L-arginine is one of the best-known amino acids, and one the types most frequently used as a supplement. It's main application in supplements is supporting the production of nitric oxide (NO), which naturally opens and relaxes blood vessels. This improves circulation all over the body and is good for cardiovascular health in general. Arginine is a common component in nitric oxide preworkout formulas, libido formulas, blood pressure formulas, all because of its relationship to NO. Arginine has also been shown to increase HGH release during sleep. But effective doses of arginine are often in the gram range, 3-5 grams or more, so capsules and tablets are an impractical way to take arginine. Instead, knowledgeable users save money and time by choosing a powdered arginine like this pharmaceutical grade L-arginine from purity leaders NOW Foods. Mix into fruit juice or use in shakes.
L-Arginine is a conditionally essential basic amino acid involved primarily in urea metabolism and excretion, as well as DNA synthesis.
