Studies related to Heart Rate and Arginine

Hemodynamic And Vascular Response To Resistance Exercise With L-arginine

Effect None
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 24 hours
Number of Subjects 17
Gender Male
Age Range 18-29
Body Types Overweight
Notes for this study:
Supplementation of 7g L-arginine prior to resistance training exercise failed to note significant differences in blood flow and pressure (a lone subset increased, although it was significantly lower at baseline; all other parameters were not influenced). Vascular resistance was unaffected.

Acute L-arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate Supplementation Fails To Improve Muscular Performance In Resistance Trained And Untrained Men

Effect None
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 24 hours
Number of Subjects 16
Gender Male
Age Range 18-29
Body Types Trained, Untrained, Average
Notes for this study:
3g of Arginine AAKG, when used acutely 45 minute before exercise, failed to improve performance in either naive or trained subjects.

L-arginine-induced Vasodilation In Healthy Humans: Pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic Relationship

Effect None
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 1-7 Days
Number of Subjects 8
Gender Male
Age Range 18-29
Body Types Average
Notes for this study:
Infusions of arginine were able to reduce blood pressure without affecting heart rate, but 6g oral supplementation failed to replicate these effects.

Effects Of 7 Days Of Arginine-alpha-ketoglutarate Supplementation On Blood Flow, Plasma L-arginine, Nitric Oxide Metabolites, And Asymmetric Dimethyl Arginine After Resistance Exercise

Effect None
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 1-7 Days
Number of Subjects 24
Gender Male
Age Range 18-29
Body Types Trained, Average
Notes for this study:
7 days supplementation of Arginine AAKG at 12g daily in physically active men failed to influence blood pressure/flow or heart rate and also failed to influence either nitric oxide metabolites or ADMA.
