L-Arginine (180 Caps)
L-arginine acts as a vasodilator, opening (dilating) blood vessels, many people take oral L-arginine to try to treat cardiovascular conditions and erectile dysfunction.
l-Arginine is a safe, versatile amino acid supporting protein synthesis and serving as a precursor of nitric oxide.
Uses For l-Arginine
Cardiovascular Health: In the body, the metabolism of l-arginine leads to the formation of nitric oxide. Arginine-derived nitric oxide is an important catalyst for healthy dilation of blood vessels, circulation, and blood flow. In a prospective, double-blind trial, l-arginine supplementation supported healthy endothelial function in blood vessels of male volunteers. In other studies, l-arginine promoted healthy platelet function and enhanced exercise tolerance. Additional trials indicate that l-arginine may support healthy lipid metabolism and moderate lipid peroxidation, enhancing its cardiovascular support properties.
Male Sexual Function:
In men with low urinary nitric oxide values, l-arginine may support healthy sexual performance. Some but not all research involving l-arginine supplementation for sperm motility have produced positive results. L-arginine is an amino acid that helps make proteins. It also becomes the gas nitric oxide (NO) in the body. NO is important to erectile function because this gas helps blood vessels relax so more oxygen-rich blood can circulate through your arteries. Healthy blood flow to the arteries of the penis is essential for normal erectile function.
Arginine is contraindicated for individuals with the herpes virus.
