What is it?
L-arginine hydrochloride is the salt form of L-arginine. L-arginine is a conditionally essential amino acid which means in cases such as over-training or wound healing, you may need to supplement with it.
Benefits of L-Arginine HCl Powder include
- Promotes a healthy immune system
- Promotes nitric oxide production via the nitric oxide synthase enzymes.
- Promotes faster healing of wounds (1)
- Increased athletic performance by increasing nitric oxide stimulation.
- Fewer stomach issues than the standard Arginine base.
In regards to athletes:
Arginine has been demonstrated to increase blood flow or your "pump" via nitric oxide production. However, there are some studies that show this and some that counter this. Illness, over-training, and stress may deplete natural arginine levels, therefore supplementation may be needed.
In regards to male potency:
Once thought to be a natural erectile dysfunction solution, arginine has at least one reputable study that shows benefit in this area when used in conjunction with glycine propionyl-L-carnitine. You can read the study in Andrologia here.
In regards to wound healing:
When we injury ourselves, have surgery, or any situation where there is a wound, we want to heal those quickly. Since arginine promotes nitric oxide production, there is a connection with decreased wound healing time. Nitric oxide increases oxygen and blood flow to the wound, thus increasing collagen formation and reducing inflammation. This process leads to accelerated wound healing. Certain disease states such as hypertension or diabetes may find this beneficial.
Instructions for Use
As a dietary supplement, take 1/4 (1g) teaspoonful up to twice daily, on an empty stomach, or as directed by a physician. When mixing the powder, stir with a spoon for 15-30 seconds to completely dissolve.* Please note this powder does taste bitter/sour, but better than plain l-arginine
