L arginine is amazing, this we know. Its relationship to nitric oxide makes it a key element in the fight against cholesterol and hypertension, as well as heart disease. But new research is pointing out how arginine and nitric oxide might also play an important role in breathing and asthma.

Asthma and Arginine

Recent research published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine found that ‘late-onset obese asthma patients had lower levels of the amino acid arginine and higher levels of an arginine metabolite called ADMA , which interferes with NO production.’

“In healthy people, a balance is maintained between arginine and ADMA ensuring normal levels of airway NO,” Holguin says.

“But in obese, adult-onset asthma, the lower arginine and higher ADMA reduces airway NO levels. This finding is promising because it suggests that increasing arginine could restore NO levels and its positive effect on airways.” This might translate into patients having less wheezing and shortness of breath.

The study goes on to say that taking arginine alone won’t do the trick to alleviate symptoms of late-onset asthma in association with obesity and decreased exhaled nitric oxide. In order for arginine to offer the greatest benefit, in this case, it must be taken with citrulline, which ultimately enhances arginine production.

Arginine and Vasodilation

The magic behind the amino acid arginine is it’s ability to widen the arteries, or airways in this case – a medical term called vasodilation. Arginine is a vasodilator, technically speaking. Because it has the amazing ability to dilate blood vessels, it can improve blood circulation. It’s simple, wider arteries means smoother and more efficient blood flow. Efficient blood flow means lower blood pressure. It also means that essential nutrients and oxygen are making their way to every single cell in the body, and not being obstructed by plaque build-up or blocked arteries.

If you suffer from high blood pressure, high cholesterol, are feeling lazy or, according to new research, have asthma, give Cardio Juvenate Plus a try!
