Biochem/physiol Actions

L-Arginine is a dibasic, semi-essential amino acid. It acts as a precursor for creatinine and is a natural constituent of most of the dietary proteins.
Substrate of nitric oxide synthase, which is converted to citrulline and nitric oxide (NO). Induces insulin release by a nitric oxide-dependent mechanism.
