From the moment we are born the amino-acid L-Arginine9 plays an important role in the growth of our skeleton and the reproduction of our cells.
L-Arginine is a semi-essential amino acid. This means that our body produces L-Arginine itself. It produces enough until we are fully grown.
After that, the body produces less and less of this amino acid, L-Arginine, and the ageing process begins, and the consumption of L-Arginine at this time, but especially in old age, has a measurable effect on anti-aging and overall body function.6
As we grow older, the body produces and absorbs less and less L-Arginine.In order for the body to absorb L-Arginine, it must be slowly released into the body.
From the time you are born a gland in your brain produces growth hormone to help you stay lean, build strong muscles and feel energetic.
Unfortunately, around the age of 23 your body starts to produce less growth hormone and by the time you are in your 40s and 50s it is much harder to stay energetic, lean and build muscle.
Taking a combination of the two amino acids L-Arginine Pidolate and L-Lysine in a specific ratio stimulates the production of growth hormone.2
Recover-Me's unique formula is based on this study and contains both these amino acids in the correct ratio.2
With higher levels of growth hormone (GH), the body stays in a 'build-up' state for longer, so you stay leaner, store less fat and produce more energy. It Increases your over-all well-being.6
The ageing of our bodies an inevitable process. As we age, the pituitary gland produces less and less growth hormone. As a result, the ability to regenerate (e.g. connective tissue, muscle tissue, bone tissue, wound healing) decreases.
L-Arginine is a semi-essential amino acid. Until long bone growth is complete (from around the age of 23), our bodies produce sufficient L-Arginine. After that, the body produces less and less L-Arginine, and the body absorbs less and less of it from food.
As we get older, the pituitary gland produces less and less growth hormone. As a result, the ability to regenerate is reduced. At the same time, the immune system also loses an important stimulus, T-lymphocytes, which can significantly reduce immune function and cause infections, for example, after strenuous exercise or stress.
Dr L.J. Ignarro, winner of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for the discovery of nitric oxide in the veins, says the following: (see video on the right)"When nerves stimulate different parts of the body they do so by releasing a chemical, well the major chemical in the brain that is the released for many nerves is nitric oxide.
Increasing nitric oxide levels in the blood relaxes blood vessel walls, improving blood flow throughout the body, including the penis.
Nitric oxide also improves the elasticity of blood vessels.
Nutrients and oxygen can be transported to the organs more quickly, which has an overall positive effect on potency, stamina and sexual performance. 11
The production of Nitric Oxide in the front part of the brain causes us to fall asleep.
It has the opposite effect to caffeine. By increasing the level of nitric oxide in the blood vessels, the body falls asleep faster and more deeply.
The conversion of sugar or fat into energy for muscle is called muscle metabolism. The speed of this conversion determines how quickly energy can be used. The waste product of muscle metabolism is lactic acid (lactate). Lactic acid has to be transported out of the muscle through a channel. Too much lactic acid in the muscle leads to muscle acidification and fatigue.
Your ability to produce nitric oxide can predict how well you will perform during exercise. The increased blood flow,4 allows your body to recover more quickly during and after exercise, reducing the rate at which your muscles acidify.
The innermost layer of the blood vessels responds to the presence of Nitric Oxide, dilating the blood vessels and increasing blood flow. The improved circulation increases the heat in your limbs. This naturally promotes recovery after strenuous exercise.
