Human growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland. It helps children grow and then, for adulthood, its role is to maintain tissues and organs. Researchers think that human growth hormone can increase muscle mass and reduce body fat in healthy adults.
Does the amino acid L-Arginine, found in Sante Global’s Arginine Infusion health supplement, affect the release of human growth hormone?
Some scientific researchers believe that L-Arginine can help promote the release of human growth hormone. If it has been at least five years since a young person has stopped growing, L-Arginine may be tried to see if it helps increase their human growth hormone levels. It’s best to be under close medical supervision, and done in a way that “cycles” its use-- 6 weeks on, 3 weeks off.
For older people who have been losing muscle mass while increasing body fat, L-Arginine may help stimulate the release of human growth hormone in the body, helping keep their skin from becoming thinner and less flexible. If you’re between the ages of 25 and 45, it may be a good idea to take 10 to 30 grams of arginine daily in order to accomplish its positive effects.
It should be noted that arginine’s effectiveness as a growth hormone releaser is very unpredictable and age-dependent.
Ultimately, L-Arginine acts as a neurotransmitter, signaling the pituitary gland to up its production of human growth hormone. The more arginine you have in your system, the more human growth hormone gets released.
