L-Arginine & Ornithine 500/250 mg - 100 Caps
 
Arginine and Ornithine combines two essential amino acids into one optimal supplement. Arginine is necessary for urea metabolism, a process that prepares toxic ammonia for safe excretion by the kidneys.  Ornithine is synthesized from Arginine and is a precursor of cityruline, proline and glutamic acid, and seems to enhance the effects of arginine. Both of these amino acids are popular with athletes and other active individuals.

L-Arginine is a conditionally essential basic amino acid involved primarily in urea metabolism and excretion as well as DNA synthesis. L-Arginine is a precursor of nitric oxide (NO) in the human body. In the 1990s, scientists discovered that not only is NO an essential compound that helps blood circulation, but it is important to normal sexual function in both men and women.

Insufficient blood flow is a major cause of incomplete erection in men. L-Arginine has been shown to improve blood flow to the genital area by dilating blood vessels and helping the penis to enlarge to its full capacity, thus increasing the size, hardness, and frequency of erections. For women, better blood flow makes clitoral and vaginal tissues more sensitive and responsive to sexual stimulation and helps increase the possibility of reaching orgasm.


Benefits include:

  • Is a precursor of nitric oxide (NO)
  • Promotes circulation resulting in improved blood flow
  • Stimulates the release of growth hormone
  • Improves immune function
  • Reduces healing time of injuries
  • Plays a role in the formation of bone and tendons
  • Increases muscle mass, while reducing body fat
  • Supports male fertility, improving sperm production and motility
  • Supports normal blood pressure
  • Improves vascular function for patients with angina
  • Helps recovery after heart attack
  • Helps prevent and treat cardiovascular disease
  • Helps reduce growth of cancerous tumor
  • Reduces Risk of blood clots and stroke

 L-arginine helps your body manufacture creatine, a protein that contributes to muscle mass and power, and also helps the body get rid of creatinine, the waste product associated with this process, making it popular with weight lifters. L-arginine is a vasodilator- it dilates the blood vessels, allowing more blood to pass through at once. That has the effect of lowering blood pressure and, in some cases, helping the body negotiate the arterial blockages that can come with conditions such as atherosclerosis. For certain patients, L-arginine can help reduce blood clots, especially in the legs.

The powerful effect of L-Arginine was illustrated in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study published in the British Journal of Urology International in which researchers evaluated the nitric oxide levels of 50 men with erectile dysfunction. The men were given either L-Arginine or a placebo for six weeks. Nine of the 29 men (31%) given L-Arginine reported a significant improvement in their sexual performance. These nine men had low nitric oxide levels at the start of the trial, but their levels doubled by the end of the study.
