What exactly is the arginine amino acid? L-Arginine or Arginine is a powerful amino acid. It is such an important amino acid due to the role it plays in nitric oxide synthesis and thus indirectly on most bodily functions. Nitric oxide plays an important role as a free radical in the immune system and cardiovascular health.
But in the middle years, the years of fertility, it is readily available through the breakdown of certain foods. The problem is that most people don’t want to or can’t remember to eat right for what they hope to achieve. It is then that supplementation transdermally of l-arginine becomes the choice for many. Using an Arginine cream is much easier than taking pills or remembering to adhere to a special diet. We do however, advocate the diet because of the many benefits but we can’t twist your arm.
