L Arginine: Supplement to Help Relieve Neuropathy Symptoms

"Hi, this is Dr. Silvester and I’m going to talk to you about another one of our supplements that we have that we use for our patients with neuropathy  and it’s L Arginine. L Arginine is an interesting compound. A Nobel Prize was given for the discovery of the nitric oxide pathway which helps blood vessels dilate and grow and increase oxygen supply to tissues. L Arginine is one of those compounds that has a big effect in that pathway. 

L Arginine has a dramatic effect on the nerve by dilating the blood vessel, which means opening up the blood vessel that supplies the nerve and increasing the oxygen supply to the nerve so that the nerve can actually heal itself. We’ve noticed that in combination with other supplements, L Arginine has been a big factor in helping our patients get better. 

It has a pretty profound effect on treating neuropathy. If you have neuropathy, that might be one of the supplements you may want to start taking. Thank you!"
