Seeking Health Arginine
Arginine is an important amino acid found in plant and animal protein and also formed in the body under normal physiological conditions. However, in certain conditions the body cannot produce enough Arginine to meet its needs for tissue repair, immune function, nitric oxide formation, and other crucial roles. Supplementation with Arginine by Seeking Health can become essential in order to meet the body’s increased demand for Arginine during periods of increased physical stress or illness.
Arginine benefits include :
• Nitric oxide synthesis and Depression:
Nitric oxide, a molecule produced in all body tissues, serves an important role in the cardiovascular, immune, endocrine, and nervous systems in the body. Arginine is needed to make nitric oxide, a compound that relaxes your blood vessels through the process of vasodilation. Vasodilation increases blood flow, which is why arginine is used for erectile dysfunction, but more blood to your brain means more oxygen and more nutrients that can combat certain causes of depression, as cited in "Human Biochemistry and Disease." Nitric oxide also protects your cardiovascular system from atherosclerosis. A lack of arginine may contribute to inadequate blood flow to your brain and certain types of migraine headaches that have been linked to depression.
• Wound repair:
The stress associated with tissue trauma, including surgery, burns, and sepsis conditions,increases demands on the body to supply Arginine for wound healing. Supplements of L-arginine during these times can improve nitrogen balance and speed healing.
• Immune system support:
Arginine can help modulate the immune system and reduce the incidence of post-operative infections.
Arginine by Seeking Health capsules contain L-arginine hydrochloride, a stabilized form . As a conditionally-essential amino acid, Arginine by Seeking Health can be helpful ensuring adequate intake to meet the increased demands of the body.
Suggested Use: 1 to 6 capsules daily.
About Seeking Health, the company
Dr. Ben Lynch, founder and Chief Medical Officer of Seeking Health, is a naturopathic physician. While majoring in Cell and Molecular biology at the University of Washington, Dr. Ben took a trip through the South Pacific and Southeast Asia that changed his outlook on traditional medicine, and his life.
During this trip, Dr. Ben hiked through the forests, mountains and coasts of Tasmania, worked a cattle ranch in the Outback of Australia, and volunteered with Mother Theresa in Calcutta. He lived in Fiji with a family having no electricity or plumbing, experienced the Himalayan Mountains of Northern India, worked a fruit orchard in New Zealand, and returned to America with an impression of a different form of medicine than he had ever experienced with his mainstream medical education.
This profound experience led Dr. Ben to Bastyr University, and he studied the Mind-Body Connection, Environmental Medicine, Functional Medicine, and Epigenetics.
Dr. Ben saw the huge need for people to obtain foundational nutrients, and Seeking Health was born. Without foundational nutrients, biochemical dysfunction occurs and causes symptoms. Doctor after doctor and person after person do not understand the absolute requirement for our bodies to have the tools to maintain function.
- • Without water, we die.
- • Without food, we die.
- • Without probiotics, we get digestive disorders.
- • Without multivitamins, we become depressed, fatigued and sick.
“If one supports their bodily systems, especially their digestion and mental health, with pure, highly absorbable, well-formulated nutrients, the ability to remain healthy and vital significantly increases. We want your foundation rock solid and we provide the tools to do so.”
-Dr. Ben Lynch, founder of Seeking Health
Seeking Health believes that the root cause for many health conditions and supplements stem from ineffective digestion, environmental exposures, poor diet, and lack of a healthy social outlet and inlet.
- • Once digestion is restored and optimized with the best probiotics, digestive enzymes, stomach acid and intestinal repair nutrients, one is able to absorb nutrients from foods and high quality multivitamins.
- • Once environmental exposures are reduced, one is able to reduce toxic burden which then frees up nutrients to work in promoting health and preventing disease.
- • Once diet is optimized, nutrients flood in, energy increases, blood sugar stabilizes and the immune system balances.
- • Creating a social outlet and inlet allows the parasympathetic nervous system to regain control over the reactive sympathetic nervous system, allowing countless nutrients to be used proactively and in a protective manner instead of being wasted on producing stress hormones.
