L-Arginine is a conditionally essential basic amino acid involved primarily in urea metabolism and excretion, as well as DNA synthesis. L-Arginine is the substrate for the synthesis of nitric oxide (NO), a cell-derived relaxing factor that is essential for regulating vascular tone and blood flow. It also supports the manufacture of creatine, an energy substrate for muscles. 95% of creatine is located in the skeletal muscle. This powder version allows for controlled dosing.

Adults: Improvement in exercise capacity in individuals with stable CVD: Take 2 to 3 level teaspoons (4.6 g to 6.9 g), 2 to 3 times per day between meals or at bedtime with a drink. Do not exceed 8 g per single dose or 21 g per day. Consult a health care practitioner for use beyond 12 weeks.
