L-arginine is a free-form amino acid that is needed to create both creatine and urea, a waste product that is necessary for the removal of ammonia from the body. While the body typically manufactures enough l-arginine, it is considered a semi-essential amino acid as supplementation is sometimes needed. Arginine is a precursor to nitric oxide, which causes relaxation of the blood vessels, and also plays a key role in the production of protein. Each easy-to-swallow capsule contains 500 mg of easily assimilated L-arginine with no tablet binders, coatings or added flavorings, salt, artificial sweeteners, colorings, preservatives or salicylates.*
L-Arginine may promote muscle-building activity in the body by increasing levels of anabolic (growth-promoting) hormones such as insulin and growth hormone! Arginine is necessary for the execution of many physiological processes. These physiological processes include hormone secretion, an increase in growth hormone output, the removal of toxic waste products from the body, and immune system defenses.*
Because Arginine is a precursor of nitric oxide [which is responsible for vasodiolation 3] it is often used for treating conditions such as chest cramping [angina], high blood pressure, heart disease, and sexual dysfunction. Arginine is also used in the treatment of male and female infertility.*
