Table of contents
L-Arginine 1000mg by HSN Essentials is a nutritional supplement in vegetable capsules that provides an optimal intake of L-Arginine in the form of L-Arginine Hydrochloride, which is one of the most bioavailable types.
Arginine is an amino acid that our body synthesizes naturally. However, it is regarded as a conditionally essential amino acid, since the endogenous synthesis of arginine does not meet the needs of our body. Especially if we are active and carry out physical activities regularly.
L-arginine by HSN Essentials has been obtained through a vegetable fermentation process, which means that it is a nutritional supplement suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Arginine is involved in multiple important bodily functions. It actively participates in the protein synthesis, it is indispensable for the muscle development if it is accompanied by a strength workout.
Arginine also contributes to the synthesis of nitric oxide in the organism, since it is one of its main precursors. Nitric oxide dilates blood vessels, which increases the blood flow, enabling a larger amount of nutrients and oxygen to reach the muscle tissue. This accelerates the recovery processes and the growth of muscle.
The formation of nitric oxide through arginine means that it is also linked with a positive effect on coronary and circulatory diseases.
We can claim that arginine contributes to the synthesis of creatinine and nitric oxide, with an important function in the dilation and relaxation of the blood vessels.
The decrease of the growth hormone in the body with aging is an important reason that causes the deterioration of the muscle mass and the increase of body fat. This also produces a reduction of the growth and regeneration of the skin, which results in a thinner and less flexible skin. This aspect can be partially solved by the supplementation with arginine, because it releases the growth hormone in a natural way. The effect is even more remarkable if a workout plan is included, as shown in the following study.
Arginine as a hormone precursor is safe and can be used by those people, young people in this case, that stopped growing at least 5 years ago, in order to notice the benefits.
Arginine is also beneficial for accelerating the healing of wounds. Proline is produced from Arginine, which in turn favors the synthesis of collagen. This facilitates the formation of new tissues and therefore, healing.
Arginine also helps to strengthen the immune system. Although on this point the mechanism by which it acts has not been clearly established, the consumption of arginine has shown improvements in the thymic system (the thymus), the lymphocytic activity, and the neutrophilic action.
It reduces inflammation and improves the health of the blood vessels and the cardiovascular system. This is due to its ability to prevent arterial hypertension, improving the blood flow in people with obstructed arteries, and treats cholesterol in order to reduce its levels in blood. This helps to alleviate a congestive heart failure, improves endurance, and reduces the symptoms that are associated to the obstruction of the blood flow from the heart to the extremities (phenomenon called claudication), as can be seen in this study.
Another important benefit is that it reduces inflammation and boosts the immune function. This can be explained thanks to its properties for neutralizing the free radicals and their effects on the superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme. Arginine is an essential amino acid that plays an important role in the immune system.
It improves the sports capacity thanks to the increase of nutrients transport and of the oxygenation of the muscle. The result will be a higher quality workout sessions, with extra endurance, especially aerobic endurance, as well as better vasodilation in load workouts. It also supports sportspeople with certain pathologies such as poor blood circulation, joint injuries, or the syndrome of cold hands and feet.
Due to its vasodilatory effects, such as the improvement in the blood flow, it may result in an improvement in the vascular endothelial activity of the penis. In this way, it is possible to improve the male sexual function and provide more pleasurable sexual relations.
