Agmatine is derived from the amino acid L-Arginine. Agmatine acts as a neurotransmitter which may induce production of growth hormone, nitric oxide, creatine and protein; decrease blood glucose levels; and aid in the removal of nitrogen waste products from the body.
Agmatine is noted for its ability to extend Nitric Oxide (NO) levels in muscles during training. Extended NO levels results in more efficient delivery of oxygen and performance sustaining nutrients to working muscles. Thus increasing endurance and reducing recovery times.
Noted Agmatine benefits include promoting muscular pumps, nutrient transport, nutrient partitioning (greater number of calories utilized by muscle tissue and less stored in fat cells), increased blood flow, as well as playing a role supporting the production of luteinizing hormone (LH) and growth hormone (GH) secretion.
