"Available evidence shows that physiological levels of arginine and nitric oxide (NO) promote fat oxidation and decrease fat synthesis…" notes a new study published in the Feb 2009 issue of the Journal of Nutrition.
The amino acid L-arginine is the precursor to an important chemical in the body called nitric oxide (NO).
There is more to this story, but I will publish each point as a separate video in order to keep them short and so I can highlight each point.
