L-arginine is a type of amino acid, and as we know, amino acids are the “building blocks” of proteins. It has multiple benefits, including improving immune function, fertility, detoxfication and brain power. Another important aspect of L-arginine is that it stimulates the production of certain hormones, especially beneficial growth hormones and insulin that help usher glucose into cells to be used for growth and energy output.
repairing blood vessels
fighting congestive heart failure
helping lower high blood pressure
improving athletic performance
increasing immune function
reducing muscle pains (especially in the legs caused by blocked arteries)
improving kidney function
The benefits of L-arginine go beyond producing NO to help with circulation, however; as you’ll see, L-arginine has important roles in nerve signaling, cell replication, and fighting oxidative stress that results in disease and signs of aging.
The positive benefits of arginine go beyond sexual enhancement
This remarkable amino acid helps build muscle mass, enhance immune function, improve blood pressure, increase memory, and speed wound healing. Arginine-derived nitric oxide has also been found to play a supporting role in the cardiovascular, immune, and nervous systems and has been validated by hundreds of studies.
Boosts Exercise Performance
L-arginine is used by the body to increase production of human growth hormone, prolactin and several amino acids — including creatine, L-proline and l-glutamate. It even improves sensitivity to insulin, similarly to how exercise does, by allowing more glucose to enter cells. L-arginine’s roles in metabolic health are important for building strong muscle tissue, fighting inflammation causing bone and joint pain, repairing injuries, and for general nervous system functions.
Healthy adults who are looking to prevent inflammation and benefit from better circulation, about one gram daily (1,000 milligrams) is usually the recommended dose.
