Water with L-Arginine: Dehydration and Hypertension

on May 21, 2012

Water is our life-blood. Every single cell in our bodies contain water, need water to survive, and thrive off of water to be the best. From blood to muscles, lungs and brain, it all needs water to function at peak performance. Water transports oxygen and nutrients to the body, delivers essential vitamins to the cells, removes waste from the body, and can help to protect your joints and organs. It’s amazing, which is why we mix Cardio Juvenate every morning into a nice, cold glass of blood pressure lowering water. Yep, you heard me, water can lower your blood pressure!


Dehydration Causes High Blood Pressure

Did you know that by depriving your body of water, whether knowingly or unknowingly, you are increasing your risk for heart attack and stroke? Yep, the less water you drink, the higher your risk for heart complications. Dehydration, in the extreme, can elevate your blood pressure and place a great deal of stress on your arteries and cells.


Technically speaking, our bodies become dehydrated when there is a 66% water loss from the interior of the cells, 26% water loss from the environment around the cells, and 8% loss from the vascular system. When this begins to happen, the body will restrict blood vessels to try and preserve fluid. Restriction of the blood vessels is what causes high blood pressure, which, through dehydration, can lead to stroke and heart attack.


Are You Drinking Enough Water To Beat Hypertension?

Experts say that you can determine how much water you should be drinking by taking your weight in pounds and dividing that number in half. This how many ounces of water you need to be drinking each day.


Avoid alternatives to water such as sports drinks and juice, as those usually have high sugar content and can, in fact, have the opposite effect of rehydrating your body. Nothing beats a nice cold glass of water.


Water with L-Arginine

L-arginine has been clinically proven to lower blood pressure by widening the walls of your arteries and thus increasing circulation. Remembering how insanely important it is to drink water each and every day to avoid dehydration, mix in some Cardio Juvenate with l-arginine to not only keep your body hydrated but keep your blood pressure low.
