View larger Product Profile First isolated from a lupine seedling and characterized in 1886, L-arginine is one of the twenty typical a-amino acids used as building blocks for protein. As such, it is present in a wide variety of foods of both plant and animal origin with particularly high levels found in eggs, almonds, spinach, and lobster. L-arginine is considered to be conditionally essential, meaning that for most adults adequate levels of arginine can be obtained from the diet or through biosynthesis/recycling. However during growth, and at other times when positive nitrogen balance is required, such as during healing, diet, and biosynthesis, may not meet arginine needs since the rate of biosynthesis does not compensate for depletion or inadequate supply. In addition, research evaluating the effects of arginine on the structure and function of the body often utilizes serving sizes in the multi-gram range, which may be difficult to achieve with food alone.

Nitric oxide synthase (NOS) generates NO from L-arginine, producing citrulline as a byproduct. The recycling of citrulline back to L-arginine is possible via the citrulline-arginine pathway, but it is an energy intensive and inefficient process that the body does not rely on for its arginine needs.

NO is a critical mediator of vascular regulation, immune activity, and endocrine function. When it comes to the cardiovascular system, this gaseous messenger has a number of effects. It is necessary for endothelium-dependent vasodilation, allowing blood vessels to relax and widen. As such, the role of NO in maintaining healthy blood pressure has been studied in depth. In addition, NO also modulates platelet aggregation and the inflammat
