L-Arginine Powder by Now Foods is a food supplement that provides a dose of L-Arginine in powder. Arginine is a semi-essential amino acid with important physiological functions that intervene principally in the metabolism and excretion of urea, as well as in the synthesis of DNA.
Amongst its functions of note is its role as precursor to nitric oxide, a molecule produced from arginine by the nitric oxide synthase enzyme in many tissues and which in the vascular endothelium behaves as a vasodilator, antiatherogenic and platelet antiaggregant.
This is why arginine can be beneficial for certain medical conditions that improve with vasodilation, such as angina, obstructed arteries (arteriosclerosis), afflictions of the coronary arteries, erectile dysfunction, heart failure, intermittent claudication/intermittent vascular disease and inflammation of the blood vessels that cause headaches (vascular headaches). In the world of sport, vasodilation can favour muscle development and recovery by permitting a larger quantity of nutrients and oxygen to reach the muscle tissue.
Arginine also improves the healing of wounds, helps eliminate surplus ammonia from the organism, stimulates the immune function and favours the secretion of various hormones, such as insulin and growth hormone, and also favours the increased production of sperm (spermatogenesis).
