NOW Foods L-Arginine Powder is 100% pure pharmaceutical grade L-Arginine. L-Arginine is an amino acid popular for its amazing nitrogen retention ability. Nitrogen, as you are all aware is one of the key elements in muscle protein synthesis. Some plants can absorb nitrogen, but we mammals have to make do with the stuff we make ourselves.*
Arginine is mostly present in protanines and histones, two proteins commonly associated with nucleic acids (like DNA and RNA). So far its main use was for newborns to excite new growth, because at a young age it's difficult to manufacture enough. It enhances the immune system, stimulates the size and activity of the Thymus gland (responsible for the famous T-cells) which makes it a prime choice for anyone in a condition that is less than optimal for health.*
Now Foods L-Arginine Powder can easily be added to drinks and protein shakes!
