CoQ10 is a fat-soluble compound (chemical) synthesized by the body, required for the proper function of many organs and chemical reactions in the body. It also acts as an antioxidant (substance that protects against cell damage) by neutralizing the free radicals (waste products formed in the body during energy production).
.

L-Arginine(NA)

Uses

L-Arginine is used in the treatment of nutritional deficiencies.

How it works

L-arginine's activities, including its possible anti-atherogenic actions, may be accounted for by its role as the precursor to nitric oxide or NO. NO is produced by all tissues of the body and plays very important roles in the cardiovascular system, immune system and nervous system. NO is formed from L-arginine via the enzyme nitric oxide synthase or synthetase (NOS), and the effects of NO are mainly mediated by 3,'5' -cyclic guanylate or cyclic GMP. NO activates the enzyme guanylate cyclase, which catalyzes the synthesis of cyclic GMP from guanosine triphosphate or GTP. Cyclic GMP is converted to guanylic acid via the enzyme cyclic GMP phosphodiesterase. NOS is a heme-containing enzyme with some sequences similar to cytochrome P-450 reductase. Several isoforms of NOS exist, two of which are constitutive and one of which is inducible by immunological stimuli. The constitutive NOS found in the vascular endothelium is designated eNOS and that present in the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system is designated nNOS.

Common side effects

Abdominal bloating, Abdominal pain, Abnormality of blood, Allergy, Decreased blood pressure, Diarrhoea, Gout, Airway inflammation, Worsening of asthma.
