L arginine is an essential amino acid. It is obtained from the diet and is necessary for the body to produce the proteins. L arginine is found in red meat, poultry meat and dairy products. Arginine is a precursor molecule of nitric oxide. For the discovery of this mechanism was awarded in 1998 the Nobel Prize in medicine.
If a greater amount of arginine is supplied, the level of nitric oxide in the blood increases, and, among other effects, a dilation of the walls of the blood vessels is achieved and with it a better blood supply in general. In addition, the increase in arginine increases levels of nitrogen oxide, which helps the elasticity of the arteries. This positive effect acts as a reducer of blood pressure and favours, among other corporal actions, the erection.
In addition, nutrients and oxygen also reach the organs more quickly through the blood, which results in an improvement in sexual potency, performance and endurance. It acts as a reducer of blood pressure and promotes filling of the cavernous limbs and irrigation in the genital areas of both men and women.
