Growth Hormone, a polypeptide hormone secreted by the anterior pituitary gland that regulates tissue growth, cellular repair, energy levels, fat loss, and muscle growth, is the latest advance in bodybuilding supplementation! Growth Hormone (GH) is the master hormone, because the master gland, the anterior pituitary gland, releases it. While GH is not necessary or critical to one's survival, it seems to play an important evolutionary role in human development. During puberty, GH levels dictate a person's height and bone size. After puberty, GH continues to regulate the body's metabolism.
Ultimate Nutrition's Arginine Pyrogultamate/Lysine is a combination of stacked amino acids that brings about the secretion of Growth Hormone. Both lysine and arginine have been taken in combination to help boost the amounts of GH your body produces. Arginine pyroglutamate is the only form of arginine that, in combination with lysine, effectively increases GH levels orally. By having hiked up amounts of GH in your body will help burn fat, increase strength, enhance libido, boost immunity and support tendons and ligaments.
Intense physical activity over prolong periods of time can depleat the brain of energy necessary to function. By taking Arginine pyroglutamate it can easily breach the blood-brain barrier to stimulate energetic processes in the brain and improve cognitive functions. As such, Arginine Pyroglutamtae/Lysine is a great mixture of amino acids that ensures proper nutrition for both the body and the mind.
Human Growth Hormone is responsible for the regulation of insulin, protein synthesis, transportation of amino acids across cell membranes and fat metabolism. Clearly, these are processes that are of relevance to serious bodybuilders. With increased levels of Human Growth Hormone athletes have reported higher energy levels, enhanced libido and greater cardiac output. In addition, superior immune function, increased muslce mass and fat loss. Add in other potential benefits like improved sleep, shorter recovery times, quicker regeneration of damaged muscles and you can begin to understand why some experts are excited by the possibilities offered to bodybuilders.
Are There Any Side Effects to Arginine Pyroglutamate and Lysine?
No! These are amino acids that are found in everday meals and diets. Of course, any un-favorable effects depend upon the amount of amino acids taken. If Arginine Pyroglutamate and Lysine is taken in the recommended dosage of 1.5 - 2.0 grams of arginine pyroglutamate and 750 to 1000 milligram of lysine, no side effects should result.
When is the Best Time to Take Arginine Pyroglutamate/Lysine?
The optimal time to take Arginine Pyroglutamate/Lysine is before bed time on a relativly empty stomach. Taking Arginine Pyroglutamate/Lysine at bed time makes it work with the body's natural rhythms for increased growth hormone production, which happens roughly 90 minutes after the onset of sleep.
