The purpose of this review is to summarize the role of arginine and its metabolite creatine in the context of a nutrition supplement for use in conjunction with an exercise stimulus in both healthy and patient populations.

American College of Sports Medicine roundtable. After reviewing recent literature, several conclusions and inferences may be made.

Essential amino acids and muscle protein recovery from resistance exercise. Free Radical Biology And Medicine48 2 European Journal of Sport Science12 4 Human muscle protein synthesis is modulated by extracellular but not intracellular amino acid availability: Dietary nitrate supplementation reduces the O2 cost of low-intensity exercise and enhances tolerance to high-intensity exercise in humans.

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. In turn, NO may mediate the effect of insulin in stimulating glucose transport in adipocyte tissue and skeletal muscle, by increasing levels of glucose transporter 4 GLUT4 at cells surface [ 20 ]. However, there are other factors that may minimize the effect of dietary L-Arginine, like the physiological and metabolic adaptation derived from chronic training and high L-Arginine—Lysine ratio [ 8 ].


In these patients, ingestion of 6 g of arginine per day for 3 d has been shown to improve exercise workload during a treadmill stress test 6 Dietary NO 3 – increases time to erfogenic failure at high ergogenlc exercise and reduces the time needed to achieve a certain distance in time trials [ 9 ]. 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 to NO [ 23 ].

It furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide.

Arginase activity seems to increase with exercise, which suggests additional ws will not be converted to NO Sureda et al. Three isoforms of NOS have been recognized: Roles of nitric oxide and superoxide in inflammation.

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

Thus, the major advantage of creatine may derive from improved training capacity. Nevertheless, some studies report acute cardiovascular modulation, particularly associated with high doses of intake 30 g maximumergogenci as hypotension with compensatory tachycardia, reduced peripheral arterial resistance and increase in cardiac output [ 10 ]. Guidelines Upcoming Special Issues.

The literature appears consistent in showing that days or up to 15 days of supplementation can increase indices of performance during high-intensity constant work-rate exercise and maximal incremental exercise. Since an increased perfusion of muscle would be expected to narrow the concentration gradient between plasma ertogenic the intracellular fluid, one might therefore expect an increase in the rate of muscle blood flow in the basal state to accelerate the efflux of intracellular EAAs into plasma.

Scientific opinion of the panel on contaminants in ad food chain. It is wise to minutely analyze the cost-benefit ratio of ergogenic aids, keeping in mind its potential illegality, always staying on guard against false promises.

Abstract The rationale for the use of nutritional supplements to enhance exercise capacity is based on the assumption that they will confer an ergogenic effect above and beyond that afforded by regular food ingestion alone. The results are shown in Table 1. Carbohydrate ingestion augments ergogejic muscle creatine accumulation during creatine supplementation in humans.
