(L-glutamine, L-arginine, L-carnitine; 25mg/100mg/200mg/ml)
L-Arginine:Essential Amino Acid Best known for its vascular system effect Subnormal arginine levels -> muscle weakness, fatigue Can become suboptimal with decreased intake or absorption *** Originally approved by the FDA in February 1973 as an IV stimulant of the pituitary to release HGH which can aid in the diagnosis of HGH related conditions: Treats high ammonia concentrations in patients with urea cycle disorders Presumed mechanism of action:Synthesized from citrulline (endogenously) Degradation of arginine produces nitric oxide, proline, glutamate, creatine, and agmatine Nitric oxide precursor, precursor of creatine and creatinine - muscle metabolism, stimulates release of insulin by the pancreas, supports immune function(known to stimulate killer cell activity for phagocytosis).

L-Glutamine: Amino Acid; Uses : often used for side effects of chemotherapy (diarrhea, pain/swelling inside the mouth, neuropathy, and muscle/joint pain); digestive conditions such as Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis, and ulcers; enhancing exercise performance (anabolic effect); sickle cell anemia; and alcohol withdrawal.May help muscle recover faster after intense workouts. Can help reduce recovery time for wounds and burns. May improve symptoms of IBS, leaky gut and ulcers. Glutamine is a precursor to glutamate which could help with brain issues such as Reye’s Syndrome, epilepsy, anxiety, depression and addiction.
L-Carnitine: Amino Acid; Uses : metabolism ( fat loss ) energy ( mitochondrial support ) anti - aging ( antioxidant ) neurotransmitter support ( mental clarity ) musculoskeletal ( exercise recovery ) cardiovascular health ( fatty acid oxidation ) immune health ( lymphocyte production ) -Important in membrane transport -Promotes energy production -Assists with fatty acid metabolism and weight loss -Myocardial infarction protection -Important in circulatory disorders -Vegans can be deficient -Elevated insulin can inhibit activity
