There’s arginine and then there’s L-arginine. What’s the difference? Well, they’re actually the same amino acid (a building block for your body) with the same bonds between the same molecules, but they differ in their configuration. If they were songs, arginine would be the hit song and L-arginine would be the remix: same song—different arrangement.

If you’ve been reading the Sante Global blog for a while, you know that arginine is an essential amino acid found in the body as well as certain foods we eat like red meat, poultry and dairy products. It’s also available in Sante Global’s “Arginine Infusion” nutritional supplement—in the form of L-arginine.

Arginine is typically used as an overall term, while L-arginine is used with regards to supplements and the fact that this form is a specific form of arginine. Did you know, for instance, there’s D-arginine? That is one that’s used in lab research.


For purposes of a person’s health and well-being, L-arginine is what you’d take to improve heart health, blood flow, and more. It’s the one that helps stimulate the release of growth hormone and insulin, too.

Remember this: arginine and L-arginine are essentially the same, but the form you’d find in supplements like “Arginine Infusion” is L-arginine.


Sante Global’s “Arginine Infusion” is a powdered, berry-blend flavored combination of L-arginine and L-citrulline which work to increase your body’s production levels of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to open wider for improved blood flow.


When you’re looking to improve your overall cardiovascular health, supplements like “Arginine Infusion” may truly help your situation.
