What Is It?

L-arginine is a semi-essential amino acid involved in multiple areas of human physiology and metabolism.* L-arginine significantly affects endocrine function and helps regulate the release of neurotransmitter chemicals insulin glucagon (which has the opposite effect of insulin; i.e. it raises blood sugar) and growth hormone.* However one of L-arginine's most compelling contributions to human physiology is its role as a biological precursor of nitric oxide.* The vascular endothelium (the lining of the arteries) creates nitric oxide from L-arginine resulting primarily in blood vessel relaxation.* This property is important to maintaining good vascular health heart health reproductive health and protection against oxidative damage.*

What It’s For

When sufficient L-arginine is present:

  • Arteries relax promoting optimal blood flow*
  • As arteries relax already normal blood pressure can be better maintained*
  • Erections can occur in the normal course of intimacy*
  • Increased work capacity during exercise is promoted*
  • Lean muscle mass synthesis is supported*
  • Sustained-release L-arginine supports cardiovascular function wound healing and immune function* – and is a biological precursor to nitric oxide*
