Arginine (2-Amino-5-guanidinopentanoic acid) is a basic, polar amino acid. Among the stereoisomers, the L form of arginine is the only physiologically active one.

L-arginine has been one of the amino acids with huge commercial prospects. The presence of L-arginine is critical for instigating the antioxidant response and suppressing acute inflammation. Hence, administration of L-arginine can be used to impart many therapeutic benefits, including improving heart health and reduce the neural inflammation associated with ischemic stroke. Many hair-care formulations containing L-arginine has been available in the market. L- arginine has been clinically proven to invigorate hair growth by stimulating the production of nitric oxide that regulate hair follicle activity. Commercial production of L-arginine makes use of high arginine producing mutants of Corynebacterium glutamicum.

Spirulina platensis contains a high concentration of arginine. One of the predominant amino acids in the conchocelis of a red alga, Porphyra dioica is arginine.
