One of the main ingredients in Cardio Cocktail is L-arginine. According to Dr. Louis Ignarro, Nobel Prize winner, L-arginine is essential to cardiovascular health. Cardio Cocktail has 5 grams of L. Arginine which has many different important functions within the body.
It is involved in the metabolism of ammonia which is generated from the breakdown of protein. It is used to transport nitrogen in muscle metabolism. It stimulates the pituitary gland to produce and secrete human growth hormone which helps in muscle building. L-arginine has a positive effect on the immune system, stimulates thymus activity and helps the body heal from wounds.
Some research is shown that L-arginine increases male fertility by increasing sperm production and motility. No wonder it’s included in Cardio Cocktail and it’s in many of the supplements used by bodybuilders.
Using Cardio Cocktail before a work out is an excellent way to get good blood supply to the muscle. Greater blood supply to muscle tissue would lead to more nutrients being available to the muscle allowing an optimal environment for growth.
One of the largest muscles in the body is our heart. You might say it’s the largest working muscle in show business. Cardio Cocktail supports the heart through the nitric oxide pathway. This allows for an increased cardiovascular blood flow which carries essential nutrients and oxygen to this most important muscle in your body, the heart.
Some evidence shows that arginine may help improve blood flow in the arteries of the heart. That may improve symptoms of clogged arteries, chest pain or angina, and coronary artery disease. However, there currently is no data on how the long-term use of arginine affects cholesterol or heart health.
L-arginine has other benefits as well, as mentioned earlier it promotes wound healing. Scar tissue that forms during wound healing is made up primarily of arginine-rich collagen. Insulin production, glucose tolerance, and liver lipid metabolism are impaired if we are deficient in L-arginine. This amino acid can be produced by the body, however as we age the ability to produce nitric oxide slowly declines. Supplementation with L-arginine will improve the body’s ability to keep nitric oxide at optimal levels within the body.
