L-arginine is an amino acid.
- Necessary for the production of protein
- Helps rid the body of ammonia
- Stimulates the release of insulin
- Used to make nitric oxide
Substrate of nitric oxide synthase, which is converted to citrulline and nitric oxide (NO). Induces insulin release by a nitric oxide-dependent mechanism.
