Arginine, also known as L-Arginine, is a highly functional amino acid. Thanks to it, not only nitrogen-rich proteins are produced, but also the smallest messenger substance in the human body: nitric oxide. This small signal molecule ensures relaxation and expansion of the vascular muscles. In this way, L-arginine makes a significant contribution to reducing high blood pressure. The elucidation of this function was even honoured with the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1998.
Although the body is able to produce L-Arginine itself, it is not able to produce it in sufficient quantities. Besides a balanced diet with nuts or almonds, the amino acid can also be absorbed through the skin. This is where it plays out its full power: As in the rest of the body, it also ensures good blood circulation in the skin capillaries: not only do the face and hands look fresher, the hair also grows stronger again.
Arginine is also contained in our amino acid complex.
