Arginine is an 'essential' amino acid for children in the growth phase, while for adults it is defined as 'conditionally' essential, since it can be synthesised by the body particularly in the kidney and liver. It is introduced from the diet through meat, dried fruit, and certain protein-rich plant foods (such as legumes), the importance of its functions being highlighted with those undergoing particular psychophysical stress, particularly restrictive diets, physical trauma, burns, major catabolic situations and convalescence.
The roles identified at the level of our organism are many, although particularly with regard to body building, the main one is related to the stimulation of nitric oxide and thus its vasodilatory effect, which promotes oxygenation and nourishment of the muscles involved.
These roles include:
- gluconeogenesis (glucose synthesis) in situations of need;
- support for protein synthesis;
- synthesis of creatine and other amino acid derivatives;
- nitrogenous waste disposal;
- immunostimulating action;
- antioxidant action
- promotes tissue healing processes.
