Supplements Containing L-arginine

 What is L-arginine? What food sources are rich in arginine?

L-arginine is an amino acid. This amino acid is obtained from the diet and is necessary for the production of proteins. Red meat, poultry, fish and dairy products are food sources rich in L-arginine. L-arginine is also made synthetically and used as a medicine or supplement.

What effect does L-arginine have on the body?

– L-arginine is converted into a chemical called nitric oxide in the body. Nitric oxide dilates blood vessels and improves blood flow. L-arginine also causes the release of growth hormone, insulin and some other substances in the body.

What is the use of L-arginine supplements for athletes?

– L-arginine is used to improve sports performance. Also, due to the ease of conversion of L-arginine to other amino acids, it facilitates recovery after exercise and repair of damaged muscles and tissues.

Does L-arginine have other uses besides the use for athletes?

– Yes, many beneficial effects have been listed for L-arginine. Among these effects are:

– Helping to resolve erectile dysfunction in men: L-arginine helps to solve this problem with its vasodilating effects.

– Treatment of chest pain (angina), peripheral arterial disease (narrowing of blood vessels that causes poor blood flow in the organs) and high blood pressure

– Pre-eclampsia (a complication of pregnancy characterized by high blood pressure and the presence of protein in the urine) and high blood pressure during pregnancy are other problems for which L-arginine is helpful.

– L-arginine may also help in other conditions, including diabetes, male infertility, migraine, obesity, reducing waist circumference (especially in women), improving baby weight gain by taking during pregnancy, improving physical performance in the elderly, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCO), children’s growth, bedsores, prevention of colds and finally skin inflammations caused by radiation therapy.
