Arginine or ‘L-Arginine’ is a conditionally essential amino acid, which can be found in many foods. It is highest in protein rich foods such as whey protein, cheeses, milk, meats (e.g. ham, beef, chicken, fish), oats, nuts, chickpeas and similar.

As a dietary supplement it is often used by athletes and fitness enthusiasts due to its involvement in the production of nitric oxide and therefore blood flow and nutrient delivery.

A benefit of having L-Arginine as a dietary supplement is that it’s an isolated amino acid, without the other amino acids alongside. They can be concentrated, making it more noticeable in a short period of time. Furthermore the concentrated form comes without the associated calories and volume which you’d need to consume were you to get the same total amount of L-Arginine from food.

Outside of the potential benefits regarding blood flow, it has been widely touted as having benefits for those suffering with certain chronic conditions such as type II diabetes and hypertension. This is due to these particular conditions resulting in a generalised L-Arginine deficiency, (as the enzyme that breaks down Arginine, Arginase, is elevated) showing that supplementing with L-Arginine can be beneficial to other systems within the body.

How Much Should I Take?

A pre-workout dose of L-Arginine should be 3-6g.
In order to ensure elevated L-Arginine levels throughout the day, it can also be consumed up to three times per day.
