L Arginine has several functions and health benefits. L Arginine is an amino acid that promotes heart health. It stimulates nitric oxide, acompound involved in circulatory andimmune function. Nitric oxide is degradedvery rapidly after its formation.

L-Arginine serves as the precursor for continued nitricoxide production. Arginine is considered a semi-essential amino acid, as it does not fall perfectly into the essential or non-essential categories.

Arginine can be made in the body at adequate levels for maintenance in adults. It may not, however, be produced quickly enough during periods of growth, and is considered essential at those times.

Arginine is also essential in muscle metabolism because it provides a vehicle for transport, storage and excretion of nitrogen. L arginine is an important component in tissue generation and regeneration. It is highly concentrated in the skin and connective tissue and helps to remove ammonia from the body as part of the urea cycle. It also stimulates certain glands, particularly the thymus and the pituitary and because the pituitary secretes growth hormone, arginine is also required for normal growth.

Due to its role in growth, it has become very popular among athletes interested in muscle-building and fat-burning. Solgar offers several different L Arginine supplement products, either as a single L-Arginine supplement, or supplements that combine arginine with ornithine, which may be useful, depending on your need, or suspected arginine deficiency.
