L-Arginine and Men's Sexual Health

Posted Nov 19 2010 11:25pm
If you haven’t been getting the pleasure you deserve and desire from sex, it may be because you have a deficiency of the essential amino acid L-arginine.

L-arginine is found in protein meat, eggs, milk, cheese and so forth. And it’s critical to your sexual health, with deficiencies linked to decreased sexual desire and reduced sexual function.

Men who’ve tried it report that L-arginine dramatically increases their desire for sex, provides more pleasurable sexual experiences, promotes greater endurance, and helps them achieve longer and more intense orgasms.

L-arginine works by stimulating the production of a crucial compound in your body called nitric oxide. Nitric oxide dilates your blood vessels, which promotes blood flow to your genital tissues and helps them become fully engorged. This dramatically increases your sensitivity and enjoyment.

According to a study conducted at Canada’s University of Alberta and published in Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology, rising nitric oxide levels also help lower your blood pressure, something long associated with sexual dysfunction, by relaxing your arteries and helping restore their youthful elasticity.

The increased blood flow L-arginine releases can bring you harder, larger, longer-lasting and more frequent erections. And it’s especially helpful if you’ve ever suffered from erectile dysfunction or an incomplete erection caused by insufficient blood flow.

Better yet, studies also suggest that L-arginine can improve male fertility by increasing both sperm count and motility.
