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

Despite the great things that are being said about L-Arginine, simple oral administration of L-Arginine alone does not trigger all of the benefits of the amino acid to play a significant role in the body. 

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.

Recover-Me is a special formula that maximises the absorption of L-arginine into the body.8

What do the amino acids L-Arginine Pidolate and L-Lysine do for the growth hormone? 2


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.  

The two types of lymphocytes are B lymphocytes and T lymphocytes.

  1. Lymphocytes are found in the bone marrow and remain there until they mature into B cells. You can think of B lymphocytes as a kind of intelligence system in the body - they find their targets and send the right cells to protect them.

  2. Some B-cells go to the thymus gland to mature into T cells. These T-lymfocyten are the protective cells, that destroy the invading cells that causes infections. Arginine1 stimulates the production of T-Lymphocytes. 12

What is the immune system?

The immune system is the body's natural defence against infection. It attacks germs and helps us stay healthy. Many cells and organs work together to protect the body.
  • White blood cells, also called leukocytes play an important role in the immune system.
  • Some types of white blood cells, called phagocytes, are responsible dor removing bad bacteria from the body.
  • Other blood cells, also called lymphocytes, help to keep the body strong and healthy.


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.

Nitric oxide is well known today to facilitate memory and learning no question about it this has been shown in animals, has been shown in humans.

What we have noted now is that in memory and learning disorders, particularly Alzheimer disease there is a deficiency a marked deficiency  in the formation of nitric oxide in those regions of the brain that regulate memory and learning.

Early clinical study show that if you boost nitric oxide formation in the brain you can restore memory and learning. So, I think there is hope for everyone who is suffering from a memory and learning disorder." Thus Dr. L.J. Ignarro.

Sexual function and Nitric Oxide.4

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

Nitric Oxide improves your sleep.5

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.

Nitric oxide and sport.3

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.

Physical performance

Nitric Oxide not only regulates and controls blood flow to skeletal and cardiac muscles, it also determines how efficiently your mitochondria produce cellular energy from oxygen.

Exercise intolerance in older people is due to their inability to effectively produce Nitric Oxide and regulate blood flow to the body.

The increased production of growth hormone2 will also help to improve your overall performance by causing your body to switch to a 'build-up' state, resulting in more lean body mass (muscle mass) and less fat storage!
