GLOSSARY
L-ARGININE

L-Arginine

 

How does it work?

L-arginine is a semi-essential amino acid involved in nitric oxide synthesis, tissue repair, vasodilation, smooth muscle relaxation, pH regulation, cell-mediated immunity and macronutrient metabolism.1 Through these actions it has been used in the management of cardiovascular disease conditions, peripheral arterial disease, erectile dysfunction, diabetes and wound healing.2 Through the production of nitric oxide, arginine is also used in the bodybuilding and sports industry to assist with oxygen transport to muscle cells, therefore enhancing performance and recovery.3

What results can be expected?

As a result of increasing nitric oxide synthesis there will be more available oxygen and nutrient delivery to tissues through vasodilation and smooth muscle relaxation, enabling enhanced exercise performance and recovery.4 L-arginine has also shown to improve blood flow therefore may improve hypertension, angina, atherosclerosis, erectile dysfunction and diabetes.5
