L-Arginine is a precursor of nitric oxide (NO) in the human body. In the 1990s, scientists discovered that NO is an essential compound that helps blood circulation. By lowering blood pressure and increasing blood flow to the muscles, L-arginine allows athletes to work out longer by increasing muscle endurance and lowering the heart rate. L-arginine is also believed to play a role in the synthesis of the body's growth hormone. This allows body builders to carry more muscle than normal.
Necessary for the production of protein, L-arginine also helps rid the body of ammonia (a waste product) and stimulates the release of insulin. In addition, L-arginine is used to make nitric oxide (a compound that relaxes the blood vessels). Studies suggest that L-arginine benefits certain health conditions such as: colds, congestive heart failure, dementia, erectile dysfunction, high blood pressure, intermittent claudication, interstitial cystitis, male infertility, migraines, preeclampsia;
Arginine alpha-ketoglutarate (AAKG)
AAKG is a salt of the amino acid arginine and alpha-ketoglutaric acid. It is marketed as a body building supplement. The components are intermediates in the metabolism of nitric oxides.
Alpha-ketoglutarate is a chemical found in the body. It is used for curing kidney disease; intestinal and stomach disorders, including bacterial infections; liver problems; cataracts; and recurring yeast infections.
People take alpha-ketoglutarate to improve peak athletic performance and is an important addition to proper diet and training for the athlete who wants peak performance. This is based on studies that show extra ammonia in the body can combine with alpha-ketoglutarate to reduce problems associated with too much ammonia (ammonia toxicity).
Arginine Ketoisocaproate (AKIC)
Arginine-ketoisocaproate can boost Nitric Oxide (NO) levels, NO, a key molecule manufactured by the body, causes vasodilation (an expansion of the internal diameter of blood vessels), which in turn leads to increased blood flow, oxygen transport, delivery of nutrients to skeletal muscle, and a reduction in blood pressure. Increased strength and markedly improved stamina can also be expected. In fact, the results may be classified into three categories:
- 1) the promotion of an extended muscle pump
- 2) signaling muscle growth and speeding recovery
- 3) increasing strength and stamina
Used in conjunction with your exercise program, Xtreme Gain may support myodilation, the expansion of muscle tissue.
Ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate (OKG)
is an amino acid complex naturally produced in the body when the amino acids ornithine and glutamine combine. Studies show supplemental OKG has muscle-building effects as well as potential to stave off muscle wasting. It offers an anabolic (muscle-building) and anti-catabolic (anti-muscle-wasting) effect by boosting IGF-1 (insulin growth factor) and GH (growth hormone) levels.
Scientists state that OKG contributes to the synthesis of key metabolites, including glutamine, which is also integrally involved in supporting healthy immune functioning.
Clinical studies have shown OKG supplementation to be effective in increasing protein synthesis, lowering protein catabolism, improving insulin and somatropin secretion and increasing absorption of amino acids and glucose to the muscles. It also supports healthy skin and tissue.
is a chemical found in the body. It is a glutamine precursor that efficiently bypasses the digestive system for superior absorption and cell volumization. It is commonly used to help athletes optimise glutamine stores.
Glutamine is essential for several bodily functions. It assists with blood sugar control and plays a major role in synthesizing muscle protein and cell volumizing. It is a primary source of energy for the immune system.
