Jarrow Formulas L-Arginine , Supports Cardiovascular Health, 1000 mg, 100 Tabs

View larger
Product Profile

First isolated from a lupine seedling and characterized in 1886, L-arginine is one of the twenty typical a-amino acids used as building blocks for protein. As such, it is present in a wide variety of foods of both plant and animal origin with particularly high levels found in eggs, almonds, spinach, and lobster. L-arginine is considered to be conditionally essential, meaning that for most adults adequate levels of arginine can be obtained from the diet or through biosynthesis/recycling. However during growth, and at other times when positive nitrogen balance is required, such as during healing, diet, and biosynthesis, may not meet arginine needs since the rate of biosynthesis does not compensate for depletion or inadequate supply. In addition, research evaluating the effects of arginine on the structure and function of the body often utilizes serving sizes in the multi-gram range, which may be difficult to achieve with food alone.

Distinguishing Features:

  • 1000 mg per tablet
  • Pharmaceutical grade L-Arginine
  • Easy-Solv tablets

Nitric Oxide

Aside from incorporation into proteins, one of the primary functions of L-arginine is as a precursor to nitric oxide (NO). Nitric oxide synthase (NOS) generates NO from L-arginine, producing citrulline as a byproduct. The recycling of citrulline back to L-arginine is possible via the citrulline-arginine pathway, but it is an energy intensive and inefficient process that the body does not rely on for its arginine needs.

NO is a critical mediator of vascular regulation, immune activity, and endocrine function. When it comes to the cardiovascular system, this gaseous messenger has a number of effects. It is necessary for endothelium-dependent vasodilation, allowing blood vessels to relax and widen. As such, the role of NO in maintaining healthy blood pressure has been studied in depth. In addition, NO also modulates platelet aggregation and the inflammatory response.

Creatine Connection, Immune Function, And Repair

Creatine helps to supply energy to all cells in the body, primarily muscle. However, it is not an essential nutrient because it can be produced in the body from L-arginine, glycine, and L-methionine. The first step of creatine biosynthesis is carried out by arginine:glycine amidinotransferase. Thus, the use of arginine as a precursor to creatine is part of the allure to athletes, but arginine administration has also been observed to stimulate the release of growth hormone.* The mechanism by which this could occur is unknown, but may be interwoven with the effect of arginine on creatine regulation.*

L-arginine has been found to affect levels of a number of immune modulators and cell adhesion molecules.* This coupled with effects on inflammatory balance and tissue generation make it understandable how arginine can be an important supporter of normal healing.* It appears that tissue injury, particularly of the skin, causes an increase in arginine oxidation and can deplete reserves.

Jarrow Formulas Glucosamine and Chondroitin and MSM, Supports Joint Health, 120 Caps

View larger
Supports Joint Health*

It is often suggested that there are three requirements to keep cartilage healthy: water for lubrication, proteoglycans to attract and hold the water, and collagen to keep the proteoglycans in place. Proteoglycans are large molecules made of protein and carbohydrates. They hold water like a sponge, helping to make cartilage resilient.

Distinguishing Features:

  • Sodium-free glucosamine sulfate
  • 1.5 g glucosamine sulfate and 1.2 g chondroitin sulfate per serving
  • Also contains vitamin C and manganese

View larger
Glucosamine And Chondroitin

Glucosamine is a major building block of the water-loving proteoglycans. Not surprisingly, the very presence of glucosamine stimulates the production of more proteoglycans. In fact, for many years glucosamine has been successfully used for supporting and promoting healthy joint cartilage maintenance.* This has been demonstrated by experimental as well as clinical studies, in which glucosamine led to functional joint improvement.* Several studies have shown that besides stimulating the production of cartilage, glucosamine may significantly help to maintain joint function.* Patients taking glucosamine for up to three years seem to have significantly less knee joint degeneration, less joint space narrowing, and increased levels of comfort when compared with placebo. In one study of 1,208 patients supplemented with glucosamine, 95% of the patients enjoyed a positive response. Glucosamine was even reported to have continued working six to 12 weeks after usage had stopped. Many clinical trials show that taking glucosamine supports functionality compared to placebo, but other trials do not find such conclusive results.*

