PUMP+ is a food supplement for integrating the ratios of arginine, ornithine and citrulline, even for athletes who practice sport that requires great muscular strength, for example bodybuilding. Arginine, Ornithine and Citrulline are amino acids that are physiologically produced by the organism inside the Urea cycle, the metabolic road that eliminates excess ammonium deriving from catabolism of the amino acids.
Arginine is a non-essential amino acid, and can be synthesized starting from proline or glutamic acid. It is, however, fundamentally important for physical exercise, enough so to be considered as being equal to essential amino acids. Arginine, in fact, is among the precursors of creatine synthesis, extremely well-known for its positive action on performance and the increase it creates in the muscular mass.
Nitric oxide, a powerful vasodilator, is synthesized from arginine by nitric oxide synthase. It therefore favors the so-called “pump” effect, which is an end in itself, but guarantees a greater flow of nutrients and oxygen to the muscles, making them more efficient. It also seems to have a positive influence on the secretion of the growth hormone because of the Nitric Oxide it contains.
Arginine alpha-ketoglutarate (AAKG) strengthens these effects thanks to greater bioavailability, in particular of the muscle tissue, and in addition ketoglutarate is also a source of arginine or ornithine, creating a perfect synergy effect.
Taking arginine and ornithine together is one of the latest innovations in the food supplement for sportspeople field; on the basis of what is indicated in the labels of products sold over the counter, associating arginine and ornithine seems to bring about indirect health characteristics tied to the stimulation (or better, optimization of the physiological production) of the GH.
Arginine and Ornithine, effects when taken together:
- Improved muscle recovery
- Improved muscular tropism
- Reduced adipose tropism
- Improvement in immune effectiveness and efficiency
- Anti-ageing action (cellular renewal of all tissues)
