Researchers from the University of Copenhagen found that the amino acid, arginine, which is mostly found in wide variety of foods such as salmon, eggs and nuts, may help improve the body’s ability to process glucose. The study suggests that arginine stimulates a hormone that is linked to the treatment of type 2 diabetes, and may be as effective as the drugs being sold in the market. To test the effect of the amino acid arginine, researchers subjected lean and obese animal models to a so-called glucose tolerance test, which measures the body’s ability to remove glucose from the blood over time. It has long been known that arginine is helpful to the body’s ability to produce insulin, however, the latest findings suggest that this process is indirect.
