Based on hundreds of studies, L-arginine, an essential amino acid and one of the building blocks of proteins in the body, has become known as a safe and effective prosexual nutrient for men and women.
L-Arginine is a precursor of nitric oxide (NO) in the human body. In the 1990s, scientists discovered that not only is NO an essential compound that helps blood circulation, but it is important to normal sexual function in both men and women. Higher blood flow makes clitoral and vaginal tissues more sensitive and responsive to sexual stimulation and helps in- crease the possibility of reaching orgasm. Another study involving 77 women of all ages found that af- ter four weeks, 73.5% of the women who took a supplement including L-Arginine experienced greater sexual satisfaction, including heightened desire and clitoral sensation, frequency of intercourse and orgasm, and less vaginal dryness.
L-arginine is thought to improve the reproductive health of both men and women because:
- It increases blood circulation to the uterus, ovaries and genitals:
Increased blood flow can improve re- productive health. L-arginine allows for better blood circulation to the ovaries, al- lowing for optimum egg production. The increased blood flow to the uterus also creates a better environment to allow the implantation of a fertilized egg. Blood flow is important for the proper function-ing of the reproductive organs, and may improve the chances of conception.
- It increases Nitric Oxide levels – L-arginine is used by the body to create Nitric Oxide (NO):
Research has found that increased NO levels supports healthy inflammation levels which may help to prevent uterine fertility issues such as fibroids, endo- metriosis and PCOS. Inflammation is a contributing factor to a number of fertility issues shown to negatively impact con-ception and implantation.
- Improve the production of cervi- cal mucous:
The increased blood flow to the repro- ductive organs can aid in the production of cervical mucous. Abnormal mucous production contributes to the challenges faced by around 1 in 20 women dealing with fertility issues. Some women do not produce enough cervical mucous, and oth- ers produce a mucous that is too thick for sperm to travel through. L-arginine can en- courage better production of cervical mu- cous through improved blood flow.
