Arginine is considered a non-essential amino acid although research indicates that it is 'conditionally essential', in that the body may not be able to manufacture sufficient amounts in times of rapid growth, trauma and other physical stresses. For this reason research has been carried out on the use of arginine supplementation to help aid recovery.
Arginine is required for optimum growth and takes part in the release of the growth hormone. It is the immediate precursor of Ornithine, which also plays a role in the urea cycle. Arginine is concerned in the removal from the body of ammonia which is a waste product of nitrogen metabolism.
A variety of functions depend upon a sufficiency of arginine e.g. glucose tolerance, insulin production and liver lipid metabolism.
