For a new training sensation.
Performing to your absolute best in every training session is almost impossible. Sufficient exertion and stimulation is, however, fundamental for successful muscle building. L-arginine supports the transport of oxygen in the blood, ensuring a completely new sensation of strength and endurance. Even during intense workouts.
- Ideal as a booster for training
- More strength and endurance
- Optimised nutrient supply

No, capsules don’t have to be made of processed porcine and bovine offal. In keeping with our purely plant-based raw materials, we use vegan capsule shells. The origin? Cellulose fibres from natural, renewable raw materials.
We do not use human hair or duck feathers in our L-Arginine. Our arginine base is produced 100% from fermented corn. This allows us to create a training aid of natural origin. For the most demanding power athletes and endurance athletes.

General information about L-arginine
Along with BCAA and glutamine, L-arginine is one of the best known and most popular amino acid supplements among athletes.
L-arginine belongs to the semi-essential amino acids, i.e. it can be produced by the body itself, but often not in sufficient quantity for regular exercise.
Why is L-arginine so important for our body? Arginine is involved in a large number of processes in the body, including the formation of nitric oxide, one of the smallest messenger substances in the body. Nitrogen is also known to be the main substance responsible for the protection and regulation of blood vessels. Particularly interesting here is the fact that nitric oxide promotes vasodilation and improves nutrient transport to the muscles.
Arginine therefore helps supply the muscle cells.
Due to the characteristics described above, L-arginine is primarily used before exercise for a positive impact on strength and endurance levels.
Differences in quality arise in the pharmaceutical form of arginine. Inferior arginine HCL (hydrochloride) supplements are often extracted from human hair or duck feathers. By contrast, high-quality L-arginine base has a much larger content of real arginine, better bioavailability and is fermented from plant sources like corn or sugar cane molasses.

L-arginine for strength and endurance
L-arginine is primarily used to support training performance in terms of strength and endurance levels. It is also suitable for muscle building as a "booster" for your workout.
An additional intake of L-arginine in conjunction with an exercise regime supports nutrient transport - this results in a better supply to the muscles and increased performance in strength and endurance training.
The effects of L-arginine
In the world of strength and weight training, "pumping" is often mentioned in conjunction with arginine. How does L-arginine force/promote muscle pumping in weight training? A noticeably improved supply of carbohydrates and proteins, along with improved blood circulation, makes you feel like you have more power available to you.
Meaning you can lift heavier weights or complete more reps. This leaves the muscles well supplied with all the nutrients they need and means they can work effectively.
Who should use L-arginine?
Arginine is ideal for weight lifters who want to improve the nutrient supply to the muscles and support exercise performance. This can often lead to you being able to achieve more reps, lift heavier weights and manage with shorter breaks, which makes the workout more successful in terms of a progressive increase in strength.
A study by an English university has shown that with additional arginine, endurance athletes could train for up to 20% longer and overall endurance improved by 1 - 2%. Blood pressure was also improved.
The correct intake of L-arginine
Weight lifters should take L-arginine on an empty stomach about 30-60 minutes before exercising, in order to benefit from the full effect. L-arginine can also be taken on non-training days to support your training performance, although this is not strictly necessary.
Arginine available in powder or capsule form, Both forms are well tolerated by the body and are rapidly absorbed. The biggest difference is in the taste.
L-arginine has a naturally unpleasant taste, but the capsules are tasteless and easier to take in this sense.
Even when combined with juice the powder retains its fishy, salty, bitter taste, making it a lot less popular than capsules. L-arginine capsules have the additional advantage that they are easy to dose and easy to carry.
Possible side effects of L-arginine
Taking more than 15 grams a day may cause temporary digestive problems, stomach cramps or nausea.
If you follow the recommended dosage you need not worry about side effects.
