L-Glutamine:

Side Effects;

Should you worry about L-Glutamine side effects? In short No. studies have shown it to have no adverse side effects. Also Glutamine occurs naturally in your body, it has no health risks. However too much is never good with many supplements. Taking excessive of amounts of L-Glutamine has led to upset stomachs, so you should follow recommended dosages.

Benefits of L-Glutamine;

  1. Prevent muscles from being eaten up, in order to provide glutamine to other cells in your body.
  2. Helps maintain cell volume and hydration, making wounds and burns heal faster.
  3. replenishing glutamine during workouts.
  4. Helps you produce growth hormones.
  5. May increase immune system.
  6. It has the ability to repair a “leaky gut” by maintaining the structural integrity of the bowls.
  7. It can even cure ulcers.

L-Arginine Base:

 L-arginine is a chemical building block called “an amino acid.”  It is obtained from the diet and is necessary for the body to make proteins. L-arginine is found in red meat, poultry, fish, and dairy products. It can also be made in a laboratory and used as medicine.

Possibly effective for…

  • Improving recovery after surgery. Taking L-arginine with ribonucleic acid (RNA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) before surgery or afterwards seems to help reduce the recovery time, reduce the number of infections, and improve wound healing after surgery.
  • Congestive heart failure. Taking L-arginine along with usual treatment seems to help eliminate extra fluids that are a problem in congestive heart failure.  But taking L-arginine doesn’t always improve exercise tolerance or quality of life.  L-arginine should not be used instead of the usual treatments ordered by a healthcare provider.
  • Chest pain associated with coronary artery disease (angina pectoris). Taking L-arginine seems to decrease symptoms and improve exercise tolerance and quality of life in people with angina. But L-arginine doesn’t seem to improve the disease itself.
  • Bladder inflammation. Taking L-arginine seems to improve symptoms, but it may take up to three months of treatment to see improvement.
  • Wasting and weight loss in people with HIV/AIDS, when used with hydroxymethylbutyrate (HMB) and glutamine. This combination seems to increase body weight, particularly lean body mass, and improve the immune system.
  • Preventing loss of effect of nitroglycerin in people with angina pectoris.
  • Problems with erections of the penis (erectile dysfunction).
  • Improving kidney function in kidney transplant patients taking cyclosporine.
  • Preventing inflammation of the digestive tract in premature infants.
  • Cramping pain and weakness in the legs associated with blocked arteries (intermittent claudication).

Are there safety concerns?

L-arginine is POSSIBLY SAFE for most people when taken appropriately by mouth short-term. It can cause some side effects such as abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea, gout, blood abnormalities, allergies, airway inflammation, worsening of asthma, and low blood pressure.

Special precautions & warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: L-arginine is POSSIBLY SAFE when used appropriately short-term in pregnancy. Not enough is known about using L-arginine long-term in pregnancy or during breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.
Children: L-arginine is POSSIBLY SAFE when used by mouth in premature infants in appropriate doses. When used in high doses, L-arginine is POSSIBLY UNSAFE. Doses that are too high can cause serious side effects including death in children.
Allergies or asthma: L-arginine can cause an allergic response or make swelling in the airways worse. If you decide to take L-arginine, use it with caution.
Herpes: There is a concern that L-arginine might make herpes worse. There is some evidence that L-arginine is needed for the herpes virus to multiply.
Low blood pressure: L-arginine might lower blood pressure. This could be a problem if you already have low blood pressure.
Recent heart attack: There is a concern that L-arginine might increase the risk of death after a heart attack, especially in older people. If you have had a heart attack recently, don’t take L-arginine.
Surgery: L-arginine might affect blood pressure. There is a concern that it might interfere with blood pressure control during and after surgery. Stop taking L-arginine at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.

L-Leucine:

As a food additive, L-Leucine has E number E641 and is classified as a flavor enhancer. Leucine is the only dietary amino acid that has the capacity to stimulate muscle protein synthesis.  As a dietary supplement, leucine has been found to slow the degradation of muscle tissue by increasing the synthesis of muscle proteins.

L-Lysine HCL:

It is an essential amino acid, which means that the human body cannot synthesize it. As an essential amino acid, lysine is not synthesized in animals, hence it must be ingested as lysine or lysine-containing proteins. In plants and bacteria, it is synthesized from aspartic acid (aspartate). The nutritional requirement per day, in milligrams of lysine per kilogram of body weight, is: infants (3–4 months) 103, children (2 years) 64, older children (10–12 years) 60 to 44, adults 12. For a 70 kg adult, 12 milligrams of lysine per kilogram of body weight is 0.84 grams of lysine. Good sources of lysine are foods rich in protein such as soy, as well as meat (specifically red meat, lamb, pork, and poultry), cheese (particularly Parmesan), certain fish (such as cod and sardines), and eggs.

L-Alanine:

Alanine is a nonessential amino acid, meaning it can be manufactured by the human body, and does not need to be obtained directly through the diet. Alanine is found in a wide variety of foods, but is particularly concentrated in meats.

Good sources of alanine include

  • Animal sources: meat, seafood, caseinate, dairy products, eggs, fish, gelatin, lactalbumin
  • Vegetarian sources: beans, nuts, seeds, soy, whey, brewer’s yeast, brown rice, bran, corn, legumes, whole grains.

Link to hypertension

An international study led by Imperial College London found a correlation between high levels of alanine and higher blood pressure, energy intake, cholesterol levels, and body mass index.

 Link to Diabetes

Alterations in the alanine cycle that increase the levels of serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) is linked to the development of type II diabetes. With an elevated level of ALT the risk of developing type II diabetes increases.

Glycine:

an organic compound , is the smallest of the 20 amino acids commonly found in proteins. Other markets for USP grade glycine include its use an additive in pet food and animal feed. For humans, glycine is sold as a sweetener/taste enhancer. Food supplements and protein drinks contain glycine. Certain drug formulations include glycine to improve gastric absorption of the drug.

L-Ornithine Alpha Ketoglutarate:

is a non essential amino acid produced in the body. Has strong healing properties. Protects muscles and tissues from break down. Improves muscle mass, and is known to regulate liver function.

In general this proprietay blend seams safe. there are procautions however for those who have health issues already; they should have their Doctors look over the products and follow his/her advice. As should everyone.

Bless you all and get Fit

  1. Usually I do not learn article on blogs, but I wish to say that this write-up very forced me to check out and do it! Your writing style has been surprised me. Thank you, quite great post.

  2. Thanks for the points you have provided here. Something important I would like to express is that pc memory requirements generally rise along with other advances in the know-how. For instance, any time new generations of cpus are introduced to the market, there’s usually a related increase in the type calls for of both laptop memory as well as hard drive space. This is because software program operated by way of these processor chips will inevitably increase in power to take advantage of the new technologies.
