Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) and ProArgi9

by synergy

From time to time I receive email from customers from all walks of life and I’d like to share their questions and response with relation to Proargi9. Below is a response by Synergy Experts from a client inquiring about ProArgi9 results from someone having Peripheral Arterial (Vascular) Disease or PAD.

ProArgi-9 Plus could certainly be considered for its overall cardiovascular supporting actions.

One study showed benefits of L-arginine in PAD:

A pilot study of L-arginine supplementation on functional capacity in peripheral arterial disease

A randomized, placebo-controlled evaluated the efficacy of L-arginine for people with peripheral artery disease (PAD). Eighty people with PAD enrolled in the study and were randomly assigned to consume 0, 3, 6, or 9 grams of L-arginine daily in three divided doses for 12 weeks. There was a statistically significant reduction in hematocrit for those who consumed L-arginine; no changes in claudication (pain and fatigue in the arms and legs) were noted. With the 3 g/day supplement, there was a trend to increase walking distance by twelve weeks, althouth this change did not reach significance. There was also a trend to improvement in walking speed for all subjects supplemented with L-arginine, also not statistically significant. This study indicates that L-arginine supplementation may be beneficial for people with PAD. Further studies are needed to investigate these possible benefits.
