What is Agmatine Sulfate?
Agmatine is the end product of the decarboxylation of the popular amino acid arginine.
This means it is far more concentrated and effective with a much smaller amount required for optimal results.
It can be found in very small amounts in poultry & meats and is also produced in the intestine.
For required amounts to improve performance you would be best suited to getting the free form supplement Agmatine Sulfate which is now quite popular in both pre and intra-workout supplements.
What Does it Do?
Agmatine works to increase the amount of nitric oxide (N.O.) in the body. It does this by inhibiting the enzyme which breaks down nitric oxide.
This means you get increased vasodilation (widening of the blood vessels) for increased blood flow,better muscles pumps and also improved lactate clearing from the working muscles.
Agmatine serves a dual purpose of both bringing in more blood/nutrients & clearing out inhibitors of performance such as lactic acid.
