L-arginine is a naturally-occurring basic amino acid. It participates in many important biochemical reactions associated with the normal physiology of an organism. Arginine Power is a pure form of L-arginine produced by exclusive FermapureTM technology.
Body builders are especially benefited by L-arginine because of its effect on growth hormone levels. Research has shown that consumption of 1 to 2 grams of L-arginine per day, along with weight training, may help decrease body fat. L-arginine is also a necessary amino acid for increased protein synthesis, which in turn promotes cellular replication. Thus, arginine helps people maintain adequate numbers of certain cells.
When L-arginine metabolizes, it produces nitric oxide (NO). Nitric oxide keeps the blood vessels dilated, in turn helping the heart to receive an adequate oxygen supply.
