- May help to boost growth hormone
- Increases nitric oxide production
Di-Arginine Malate is a double bonded amino acid (arginine) molecularly bound to malic acid that can help to boost growth hormone and create an anabolic environment in the body for muscle growth
Arginine is a complex amino acid that is essential for numerous physiological functions in the human body. It can support training goals such as improving power, strength and increasing lean body mass.
The intake of arginine has been shown to boost growth hormone (GH) after intense resistance training. Growth hormone is one of the primary hormones that influence adaptation to training so it is highly important to maximise GH levels after exercise. Growth hormone is required to create an anabolic environment in the body after exercise which facilitates muscle fibre growth allowing them to become stronger.
Nitric Oxide production is another important function that arginine intake can offer. The production of nitric oxide sends a signal to the inner smooth-muscle cells of artery walls to dilate (relax), resulting in increased blood flow. Enhanced blood flow, particularly during exercise improves the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the muscle cells which helps to boost exercise performance.
Under conditions of stress during intense exercise, the metabolic demand for arginine may exceed the body’s ability to produce it. Hence, it is considered a conditional amino acid. In many cases, athletes and people who have large training demands can benefit from arginine supplementation.
