L-Arginine is an amino acid which is essential to several systems within the body. 

L-Arginine is a remarkable amino acid which:

  • • Helps improve circulation. L-arginine is a precursor to nitric oxide, a compound that relaxes smooth muscle enhancing circulation.
     • A lack of nitric oxide is linked to cardiovascular disease. L-arginine ability to enhance nitric oxide and thus improve circulation, may help offer protection against cardiovascular disease.
  • • As a precursor of nitric oxide, l-arginine may help male sexual function.
  • • Is required for the production of sperm. Studies indicate l-arginine deficiency is directly linked to lower sperm production and poor sperm motility.
  • • Arginine supports the immune system and enhances collagen manufacture to aid wound healing.
