What is L-arginine?
L-arginine is a non-essential amino acid, meaning it can be synthesized in the body. However, in many children and people with certain conditions l-arginine is considered semi-essential. L-arginine is essential for the production of protein, to help the body remove ammonia and to release insulin. L-arginine also makes a compound that relaxes the blood vessels called nitric oxide. This amino acid can be sourced in many plant and animal proteins including meats, eggs, dairy products and nuts. L-arginine has many benefits and is often supplemented.
