Designed for active people
XBrain® Arginine is designed especially for active people and athletes. Each tablet contains 1.0 mg of L-arginine HCL a form of arginine that has the highest bioavailability to ensure rapid absorption of this very important amino acid.
L-arginine is one of the building blocks of proteins, which are necessary for new muscle fibre creation and muscle growth. But arginine has many other functions in the body beyond its role in protein synthesis. It is involved in the urea cycle, helping the body get rid of excess ammonia and regulate the nitrogen balance. Very importantly for athletes it improves blood flow, enhancing muscle performance and improving recovery. It also improves healing and boosts the immune system.
There are several different forms of arginine supplements but research has shown that arginine HCL is the most rapidly absorbed.
More Muscle Endurance
Arginine will enhance your endurance during exercise, allowing you to work out harder and for longer. This is because arginine improves blood flow to muscles, so you get better oxygen and nutrient delivery when you are working out. Arginine is a precursor for nitric oxide, and is absolutely required for its production. Nitric oxide is a very important signalling molecule, which causes blood vessels to relax and dilate. How much work your muscles can do is limited by the rate at which they can burn glucose. If your muscles get more oxygen and glucose, through the improved blood flow, you can train harder, burn more calories, and increase muscle gain.
The most important for muscle gain is the recovery period right after your workout. This is when damage to muscle fibres is repaired and new fibres are laid down. At this time there is also a peak of growth hormone (GH) levels, especially after an endurance workout with weights. Guess what? Arginine has been shown to stimulate GH secretion, so it will enhance the growth hormone peak after your workout.
GH of course is one of the major anabolic hormones in the body. It stimulates protein synthesis and muscle growth. The peak of GH after a workout is the main reason that training results in more lean mass.
The only thing to remember is that insulin interferes with growth hormone production, so to get the full benefit from your Arginine Pure supplement you should avoid carbohydrates right after your workout. Lots of people take them during recovery to replace the glycogen lost. However carbohydrates interfere with and reduce growth hormone release. It is definitely better to wait with them until the brief GH peak period is over, to get the full benefit in terms of muscle gain.
Then there is the fact that arginine improves blood flow to muscle because it is a precursor of nitric oxide. Better blood flow of course means more nutrients and oxygen to repair the damage to muscle fibres and lay down new ones. Arginine really is one of the most important supplements you can take for a faster and more productive recovery after exercise.
Arginine also boosts the immune system helping to prevent opportunistic infections. Although the general assumption is that exercise is good for you, many bodybuilders and performance athletes put huge strains on their body, which often suppresses the immune system. This results in a lot of infections, especially upper respiratory tract infections, which interferes with training and sets back your progress. People who aim to achieve maximum performance often find that they can over train and burn out, their immune system is compromised, they frequently fall ill and end up not being able to train. It is quite easy to set out to maximise performance, but in fact end up sabotaging one’s efforts. Because of these factors looking after your immune system, ensuring it is working at optimum capacity is very important if you are training hard. Arginine Pure supplement can be an important factor in achieving that.
As you can see Xbrain’s Arginine, a superior quality L-arginine hydrochloride supplement has numerous benefits for athletes and active people. Arginine, along with other amino acids is a building block of proteins, sufficient amounts are necessary for maximum rates of protein synthesis, which is necessary for muscle gain. Arginine is also an essential precursor of nitric oxide, a potent vasodilator. Taking an arginine supplement will enhance performance and endurance during workouts, and muscle gain afterwards by relaxing blood vessels and enhancing blood flow, and therefore oxygen and nutrient transport to muscle cells. Arginine also stimulates the release of growth hormone, an important anabolic signalling molecule directly responsible with inducing muscle gain after exercise. Finally arginine acts to boost the immune system protecting your from opportunistic infections that can interfere with your training schedule.
