Agmatine is a naturally occurring compound, formed when arginine breaks down.
Agmatine is specifically classified as a neurotransmitter and as such, is synthesized and stored in the brain for later use in nerve, synapse and hormone signaling functions.
It is this latter point that is of most interest to athletes. Agmatine seems to act as a “Super Arginine”, surpassing the old amino acid in every conceivable way and actually fulfilling on the vastly under-met promises of yester-years’ Arginine.
Just some of the proposed benefits of Agmatine include increased growth hormone output, increased IGF-1 output, increase luetenizing hormone output, creates an ideal environment for better insulin sensitivity, increases nitric oxide through multiple different pathways, acts as an anti-oxidant, helps build muscle, helps burn fat and may actually help offset pain associated with over-training. Whew!
As you can see, Agmatine is truly a new Super-Nutrient that has the research to back it up. Now, finally, you can affordably see for yourself all of the promises that Agmatine holds!
As a dietary supplement, take 500mg 1-2 times daily.

Agmatine is wonderful. I get major pumpage when using this. Can play with dose, my favorite is 750 mg upon waking, and 750 mg pre workout. Along with 100mg R-ALA to get some additional benefit, ala Blueprint. I prefer this to Blueprint, personally. With so many benefits, this will always be in my cart.
One of the best supplements out there! By: Howard

I am an older physical enthusiast in my fifties. Let me tell you that I consistently get major mood and focusing enhancement from both agmatine powder and blueprint. I also get a nice mild pump and strength feeling all day long from this stuff which I, indeed, like. What more could a guy want? It's very nearly the perfect otc supplement for mental and physical enhancement. A great bang for your buck. I, for one, plan on alternating the powder with the blueprint caps for the indefinite future. This stuff is just an absoluetly top notch life extensionist and body building supplement. I love it. Watch out as this stuff might really start taking off in poularity as word gets out and I do predict that will happen people. I NEVER rave about anything but this stuff deserves it big time. Much better than arginine in my opinion. I have absoluely no relation to any supp company either. I have been searching for something like this for a long time now. Give it a shot.

I really can notice an improvement with my mood and focus. I just have an overall feeling of well being and relaxation. I also slept better. I haven't noticed a big improvement with pumps (but i never did with anything else). A must try.

I sprained my hand couple days ago, started use agmatine with cisssus, but started cissus first. Notice recovery was musch faster with agmatine. Regardless the pumps with product are insane, veins bulging like crazy, feel great on it. Definite more strentgh, size, vascularity, energy, and endurance. Highly recommend it.

I originally bought this to see if it would help curb my tolerance to my ADD medicine. I don't notice it affecting how my ADD medicine works so far, but I will buy it again for its great relief during exercise. I can run three times longer with sustained energy, endurance and minimal cramping. Rebound is great too, less soreness, shorter cool down time.
