What is it?
Dubbed super arginine, agmatine sulfate is the latest nitric oxide producing supplement used by athletes. However, agmatine goes far beyond that with clinical studies touting its ability to do much more than create a pump.
Benefits of Agmatine sulfate include
- Increases Nitric Oxide Syntheses*
- Inhibits NO Synthase (the enzyme responsible for NO breakdown)*
- Stimulation of L.H. (Luteinizing Hormone) & G.H. (Growth Hormone) Levels*
- Promotes a Healthy & Positive Mood (Anti-Anxiety & Antidepressant Properties)*
- Promotes Nutrient Delivery to Muscle Cells*
- Supports Overall Anabolic Environment*
- Enhances Insulin Response*
- Provides Neuroprotective Support*
- Enhances Cardiovascular Health*
- Antioxidant Role*
There a quite a few clinical studies about agmatine sulfate available for study. Read below some of the interpretations of the studies and their outcomes.
In regards to athletes:
Agmatine potentially stimulates the pituitary gland to increase the production of hormones such as Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Growth Hormone (GH). With the increase of these hormones come both and improvement in body composition(muscle vs. fat) and overall health. Agmatine sulfate also increases nitric oxide (NO) via two biological pathways. First, agmatine stimulates the natural release of nitric oxide from your own body. Then it inhibits nitric oxide synthase which is responsible for decreasing the level of NO in the body. This is the mechanism by which the "pump" in a muscle is extended versus regular arginine products.
In regards to the nootropic effect (mood elevation):
Agmatine has been shown to block the NMDA receptors in the brain, which may be responsible for its anxiolytic effects. Many people use agmatine sulfate to improve their mood and reduce anxiety, as well as induce a clearer mental state.
In regards to body composition and weight loss:
Agmatine sulfate supplementation may help improve insulin response, and thereby, can lead to positive benefits for those seeking to improve body composition. Among the bodybuiding community, improved insulin response is though to be key to a leaner, harder and more muscular body.
Instructions for Use
As a dietary supplement, take 1 to 2 capsules by mouth upon waking before breakfast and 1 to 2 capsules 30 minutes prior to physical activity. On non-training days, just use the morning dose.*
