Losing your sexual desire is a sensitive subject, but according to the Journal of the American Medical Association, 43% of women and 31% of men suffer from loss of libido. L-Arginine is an essential amino acid and one of the building blocks of proteins in the body. Research based on hundreds of independent studies has shown L-Arginine to be a safe and effective pro-sexual nutrient for both men and women.
L-Arginine is a precursor of nitric oxide (NO) in the human body. Scientists discovered in the 1990s that NO was an essential compound that helped blood circulation and was also important to normal sexual function in both men and women. Without arginine there would be no nitric oxide and lack of nitric oxide is the cause of erectile dysfunction. Scientific studies published in the British Journal of Urology International highlighted the positive effects of L-Arginine on men with erectile dysfunction and reported significant improvement in their sexual performance.
Fewer studies have been done on L-Arginine supplementation in women. However, one study involving 77 women of all ages found that after a four week period, 73.5% of the women who took a supplement including L-Arginine experienced increased libido and desire. A different study found postmenopausal women who took a supplement which included L-Arginine experienced heightened sexual response.
