L-Arginine HCl / L-Lysine HCl 7/7% 90 mL Pump
Arginine hydrochloride is a synthetic derivative of the essential amino acid L-arginine. Arginine hydrochloride may be used as an aid to the detection of growth hormone deficiency in conditions such as panhypopituitarism, pituitary dwarfism, chromophobe adenoma, postsurgical craniopharyngioma, hypophysectomy, pituitary trauma, and in problems with growth and stature. The drug has also been used in the evaluation of pituitary function in gigantism and acromegaly Further, arginine injection is used to treat high ammonia concentrations in patients with urea cycle disorders. Arginine tablets, which are dietary supplements, have been used to improve exercise capacity in patients with stable angina pectoris.1 Arginine injection was originally approved by the FDA in February 1973.
L-lysine is an essential amino acid, meaning it cannot be synthesized in the body and must be ingested daily via the diet or via supplementation. The normal US diet results in ingestion of >= 5 g of this amino acid daily. Orally and topically, L-lysine is commonly used to prevent and treat the clinical symptoms of herpes simplex labialis. In 1992, the FDA determined that no orally administered active ingredient was recognized as safe and effective for OTC use to treat or relieve the symptoms of cold sores. Thus, L-lysine products are marketed as nutritional supplements under DSHEA versus approved OTC drugs. L-lysine is also used orally as a protein-supplement by athletes for improving athletic performance; L-lysine is thought to enhance anabolic processes which promote muscle tissue accretion. Because L-lysine may be important in calcium absorption and homeostasis, some authors have suggested a potential use of this amino acid in the treatment of osteoporosis.
Arginine is a precursor of nitric oxide, which is a potent vasodilator with antiplatelet activity. Nitric oxide has been shown to induce vasodilation in patients with atherosclerosis.
L-lysine is an essential amino acid, and contributes to protein- and enzyme-synthesis. Amino acids reduce catabolism. L-lysine may be involved in the cellular absorption, regulation, and utilization of calcium.
These properties aide in the combined treatment of Erectile Dysfunction.
