Perfusia-SR

sustained-release L-arginine to support cardiovascular health, nitric oxide production, and optimal blood flow


when sufficient L-arginine is present:

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 healthy cardiovascular health.
