An essential amino acid for all athletes
Evolution L-arginine is a 100 % pure l-arginine powder that has been manufactured by the newest technology.
L-arginiini is a very powerful amino acid, that has a number of different tasks.
Arginine has been shown to affect the production of nitric oxide (1, 2). Nitric oxide, for its part, has anabolic effects through the work of the IGF-1 hormone (3) and satellite cells (4). Through nitric oxide, arginine also has an impact on performance. For example, circulation in limbs, oxygen intake and glucose intake in muscles are enhanced (5-13). Studies have shown that arginine increases both strength and muscle mass (14, 15, 16). Arginine also promotes recovery from traumatic muscle training (17).
L-arginine is safe to use and it is suitable of all athletes.
