Referred to by scientists as the ‘Mircale Molecule’, L-Arginine was part of a study that won the Nobel Prize in medicine in 1998. L-Arginine is commonly used for its vasodilatory properties through its ability to promote the synthesis of Nitric Oxide. This means that it widens your blood vessels enhancing the delivery of blood to your organs, muscles and joints. A consequence of getting more blood to your muscles and joints is twofold, 1.) More oxygen is delivered to those areas which is integral to the healing process, and 2.) More nutrients and healing agents can reach the injured area promoting recovery.
