1. L-Citrulline Malate 2:1
L-Citrulline is an amino acid that is converted to l-arginine in the liver after consumption and is more effective at raising l-arginine levels in the body than supplementation of l-arginine itself. (1)
L-Citrulline supplementation can enhance the use of amino acids, especially the branch chain amino acids during exercise and also increase the production of arginine-derived metabolites such as nitrite and creatinine.
(2) L-Citrulline increases plasma levels of ornithine and arginine which provide circulatory benefits. (2) L-Citrulline promotes athletic performance, the ammonia recycling process, nitric oxide metabolism and cardiovascular health. L-Citrulline promotes more intense and longer lasting pumps. There are very few foods that have sufficient amounts of L-citrulline.
Also known as ALCAR, this form of Carnitine has a wide range of benefits, such as supporting the metabolism of stored fat to be used in the production of ATP energy by the body which your muscles use to power you through your workouts. ALCAR is also involved in the synthesis of acetylcholine which adds cognitive benefits such as promoting a positive mood as well as supporting learning ability. (3) Carnitine is able to counter age-related decline in tissue carnitine levels and improve fatty acid utilization. Carnitine transports long-chain fatty acids from the cytoplasm into the mitochondria which are then used as a source of energy. At the same time Carnitine removes short-and medium-chain fatty acids formed by the metabolic processes of the mitochondrial body, preventing their accumulation, which leads to an increase of free CoA, thus protecting cells from potential destabilizing acyl-CoAs. (3) Carnitine also alleviates the effects of muscle damage. (4)
3. CoEnzyme Q10
CoEnzyme Q10 (Q10) is a molecule found in mitochondria that plays a critical role in the production of energy and is an effective antioxidant that occurs naturally in the body. Q10 acts as a cofactor that works within the mitochondria in the metabolic process and is important for respiration and oxygen utilization which leads to ATP production. (5) It also plays an important role in the endogenous antioxidant system. Some research suggests minor improvements in the function of blood vessels, leading to reduced blood pressure and improved blood flow. As much as 95% of the energy required by the body, including the heart, is generated by the ATP system. In fact the heart, liver, and kidneys all have high energy needs and naturally contain high concentrations of Q10. Q10 acts as an antioxidant that reduces high blood pressure and promotes a healthy heart and for those reasons among many others has been approved to treat heart failure in Japan since 1974.. (6)
4. Betaine Anhydrous (Trimethylglycine)
Betaine is used clinically to decrease homocysteine in plasma. (7) There appears to be a relationship between high levels of homocysteine and artery damage, which can lead to atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and blood clots. (8) Betaine supplementation improves selected markers of physical performance. (9) Betaine has been shown to be an ergogenic aid, which supports blood flow and is able to indirectly support whole-body methylation. When optimal methylation occurs, it has a significant positive impact on many biochemical reactions within the body that regulate the activity of the cardiovascular, neurological, reproductive and detoxification systems, including but not limited to those relating to DNA production, neurotransmitter production, detoxification, histamine metabolism, estrogen metabolism, eye health, fat metabolism, cellular energy and liver health.
