Arginine For Endurance Athletes

Arginine has been a favorite with strength athletes for the way it promotes nitric oxide stimulation and muscle pumps. Now a study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology suggests that this conditionally essential amino acid might also boost endurance for gym newbies. Scientists found that in untrained male subjects, 6 grams of arginine supplementation reduced the oxygen cost of moderate intensity exercise and increased endurance during intense exercise.

True Strength Moment: Looks like arginine has something to offer anyone who wants to make gains in the gym. Those just starting a routine can train harder longer, and those who are trying to reach the next level can benefit from increased blood flow which helps flush metabolic waste and increase levels of beneficial hormones. Add natural energizers, essential amino acids and beta-Alanine to the mix and you've got Essential Amino Energy.
