Studies related to Endothelial Function and Arginine

Hemodynamic And Vascular Response To Resistance Exercise With L-arginine

Effect None
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 24 hours
Number of Subjects 17
Gender Male
Age Range 18-29
Body Types Overweight
Notes for this study:
Supplementation of 7g L-arginine prior to resistance training exercise failed to note significant differences in blood flow and pressure (a lone subset increased, although it was significantly lower at baseline; all other parameters were not influenced). Vascular resistance was unaffected.

Beneficial Effects Of A Long-term Oral L-arginine Treatment Added To A Hypocaloric Diet And Exercise Training Program In Obese, Insulin-resistant Type 2 Diabetic Patients

Effect Increase
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 2-4 Weeks
Number of Subjects 33
Gender Both Genders
Age Range 30-44, 45-64
Body Types Obese, Overweight
Notes for this study:
21 days of supplementation with L-arginine in persons with type II diabetes, in conjunction with a hypocaloric diet and exercise routine (also given to the placebo group), noted that supplementation was associated with more improvements in the adipokine, oxidative, and nitric oxide profiles of the body resulting in enhanced endothelial health. An increase was noted in superoxide dismutase.
