L Arginine

What does L Arginine do for the body

L Arginine or Arginine is an Amino Acid. It is synthesized within the Body. The Body needs to make protein by the creation of creatinine and to create urea. It is necessary for the removal of toxic Ammonia from the Body. It is used to make compounds in the body like L glutamate and L proline. It provides energy by converting Glucose to Glycogen. L Arginine aids Vasodilation.
L Arginine converts to Nitric Oxide ( NO ) by the action of Nitric Oxide Synthase enzyme ( eNOS ). NO level in the Body decreases by age. It affects the male libido and causes Erectile Dysfunction, Sexual debility and Impotency. L Arginine stimulates Penile Erection by improving the blood circulation. NO helps the Body as when to relax and widen the muscles. When Penile muscles relax, the blood vessels dilate. Penile chambers then swell because of increased blood flow due to dilated blood vessels. Blood then traps in the erectile tissue. This promotes longer erection and frequent arousal.
