Perfusia-SR - Thorne
Maintaining the natural, healthy functions of the vascular endothelium is dependent upon an adequate supply of L-arginine being available to these cells.* 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.* This is critical to maintaining good vascular health, heart health, reproductive health, and protection against oxidative damage.* Studies on Perfusia-SR show increased blood flow to the heart muscle and the extremities, maintenance of already normal blood pressure, and improved vascular elasticity.* A recent study demonstrated improvements in blood flow after Perfusia- SR supplementation in individuals with less than optimum heart health.* In another study, Perfusia-SR was given to 29 healthy volunteers for one week and significant support of their already normal cardiovascular health was observed.* 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.*
