L-Arginine is a chemical compound classified among the twenty main Amino Acids that make up Proteins. Studies conducted in Texas A&M laboratories have shown that supplements with Arginine promote the reduction of fat mass, while increasing muscle mass. In theory, thanks to the Nitric Oxide (NO) contained in L-Arginine, it favors increased muscle growth, and burns more sugar and fat than protein.
L-Arginine, converted in the body to Nitric Oxide (N.O.), causes the blood vessels to dilate and thus improves blood flow. Nitric Oxide is a substance that acts as a vasodilator, antiplatelet agent, reduces vascular resistance, relaxes the endothelium, limits the appearance of atherosclerosis, and favors the immune response. N.O. production increases the supply of blood and nutrients to the muscle, and is increased by the contractile activity of the muscle. Nitric Oxide also regulates muscle functions such as the production of force, muscle blood flow, differentiation of muscle cells, cellular respiration, and balance of glucose metabolism.
