The importance of L-arginine cannot be overstated. It is one of the most common amino acids which are found in foods we consume, with numerous benefits on health. Even though it isn’t technically an essential amino acid, is very important in our overall health as it has many very essential functions.
Almost everyone can benefit from getting extra L-arginine in their diet, via supplementation, or consuming foods that are known to be rich in this amino acid. This is especially important in older men who tend to possess lower levels of L-arginine, and benefit significantly from increasing it as it is responsible for many functions such as the determining of erectile potency.

Arginine can only be produced by an adult body, but only in very small quantities. Therefore, we can supplement arginine to support its effects in the body.
The average intake of L-arginine in food is about 5.4 g per day. The recommended daily dose of arginine supplement, however, is not strictly defined.
However, the usual dose ranges from 3 to 6 grams, although no side effects have been reported with a daily dose of L-arginine up to 20 g.
However, always check the indicated dose on the package before taking the supplement. We also recommend taking arginine with food to avoid possible laxative effects.
