Arginine Boost Injection
Arginine alone or in combination with other supplements and vitamins has been shown in peer-reviewed research to be of benefit in various medical concerns including libido, sexual function, erectile dysfunction, high blood pressure, bladder health, anxiety disorders, panic disorders, and obsessive compulsive disorders (OCD). Deficient levels of nutrients that are essential can prevent critical biological pathways. We, therefore, will at times make recommendations based on the goal of restoring you to balance. Additional benefits for some of these indications can be obtained from adjusting your Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, your inositol, Coenzyme Q10, Carnitine, or your zinc levels. In some instances we can use blood or urine testing to better advise you. These treatments often will work with other medications that you are on, and are not specifically designed to replace other therapies. In some cases, patients are able to be maintained on more modest dosages of their other therapies.
For those with increased fatigue we suggest checking your morning cortisol levels, your levels of iron, testosterone, adrenal male hormones like DHEA-S, and your thyroid. Sleep deprivation can drive these levels down, and lead to errors in diagnosis if you are suddenly sleep deprived before testing!
Arginine specifically helps with stress hormone reactions. In this way it can help modulate the real physical responses that trigger the feelings of anxiety that make the emotional component of anxiety and panic disorders so difficult to treat. For sexual function more data has been accumulated in men, but libido, arousal and lubrication in women can also be helped by arginine therapy. It is the improvement in tissue oxygenation and blood flow as the mechanism of action for these benefits.
Chronic low levels of arginine, has been shown to decrease the nitric oxide levels and contribute to the development of erectile dysfunction in men as reported in 2017 research of the American Society of Andrology and European Academy of Andrology. The use of arginine boost injections can therefore be preventative in some men, as well as therapeutic in others.
