Argi+ is a proprietorial mix which is highly commended by Dr Murad – one of the three Nobel Prize for Medicine winners who discovered the amino acid L’Arginine.
Argi+ is the proprietary combination of L’Arginine put together by Forever Nutraceuticals – part of the Forever Living Products organisation. Argi+ contains both L’Arginine and also a range of super fruits (eg. pomegranate, red wine extract and grape skin which help support our bodily systems).
What is L’Arginine
L-Arginine is an amino acid that’s so potent, that scientists have referred to it as the “Miracle Molecule.” And for good reason, because our bodies convert L-Arginine into nitric oxide, a molecule that helps blood vessels relax and open wide for greater blood flow. This can help anyone engaging in exercise but also those who struggle with blood pressure issues.
Why is Argi+ better than pure L’Arginine? There are two key reasons – firstly, Argi+ tastes so much better than pure L’Arginine but also, the superfruits help and the high sources of vitamin C they bring are there to support the immune system. Vitamin C is critical because L’Arginine increases the oxygenation of the blood flow systems, muscles and organs and, of course, higher levels of oxygenation are associated with higher levels of free radical damage (think rust).
By adding a super cocktail of immune supporting and Vitamin C rich ingredients, the body has the resources to effectively handle the increase in oxygenation.
So, the side effect of L’Arginine is an increase in oxidation?
Yes, exactly. This is why Argi+’s unique combination of super fruits (anti-oxidants)- see above – tackles the key downside of L’Arginine and creates a super-quality product that even the joint discoverer of L’Arginine, Dr Murad, uses and commends.
So what are the benefits of Argi+?
Greater blood flow, without additional pressure on the cardiovascular system, means that more oxygen and nutrients reach our tissues, muscles and organs; also, waste products (such as lactic acid, which comes from running/rapid use of muscles mainly at the beginning of exercise) are more efficiently removed.
Better performance (if you run/work out, like me, expect to take minutes off your personal best times)Exercise at a higher level with lower blood pressure (my experience is that I can run faster but without raising blood pressure as high) After exercise – better recovery (so, less muscle soreness the following day – especially if taken within 30 minutes of the end of the exercise)
From a nutritional point of view, we also take Argi+ because we believe it helps to distribute nutrients from our food throughout the body. This benefits normal healthy people by getting their good nutrition to the muscles, tissues and organs where it is needed, as well as those that struggle with lack of energy.
Why is greater blood flow important? Greater blood flow matters because it supports many key functions in our body:
Healthy blood pressure levels: Overall cardiovascular health, Immune function, Muscle growth, Bone & tissue growth & repair, Male sexual function, Fat and glucose metabolism, Anti-aging hormone production and much more.
And for sporty people, they can perform better and recover faster.
What does it taste like?
Great actually! The combination of red fruits with the L’Arginine combines to make a great tasting drink.
How do you make it / take it?
Just add an Argi+ sachet/scoop to a glass of Aloe vera gel/water and mix.
Although, if you want to make a super-power drink you can mix it with an Aloe-2-Go Sachet (aloe vera with mangosteen and pomegranate) or mix it with the Forever Lite nutritional shake (this is particularly good before a long run or stamina based exercise – but you need to take it 2 hours before starting)
How do runners or sports people take Argi+
I have taken Argi+ on multiple occasions – so 2 hours before exercise – either in a long glass of water (3/4 of a pint); 30 minutes before exercise in a small glass
