What is L-Arginine?

L-Arginine is a non-essential amino acid that can be produced naturally by the human body, as well as being found in a number of dietary sources, including nuts, dairy, and meat sources. Just because it is non-essential however, this does not mean that arginine supplementation is not beneficial, because truthfully, it is, for a variety of different reasons. Studies have found that increased L-Arginine consumption, can provide a number of benefits for the human body, as well as for the physique, and athletic performance in general. Athletes and bodybuilders often supplement with L-Arginine, and include it in part of their muscle-building supplement stack. The benefits of L-Arginine come from the fact that it plays a vital role in protein synthesis, as well as helping to function as a precursor for the production of Nitroc Oxide, which in itself, helps provide numerous athletic performance advantages to the human body.

How does it work?

Basically, within the body, L-Arginine is converted into Nitric Oxide, which in turn then causes the blood vessels to widen and dilate, due to the fact that Nitric Oxide functions as a potent vasodilator. As the blood vessels widen and expand, this in turn allows more oxygenated blood, rich in nutrients, to pass through the vessels and be transported around the body and delivered to the major organs that happen to require it. On top of that however, it has also been linked with an increase in insulin production and growth hormone production, making it highly beneficial for bodybuilders and individuals looking to increase their lean muscle mass. On top of that, it has been found to play a crucial role in protein synthesis, making it essential for the growth and repair of muscle tissues, especially tissues following an extensive workout.

What are the main benefits of L-Arginine?

We’ve touched upon the main benefits associated with L-Arginine, now it’s time to look at them in more detail. Some of the main benefits include:

Improved athletic performance

One of the main reasons why this amino acid has been found to play such a key role in athletic performance, is all down to the fact that it is converted into Nitric Oxide. This Nitric Oxide dilates the blood vessels and allows more oxygenated rich blood to be carried around them. More oxygen and nutrients can therefore be supplied to the awaiting muscle cells in the body, which in turn will help to provide them with more energy, so they will be able to function harder and for longer, before they begin to fatigue.

Increased muscle mass

L-Arginine also plays a key role in protein synthesis, which is when the body synthesises new muscle proteins to replace worn and damaged ones as a result of an extensive workout or bout of strenuous physical exercise. Protein synthesis plays a key role in post-workout growth and recovery, making L-Arginine a very beneficial amino acid in terms of post-workout recovery.

Increased muscle pumps and vascularity

Ok, whilst vascularity and muscle pumps don’t provide any long-term benefits, they are able to serve as very beneficial motivational tools in the gym, which could help to spur you on and keep your motivation levels through the roof. Put simply, if you look better as you lift, this will serve as a psychological boost and so you’re far more likely to work that little bit harder in the gym.

Other benefits include:

  • Increased muscle mass
  • Enhanced recovery
  • Reduced DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness)
  • Increased vascularity and muscle pumps
  • Increased athletic ability and endurance
  • Promotes the release of essential hormones
  • Can help reduce the likelihood of hypertension, strokes, cardiovascular disease, and renal failure
  • And much more...

How and when should it be consumed?

Health Canada Recommended Dose (powder): Adults: 1 Scoop(s) 1 - 4 time(s) per day.

Arginine VS Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate

Though they come from the same sources, L-Arginine and L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate, or AAKG for short, are two very different supplements. AAKG for example, contains a salt derived from glutaric acid which plays a key role in the Krebs cycle of the human body. L-Arginine for example, has been found to play a much wider role in a person’s health and well-being, whereas AAKG is based more upon athletic performance.

What can it be stacked with?

As L-Glutamine plays such an important role in athletic performance and indeed in post-workout recovery as well, it can be stacked with a number of other supplements considered beneficial for gaining muscle mass. Common supplements that can be stacked with L-Arginine include: whey protein, creatine monohydrate, L-Glutamine, and Dextrose.

Not noticing much difference

In the beginning I noticed that it helped relieve some chronic pain in my lower body. However after using it for a while longer (about 2 weeks), I haven't noticed much difference in my state anymore. It is what it is.
