ProArgi9 Plus – Wound and Bone Healing

Although not originally declared as part of the High Desert Study parameters, wound healing was greatly enhanced for the participants. Following is more information on the ability of nitric oxide in HEALING:

Arginine is also a powerful immune stimulant and wound-healing agent. At one time, this was thought to be exclusively due to its growth hormone releasing properties; but arginine is a powerful immune stimulant and wound healing agent even in the absence of significant growth hormone release. It is now known that arginine has other important benefits as a precursor of nitric oxide.

Nitric oxide is usually thought of as a toxic component of smog, but recent scientific discoveries have shown it to be a biological compound of immense importance. Nitric oxide is the epithelial-derived relaxing factor, the chemical secreted by the lining of human blood vessels that causes the blood vessels to dilate, and thus determines what parts of the body receive extra blood flow, and what parts will receive less in response to other biological signals. Adequate nitric oxide also helps to insure that this allocation of blood flow is accomplished without undue increases in blood pressure. Scientists have searched for years for the chemical that causes this blood vessel dilation. They were not expecting that the chemical would be a gas, although nitric oxide dissolves easily in water. The search for this chemical was made even more difficult by the fact that the nitric oxide is destroyed by hemoglobin within about three seconds of the time it is released in the blood vessel lining.

Nitric oxide now also appears to be the neurotransmitter responsible for converting short-term memories to long-term memories in the brain. This is another ability that often declines with aging.

The body also concentrates high levels of nitric oxide in the fluid around a wound. The exact function of nitric oxide in wound healing is unclear at this time.

In some hospitals, small amounts of nitric oxide are being mixed with the oxygen received by patients with certain lung disorders. The results of this new treatment appear very promising.

Overall, the role of nitric oxide in the human body is a major area of current medical research. Important new discoveries about the role of nitric oxide are being made every month. The human body manufactures nitric oxide from only one nutrient: arginine.

The remarkable wound healing enhancement of arginine appears to be due to its growth hormone releasing properties as well as its role as the body’s sole source of nitric oxide. There are a number of reports in the scientific literature about the wound healing properties of arginine and the usefulness of arginine before and after surgery. Arginine can greatly accelerate the healing of broken bones and other accidental wounds.
