Arginine is an amino acid that is used in cosmetics and skincare products that are used to help protect the skin from free radicals, increase the skin’s visible hydration levels, and potentially support collagen production.
In 1886, arginine was first isolated from lupin and pumpkin seedlings by the German chemist Ernst Schulze. It is an alpha-amino acid that is used in the biosynthesis of proteins. In addition to building protein, arginine releases nitric oxide in the blood. Nitric oxide dilates blood vessels in the bloodstream, which may help microcirculation. Arginine also plays an important role in cell division, wound healing, immune function, the release of hormones, and the production of growth hormone.
Arginine can be found in animal products such as meat, dairy, and eggs, as well as several plant sources including grains, beans, and nuts. Arginine is also available as an oral supplement. Most healthy people do not need to supplement with arginine because it is a component of all protein-containing foods and can also be synthesized by the body.
