- Increases protein synthesis
- Stimulates the release of growth hormone
- Prevents lactic acid production in muscles
- Great fat burner
This amino acid is involved in various metabolic processes. It improves blood circulation, strengthens the immune system and has positive effects on libido in men. Arginine also improves fat burning by speeding up metabolism and reducing the growth of white fat (bad fat found mainly in the abdomen) and stimulates the production of brown adipose tissue, a good fat that produces heat, which is very effective in reducing body fat, increasing muscle mass and improving overall metabolism.Arginine is crucial for the production of nitric oxide, which is necessary for better blood circulation. British scientists from the University of Exeter (Exeter University) found that 6g of arginine reduces blood pressure by 7% during training, increases nitric oxide levels in the blood by 100% and increases endurance by 21%. Growth hormone and IGF-1 (a group of peptide hormones produced by the liver during growth hormone stimulation) are highly anabolic hormones that greatly increase muscle mass and strength.
Arginine stimulates the production of growth hormone, which also affects the production of IGF-1 hormone. This amino acid is also an excellent detoxifier - intensive training leads to the accumulation of ammonia, but arginine, which is an intermediate of the urea cycle, a metabolic cycle that reduces the concentration of ammonia, helps regulate the concentration of ammonia produced.
Usage: Consume one scoop (3g) with 100ml of water 30 minutes before training.
