What Do the Tri-Amino Acids Do?
The Tri-Amino Acids we utilize at wHydrate are a combination of three conditional, non-essential amino acids which play a very critical role aiding in a wide variety of benefits for the human body’s health, reglardless of gender, race, or ace.
Non-essential is a bit of a misnomer, becuase they are very essential to a healthy body, it just means your body is able to synthesize them on its own to a certain degree. These three amino acids are part of a group of eight amino acids considered conditional, which means your body is under stress (like during illness), it can’t produce enough of these amino acids to meet its needs.
The blend of Tri-Amino Acids at wHdrate IV Therapy locations includes of L-Arginine, L-Citrulline, and L-Ornithine. Through various research studies, these amino acids have shown to play a role in cardiovascular health and blood flow. The last part is why there are some physicians who recommend receiving tri-amino injections for erectile dysfunction caused by poor circulation.
Looking at each amino acid individually:
- L-Arginine: L-arginine is an amino acid that can be obtained from your diet and is vital for protein synthesis. Arginine is frequently found in dairy, meat, nuts, seeds, and whole grains. Arginine is converted by the body into nitric oxide, a gas in the blood stream responsible for relaxing blood vessels leading to increased blood flow to organs throughout the body. There are several studies showing L-arginine benefits those with leg pain from blocked arteries, dementia-induced mental capacity impairment, and infertility in men.
- L-Citrulline: Like L-arginine, L-citrulline is an amino acid that boosts the production of nitric oxide in the body. There is research indicating L-citrulline might be able to help people with diabetes who suffer from circulatory issues that manifest in things like slow wound healing. Similarly to L-arginine, since it assists in increasing nitric oxide production in the body, L-citrulline supplementation could improve dilation of blood vessels and increase blood flow that has the ability to improve some symptoms of mild to moderate erectile dysfunction.
- L-Ornithine: L-ornithine is the amino acid used in the body’s process of converting ammonia that comes from the body breaking down proteins, to urea. Because of this, L-ornithin has the ability to eliminate excess nitrogen from the body.
