Primo Performance is proud to introduce you the only non-animal plant based pharmaceutical grade fermented L-Arginine HCl (raw material) partially manufactured in the United States.
Arginine is a non-essential amino acid but considered a semi-essential amino acid because the body produces Arginine naturally but sometimes the body needs more than is available.
L-Arginine HCl is a synthetically manufactured form of arginine that combines the amino acid with a hydrogen chloride molecule. Hydrogen chloride is combined with arginine to make the arginine more palatable and to enhance its absorption by the digestive system.
L-Arginine provides the nitrogen used to make Nitric Oxide (NO), once known as endothelial-derived relaxing factor. NO acts on the smooth muscle of the small blood vessels (e.g., in the capillary beds of skeletal muscle) to cause vasodilation and increase blood flow to tissue. Increasing the flow of blood and oxygen to the muscles during bouts of intense exercise may enhance performance allowing muscle to produce more strength and delaying the onset of exercise-induced fatigue.
NO also promotes lipolysis (fat breakdown), suggesting that arginine may help with the utilization of body fat stores during exercise or when dieting for fat loss. On the other hand, NO is also has pro-oxidant (free radical) effects suggesting caution with chronic use. In years past, arginine has been touted as a growth hormone (GH) releaser.
