How Arginine Works

L-Arginine creates nitric oxide in the human body, helping to improve circulationand maintain nitrogen balance.
Deficiency is rare, low levels of arginine may produce symptoms such as impaired insulin production as well as possible hair loss.

L-Arginine is a precursor of nitric oxide (NO) in the human body. NO an essential compound that helps blood circulation, and is important to normal sexual function in both men and women. Insufficient blood flow is a major cause of incomplete erection in men. L-Arginine has been shown to improve blood flow to the genital area by dilating blood vessels and helping the penis to enlarge to its full capacity, thus increasing the size, hardness and frequency of erections.

L-Arginine has a similar effect in women. Higher blood flow makes clitoral and vaginal tissues more sensitive and responsive to sexual stimulation, and helps increase the possibility of reaching orgasm. Studies have shown that postmenopausal women taking supplements including L-arginine experienced heightened sexual response.

73.5% of the women who took a supplement including L-arginine experienced greater sexual satisfaction, including heightened desire and clitoral sensation, frequency of intercourse and orgasm, and less vaginal dryness.

NOTE: Sexual dysfunction can be caused by a number of reasons. L-arginine may be effective only in those whose dysfunction is due to low levels of nitric oxide.

Arginine to Build Muscle

Arginine is a natural catalyst for the bodies natural production of the blood gas Nitric Oxide. The blood gas Nitric Oxide facilitates vascular dilation, actual increased diameter of the blood vessels. Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate, AAKG, is the best catalyst for Nitric Oxide synthesis. The best results have been achieved with Arginine was used in conjunction with Glutamine. Glutamine is the primary source for nitrogen in the muscles.
