ARGININE is considered a
semi-essential amino acid. What that means is the body produces ARGININE
normally, but sometimes the body needs more than is available and ARGININE needs
to be supplemented.
Food sources such as peanuts and almonds are natural sources
of ARGININE, but for those looking to enhance athletic performance or increase
lean muscle mass, it is difficult to derive the amount required by the body in
optimal results from food sources.
