Features and Benefits
- May help support a modest improvement in exercise capacity in individuals with stable cardiovascular disease (CVD)
- Supports protein synthesis
- Helps replenish arginine levels during times of stress
- Used to make nitric oxide, a compound in the body that helps relax blood vessels and improve blood flow
Natural Factors L-Arginine 500 mg is a non-essential amino acid involved in protein synthesis. It may help support a modest improvement in exercise capacity in individuals with stable cardiovascular disease (CVD). As a free-form amino acid, L-arginine is easier for the body to absorb and use than when consumed from food.
|Each capsule contains:|
|L-arginine (hydrochloride)||500 mg|
Non-medicinal IngredientsRice starch, vegetarian capsule (carbohydrate gum [cellulose], purified water), vegetable grade magnesium stearate (lubricant).
DosageRecommended adult dose: 4 capsules 3 times daily with meals or as directed by a health care practitioner. If you suffer from a cardiovascular disease, consult a health care practitioner for use beyond 6 weeks.
Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you have a renal/kidney disease, are following a low protein diet, suffer from a cardiovascular disease and are attempting an increase in physical activity, are pregnant or breastfeeding, or are taking blood thinners or medication for a cardiovascular disease or an erectile dysfunction. Consult a health care practitioner if your cardiovascular condition worsens. Some people may experience gastrointestinal discomfort (such as diarrhea). Do not use if you have had a myocardial infarction (heart attack). Keep out of the reach of children.
Contains no artificial colours, preservatives, or sweeteners; no dairy, sugar, wheat, gluten, yeast, soy, corn, egg, fish, shellfish, animal products, salt, tree nuts, or GMOs. Suitable for vegetarians/vegans.

L-arginine is aconditionally essential amino acid, which means although it can be manufacturedby the body, during times of illness, stress, and recovery from injury, thebody may need more than it can produce on its own. L-arginine plays a criticalrole in the production of nitric oxide, a substance that relaxes blood vessels,helping to improve blood flow. A deficiency of L-arginine can disrupt manycellular functions in the body, including those of the blood vessels.
As a free-formamino acid, L-arginine is easier for the body to absorb and use than whenconsumed in the form of protein from food, such as dairy, meat, and fish. Availablein two strengths, L-arginine is free from preservatives, sweeteners, gluten, andGMOs. L-arginine is a great choice for people who want to improve theirexercise capacity, are under high levels of stress, or are involved in intensephysical training.
