L-Arginine May Help Combat Belly Fat

Central obesity (excessive fat around the stomach and abdomen) has been linked to a higher risk of cardiometabolic disease than any other form of obesity. A new study published in the Journal of Dietary Supplements and referenced on foodconsumer.org indicates that using L-Arginine as a dietary supplement may help combat this problem.

Led by Ryan T. Hurt, MD-PhD from Mayo Clinic in Rochester, the study involved 20 non-diabetic, obese women ages 18 to 40, and measured the effects of three grams of L-Arginine consumed three times daily for a 12-week period. The 12-week supplementation led to a nearly three-inch average reduction in waist size and an average weight loss of over six pounds for research participants.

One of the 22 amino acids found in high-protein foods (especially peanuts), L-Arginine has been used to improve libido, sports performance and cardiovascular health. By increasing nitric oxide, its function is shown to increase blood flow and the dilation of blood vessels.

Of course, an integral part of LifeWave’s mission is providing whole body health benefits to people around the world. Each packet of our Theta One*drink supplement (recommended for daily use) contains three grams of L-Arginine.
