L-Arginine as a potential ergogenic aid in healthy subjects.

The effects of NO 3 – seem to be present both after acute and chronic administration, which may indicate that separate mechanisms are in play, since it is unlikely that alterations in protein expression would occur already h after acute administration [ 9 ].

December 16, ; Accepted Date: Even though L-Arginine supplementation has been frequently linked to metabolic diseases, only a few studies have been evaluating the effects of associating L-Arginine supplementation and physical workout on health outcomes [ 31 ]. New England Journal of Medicine26 These include a reduction in monocyte and platelet adhesion and a reduction in smooth muscle cell proliferation 10 — L-arginine reduces exercise-induced increase in plasma lactate and ammonia.

Human muscle protein synthesis is modulated by extracellular but not intracellular amino acid availability: Abnormal desmopressin-induced forearm vasodilatation in patients with heart failure: A large number of studies have been performed to test the effect of creatine on exercise performance.

It is unconditionally true that many athletes feel pressured to use supplements to maintain a competitive advantage over their supplement using-peers, so, physicians should give careful advice in order to prevent serious health risks [ 7 ]. Nitrate and nitrite are the main substrates to produce NO via the NOS-independent pathway, which seems to complement the endogenous NO production, especially during ischaemia and acidosis, in which oxygen availability is low and the NO synthases poorly operate [ 22 ].


However, it cannot be ruled out that creatine in combination z resistance exercise can change transcription or activate satellite cells.

Creatine supplementation during college football training pptential not increase the incidence of cramping or injury. In circumstances in which plasma EAA concentrations exceed their corresponding concentrations in muscle, one would expect increased delivery of EAAs via stimulated blood flow resulting in an increase l-argniine muscle uptake and an incorporation into muscle protein.

In fact, NO can combat a decreased NO production during hypoxic conditions, maintaining or even improving exercise performance [ 14 ].

These results suggest that an increase in muscle blood flow without a concomitant increase in the plasma concentrations of the EAAs would likely decrease, rather than increase, the rate of muscle protein synthesis. European Journal of Clinical Nutrition60 7 Therefore, some of the variables we cannot ignore are the dose of L-Arginine administered, the relationship between supplementation and exercise stimulus, as well as via of administration, which was almost generally the oral one.

Considering the 20 studies showing more consistent supplementation benefits, by realising that 9 of them consisted of cycling training and 2 based on 1-repetition maximum RM bench press test, it is possible to infer some heterogeneity inherent to the variables analysed.

Whereas it is clear that exogenous amino acids stimulate muscle protein synthesis at rest 16following resistance exercise 1718 and in association with a variety of clinical conditions including burn injury 19sarcopenia 2021and cancer cachexia 22evidence regarding the ergogenic effects of supplementation with individual amino acids such as arginine are equivocal.

This is avoided because NO is stored in the body as its more stable forms: About NOS-independent pathway, it is catalyzed by a wide range of proteins particularly, deoxyhemoglobin present in plasma and other tissues, leading to one-electron reduction of nitrite ergogdnic NO [ 23 ]. A nutritional supplement that enhances exercise capacity and is consumed before, during or after training, is known to have an ergogenic effect [ 24 ].


Ergogenci nitrate—Good or bad?.

Dietary nitrate supplementation reduces the O2 cost of low-intensity exercise and enhances tolerance to high-intensity exercise in humans. Vo 2 max and ventilatory threshold of trained cyclists are not affected by day L-arginine supplementation. Journal of Applied Physiology5 There is limited evidence that nitrate is beneficial for longer duration exercise performance, at least when administered acutely [ 23 ].

Following ingestion of amino acids, an increase in muscle blood flow would channel a higher proportion ws absorbed amino acids to subuects muscle.

Effect of arginine on exercise performance. Thus, the major advantage of creatine may derive from improved training capacity. Use of creatine and other supplements by members of civilian and military health clubs: Increase in sleep related GH and Prl secretion after chronic arginine aspartate administration in man.

Nitric Oxide/Arginine: Is Cardiovascular Modulation Effects in Athletes Supplementation?

Elevation of creatine in resting and exercised muscle of normal subjects by creatine supplementation. Acute administration of inorganic nitrate reduces VO2peak in endurance athletes.

Health implications of creatine: Creatine had no effect on mixed muscle protein fractional synthetic rate m. L-Arginine infusion increases glucose clearance during prolonged exercise in humans. Endogenous arginine is synthesized primarily in the kidney from l-ornithine and l-citrulline precursors 8.
