What is L Arginine?

L-arginine is a precursor of nitric oxide and other metabolites.

It is an important component of collagen, enzymes and hormones, skin and connective tissues. L-arginine plays important roles in the synthesis of various protein molecules; creatine and insulin being the most easily recognised.

It may have antioxidant property and reduces accumulation of compounds such as ammonia and plasma lactate, by-products of physical exercise. It also inhibits platelet aggregation and has also been known to decrease blood pressure.

What function does L-arginine have?

1.Blood vessel function:

In the body, L-arginine is used to make nitric oxide, which reduces blood vessel stiffness, increases blood flow, and improves blood vessel function.

2.Erectile Dysfunction:

L-arginine has been used for erectile dysfunction. Like the drug sildenafil citrate (Viagra), L-arginine is thought to enhance the action of nitric oxide, which relaxes muscles surrounding blood vessels supplying the penis. As a result, blood vessels in the penis dilate, increasing blood flow, which helps maintain an erection.

3.Wound healing:

L-arginine’s possible activity in wound repair may be due to its role in the formation of L-proline, an important amino acid that is essential for the synthesis of collagen.

4.Other Conditions:

L-arginine is also used for high blood pressure, migraines, sexual dysfunction in women, intermittent claudication, and interstitial cystitis.

Which field does L Arginine applied?

It is suitable for hepatic coma with increased blood ammonia, especially in patients with alkalosis. Used to assist in the measurement of pituitary function. Oral for male infertility caused by insufficient semen secretion and sperm deficiency. It can also be used to supplement arginine in infants and young children.
