Arginine Pyroglutamate is a substance in which the amino acid arginine is molecularly bonded to a pyroglutamate molecule. Pyroglutamate is a naturally occurring amino acid found in vegetables, fruit, dairy products and meat. There are no side effects as both are amino acids that are present in the foods commonly consumed by people on a daily basis. If taken in the recommended dosage of one and one-half to two grams of L-Arginine L-Pyroglutamate no side effects should result. However if you have kidney or liver disease you should consult your physician before taking any supplements.
Arginine improves Growth Hormone (GH) levels and increased Nitric Oxide (NO) production for enhanced blood flow and better delivery of oxygen and nutrients to working muscle.
Intense physical activity over prolonged periods can deprive the brain of the energy necessary for proper functioning. The benefit taking oral, L-Arginine L-Pyroglutamate is that it can cross the blood brain barrier and enter into the brain where it stimulates energetic processes in the brain and improves cognitive functions.
Arginine (or L-arginine) is a crystalline free-form amino acid involved in numerous areas of human biochemistry, including muscle metabolism, ammonia detoxification, hormone secretion and the immune system. Arginine is considered a semi-essential amino acid, because although it is normally synthesized in sufficient amounts by the body, supplementation is sometimes required. Arginine supports protein synthesis as it is involved in the transport and storage of nitrogen and is important for proper physical performance because it is used by the body to produce creatine.
Arginine is required for the synthesis of nitric oxide, a secondary messenger involved in blood flow. Nitric oxide is a compound that helps keep blood vessels dilated to promote healthy blood flow. Preliminary evidence suggests that arginine may be useful in the treatment of medical conditions that are improved by vasodilation, such as angina, atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease, erectile dysfunction, heart failure, intermittent claudication/peripheral vascular disease, and vascular headache. Arginine also stimulates protein synthesis and has been studied for wound healing, bodybuilding, enhancement of sperm production (spermatogenesis), and prevention of wasting in people with critical illness. Arginine is beneficial for overall cardiovascular maintenance and sexual function as well as other areas that depend largely on healthy circulatory status.
L-Arginine was first isolated in 1886. In 1932, L-arginine was found to be required for the generation of urea, which is necessary for the removal of toxic ammonia from the body. In 1939, L-arginine was also shown to be required for the synthesis of creatine. Creatine degrades to creatinine at a constant rate, and is cleared from the body by the kidney. Arginine is also a precursor of guanido-phosphate, phosphor-arginine and creatine, the high-energy compounds found in muscles. L-Arginine has been used extensively by bodybuilders to increase blood flow to muscle tissue and to enhance creatine storage in the body although recently Arginine Alpha-ketoglutarate has become more popular. Arginine is also an important factor in muscle metabolism and works to transport, store and excrete nitrogen.
Arginine Improves Growth Hormone (GH) levels:
Arginine stimulates the natural release of growth hormone and is a far safer and more cost effective alternative to growth hormone treatment such as HGH injections. Growth hormone is one of the most powerful hormones in the human body which promotes the growth of lean muscle tissue and the loss of fat. As you age, growth hormone levels drop, which is one reason you lose muscle and gain fat. In a controlled trial, when arginine and other amino acids were combined with weight training, a greater decrease in body fat was obtained after only five weeks than when the same exercise was combined with a placebo. Arginine is also needed to increase protein synthesis, which can in turn increase muscle growth. [1,2]. L-arginine taken on an empty stomach can cause a significant release of growth hormone in many people. A dosage of between 10 and 30 grams of L-Arginine, depending upon factors such as age and body weight, is needed to have any impact on GH release. Taking arginine in capsule form is not recommended because it would take upwards of 20 capsules per serving to have a substantial impact on GH, which is why powder is the recommended delivery method. Growth hormone releasers should not be used by children until five years after they have completed their long bone growth (unless under careful medical supervision). The effectiveness of arginine for growth hormone release is age-dependent. A person in their twenties can get a very high release of growth hormone whereas a person in their fifties would get a lower response.
