In today’s world of health and fitness fanaticism many people look for that special supplement to provide the ‘x’ factor to improve their workouts. As I have found out recently, taking a pre workout supplemet which is loaded with stimulants does exactly that. But an over stretched workout may result in unforeseen consequences. The body becomes depleted attacking the immune system and unless the athlete has a carefully prepared meal plan to rely on repleminishing those nutrients needed, an overstretched workout due to stimulation could be catastrophic. A weekened immune system can lead to the onset of infection, the body being unable to fight it off.
Boosting the Immune System
It is therefore essential to protect the immune system with a good workout supplement. Without the stimulents that are in most pre workout supplements, L-arginine Plus can act to do this very thing. L-arginine strengthens the immune system by fighting free radicals and improving nutrient delivery to help fight infections more effectively.
Muscle Growth & Development
The reason many workout supplements contain l-arginine is because it acts as a protein synthesis which improves muscle growth. As your muscles increase in size, l-arginine signals the release of growth hormone and improves your body’s ability to metabolize fat. As fat is depleted, l-arginine continues to promote increased muscle development.
Increase in Excercise Endurance
L-arginine also helps increase endurance during your workouts. As more nitric oxide is released, the blood vessels expand and your blood flow improves. By increasing blood flow, your body is able to deliver more oxygen and nutrients to the muscles. This process helps reduce muscle damage, improves your recovery and boosts your overall workouts so you can exercise harder for an extended amount of time.
The benefits of l-arginine within a sporting arena can therefore be seen. One piece of advice before doing a gym workout would be to take l-arginine an hour before you go allowing the benefits to take effect and also consider using a protein supplement for maximum gain.
