Use This to Improve Your Circulation and Bone Regeneration

Do you think of your bones as nothing but the hard lifeless structure on which supports your muscles and organ? Well hopefully not because this could not be further from the truth!

Our bones are actually dynamic living systems that are constantly being broken down and regenerated in a complex process that involves many different nutrients including vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. These nutrients are carried to the bone through the blood.

Circulation and Bone Remodeling

The bones are constantly going through a process called "bone remodeling." This process involves specialized bone cells called osteoclasts and osteoblasts. Osteoclasts breakdown old damaged bone tissue while osteoblasts deposit new bone tissue.

In order for these bone cells to do their jobs properly they need an adequate supply of nutrients from the blood. Without strong blood flow to the bone, the bone cells will not have the calcium and other minerals necessary to build new strong bones.

Once more, the blood not only acts to supply the bone with nutrients but also transports waste away form the bone. Inadequate blood flow can also lead to calcium build up in the bone due to not enough calcium leaving via the blood.

Therefore, in order to prevent malnourished bones or the buildup of waste, it is important to maintain healthy circulation to bones. This is where a special amino acid can be of great benefit.

L-Arginine and Blood Flow

Unlike the veins and arteries you are use to, the vessels that supply blood to the bones are microscopic in size. This means they are very fragile and must have the proper nutrients available to maintain their strength and function.

One of the most important nutrients for the maintenance of these blood vessels is an amino acid called L-arginine.

L-arginine is important for supplying the blood vessels around the bones with nitric oxide.

Nitric oxide is well known for dilating blood vessels an thus improving blood flow and nutrient supply to every are of the body. L-arginine transports nitric oxide to the blood vessels around the bones thus improving their strength and function.

Studies have shown that people with low levels of nitric oxide tend to have weaker and more brittle bones.

How to Get The Benefits of L-Arginine

L-arginine is found in small amounts in many foods including turkey, pork, chicken, dairy, pumpkin seeds, chickpeas, and lentils. However, despite being in such commonly consumed foods, most Americans are critically deficient in this crucial nutrient.

While there is currently no recommended daily amount (RDA) established for L-arginine, we do know that the health effects are seen somewhere around the 250-350 mg range.

The average American consumes a mere 4.4 mg a day. On the lower end of the distribution, about one quarter of the population consumes less than 2.6 mg a day!

These numbers are unacceptable for those who wish the reap the bone building benefits of l-arginine. That is why our Silical System formula contains a whopping 300 mg of L-arginine! When you take Silical System you know you have all the nutrients you need to build strong bones as you age!