Although usually studied independently, some reports have indicated that glucosamine and chondroitin work synergistically. Chondroitin is the perfect complement to glucosamine since chondroitin acts like a biological version of a “liquid magnet,” attracting fluid into proteoglycans. This fluid acts as a shock absorber and also brings nutrients with it into the cartilage. Perhaps of greater significance than its fluid-enhancing properties, chondroitin protects existing cartilage through its modulatory effects on enzymes that degrade cartilage.* Furthermore, like glucosamine, chondroitin stimulates the production of proteoglycans and collagen that are needed for healthy cartilage.* In one randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, the effectiveness of chondroitin was evaluated for promoting joint health in the knee. In this study, 300 human subjects were given either 1200 mg chondroitin or placebo once per day for two years. The group receiving the placebo had progressive joint space narrowing, while the those receiving chondroitin showed no change in mean joint space width.*

Methyl Sulfonyl Methane (MSM)

Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a naturally occurring, sulfur-containing compound that is present in body fluids and tissues and is found in milk, fruits, vegetables, and grains (in small amounts). Animal research has shown that joints with lower levels of cartilage also have low sulfur content. In one animal study, the effect of prolonged oral administration of MSM was examined in relation to joint health. It was found that MSM produced positive effects on joint health. *

In a preliminary double-blind trial in human subjects with suboptimal joint function, daily supplementation with MSM promoted joint comfort after six weeks.* In a separate placebo-controlled trial, researchers studied 50 men and women who also had suboptimal joint function. These men and women were given MSM daily or a placebo for 12 weeks. The MSM group fared much better in the areas of comfort and physical function compared to the placebo group.*

An Ancient Herb

The Greek herbalist Dioscorides catalogued milk thistle in his list of healing plants for liver conditions, improving bile flow and stimulating digestion.* The Roman author Pliny was of a similar opinion. Indeed, milk thistle (Silybum marianum) extracts have been used as traditional herbal remedies for almost 2000 years and milk thistle is now extensively cultivated as a healing herb. This is especially true in Germany, where milk thistle is quite popular. Despite its distinctive prickly leaves and milky sap, milk thistle is sometimes confused with a different plant known as blessed or holy thistle (Cnicus benedictus).

Today, milk thistle extracts are among the most popular and the best researched of all herbs. Yet, this herb had largely become forgotten by the mid-20th Century. It was barely mentioned in the United States Dispensatory of 1947, and the most common folk use outside of Central Europe was to improve lactation.

Modern research has focused on bile production and liver function. German scientists have produced an extract called silymarin, which has a variety of liver-protectant properties.* The active principles normally constitute only 1-4 percent of the total plant, so it is necessary to concentrate the extract extensively to provide benefits. Jarrow Formulas Milk Thistle provides just such a potent concentrate.

Special Antioxidant Benefits

Silymarin refers to three active flavonoid components of milk thistle: primarily silybin with smaller amounts of silydianin and silychristin. This trio neutralizes toxins and improves liver function.* Its action rests primarily upon the ability to inhibit production and activity of hepatotoxic (liver toxic) compounds.* More recent evidence indicates that it benefits the health of several other organs as well.*

The liver is the primary organ for detoxification. Many toxins are either free radicals, or encourage free radical production and may subsequently interfere with the liver’s defenses against free radicals. As a potent antioxidant, silymarin intervenes in free radical generation and protects against many reactive oxygen species.* In some measurement systems, silymarin is ten times more effective than vitamin E in preventing unwanted oxidation. The extract also increases the liver’s content of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione (GSH) by ~35 percent, and increases the levels of the body’s major antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase (SOD).* Silymarin also modulates the actions of lipoxygenase in the liver.* Lipoxygenase acts upon polyunsaturated fatty acids to produce pro-inflammatory compounds called leukotrienes, which cause damage to liver cell membranes.

Silymarin is active against all of these assaults upon liver cell integrity and function. It therefore has direct and indirect antioxidant benefits by elevating the body’s own defenses. Research has shown that milk thistle extracts also significantly enhance cellular immune biomarkers.*

Supporting Liver Regeneration, Bile Solubility

The liver is capable of extensive self-regeneration, but silymarin can even markedly increase this ability to replace damaged cells.* There is also some suggestion that silymarin stimulates protein synthesis in the liver.* Nevertheless, silymarin does not encourage malignant liver cell growth.* Growing evidence suggests that silymarin has protective properties to the kidneys that mirror those in the liver.*

Classically, milk thistle is associated with improved digestion and bile production.* These are important functions of the liver and their impairment can lead to undesirable outcomes in the body. Clinical trials have supported this traditional employment of the herb. The extract can increase bile solubility and possibly help guard against stone formation.*

Bioavailability

Silymarin exhibits poor solubility in water. Delivery in the form of teas provides less than 10 percent of total activity. Older studies demonstrating silymarin as a bile flow-inducer used alcoholic tinctures rather than the water-based preparations commonly sold today.

