Cardiovascular disease

Cardiovascular Disease

  • Number 1 cause of morbidity and mortality among adults in the United States.

  • Atherosclerosis: inflammatory disease characterized by vascular endothelial dysfunction and diminished production of NO.

L arginine and l citrulline

L-arginine and L-citrulline

L-CITRULLINE

L-ARGININE

  • From Citrullusvulgaris – watermelon*

  • Non-essential Amino Acid

  • Precursor of arginine- Nitric Oxide System

  • Conditionally-essential amino acid: infants, ill, or injured.

  • Nitric Oxide Pathway

  • Vasodilation

  • Overall Cardiovascular health

How citrulline may be the key 2

Cit increases Arg pools and restores N balance

After Cit administration, plasma CIT concentration increases to a maximum then decreases to baseline in 3-5 hours.

After the same Cit administration, plasma ARG increases to reach a maximum and then decreases gradually – NOT TO BASELINE – within 8 hours.

Cit = well tolerated (no side effects)

Did not induce GI issues

Whereas, a bolus of the same dose of Arg Diarrhea

How Citrulline may be the KEY2

Watermelon

Watermelon

  • Components:

    • Unique source of both citrulline and arginine

    • Watermelon is the richest known source of citrulline.

  • Health Benefits:

    • CVD

    • Cancer (prostate) - rich in lycopene (more than tomatoes!)

  • Watermelon Consumption:

    • Most sold in the US as fresh

    • 50-80% seedless

    • Small percentage is minimally processed (cut or cubed)

Summary

Summary

  • L-arginine has been proven to promote cardiovascular health

  • CIT is very efficiently absorbed and metabolised to ARG

  • Both amino acids (especially together) are critical in maintaining optimum levels of NO- without which endothelial dysnfunction may present.

  • Watermelon is a good source of both aa but is a unique source of large amounts of dietary CIT!

  • Watermelon supplementation is very tolerated = high compliance

  • Promising Tx for CVD- the #1 cause of death in US


Limitations and future studies

Limitations and Future Studies

  • CIT administration in the long term

  • In high doses, does the effect of large amounts of CHO intake negate the cardiovascular benefits of watermelon supplementation?

  • Gene expression in carriers of CIT absorption

  • NO in its cytoxic role in tumor cells + lycopene – Cancer

  • Weight loss
