Question
Hi
Do you have any experiance with this amino acid? It is supposed to help with hypertension, erectile disfunction, and losing stubborn fat-three things I need help with!
Thanks!

Answer
Hi,

L-arginine is used to make the nitric oxide, a compound in the body that relaxes blood vessels, increases blood flow, and improves blood vessel function. So blood vessels in the penis dilate, increasing blood flow, which helps maintain an erection .So it will help with capillary blood flow and hence erectile dysfunction.

It is similar to Viagra, except Viagra blocks an enzyme called PDE5 which destroys nitric oxide and L-arginine is used to make nitric oxide.

But it may also result in indigestion, nausea, and headache from the nitric oxide in the blood.

I know you should not use it after a heart attack as studies have shown it to be fatal.

Not sure about stubborn fat. But the blood flow increase should help hypertension.

L-arginine may also change potassium levels, especially in people with liver disease and may also alter the levels of other chemicals and electrolytes in the body like chloride, sodium, and phosphate.

Thanks.
