Biliary dyskinesia and L-arginine?

Is there any correlation between biliary dyskinesia and L-arginine? I heard L-arginine affects the sphincter of the oddi, which is the cause to my biliary dyskinesia if I'm not mistaken. Does the L-arginine help or hurt? Or is it neutral?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

There are no scientific studies to show that L-arginine is helpful with gallbladder dyskinesia. But there is no harm in trying as L-arginine is an essential amino acid.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
