A recent study, the results of which were reported in Diabetes Care, found that Transdermal L-Arginine cream improved impaired blood flow in the feet of patients with diabetes. The cream enhanced circulation by 33% in the metatarsal region and by 35% at the Achilles tendon. Also, the cream increased temperature by 5?F at the metatarsal and by 8?F at the big toe.
L-Arginine is an amino acid that is the biochemical precursor of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide controls local blood flow by relaxing the smooth muscle lining of blood vessels.
One study linked multiple pregnancies to an increased risk of developing atrial fibrillation later in life, and another investigated the association between premature delivery and cardiovascular disease.
