L-Arginine information from DrugsUpdate  

See Available Brands of L-Arginine in India

L-Arginine is a non-essential amino acid that is biosynthesized by protein metabolism. In certain cases, such as chronic infections and trauma, biosynthesis of L-Arginine is impaired in humans that result in biochemical abnormalities. Individuals without endogenous L-Arginine need external supplementation, and in such cases L-Arginine is considered as a semi-essential amino acid. Foods such as peanuts, milk, eggs and soy proteins are the richest sources of L-Arginine.
