No Effect Of Short-term Arginine Supplementation On Nitric Oxide Production, Metabolism And Performance In Intermittent Exercise In Athletes

Effect None
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 1-7 Days
Number of Subjects 10
Sex Male
Age Range 18-29
Body Types Trained, Average
Notes for this study:
Peak and mean power output as well as biomarkers of nitric oxide metabolism (nitrate and nitrite, citrulline) were unaffected in judo athletes given 3 days of 6g L-arginine supplementation prior to a cycle ergometer test. Despite no increase in plasma citrulline, however, an increase in plasma arginine was noted.
