Arginine – An essential amino acid that converts to nitric oxide and increases bloodflow.
Glutamine – An essential amino acid is a building block of protein that improves protein metabolism. Glutamine plays the central role is transporting nitrogen in muscle and removing excess ammonia
Lysine – An essential amino acid. Lysine has antiviral effects by competing with arginine, which promotes HSV replication. Lysine is a necessary building block of protein. Some studies suggest that lysine may make bone building cells more active and may enhance the production of collagen.
Ornithine – An essential amino acid that has shown to stimulate the production of HGH. Has anti-fatigue effect by increasing the efficiency of energy consumption and promoting the excretion of ammonia. Ornithine intake is needed for anti-fatigue effects as it is not richly found in meats or fish.
L-Citrulline – Used as a sports performance and cardiovascular health supplement. Use results in reduced fatigue and improved endurance during strenuous exercise.
Acetyl L-Carnitine – An amino acid that is found in nearly all cells of the body. Plays a critical role in the production of energy from long-chain fatty acids, acting as a transport module for fatty acids. It increases the activity of certain nerve cells in the central nervous system. Carnitine has also been shown to reduce fatigue and improve recovery after strenuous activity.
Taurine – An effective antioxidant that aids in detoxification. Neutralizes free radicals and protects essential fatty acids and cell walls from oxidation. Taurine is able to reduce oxidative stress (tissue breakdown) after intense exercise, influencing muscle growth and increase performance.
Adenosine-5 Triphosphate (ATP) – ATP is the biochemical way to store and use energy in all cells and is critical for proper muscle contraction. Raising levels of ATP in muscles can increase performance during strenuous activity.
Dimethylglycine (DMG) – is a derivative of the amino acid glycine. Suggested to increases immune system function and activates neurological processes. Studies have shown during stressful events, ATP can enhance cellular oxygen usage, reduce lactic acid accumulation, and may enhance cell-mediated immunity.
