Our unique Amino Blend formula combines four amino acids which may stimulate the body’s natural production of growth hormone.
How do they work?
Arginine is an amino acid which stimulate pituitary release of growth hormone and prolactin and pancreatic release of glucagon and insulin. Arginine may aid in wound healing and help metabolize stored body fat and tone muscle tissue.
Glutamine is considered to be a ‘conditionally essential’ amino acid because under normal conditions dietary intake and synthesis from glutamate maintain adequate amounts. However, during times of catabolic stress, trauma, or infection, L-glutamine needs are greater due to decreased concentrations and increased tissue glutamine metabolism. Glutamine may also boost the level of growth hormone and increase muscle size if accompanied with resistance training.
Lysine is an essential amino acid, meaning it can not be synthesized in the body and must be ingested daily via the diet or via supplementation. Lysine is needed for growth, tissue repair, and the production of antibodies, hormones, and enzymes.
Ornithine may stimulate the pituitary gland to continue to produce growth hormone, which can rejuvenate your metabolism. Ornithine may stimulate insulin secretion and helps insulin work as an anabolic hormone. Taking extra ornithine could increase the levels of arginine in the body.
The benefits of injections over oral supplementation:
- Oral absorption is much more variable than injections. Injectable drugs can have a more rapid onset of action . Generally there is greater bioavailability with injections compare to oral administration.
- The combination of these components could encourage weight loss and lean muscle growth when combined with proper nutrition and resistance training.
