Thorne Research Perfusia-SR Product Information
Sustained-release L-arginine supports cardiovascular function, wound healing, and immune function and is a biological precursor to nitric oxide.* L-arginine is a semi-essential amino acid involved in multiple areas of human physiology and metabolism.* L-arginine significantly affects endocrine function and helps regulate the release of neurotransmitter chemicals, insulin, glucagon (which has the opposite effect of insulin; i.e., it raises blood sugar), and growth hormone.* However, one of L-arginine's most compelling contributions to human physiology is its role as a biological precursor of nitric oxide. *The vascular endothelium (lining of the arteries) creates nitric oxide from L-arginine, resulting primarily in blood vessel relaxation.* This property may be important to maintaining good vascular health, heart health, reproductive health, and protection against oxidative damage.* Maintaining the natural, healthy functions of the vascular endothelium is dependent upon an adequate supply of L-arginine being available to these cells. *As mentioned above, the conversion of L-arginine to nitric oxide is responsible for these functions by making the endothelial cells more resistant to oxidative damage and adhesion by otherwise harmful substances.* Like most amino acids, L-arginine potentially functions as a building block of proteins; however, its presence also appears to support wound healing.* L-arginine is absorbed and metabolized by the body very quickly, which usually necessitates taking it frequently throughout the day. Sustained-release Thorne Research Perfusia-SR attempts to maintain an optimal level of L-arginine over 24 hours with suggested twice-daily use.
