Encourage Fat Loss*
Promote Massive Pumps*
Optimize Insulin Response*
Agmatine's benefits extend beyond athletes to also include avid life extensionists. Agmatine is a molecule that is a derivative of amino acid L-arginine. It is stored in neurons and it acts as a neurotransmitter and neuromodulator. Agmatine is naturally produced in the body and supplementing it has been shown to have many health and athletic performance benefits.
• Agmatine acts as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory agent*
• Improved body composition via improved insulin response*
• Positive effects on LH and GH*
• Nitric oxide modulation*
• Improved recovery*
• Increased performance*
• Increased endurance*
• Decreased body fat*
• Antioxidant role*
What does Agmatine Do?
Nitric Oxide Modulation
L-arginine has been popularly used in nitric oxide boosting supplement to
help enhance muscular pumps. Just like L-arginine agmatine has a powerful
effect on regulation of nitric oxide through inhibition of nitric oxide
Nutrient partitioning agent
Agmatine as a nutrition partitioning agent can help dispose glucose from the
blood into the muscle cells promoting muscle cells fullness, glycogen
replenishment and improvement in muscle recovery.
Who can benefit from Agmatine?
Athletes and avid life extensionists can and should supplement with Agmatine for its many health benefits.
When should I take it and how much?
Take 2 capsules first thing in the morning with a meal or take 1 capsule in the morning with a meal, and then another 1 capsule 30 to 45 minutes prior to training.
