Musclepharm have always been a company that has excelled in product development. In fact, since their refurbished branding a couple of years back, Musclepharm have gone from strength to strength creating supplements with ingredients that help to push boundaries of performance. There newest venture into the market is their “Nitrate Series”, a list of 5 new supplements (so far). Here we look at Arg-3, their arginine based nitrate supplement.
MusclePharm Arg-3 Highlights
- Arginine Nitrate for improved vasodilation and growth hormone support.
MusclePharm Arg-3 Ingredients & Dosage
Musclepharm Arg 3 is a fairly simple product with only a handful of ingredients, a common trait of their ‘Nitrates’ range of products. Here are some highlights:
- Arginine Nitrate – Arginine has always been a popular ingredient to use in pre-workouts and combining it with nitrate will aim to help boost the products ability to increase vasodilation.
MusclePharm Arg-3 Pros & Effectiveness
Arginine is a long time popular supplement. Often used in clinical settings to promote wound healing, arginine also has the ability to increase growth hormone in conjunction with other amino acids. Arginine is crucial as a substrate for the enzyme Nitric oxide Synthase in creating nitric oxide, an important vasodilator. Increased size of blood vessels means more blood pumping to your muscles allowing greater flow of nutrient to the muscles and greater flow of metabolites away from the muscle. Nitrates can also increase levels of nitric oxide by being reduced in the body.
MusclePharm Arg-3 Cons
Musclepharm’s Arg 3 is perhaps not the most revolutionary of products. After all, many companies have used either arginine, nitrates or arginine nitrate as an ingredient in their product. Perhaps, Arg-3 will differ through their use of other ingredient which are yet to be confirmed. Regardless, as the saying goes, if it ain’t broke, why fix it.
MusclePharm Arg-3 Taste & Mixability
Arg 3 comes in a variety of fruity/cordial like flavours and all taste quite pleasant. One thing that Musclepharm does do well is their ability to create products which mix easily and are easy to consume.
MusclePharm Arg-3 Verdict
Musclepharm have created a solid product with the release of their Arg-3. Time will tell just how innovative the product will be, but for now, it appears to be a suitable pre-workout supplement for those looking for one without a load of stimulants.
