucose levels: L-arginine plus supplements improve the action of insulin, especially for high-fat diets and balancing insulin and glucose levels prevents carbohydrates from being deposited as fats. Studies have been conducted to show that it increases the sensitivity of insulin. Balanced blood sugar levels promote healthy metabolism of carbohydrates as well as the effects of its supplements on a blood clotting disorder reported an increase in insulin sensitivity.

3. Lowers inflammation and fights the effects of aging:

It’s have substantial free radical-scavenging abilities due to its effects on the enzyme called superoxide dismutase (SOD) as well as other antioxidant mechanisms that are commonly used in combination with antioxidants. It also positively affects both central nervous system and immune system functions.  It can even lower the presence of ammonia within the blood, which is why it’s sometimes used to treat people with metabolic problems and damage to the urethra where ammonia is excreted from the body.  Ammonia (ammonium hydroxide) is a product of the body breaking down proteins, and one cause of necrosis of tissues that can lead to cellular destruction and inflammation.

4. Healthy weight loss:It reduces fat mass and increases muscle mass which is known to increase the activity of insulin, which manipulates hormones that metabolize fats. It also increases strength for exercises, thus making it effective in a weight loss program and has also been proven to help increase muscle strength and mass in elderly people.

5. Boosts exercise performance, intensity and recovery:

It effectively improves blood flow, which means it helps bring nutrients and oxygen to muscle and joint tissues. This means with you can enjoy more of the many benefits of exercise, possibly at a higher intensity and with less pain by using it. It can increase heat and circulation to damaged joints or cold hands and feet, especially in people with complications from other health conditions like poor blood flow, arthritis or diabetes. It’s also been shown to help increase time to exhaustion among athletes and to increase tolerance to high intensity exercise.

6. Modulation of genes in fat metabolism:It inhibits deposition of fat by favoring the metabolism of fats to form muscle mass. It prevents the accumulation of fats and the development of muscle mass. It works by modulating the action of lipid metabolizing genes in the white adipose tissue and skeletal muscles.

7. Helps Treat Erectile Dysfunction and Infertility

L-arginine plus is involved in the process of proper cell replication in addition to enhancing blood circulation that L-arginine benefits for men include improving both sperm production and motility. Men who deal with cardiovascular problems tied to low levels of NO in the blood are more likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction and fertility issues, since an erection requires the relaxation of smooth muscles triggered by nitric oxide. High stress levels can lower the presence of L-arginine plus in the sperm production pathway, so overly stressed men can especially benefit from supplementing.

8. Improving recovery after surgery: Taking L-arginine plus with ribonucleic acid (RNA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) before surgery or afterwards seems to help reduce the recovery time, reduce the number of infections, and improve wound healing after surgery.

Possibly Ineffective by using it:

  • Kidney disease: L-arginine plus by mouth or intravenously (by IV) does not improve kidney function in most people with kidney failure or kidney disease but  taking it by mouth might improve kidney function and reverse anemia in elderly people with kidney disease-associated anemia.
  • Heart attack: Taking L-arginine plus does not seem to help prevent a heart attack and it also does not seem to be beneficial for treating a heart attack after it has occurs. In fact, there is concern that L-arginine plus might be harmful for people after a recent heart attack. Do not take L-arginine plus if you have had a recent heart attack.
  • Tuberculosis: Adding it to standard treatment for tuberculosis does not seem to help improve symptoms or clear the infection.
  • Sensitive teeth: Using a tooth paste containing arginine plus, calcium, and fluoride reduces tooth sensitivity when used twice daily.
  • Diabetes: Taking L-arginine by mouth seems to improve blood sugar control in people with existing diabetes. However, it is unclear if L arginine plus helps prevent people with pre-diabetes from developing diabetes.

Dose for Taking L-arginine plus:

In the morning and one each before and after working out L-arginine plus should be taken at least 3 times a day. The recommended dose is between 2 to 6 grams and this can be taken before working out to increase blood flow, thus increasing your energy. Mix it with water or your favorite fruit juice and consume immediately. Remember that 2 to 5 grams of l-arginine plus can be mixed with 150 ml of water or juice and should be consumed immediately. But L-arginine plus should be taken over a prolonged period if the user wants to enjoy the benefits and it should be taken all through the year to maintain lower body fat and muscle mass. Although l-arginine plus is effective, it might not produce the best results alone.

Different manufacturers have different concentrations of l-arginine plus in their products so it is advisable to read the nutrient quantities to know how much to take. When starting out this regiment, you can start with small doses and adjust as your body gets used to the supplement. For maximum efficacy, combine the supplement with an exercise regime.

Final Thought:

Finally, L-arginine plus appears to be safe for both male and female as well as children, although there’s not much research on the effects within these populations so it’s best to stick to a low dose or act your doctor. Everyone produces some L-arginine plus  on his or her own, but how much depends on factors like your age, inflammation level, condition of your heart and arteries, gender, diet quality, and genetics. It is also needed to say again that L-arginine plus is an amino acid that we obtain from our diets, especially animal sources of protein foods.
