L-arginine is important for the body because it has a stimulating effect and dilates the blood vessels. It improves the fat and protein metabolism, the nutrient supply into the muscle cells and thus the performance of the body. L-arginine can also help build muscle while reducing fat and boosts the immune system. In a 2010 study by Exeter University, it was shown that arginine can increase athletic performance by up to 20 percent. The reason for this is that arginine supports the release of growth hormones, thus stimulating muscle growth. First of all, because it assists muscle growth, it is particularly suitable for helping the male body to convert fats and store proteins. Also, the growth effect of L-arginine on the body is essential for bodybuilding. The vasodilator effect of arginine is particularly good at preventing hypertension and positively affecting the cardiovascular system. This too is of advantage to the male body, as more men suffer from high blood pressure and a high risk of a heart attack. In addition, arginine stimulates the production of white blood cells that strengthen our immune system. Also, the protein metabolism is stimulated, as well as the fat-burning, as scientists of Texas A & M University discovered in a new study.
