Amino Acids are the building blocks of protein and perform many specialized functions.

L-Arginine is an essential amino acid that has been utilized by athletes for the past thirty years to achieve optimum performance.  (There 4 free weight training videos (streamed by Google) on this page .. click & enjoy)

L-Arginine is an amino acid and Nitric Oxide (NOS) is a "messenger gas" that is produced from Arginine.

  •  I recently added Arginine Ethel Ester DiHCl to my pre workout stack along with AKG ( I love Arginine .. it works) + Ornithine & Glutamine .. Arginine Ethel ester is some nasty tasting stuff with definite vascular impact ..  cherry kool aide covers the taste OK.

Arginine & it's partner in growth Nitric Oxide amplify the beneficial anabolic muscle building effects of both exercise and nutritional supplements.

  • Nitric Oxide was discovered in the late 1990s by researchers seeking the physical mechanism by which L-Arginine was responsible for promoting blood vessel relaxation and the regulation of vascular tone.

Arginine increases muscle protein synthesis. .. Muscle fiber growth occurred at an accelerate rate .. Nitric Oxide is a major stimulator of muscle growth.

  • Improved nutrient transport via vasodilation's improved blood flow (the pump) feed / energize your muscles during your workout + allow maximum system benefit during your post workout recovery period.

    • Arginine's effects in this area occur after enzymes transform it into nitric oxide, or NO, a messenger gas that travels easily from cell to cell.

    • Nitric Oxide is a compound that relaxes blood vessels, it helps keep arteries flexible and boosts blood flow.

  • The hemodilation process begins in the endothelial layer of the blood vessel where a NO -Calmodulin (a calcium based protein) chemical reaction occurs & the result is the production of Endothelial Relaxing Factor.
  • A chemical messenger (nuero transmitter) is then passed on to the the smooth muscles of the blood vessel resulting in vasodilatation or increased diameter of the blood vessel.
  • It is the hemodilation that results in L-Arginine being a prime ingredient in most "natural Viagra products".

L-Arginine supplementation results in noticeable positive results from an inexpensive & documented safe amino acid.

L-Arginine is a recognized hGH Secretagogue.

2005 Syracuse University: A Research Project on men between 18 & 35 has published a report showing that that 6 grams to 9 grams of Arginine acts as a HGH Secretagogue.  A 9 gram L-Arginine serving increased serum HGH by over 60%,  from 4mcg/liter to 6.5 mcg/liter.

  • Research studies document that L-Arginine & Nitric Oxide have a positive effect on increasing muscle mass.

  • When test animals were given extra Arginine the animal's sarcomeres, = muscle fibers, increased in diameter.

  • Perhaps more significantly, when NO is blocked reduced gains in muscle mass and fewer muscle sarcomeres were observed.

  • The nitric oxide pathway is also influenced by NOS ( nitric oxide synthase) in addition to co-factors homocysteine, ADMA ( asynmetric dimethylargine) and SOA (super oxide anion).
  • The calcium based protein calmodulin is also involved in this complex process

There are separate positive physiologic responses to aerobic & anaerobic exercise.

  • Green Dash =Insulin
  • Yellow Line = Blood glucose
  • Red Line = HGH
  • Orange Line = Average Glucose

There are positive hormonal responses 

with both aerobic and anaerobic exercise.  

The blood gas Nitric Oxide facilitates vascular dilation, actual increased diameter of the blood vessels!

 

  • Many studies, but not all, have found beneficial effects in people with heart and/or vascular disease who take Arginine. 

  • L- Arginine's greatest health potential may be it's effects on cardiovascular disease

Actual certificate of analysis from a 50 kilo drum of Pharmaceutical L- Arginine

 

2005 Syracuse University: Dr. Jim Stoppani, Flex Magazine: A Research Project on men between 18 & 35 has published a report showing that that 6 grams to 9 grams of Arginine acts as a HGH Secretagogue.  A 9 gram L-Arginine serving increased serum HGH by over 60%,  from 4mcg/liter to 6.5 mcg/liter.

As a secretagogue Arginine appears to work by blocking the hormone, Somatostatin, which acts as a brake within the pituitary gland lowering the production and release of GH.

  • An accepted, and widely used, medical test for the function of the pituitary gland is the administration of L-Arginine via IV RadioReceptor Assay (RRA, somatomedin induction) & measurement of serum Insulin Growth Factor 1 response levels.

  • IGF-1 is the metabolite of HGH used in blood work to determine Anterior Pituitary function. ( RRA, somatomedin induction )

Bottom line is that a specific amino acid (L-Arginine) increases HGH levels in the blood!

Oral administration of the same amino acids is less precise, and ultimately less effective, than the IV administration but effective non the less.

Arginine Alpha Ketogluterate, AAKG, is the 21st century form of L-Arginine.

Arginine is relatively inexpensive.

Huge Bang for the buck.
