Importance of the L-Arginine during intensive training.

Arginine is an amino acid showing important biological activity. The presence of arginine, among others, leads to increased production of nitric oxide (NO), improves the blood supply to organs (Muscles, brain, heart or penis), helps with body detoxification and improves regeneration. 
Unfortunately, the production of L-arginine in the human body becomes limited over time, due to the naturally progressive aging process. 
Arginine can be found in the right diet. The main source of arginine is meat, dairy products as well as some of the vegetables. Sometimes you can support your diet with supplements.
Due to the increased production of nitric oxide (NO) by the Arginine, it has an extremely strong effect on the blood vessels throughout the body by reducing its tension. This causes vasodilatation, which in turn increases blood flow and the amount of oxygen and nutrients supplied to the tissues. This affects the heart, brain, muscles and .... your penis. It improves erection and pleasure in sexual life because it increases the amount of blood flowing through the penis.
Arginine deficiency increase during heavy exercise/training. 
1. Arginine stimulates the immune system. Arginine is also  slowing down the development of some cancerous processes by reducing the production of selected proteins;
2. It helps to control metabolism by being an extremely important component in the urea cycle. It helps to remove harmful ammonia from the body transforming it into urea, which is safely removed by the kidneys;
3. Arginine is regulating certain hormones, including growth hormone, insulin, glucagon, and prolactin;
4. Arginine helps to speed up muscles and tissue recovery. Helps to heal burns and wounds quicker also speeds up the muscle regeneration after intense training.
5. L-Arginine is a powerful antioxidant because it helps to reduce the number of free oxygen molecules in the body. For this reason, arginine improves the regeneration of the body, especially post-workout.
What to eat to supply L-Arginine to your body?
-red meat - pork, beef,
-nuts, especially peanuts, almonds, walnuts or cashews,
-whole grains (bread, pasta),
-soy, lentils,
-tuna, salmon, prawns,
-eggs, mainly their yolks.
L-arginine: side effects
Long-term L-arginine supplementation is dangerous to health. Excess l-arginine causes the production of excessive amounts of nitric oxide, which changes its beneficial effects to harmful. It leads to increased blood pressure, reduces the elasticity of the blood vessel walls, left ventricular hypertrophy, decreased myocardial performance, increases the risk of heart attacks. Excess contributes to the reduction of resistance to infections, kidney fibrosis, intensification of gastric problems and cause dryness of the skin.

L-arginine: acceptable doses
It is recommended that the daily intake of l-arginine by healthy people should be within 4 to 6 g per day. It is estimated that the intake of this amino acid with the diet is 3-6 g per day, so it covers the daily need for this amino acid.
