Sustained-release L-arginine supports cardiovascular function wound healing and immune function* - and is a biological precursor to nitric oxide* L-arginine is a semi-essential amino acid involved in multiple areas of human physiology and metabolism. L-arginine significantly affects endocrine function and helps regulate the release of neurotransmitter chemicals insulin glucagon (which has the opposite effect of insulin; i.e. it raises blood sugar) and growth hormone.* However one of L-arginine's most compelling contributions to human physiology is its role as a biological precursor of nitric oxide.* The vascular endothelium (lining of the arteries) creates nitric oxide from L-arginine resulting primarily in blood vessel relaxation.* This property is critical to maintaining good vascular health heart health reproductive health and protection against oxidative damage.* Maintaining the natural healthy functions of the vascular endothelium is dependent upon an adequate supply of L-arginine being available to these cells.* As mentioned above the conversion of L-arginine to nitric oxide is responsible for these functions by making the endothelial cells more resistant to oxidative damage and adhesion by otherwise harmful substances.* Numerous studies have demonstrated that individuals with sufficient nitric oxide production by endothelial cells have the best opportunity to maintain already normal cardiovascular health.* In a large double-blind trial that observed male reproductive health issues 1.6 g L-arginine daily for six weeks resulted in improvement in reproductive health in those men with low nitric oxide metabolism.* Like most amino acids L-arginine functions as a building block of proteins; however its presence also appears to support wound healing.* Numerous studies show L-arginine supplementation benefits wound healing time and strength of the tissue in and around the wound during the healing phase.* Without adequate L-arginine (and subsequently nitric oxide) available to vascular endothelial cells arteries may not optimally dilate which can result in less than optimal blood flow to the organs and extremities.* L-arginine is absorbed and metabolized by the body very quickly which usually necessitates taking it frequently throughout the day. Sustained-release Perfusia-SR however maintains an optimal level of L-arginine over 24 hours with suggested twice-daily use.* Studies on Perfusia-SR show increased blood flow to the heart muscle and the extremities maintenance of already normal blood pressure and improved vascular elasticity.* A recent study demonstrated improvements in blood flow after Perfusia-SR supplementation in individuals with less than optimum heart health.* In another study Perfusia-SR was given to 29 healthy volunteers for one week and significant support of their already normal cardiovascular health was observed.*
