ARGININE - Semi-essential Amino Acid
Is considered a semi-essential amino acid, produced normally in the body, but sometimes your body needs more than what is available. Food sources such as peanuts and almonds are natural sources, but for those looking to enhance athletic performance or increase lean muscle mass, it is difficult to derive the amount required by the body for optimal results from food sources.
Precursor for synthesis of Nitric Oxide (NO)
Stimulates the release of growth hormone (GH)
Precursor to the production of creatine
Recent university level research confirms ARGININE’s ability to act as a natural precursor to Creatine synthesis in the body.
It has also been shown to increase natural levels of Growth Hormone and increase the body’s ability to consume and utilize oxygen, primarily due to its ability to increase levels of Nitric Oxide (increases vasodilation).
