Formula Information

Arginine 800 mg Oral Capsules are a solid dosage form that consists of two gelatin or vegetarian shells enclosing the medication. This design allows for easy swallowing and ensures a precise dosage of the active ingredients. Arginine is a semi-essential amino acid that plays a crucial role in various physiological functions.

Arginine is primarily known for its role in the synthesis of proteins, but it also contributes to other vital processes. It aids in wound healing, helps remove excess ammonia from the body, stimulates the immune system, and promotes secretion of several hormones, including insulin and growth hormone. Arginine is also a precursor for nitric oxide, a compound that helps dilate blood vessels and improve blood flow.

Due to these properties, Arginine 800 mg Oral Capsules can be used to treat several disease states. They can help manage conditions related to poor blood flow, such as coronary artery disease, clogged arteries, and angina. They may also be beneficial for individuals with erectile dysfunction, as improved blood flow can enhance sexual function. Additionally, arginine supplements can support wound healing and immune function, making them useful for individuals recovering from surgery or those with weakened immune systems.

It's important to note that while arginine supplements can be beneficial, they should be used under the guidance of a healthcare provider, as they can interact with certain medications and may not be suitable for everyone. Side effects can include gastrointestinal discomfort, allergies, and changes in blood pressure. Therefore, it's crucial to discuss any pre-existing conditions or current medications with your healthcare provider before starting arginine supplements.

If you are taking any of these medications, it's crucial to monitor your blood pressure regularly while taking arginine.

How Does it Work

A small arrow pointing down

This design allows for convenient and easy swallowing, and provides a precise dosage of the active ingredients. The primary active ingredient in this formulation is Arginine, an essential amino acid that plays a crucial role in various physiological functions.

Arginine works by being converted in the body into a chemical called nitric oxide. Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to open wider for improved blood flow. This mechanism of action is particularly beneficial in treating conditions related to blood flow, such as cardiovascular diseases, erectile dysfunction, and high blood pressure. Arginine also stimulates the release of growth hormone, insulin, and other substances in the body.

Furthermore, Arginine is used in the body to make proteins. By increasing the level of Arginine in the body through these capsules, it can help heal wounds, support the kidneys in removing waste products from the body, and maintain immune and hormone function. It is also used for heart and blood vessel conditions including congestive heart failure (CHF), chest pain, high blood pressure, and coronary artery disease.

It's important to note that while Arginine is generally considered safe for most people when taken appropriately by mouth, it can cause some side effects such as abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea, gout, blood abnormalities, allergies, airway inflammation, worsening of asthma, and low blood pressure. Therefore, it's crucial to take this medication under the supervision of a healthcare provider.

As compounding pharmacists, we can customize this formulation to meet the unique needs of each patient. This includes adjusting the dosage, changing the form of delivery, and even combining multiple medications into a single dose. We work closely with healthcare providers to ensure that each patient receives the most effective treatment for their specific condition.