Only 20-50 percent of silymarin is assimilated from the gastrointestinal tract at any given time. Thus, an effective milk thistle supplement needs to be highly concentrated, like Jarrow Formulas Milk Thistle, to provide a physiologically significant amount. According to the German monograph covering milk thistle, 12-15 grams of the crude herbal extract provides 200-400 mg silymarin. This is equivalent to the amount delivered by only 3 capsules of Jarrow Formulas Milk Thistle.

Jarrow Formulas Max DHA , Supports Brain and Eye Health, 180 Softgels

Product Profile

In the 1970s, researchers began to realize that essential fatty acids were beneficial. We can thank Greenland Eskimos for this discovery, because it was their high fat diet from cold water fish that made their low incidence of coronary artery disease so striking. Two members of the omega-3 family of fatty acids, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), are particularly noted for their health promoting properties. DHA, in particular, plays a key role in the proper formation, development, and function of the brain, retina, and central nervous system. *

View larger

View larger
Hooray for DHA

DHA is selectively incorporated into the nerves, retina, and gray matter of the brain – all being tissues responsible for nerve transmission. In fact, DHA makes up about 40% of the polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) in the brain and roughly 60% in the retina. DHA is so important that the body is able to recognize it and transport it preferentially to the nervous system. There are even special mechanisms to allow it to cross the blood-brain barrier. The prevalence of DHA in brain cell membranes results in a powerful impact on the fluidity and function of cell membranes.* DHA levels may also affect the capacity to regulate brain cell membrane proteins, which are critical to neuronal function.*

DHA For Expecting Mothers And Newborns

DHA is essential for the proper neurological development of a growing fetus and infant. Our bodies are capable of producing some DHA from other omega-3 precursors, but what we are able to convert is only a small percentage of what is needed to promote optimum brain health and, in particular, brain development.* Because of this developmental advantage to babies, DHA has found its way into breast milk via evolution. And of importance to modern mothers is research showing that increased maternal dietary intake of DHA leads to higher levels in breast milk. Consequently, sufficient intake of DHA during and after pregnancy is vitally important.* Some pediatricians suggest that maternal stores of DHA be augmented ideally as early as three months prior to conception to ensure an adequate supply for the fetus. Scientists have pointed to DHA as one reason why breast-fed children tend to have higher IQ scores and better visual acuity than formula-fed children. The evidence is substantial enough that infant formula manufacturers have begun adding DHA to their products.*

DHA In Mental Health and Aging

ADHD (Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a term used to describe otherwise normal children who exhibit hyperactive, impulsive, and inattentive behavior. Current studies indicate a possible link between essential fatty acid deficiencies and ADHD. Blood samples from children diagnosed as having ADHD show significantly lower levels of several essential fatty acids, including DHA. Although research in this area continues, these preliminary findings further suggest DHA’s importance in developing children.* Switching gears from young to old, aging leads to an increased risk in developing abnormal deposits in the brain and damage to brain-cell interconnections. This can lead to the deterioration of memory and the decreased ability to carry out daily tasks. DHA displayed some protection against both dendritic damage in one mouse model and the accumulation of amyloid plaques in another. Decreased DHA blood levels can also often be found in people experiencing age-related cognitive impairment. Some research has suggested that supplemental DHA may even have some effects on mood, but other studies find no changes.* The results are preliminary, but these potential effects seem logical given DHA’s fundamental role in ensuring neuronal membrane fluidity and thereby facilitating cell function and communication.*

DHA vs. Fish Oil

Typical omega-3 fish oil products usually contain higher concentrations of EPA and less DHA. Jarrow Formulas Max DHA is a special molecular distillate of calamari oil that provides highly concentrated amounts of DHA along with EPA. Max DHA’s molecular distillation process ensures the removal of undesirable contaminants. Max DHA delivers a high level DHA and is ideal for supporting healthy brain function in all ages, but especially in children and seniors.*

View larger
Usage And Safety

Overall, DHA supplements are relatively safe. Caution should be noted for anyone taking coumadin/warfarin or any other type of oral blood thinner. In adults, the typical amount of fish oil that has been used in clinical studies ranges from 1,000 to 3,000 mg per day. In children, the recommendation has been 40 mg/kg of body weight. Max DHA includes five mg of gamma tocopherol and two mg of ascorbyl palmitate for antioxidant protection of the long-chain fatty acids from oxidative degradation, which leads to rancidity.
