L-arginine is a chemical building block called "an essential amino acid”. Essential amino acids are those that body cannot manufacture it on its own and needs to be consumed through one’s diet. It’s found in red meat, poultry, fish, and dairy products. It can also be made in a laboratory and used as medicine. L-arginine is converted in the body into a chemical called nitric oxide. Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to open wider for improved blood flow and stimulates the release of growth hormone, insulin, and other substances in the body. As the aging process occurs, the body’s ability to absorb and convert L-arginine into nitric oxide decreases over time. Therefore, supplementation may be necessary.
L-arginine is primarily used for sustaining a healthy heart, blood vessel, and mental capacity. Some common symptoms associated with decreased L-arginine levels include: erectile dysfunction, male infertility, decreased mental capacity (i.e. brain fog), leg pain due to poor circulation, and early onset dementia.
Some people use L-arginine to improve exercise performance, boost the immune system, and prevent inflammation.
L-arginine is also commonly used with a number of over-the-counter and prescription medications like ibuprofen to help treat migraine headaches.

L-Arginine is an essential amino acid that is required during periods of maximal growth, severe stress, and injury. It’s a building block for protein synthesis and also modulates cellular biochemical conversion to a number of biologically active compounds such as nitric oxide, creatine phosphate, agmatine, polyamines, ornithine, and citrulline. Arginine has many effects in the body that include modulation of immune function, wound healing, hormone secretion, vascular tone, insulin sensitivity, and endothelial function.
L-arginine reaches its peak blood concentration within approximately 80 minutes and it is fully eliminated from the body within approximately 4-hours.
