More details

L-arginine is a type of amino acid. Amino acids are the íbuilding blocks” of proteins, therefore used for a lot of functions in your body. L-arginine is not produced by the body, and must therefore be obtained from the diet or supplements.

Benefits for health

L-arginine is highly important for many functions in the body. Yet, it is usually present in low quantities in the body, especially when you get older. Let’s have a look at all benefits:

  • for heart health and blood flow: L-arginine is beneficial to reduce inflammation and improve the health of the blood vessels and cardiovascular system. L-arginine causes blood vessels to open wider. This improves blood flow and circulation. Taking a supplement of L-arginine can avoid a heart attack or stroke, especially for people with high risk factors for heart disease.
  • anti-aging effects: L-arginine has been found to fight free radicals due to its antioxidant effects. It’s commonly used in combination with Vitamin C and Omega 3 supplements, helping to slow the aging process.
  • improves immunity: L-arginine is used with omega 3 to reduce risk for infections (especially respiratory infections) and speeds up healing following illness or surgery. Because L-arginine has immune-enhancing effects, it’s commonly given to people undergoing chemotherapy or healing from infections (including HIV, although more studies are needed to support use for HIV).
  • erectile dysfunction and men infertility: L-arginine supplements can help improve sperm production. It is effective in a significant percentage of male infertility cases (up to 92 percent, according to some studies). Stress levels tend to lower L-arginine levels, therefore stressed men can especially benefits from supplementing with L-Arginine.
  • women willing to conceive: even women can experience better reproductive help from L-arginine. Other studies suggest that L-arginine supplements improve pregnancy rates in women struggling to conceive.
