Overview: L-Norvaline is a derivative of the branch chain amino acid valine and is involved in the indirect increase of nitric oxide levels in the blood.
L-Norvaline is an inhibitor of the enzyme arginase which is used to break down and remove arginine into urea. Arginine has been shown to be a precursor to nitric oxide which is responsible for vasodilation and better “pumps” for weight lifters. Therefore, the inhibiting of arginase will increase the concentration of arginine and more will be converted into nitric oxide.
Common Dosage: 200 to 400 mg per day
