Are you preparing for a sports ‘Challenge’ this year? If so then a high-quality L’arginine and magnesium supplement can really make a difference to your performance and recovery.

L’arginine is an amino acid that is converted in the body to Nitric Oxide. When this amino acid is received in the right dosage and from a proven bio available source, you can literally turbot charge your workout and speed up your recovery time! This is because Nitric Oxide primarily improves the body’s circulation, and so speeds up and ensures the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to every cell of the body.

Improving the delivery of oxygen also means that it is possible to work at a higher aerobic capacity and so less lactic acid is produced. At the same time improving the circulation also ensures that any lactic acid that is made in the muscles is removed more efficiently. Since lactic acid in tissue leads to muscle fatigue and decreases muscle performance, this is essential for maintaining peak performance and reducing recovery times. Finally, improving circulation also ensures the speedy delivery of the nutrients needed to reload the muscle tissue and facilitate any muscle repair.

One of those key nutrients that the body needs for enhanced sports performance and repair is magnesium. Magnesium plays a vital role in both energy production and recovery. A 2012 study of elite runners found that it was magnesium that was the most depleted electrolyte in the runners and this resulted in significant inflammation. Magnesium fights inflammation, raises antioxidant levels and helps replenish energy stores in the muscle. It also helps your body metabolise carbs, while influencing the activity of hormones that control blood glucose levels. On top of all of that magnesium also calms the central nervous system, lowers heart rate and so enables restful sleep. We all know how important sleep is to the healing process.

If you would like to find out about either an L’arginine or magnesium supplement that have clinical trials proving their potency, purity and efficacy, then please do get in contact with me.
