Category - L-Arginine

L-arginine is a conditionally essential amino acid and it plays an important role in cell division, immune function, release of hormones and wound healing. Arginine is the immediate precursor of nitric oxide, urea, ornithine, and agmatine, it is also necessary for the synthesis of creatine. L-arginine is claimed to promote widening of blood vessels by increasing nitric oxide production in muscles during exercise, improving strength, power and muscular recovery. However studies contrast each other. L-arginine supplementation only seems to aid in nitric oxide synthesis when body is in L-arginine deficiency.
