Arginine plays an important role in cell division, the healing of wounds, removing ammonia from the body, immune function, and the release
of hormones.The benefits and functions attributed to oral supplementation of L-arginine include:
Precursor for the synthesis of nitric oxide (NO) Non-L-arginine derived NO can be generated by the nitrate-nitrite-nitric oxide pathway that is
monitored through saliva testing.
Reduces healing time of injuries (particularly bone)
Quickens repair time of damaged tissue
Helps decrease blood pressure in clinical hypertensive subjects NO-mediated decrease in blood pressure is influenced by both the L-
arginine-dependent nitric oxide synthase pathway and non-L-arginine or alternative pathway through nitrate-rich foods such as beets and
What is Xylitol?
- It's naturally sweet with no strange aftertaste
- Looks & tastes like sugar
- 40% fewer calories & 75% less carbs than sugar
- Glycemic index of Xylitol is 7, sugar at 60-65
- Safe for diabetics (no negligible insulin change because it’s absorbed slowly
- Inhibits growth of bacteria that causes middle ear infections in young children
- Studies in Finland show it may help in reversing bone loss
- Reduces insulin resistance caused by over consumption of sugar (insulin resistance is a key factor in diabetes, cholesterol & triglyceride
levels, hypertension and increased risk of heart disease)
What is Citrulline?
You can obtain citrulline from food or your body can manufacture it from ornithine, another amino acid you obtain from food, through a
biochemical process called the urea cycle. This cycle helps rid your body of ammonia, a waste product of protein digestion. After your
digestive system metabolizes citrulline malate into citrulline, enzymes in your liver cells convert it into another amino acid called arginine,
and other enzymes then convert arginine into nitric oxide in a process that also produces new citrulline molecules. Nitric oxide is a
vasodilator that can help protect you from cardiovascular problems by lowering blood pressure and improving blood flow to your organs,
according to experts at the University of Southern California. Although your body can make cirtulline in this way, research suggests that
consuming extra citrulline may have significant health benefits.
What is d-Ribose?
Ribose is used to improve athletic performance and the ability to exercise by boosting muscle energy. It has also been used to improve
symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia, and coronary artery disease. Ribose has been used to prevent symptoms such
as cramping, pain, and stiffness after exercise in people with an inherited disorder called myoadenylate deaminase deficiency (MAD) or
AMP deaminase deficiency (AMPD deficiency). Ribose has also been used to improve exercise ability in people with another inherited
disorder called McArdle's disease.
Grape Seed Extract?
Resveratrol may be able to fight hardening of the arteries, cancer and coronary heart disease, according to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering
Cancer Center. The Linus Pauling Institute adds that resveratrol may have antioxidant properties, anti-inflammatory effects and the ability to
keep platelets in the blood from sticking together to form clots. It also may be able to increase longevity. reports that resveratrol
may be able to help lower blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetics, improve memory and increase joint mobility.
