What is L-arginine Magic?

L-arginine is an essential amino acid. It is a building block of protein. It is made in great abundance from the dietary intake... when we are younger. It gets        progressively lower as we get older.

L-arginine is otherwise referred to as l arginine, arginine, arginin and so on...

L arginine is one of the supplement that lower blood pressure.

L-arginine is useful in so many, very important activities in our body... that you will learn about shortly.  Most importantly, it is very essential in the production of Nitric Oxide ...  (NO)

Nitric Oxide (NO) is made through a complicated process.... greatly simplified in    the following explanation.

Larginine is a raw material, and the protein building block, that reacts with a special enzyme called, Endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase (eNOS) for the Nitric Oxide (NO) to be manufactured from the larginine... inside the endothelium... the inner lining of the blood vessels.

As described above, arginine is a precursor of Nitric Oxide, which is composed of one molecule of Nitrogen and one of Oxygen.

Nitric oxide is one of the molecule that signal very important functions in our bodies, such as:

  • Regulates the oxygenation of the cells
  • Promotes the flexibility and elasticity of an artery, thereby lowering the blood pressure
  • Erectile functions in men.... and other important functions.

There are still more to be learnt from the current and the ongoing larginine research.
