L-Arginine 750mcg 90's is available by Pure Encapsulations.
Arginine supports nitric
oxide formation, important 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. In men with
low urinary nitric oxide values, l-arginine may support healthy sexual
function. Some but not all research involving l-arginine
supplementation for sperm motility has produced positive results.
Arginine plays a role in the synthesis of hormones such as insulin and
growth hormone, and has demonstrated the potential to support glucose
metabolism and growth hormone production respectively. Because of its
effect on nitric oxide production, l-arginine is theoretically best
avoided by individuals with migraines, depression, autoimmune
disorders, and kidney or liver disease. Arginine is contra-indicated
for individuals with the herpes virus.
l-Arginine is a safe,
versatile amino acid precursor of nitric oxide associated with
promoting cardiovascular health, immune support, sexual function, and
