Arginine promotes heart health by enhancing your body’s natural ability to produce nitric oxide, which is basically like “Viagra for your muscles”.
A nutritional precursor to nitric oxide, the amino acid L-arginine promotes heart, vascular, and reproductive health, and aids in wound healing. Without enough L-arginine and nitric oxide, blood flow to your organs and extremities can be reduced.
Traditional L-arginine supplements are absorbed and metabolized quickly, making it necessary to take these products multiple times a day. But this Thorne Perfusia-SR® L-arginine supplement provides sustained-release arginine, which helps you maintain optimal levels over 24 hours when used twice a day. Products that stimulate the production of nitric oxide often cause a “flushed” feeling due to increased widening of blood vessels. With this sustained-release formula, you’re much more unlikely to experience a “flush.” However, even if you do, it’s not harmful.
Two capsules contain 1000mg L-Arginine complexed with Time-Sorb®, a time-release matrix. Suggested use is to take 2 capsules two times daily or as recommended by your health-care or performance professional.
