L-Arginine HCL Powder
L-Arginine is a type of amino acid that works to maintain the integrity of the skin, joints, liver, and muscles. It also helps in maintaining good levels of blood sugar, hormones, and keeps the immune system functioning well.
Arginine is one of the rare amino acids that is considered semi-essential because though the body can manufacture perfectly appropriate amounts of the acid to keep up to normal amounts, every once in a while it may be necessary to supplement it. Arginine is able to support the immune system through its ability to produce T-cells, and it is also supportive of the liver in that it is able to rid the body of toxins. Urea is needed in order for the body to expel Ammonia through the urine however; urea would not be manufactured without Arginine.
Arginine is also helpful in releasing insulin when necessary and in creating and facilitating the creation of important hormones. Arginine helps to stop the restriction of blood flow throughout the body. It allows blood vessels to relax rather than be constricted, dilating them so that there is better flow of oxygen throughout the body.
Health Benefits Provided by L-Arginine HCL
There are many different foods which contain L-Arginine including soy products, barley, almonds and other nuts, raisins, types of cereal, meats, oats, and wheat products including flour. These are all major sources of Arginine. There are some conditions which cause people to not be able to accumulate or produce enough Arginine. If you happen to have one such condition, Arginine supplementation is the best alternative for you. Also, those who are interested in maintaining strict levels of exercise should keep up their levels of Arginine.
Arginine can be found in high concentrations in the skin. Muscles and connective tissues are also supported by the presence of Arginine in the blood. Creatine and nitrogen supplements are generally taken by body builders and exercise enthusiasts because of their ability to create energy and enhance muscle mass respectively. However, the strength and effectiveness of these supplements is determined by Arginine; because without this amino acid, it would be impossible for the body to process these other elements, making Arginine just as important for exercise as either of the other two.

L-ARGININE HCL SIDE EFFECTS
As long as suggested serving sizes are adhered to, no adverse side effects should be experienced. However, taking too much arginine may cause minor side effects such as upset stomach due to an accumulation of extra stomach acid.
