L-arginine Plus™ incorporates an ingredient that sets its formula apart, that ingredient is called AstraGin™. Why is this important? AstraGin™ is a proprietary formulation that has been demonstrated throughout several studies to significantly promote and improve absorption of amino acids, glucose, and vitamins. AstraGin™ increases absorption through the regulation and paralleled alteration on both the protein and mRNA expression levels of the Na+/glucose cotransporter 1 (SGLT1) gene.
Simply put, AstraGin™ enhances absorption of:
In an in vitro study, AstraGin™ was shown to significantly increase the absorption of amino acids, glucose, and vitamins when compared to a control group. The in vitro study on AstraGin™ is similar to the in vitro study published in J. Agric. Food Chem., Vol. 55, No. 5, 2007 by T.C. Chang, etc. that was sponsored and funded by NuLiv Science. The AstraGin™ in vitro study will be available for review after its patent application is finalized.
In an in vivo study, AstraGin™ demonstrated to significantly decrease the glucose level and improve the plasma insulin concentration in AstraGin™ treated animals for 1-month as measured by oral glucose tolerance tests.
In a human study, AstraGin™ demonstrated to significantly enhance the post-exercise glycogen storage in a 24 hr period in the treated subjects when compared to the control group as measured by muscle biopsy.
AstraGin™ is the first product of its kind. It is the only natural food ingredient that has shown in cell, animal, and human studies to significantly improve the absorption of many essential life supporting and health promoting nutrients into human cells. Some of these nutrients include amino acids, glucose, and vitamins.
AstraGin™ allows a greater amount of these nutrients to pass from the bloodstream into the cells. By creating better bioavailability, the absorbed nutrients can better improve overall health, fitness, energy, endurance, sense of well being, blood sugar balance, and lean body mass. AstraGin™ is the perfect food and nutraceutical ingredient to be included in dietary supplements.
AstraGin™ is a proprietary, all natural plant based formulation derived from highly purified Panax notoginseng and Astragalus membrenaceus using a pharmaceutical grade extraction and processing technology.
By increasing "transporter" and "mRNA" chemicals in the body, AstraGin™ helps your body determine how much or how less amount of specific nutrients are absorbed into the intestinal cells. The purpose behind the creation of AstraGin™ was to support and promote health and well being.
