Wound healing is a complex process of replacing injured tissue with new tissue produced by the body. This demands an increased need for energy, protein, and calories, since there are metabolic changes as the body attempts to heal.
Protein is essential for the maintenance and repair of body tissue. L-Arginine is an amino acid, one of the building blocks of protein, with several properties that enhance the wound healing process. Dietary supplementation of L-Arginine has been shown to enhance protein metabolism, decrease muscle loss, increase strength of the wound, and even boost the immune system.
