Arginine and pycnogenol: 1 + 1 = 3
Better blood flow in endurance sports
L-arginine is an amino acid that plays a role in the synthesis of nitric oxide and, among other things, ensures greater blood flow in the vessels, resulting in better transport of blood and nutrients to the muscles. Extra blood supply to the muscles can help to increase endurance. In addition, it becomes easier for the body to drain and remove harmful substances that accumulate in the muscles during exercise.
What is Pycnogenol®?
Why can Pycnogenol play an important role in physical activity?
Physical exercise is important for general health and at the same time increases the oxygen demand of our body. Research suggests that Pycnogenol ® can play an important role in this physical activity, as this patented extract supports the body in producing nitric oxide NO, which improves blood circulation (particularly blood flow to the muscles). Pycnogenol ® supports the body in achieving peak performance and accelerates post-exercise recovery, which can lead to reduced muscle load in athletes.
How can Pycnogenol ® relax blood vessels and improve blood flow?
Pycnogenol ® stimulates the enzyme "endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS)" for a better production of NO from the precursor molecule L-arginine.
