L-Arginine Beneficial for Preeclampsia

The results of this study indicate that the addition of L-arginine to standard therapy prolonged pregnancy in women with preeclampsia, allowed for the use of lower doses of antihypertensive medication, and improved neonatal outcomes.

As a precursor to nitric oxide, L-arginine functions as a vasodilator, which may explain its antihypertensive action in this study. The amount of L-arginine used was relatively low, considering that a typical diet provides at least 5 g/day of this amino acid.
