Magnesium plays a vital role in transmitting electrical impulses from the nerves to the muscles. This action triggers the muscle cell to contract. A magnesium deficiency can disrupt this process and interfere with normal nerve conduction and muscle contraction. L-arginine is a semi-essential amino acid involved in protein synthesis; it can become essential in situations of bodily stress, including intense exercise. It is also a precursor for both nitric oxide and creatine. Nitric oxide from L-arginine acts as a blood vessel dilator and ensures speedy distribution of nutrients like glucose and amino acids to the muscles. L-ornithine & L-citrulline can form L-arginine, which detoxifies ammonia that forms from protein breakdown (via the urea cycle). Removal of ammonia helps lessen feelings of fatigue. L-arginine also has the capacity to promote the secretion of human growth hormone, which is necessary for muscle synthesis. Malate (or malic acid) is an important substrate in the TCA cycle that produces cellular energy in the form of ATP. All together these nutrients can help with muscle performance, recovery, and growth.
