L-Arginine is an essential amino acid which assists in wound healing, helping remove excess ammonia from the body, stimulating immune function, and promoting secretion of several hormones, including glucagon, insulin, and growth hormone.
L-Arginine & Cardio-Vascular Health: L-arginine allows blood vessels to dilate, thus leading to reduced blood pressure. In one controlled trial, people not responding to conventional medication for their hypertension were found to respond to a combination of conventional medication and oral arginine (2 grams taken three times per day.)
L-Arginine is used in cardio-vascular disease where circulation is impaired including angina, congestive heart failure and intermittent claudication (leg cramps).
L-Arginine & Immunity/Infection: L-arginine has a positive effect on the immune system, mainly by stimulating thymus activity. L-Arginine is an important component in tissue generation and regeneration and helps the body heal from wounds,
including cases of burns, trauma and sepsis. There is some evidence that it is helpful for interstitial cystitis.
L-Arginine & Mens Health: L-Arginine is one of the most popular amino supplements for Mens health
L-Arginine & Body-building: L-Arginine is one of the body-building amino acids and also influences several hormone functions. L-Arginine is essential in muscle metabolism and is used by athletes for body composition and strength. L-arginine has been shown to stimulate the pituitary gland to produce and secrete human growth hormone in young males, at a dose of more than 3 grams daily. Human growth hormone helps in muscle building, leading to increased muscle strength and tone, and enhances fat metabolism (increases the burning of fats), which may help with weight loss. .
L-Arginine & Mens Sexual/Sperm Health: L-Arginine is a precursor to Nitric Oxide (NO) which promotes circulation, resulting in improved blood flow to the penis. In addition to improved erectile function, studies with L-Arginine report an increase in sexual satisfaction in men and improved sexual desire and satisfaction in women
L-arginine supplementation, at a dosage of 4 grams daily, has been successful in improving fertility in men by increasing low sperm count and motility.
Note: L-Arginine should be avoided during outbreaks of cold sores/herpes infections - use L-Lysine instead.
