L-Arginine is an important amino acid found in plant and animal protein and also formed in the body under normal physiological conditions. However, in certain conditions the body cannot produce enough L-arginine to meet its needs for tissue repair, immune function, nitric oxide formation, and other crucial roles.
Supplementation with L-Arginine can become essential in order to meet the body’s increased demand for L-arginine during periods of increased physical stress or illness.
Some of the key benefits and actions of L-Arginine include:
Nitric oxide synthesis: Nitric oxide, a molecule produced in all body tissues, serves an important role in the cardiovascular, immune, endocrine, and nervous systems in the body. L-arginine is a precursor to nitric oxide and may thus exert positive effects on platelets, blood vessel function, blood pressure regulation, and protection against oxidative stress.
Wound repair: The stress associated with tissue trauma, including surgery, burns, and sepsis conditions, increases demands on the body to supply L-Arginine for wound healing. Supplements of L-arginine during these times can improve nitrogen balance and speed healing.
Immune system support: L-Arginine can help modulate the immune system and reduce the incidence of postoperative infections.
