OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of a new L-arginine-enriched biscuit on endothelial function, insulin sensitivity/secretion and body composition. MATERIALS/METHODS The project was composed of two studies. The first study was an acute pilot postprandial study in 7 healthy subjects that evaluated bio-availability and vascular effects of L-arginine-enriched biscuits that contained 6.6 gL-arginine, 21.9 g carbohydrates, 3.6 g protein, 7.5 g fat and 4.3 g dietary fiber… CONTINUE READING
