Arginine is an amino acid that plays an important role in the healing of damaged tissues.
Arginine is an amino acid, which plays an important role in the synthesis of proteins and cell division.
Many studies have linked arginine to enhanced immunity, the improved release of the human growth hormone (HGH), greater muscle mass, increased ability to burn fat, rapid healing from injury, increased sexual potency, increased mental alertness, increased bone density and improved removal of ammonia from the body.
Arginine’s role in stimulating the body’s release of the anti-ageing human growth hormone known as HGH is one of its most interesting for rejuvenation. Youthful levels of human growth hormone have been shown to slow down and often reverse the ageing process. Falling HGH levels result in added body fat, reduced muscle tissue, slow healing, lack of elasticity in the skin and reduced immune function.
Taken before sleep, arginine maximizes its ability to stimulate the release of HGH. According to the biochemist Mohamed Gad, "The demonstrated anti-aging benefits of l-arginine show promises greater than any pharmaceutical or nutraceutical agent ever previously discovered," (Source: Journal of Advanced Research (2010) 1, 169–177). Furthermore, unlike pharmaceutical drugs, which are expensive and have dangerous side effects, it is a completely natural substance.
The body's ability to synthesise the non-essential amino acids, such as arginine, and to utilise all amino acids can be adversely affected by an individual's advancing age, overall health, the presence of infection, physical trauma, stress and compromised nutrient absorption capacity. Supplementing with arginine can, therefore, significantly improve overall health and wellbeing.
Arginine also facilitates the release of insulin, glucagon, and prolactin. It is the physiological precursor of diverse biological compounds such as nitric oxide, polyamines, proline (essential for the production of collagen), glutamate, creatine (an energy source needed by cells), agmatine and urea (used to remove toxic ammonia from the body). As a booster of immunity, arginine stimulates the thymus and promotes lymphocyte production. This may be an important key for arginine's ability to promote healing of burns and other wounds. Arginine has a positive effect on cerebral as well as systemic circulation.Buy Lumity
