L-Arginine by Metabolic Maintenance can supply several important body functions to support overall health. Supplying your body with the right nutrients can be difficult- not only with identifying which supplement is best for you‚ but also making sure what you take can help. Arginine‚ an amino acid‚ is an important chemical building block precursor to the neurotransmitter nitric oxide‚ and vasodilation. Nitric oxide has the opportunity to allow blood vessels to relax and promote circulation. With this relaxed state of blood vessels‚ L-arginine may be helpful in allowing for improved blood flow in the arteries leading to the heart. It may be used in body processes including wound healing as well as helping to remove waste from the kidneys.
The L-form of arginine is one of the 20 most common natural amino acids‚ and was first isolated over a hundred years ago. L-arginine may also help in maintaining the immune system and hormone functioning. Along with this‚ damaged tissue may continue with repair of itself at a more natural rate‚ and due to nitric oxide relaxation‚ healthy blood pressure rates may be supported. This fine product from Metabolic Maintenance provides 500 mg of L-arginine‚ in an easy to consume capsule form that is both vegetarian and preservative-free.
Each 100 capsule bottle of L-Arginine by Metabolic Maintenance should last for approximately 1-2 months at the recommended dosage of 1-2 capsules a day‚ best taken between meals

Overall Rating for L-Arginine 500 mg - 100 Capsules

For Migraine Headaches?
No one knows for sure what is happening when migraine occurs. One theory is that some migraines are the result of blood vessels constricting (getting narrower). L-Arginine seems to be a helpful vasodilator (makes blood vessels open wider). Another theory is that some migraines start off with blood vessels dilating. This supplement would be likely to aggravate such migraines. Another theory is that some migraines begin with blood vessels constricting and then they dilate. Again this supplement might make them worse. This is why treating migraines requires some trial and error. Some neurologists can help you to make intelligent decisions about what to try first. According to the National Institute for Health "Taking L-arginine by mouth along with the painkiller ibuprofen seems to be effective for treating migraine headache. This combination sometimes starts to work within 30 minutes. But it’s hard to know how much of the pain relief is due to L-arginine since ibuprofen can relieve migraine pain on its own." http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/natural/875.html
