The title for today’s blog post came from a client whose husband was able to naturally eliminate heart arrhythmia through a combination of taurine with l-arginine.
My client sent me a link to the PubMed article. You can click here to read it for yourself.
The title for this 2006 published study is “Elimination of cardiac arrhythmias using oral taurine with l-arginine with case histories: Hypothesis for nitric oxide stabilization of the sinus node.”
It’s a long title but has some excellent information on how to naturally eliminate heart arrhythmia.
In fact I found the abstract of this study to be fascinating for it looked at the nutrient deficiencies in the following cardiac arrhythmias:
- Premature Atrial Contractions (PACs)
- Premature Ventricular Contractions (PVCs)
- Atrial Fibrillation
- Sinus Pauses
And here were their findings:
Finding #1 – The use of 10 – 20 grams of taurine per day reduced PACs by 50% and prevented all PVCs but did not prevent pauses.
Finding #2 – When 4-6 gram of L-arginine were added this immediately eliminated all the remaining pauses and PACs. And with continued treatment maintained normal cardiac rhythm.
I’ve many clients who have experienced remarkable improvements with heart arrhythmia through the use of nitric oxide therapy. But not all have benefited.
So let’s look at this a little deeper to understand how this combination of taurine and L-arginine help.
Naturally Eliminate Heart Arrhythmia – The Basics
The word arrhythmia is used by the medical community to describe a disturbance in the normal rhythm of the heart. Some arrhythmias are mild and temporary. Others can be life threatening.
The most common arrhythmia is called atrial fibrillation. This effects the upper chambers of the heart and can effect the filling of your heart ventricles, which are the lower chambers of the heart. Usually the concern of atrial fibrillation is the potential for blood to pool in the upper chambers of the heart, which increases your risk for a blood clot. A blood clot that can lead to a stroke or heart attack.
A common, but minor rhythm disorder, is a PVC or premature ventricular contraction. This is when your ventricles or lower heart chambers contract prematurely. PVCs have more of an effect on your body since the lower chambers push out blood to either your lungs or body.
This is especially dangerous when these PVCs become rapid and uncontrolled because it interferes with your blood flow and can lead to death.
Both types of arrhythmias are primarily the result of a disturbance or interference in the electrical conduction of the heart.
Naturally Eliminate Heart Arrhythmia – The Taurine Effect
Taurine is a naturally occurring amino acid that is extremely beneficial to your brain, eyes, heart, and muscles. And while your body can produce taurine, sometimes you’ll need to supplement to help address specific health needs.
As related to the normal rhythm of your heart, taurine helps to regulate potassium, calcium, and sodium levels in your blood and tissues. It also helps to protect you from free radical damage. And specific to your heart, it helps to regulate the excitability of the myocardium.
Taurine also helps to restore energy.
Specific to arrhythmias it seems to dampen the activity of the sympathetic nervous system and epinephrine release.
Naturally Eliminate Heart Arrhythmia – The L-arginine Effect
L-arginine is a key amino acid needed for all people no matter their age or sex. L-arginine helps to fuel 7 different metabolic pathways that are essential to good health. If you’re interested is these 7 different pathways, then please watch the video below titled “The Truth about L-Arginine!”
As it applies to heart arrhythmia, l-arginine is converted by eNOS enzymes, which line your vascular system, into nitric oxide. This process seems to restore sinus rhythm because it helps to restore the ntric oxide needed for stabilization of the sinus node.
Naturally Eliminate Heart Arrhythmia – Final Thoughts
In doing research for this article I also came across two other ingredients that have good supporting literature as it applies to heart arrhythmia.
One is magnesium. I recently did a blog post on this key mineral and how it can significantly improve your overall health. Specific to your cardiovascular system it:
- Helps lover blood pressure
- Reduces the risk for a stroke
- And facilitates the electrical circuitry of the heart
The other ingredient is the amino acid L-carnitine. This amino acid helps to prevent PVCs. And works in tandem with CoQ10 to produce the needed energy for a normal heart contraction.
If you experience any heart arrhythmias, then you need to see your physician. But if your arrhythmia is mild, and your doctor is open to giving you some time before any type of medical intervention, then try a combination of oral taurine and L-arginine as outlined in the study above.
Hopefully your outcome will be the same. Were the arrhythmia disappears and normal heart rhythm returns.
