L-Arginine _Nitric Oxide_ and L-Citrulline- Multiple Benefits Powered By Docstoc
					The scientific community, and more specifically the cardiovascular scientific
community, is getting really excited about the health benefits that are being
discovered by those who are choosing the dietary supplements L-Arginine and
L-Citrulline. Compared to other amino acids that have been being used as dietary
supplements, the use of L-Arginine and L-Citrulline is a relatively recent development.
However, widespread use of this supplement has yielded a number of health benefits,
some that are so profound that cardiovascular disease (the number one killer of
Americans) which may have before seemed imminent in some patients, can be
completely reversed by the eliminations of the pre-cursor symptoms of the disease.
The potential benefits of these supplements are just now being tapped into. With more
years of continual amazing results and continued modification, the health
improvement potential benefits are impressive and even exciting.

Increase stamina and energy levels

L-Arginine and L-Citrulline's effects on improving the production of nitric oxide lead
to better blood flow. Better blood flow means that the heart does not have to work as
hard to do its job. When the heart is not stressed, we have a greater amount of energy.
We also have improved stamina when nitric oxide levels are at their best because it
takes less effort to tire the heart. The heart is a large determinant of what we are and
are not able to do physically without pain or exhaustion. When we can keep our heart
healthy we are able to do more towards improving overall health because we have the
energy and the stamina needed.

Muscle mass

L-Arginine and L-Citrulline are amino acids that aid in the production of nitric oxide.
Nitric oxide has recently gained a lot of popularity and hype as a supplement for
different types of people; one of the biggest groups being bodybuilders. There are
claims that L-Arginine and L-Citrulline supplements can help build muscles faster
and stronger. There are many supplements with nitric oxide that are targeted
specifically towards bodybuilders. As is the case with any drug or supplement, it is
important to take L-Arginine and L-Citrulline in their recommended dosage levels.
Too much L-Arginine or L-Citrulline can be dangerous as can the neglect for the need
to obtain a proper balance of vitamins, minerals and amino acids.

Improved immunity

Improved blood flow allows for the body's natural defenses to do their jobs more
efficiently. If the blood is better able to carry and distribute out immune system's
blood cells throughout the body, we can fight off infections before they become an
annoying or even serious health issue. The increased flow of healthy blood cells can
wash out the system of contaminants which translates into faster healing times as
well.
Lower bad cholesterol levels

Lowering bad cholesterol levels helps improve cardiovascular health. Blockage in the
arteries makes the job of the heart a lot harder. The harder the heart has to work to
pump blood throughout the body the more strain the heart has to endure and the less
efficient it will work. Eventually prolonged levels of cardiovascular stress can lead to
a number of heart problems including heart attack. L-Arginine and L-Citrulline not
only help to lower bad cholesterol levels in their assistance o the production of nitric
oxide, but they also aid in the increase of positive or good cholesterol levels.
