Arginine A.K.G contains a high dose of the active ingredient arginine, a primary semi-essential amino acid. It increases the growth hormone production, increases levels of NO, the pump effect, promotes muscle mass growth, improves wound healing, and supports protein metabolism. It is suitable to for all athletes.
Arginine A.K.G: arginine for increasing growth hormone production, performance and recovery improvement
Arginine A.K.G. from GymBeam is a nutritional supplement with a high content of arginine, which is an important component of protein and is therefore essential for the human body. It's also a part of biochemical processes related to anabolization and protein synthesis. Given the fact that arginine is a semi-essential amino acid and the body can not synthesize it, only under certain conditions, therefore, it is necessary to supply it to the body.
Arginine is a key ingredient in the case of increased exertion, stress and various health problems. It enzymatically changes the level of NO in blood vessels, what expands blood vessels, increasing blood circulation in the body. This is how the so-called pump effect occurs, but during the rest period it increases insulin secretion, and so intensifies the glycogen storage, which is an essential energy source in muscles. Additionally, it contributes to collagen formation, detoxifies ammonia, increases removal of lactic acid from tired muscles, to delay the onset of muscle fever, speeds up recovery time after posttraumatic conditions and many others. Another function of arginine is human growth hormone secretion stimulation, which results in improved protein synthesis and increased fat loss.
Arginine A.K.G and its benefits
- increases growth hormone production
- supports insulin and glucagon release, which results in muscle glycogen storage (energy source in muscles)
- increases NO levels = pump effect
- creatine production, which increases energy reserves (ATP) in muscle
- supports muscle growth at the expanse of fat
- supports sexual maturation and beneficial effect on the weakened erection disorders
- improves wound healing
- detoxifies and protects the liver from cirrhosis and steatosis
- protects the body against cancer
- supports the immune functions of the body
- protein metabolism
- release control, transport and storage of nitrogen in the body
- removes lactic acid from muscles and helps to prevent muscle fever
- ammonia detoxification
- it is involved in collagen production, part od connective tissue
- lowers high blood pressure.
What's the effect of arginine on human body?
Recent studies have proven a very big influence of nitric oxide on the cardiovascular system. Research by dr. Murad, who is a Nobel Prize Winner, argues that arginine is an important precursor in nitric oxide production and is naturally produced by the body in the inner layer of blood vessels - the endothelium. The endothelium plays an important role in maintaining the flexibility of blood vessels, where the absence of endothelial nitric oxide may cause malfunctions of the cardiovascular system.
However, the amino acid arginine helps in the release of blood vessels, which is favorable to the normalization of blood pressure, and other important functions in the body. It has a positive influence on bone, tissue and muscle growth, promotes fat metabolism, improves blood flow and secretion of the male growth hormone. Arginine also helps to create collagen, which is an important component of connective tissue and helps with proper pituitary gland functioning.
Who is Arginine A.K.G. made for?
It is intended for athletes of all sporting disciplines who want to increase their performance. Many athletes use it in order to strengthen the immune system.
