Perfusia-SR, sustained-release L-arginine, promotes the production of nitric oxide in the arteries.* The vascular benefits include improved blood flow and maintenance of normal blood pressure.*

When sufficient L-arginine is present:

  • arteries relax, promoting optimal blood flow.
  • as arteries relax, already normal blood pressure can be better maintained.
  • erections occur in the normal course of intimacy.
  • supple, flexible arteries are better able to support good cardiovascular health.

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 is critical 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. Numerous studies have demonstrated that individuals with sufficient nitric oxide production by endothelial cells have the best opportunity to maintain healthy cardiovascular health. L-arginine is absorbed and metabolized by the body very quickly, which usually necessitates taking it frequently throughout the day.

Sustained-release Perfusia-SR, however, maintains an optimal level of L-arginine over 24 hours with suggested twice daily use.
