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

Scientific opinion of the panel on contaminants in the food chain. In individuals with stable angina pectoris, a key factor contributing to exercise intolerance is an inability to meet myocardial O 2 demands due to impaired coronary blood flow.

In what concerns chronic L-Arginine supplementation, it has been linked to a positive influence in hemodynamics and increment in VO2max, and exercise capacity, likely due to the rise in NO production, lessening both plasma lactate concentration and heart rate [ 28 ]. However, in healthy individuals, with normal NO production, L-Arginine supplementation seems to have little impact on aerobic exercise capacity, contrarily to individuals with reduced basal NO production [ 28 ].

Dietary NO 3 – increases time to task failure at high intensity exercise and reduces the time needed to achieve a certain distance in time trials zubjects 9 ]. NO supplements are increasingly being used by recreational athletes as an ergogenic aid, but little is currently known about the nature of these supplements. Hypertension, 56 2 L-arginine reduces exercise-induced increase in plasma lactate and ammonia.


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

Curiously, NO modulates the mechanical behaviour of skeletal muscle cells through a decrease in calpain-mediated cytoskeletal proteolysis [ 32 ]. We reviewed 20 studies that used Arg-based supplements and found mixed results. Archives Internationales de Physiologie, de Biochimie et de Biophysique99 1 The average person consumes about 1 g creatine each day from a regular diet.

Journal of Nutrition6 Sports Nutr Ther 1: Highly trained athletes have the lowest-percent increases post-ingestion and are not likely to gain any performance benefit from the additional NO 3. Despite such fears, NaNO 3 supplements, if taken safely with dietary nitrate, do not cause any significant protein damage over an acute dosage period.

Conversely, ingestion of all the NEAAs that were deleted in this experiment, including arginine, had no effect on muscle protein synthesis. In fact, a wide spectrum of cardioprotective maneuvers operates in an NO-dependent manner: One group received a commercial mixture of a blend of all 20 naturally-occurring amino acids. L-arginine is claimed to promote vasodilation by increasing nitric oxide NO production l-aeginine the active muscle during exercise, improving strength, power and muscular recovery through increased substrate utilization and metabolite removal, such as lactate and ammonia.

Whole beetroot consumption acutely improves running performance. First, many of the Arg supplements reviewed were mixed with other compounds, most of which had their ergogenjc ergogenic effects. Therefore, well-trained subjects may have higher resting circulating NO than sedentary ones [ 27 ]. Although supplementation with L-Arginine or L-Citrulline does not lack in undesirable effects, particularly gastrointestinal disturbances, such as nausea, vomiting or diarrhoea, there is great inter-individual variability in the tolerance to these amino acids [ 8 ].


Effects of hyper- and hypoosmolality on whole body protein and glucose kinetics in humans. Inorganic nitrate supplementation lowers blood pressure in humans role for nitrite-derived NO. To sum up, both L-Arginine and exercise increase NO production by skeletal muscle [ 28 ].

There seems to be a role for NO in hepatic gluconeogenesis subjevts, once high levels of NO are expected to increase the release of glucose from liver under conditions of inducible NO synthase iNOS induction [ 20 ].

It therefore follows that an increase in delivery of oxygen or energy substrates is not required to ergognic an increase in muscle protein synthesis. Although NO is, per se, unstable, rapidly exerting its benefits due to its high affinity to various hemecontaining proteins, determining several actions and regulating its biological short half-life, it has no role as a supplement, requiring the ingestion of other compounds that influence iad NO production systems [ 89 ].

Free Radical Biology And Medicine48 2 efgogenic, A fundamental tenet of human exercise physiology is a predictable oxygen cost for a given submaximal work rate [ 21 ].

Effects of oral l-arginine supplementation on exercise-induced QT dispersion and exercise tolerance in stable angina pectoris. Arginine supplementation potwntial healthy and patient populations. A higher VO2max means that more oxygen can be used during exercise. The possible ergogenic effect of creatine has led to a widespread use of supplementation in sport 52 — Dietary creatine supplementation and exercise performance:
