Does plasma L-arginine level play a role in regulation of blood pressure during exercise and autonomic nervous function?

Abstract

Little is known of L-arginine's role in autonomic nervous regulation and physiological responses to dynamic exercise. We assessed heart rate and blood pressure during a maximal bicycle ergometer test and heart rate variability at rest in 15 healthy male volunteers, age 22-38 years. Venous blood samples for plasma L-arginine measurements were taken when… (More)
