Arginine in the form of an easily absorbed powder supplements your diet with L-arginine.
Arginine is a nutritional element from which active biological compounds are formed in the body, namely agmatine and nitric oxide (NO). They are important for figure shaping, developing functional capacity and preserving sexual performance. Arginine enables adequate blood, oxygen and nutrition supply to the muscular tissue, as well as facilitating muscle growth, adipose tissue reduction and erection.
A number of properly controlled clinical investigations have proved that 2g of arginine given to sportspeople over a period of 5 weeks, results in a substantial (in comparison to the control group) strength increase and growth of lean muscular mass, as well as a reduction of fat and protein decomposition products.
In this reaction, arginine is transformed into gas hormone - nitric oxide (NO). Nitric oxide triggers the production of cyclic nucleotides. In muscular tissue, cyclic nucleotides take part in blood circulation and oxygen, amino acids, creatine and energy elements distribution, as well as in generating strength impulses and protein anabolism. Thus, they stimulate strength increase and muscle growth. On the other hand, in fat cells, cyclic nucleotides intensify the processes of lipolysis and thermo genesis, that is the dissociation of spare fat cells which liberates thermal energy.
In this reaction, arginine is transformed into polyamines - essential for protein synthesis. Not only do polyamines build up muscle tissue with proteins, but they also produce new muscle cells! So, thanks to arginine (indirectly), we can achieve constant and permanent muscle growth.
In this reaction, arginine is transformed into agmatine - an amine, which has similar characteristics to thermogenics, especially yohimbine. Agmatine increases the level of cyclic nucleotides, which, as already mentioned in point 1, influences muscle growth and fat reduction.
Arginine is also transformed into creatine, which was not mentioned in the points above, because of the widespread accessibility of creatine supplements.
Serving Size: 2 Capsules
Servings Per Container: 60
Amount Per Serving:
L-arginine HCl 3000 mg
L-arginine HCl, bulking agent - microcrystalline cellulose, anti-caking agent - magnesium stearate, capsule - gelatin
Dosing recommendations are 3 grams taken pre and/or post-workout. When taken pre-workout, arginine users report increased muscle pumps and stamina. Due to increased NO production and blood flow, when taken post-workout arginine will increase nutrient delivery and protein synthesis
