A growing body of research is showing that regular exercise can boost the body's immune system by increasing the circulation of natural killer cells that fight off viruses and bacteria. Regular exercise has also been shown beneficial to lower blood pressure, reduce bad cholesterol, and cut the incidence of Type 2 diabetes. If you do exercise regularly, it is important to supplement yourself with all important nutrients in order to achieve the best athletic performance. Amino acids are important for athletic performance since they support protein synthesis and muscle building. Creatine is an amino acid supplement you should definitely consider if you are a serious athlete who wants to ensure maximum intensity workouts and optimal gains in muscle size and strength. Creatine works by increasing the creatine content of skeletal muscles, which in turn extends the time muscles can exert maximal power. D-ribose is another important supplement because it acts as a precursor for ATP (energy) synthesis. ATP fuels all body functions, including muscle contraction. Some studies have provided evidence that ribose supplementation can enhance ATP levels and performance during consecutive days of very high-intensity exercise. Arginine is another important amino acid required for NO synthesis and athletic performance. In one study, healthy men who consumed arginine reduced the amount of oxygen required (i.e., increased efficiency) to perform exercise, and increased time to exhaustion by 26% during high intensity cycling.
