Arginine is an amino acid showing important biological activity. The presence of arginine, among others, leads to increased production of nitric oxide (NO), improves the blood supply to organs (Muscles, brain, heart or penis), helps with body detoxification and improves regeneration.  Unfortunately, the production of L-arginine in the human body becomes limited over time, due to the naturally progressive aging process.  Arginine can be found in the right diet. The main source of arginine is meat, dairy products as well as some of the vegetables. Sometimes you can support your diet with supplements. Due to the increased production of nitric oxide (NO)...

Whey is the by-product left when making cheese. Once water and Casein content is removed from this by-product, you are left with whey protein concentrate.

This process ensures that the protein stays intact and as pure as it can be. Whey protein concentrate is rich in both BCAA's and Glutamine. This makes it the ideal protein to help build muscle size, definition and aid recovery. It is absorbed quickly by the body. Whey Protein...

As a food source, casein supplies amino acids, carbohydrates, and two essential elements, calcium, and phosphorus. Many basic kinds of cheese begin by curdling the milk through the use of heat, acid or a combination of the two. This separates the solid and liquid portions of the milk, with the solids being used to actually create the cheese. The liquid byproduct is actually whey, the same substance that later becomes the protein powder. These solids, however, don’t have to become cheese....

"Creatine facilitates the building of glycogen stores" - Creatine monohydrate with added carbohydrates increases the rate of renewing glycogen stores after intensive training more efficiently than carbohydrates themselves, according to a study by Paul Greenhaff Volunteers were riding stationary bikes with an intensity of 70% of the maximum effort, after which High-carbohydrate diets also consumed up to 20g creatine liked placebo for 6 days Creatine accumulated greater muscle glycogen stores during the course of the experiment During intense training or prolonged effort the breakdown of glycogen in the muscles powers the body during aerobic or anaerobic exercise, and the breakdown...
