What is L Arginine?

Arginine is an α-amino acid that is used in the biosynthesis of proteins. In humans, arginine is classified as a semi essential or conditionally essential amino acid, depending on the developmental stage and health status of the individual. Arginine is synthesized from citrulline in arginine and proline metabolism by the sequential action of the cytosolic enzymes argininosuccinate synthetase (ASS) and argininosuccinate lyase (ASL). This is an energetically costly process,because for each molecule of argininosuccinate that is synthesized, one molecule of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is hydrolyzed to adenosine monophosphate (AMP), consuming two ATP equivalents. Hence if a person having l arginine dietary supplementation should not add citrullinemalate additionally because citrulline is a precursor for arginine hence use of both the peroduct will give synergistic action.


How it acts in a body?

In the body, the amino acid arginine changes into nitric oxide (NO). Nitric oxide is a powerful neurotransmitter that helps blood vessels relax and also improves circulation. Some evidence shows that arginine may help improve blood flow in the arteries of the heart. This phenomena Result into vasodilation ,the trasportation of micronutrients and macronutrients gets increases Thus the muscle pump and muscle quality improves . Due to this vasodilatory action of arginine It also useful in erectile dysfunction. I.e.It has dual action .


 How one should take arginine?

There are three types of formulation available in the market viz. tablet ,Powder and liquid, among all liquid  is most  preffered . procedure to make arginine shake.

  1.  Add a serving of l-arginine powder to a drinking glass. ...
  2. Pour enough grape juice into the glass to dissolve the powder. ...
  3. Add drops of lemon juice to the grape juice using an eyedropper.


 Why you should take arginine?

Arginine taken at this time boosts growth hormone (GH) levels during and after the workout, as well. Consider taking one dose in the morning and one before bed to keep your NO levels high throughout the day, regulate muscle growth and spike GH levels while you sleep. Hence it helps to achieve your dreamt muscle quality.

All you need to know about Gainers!!                

 What Is A Mass Gainer?

A mass gainer is a supplement that provides protein, carbohydrates and possibly fats

With the intention of helping to add muscle mass. It is a high-calorie protein powder.

The more calorie intake more will be the gain. These mass gainers generally comes with proteins

and carbs in the  ratio of 1:4 or 1:5.These products has much more calories that helps in increasing

Muscle mass, muscle girth and restore extra carbs in the forms of glycogen. Although  prolong

Use of mass gainer might give person a bulky appearance, hence proper supplementation & expert guidance is needed in order to build proper aesthetics physique. To put on mass you need to be in a calorie surplus. This means you are consuming 300-500 calories more per day than you’re burning through exercise and just going through your daily routine.

If you have been trying to add mass and you’ve seen no increase in weight then you’re not in a calorie surplus. Without being in a surplus you’re not going to gain mass. It really is that simple. When trying to reach a calorie surplus it is important to consume the right quality of macronutrients. You may well have heard the phrase ‘dirty bulk’, which refers to eating whatever you want to achieve a calorie surplus. Consuming fried chicken may increase your calorie intake but it also comes with increased fat.


Let me put more light on; what is muscle builder?

These are one of the category of supplements that has proteins to carbs ratio of 1:2 or

1:3.generally delivers 350 calories per serving. Gym enthusiasts looking to build muscle

 and gain mass might choose muscle builder supplements. The combination of proteins may help

 give you a slight muscle-building edge and the extra calories can encourage anabolism & muscle

 growth.  Supplement manufacturers may also claim that their products help you recover faster and

burn fat. Unless you are undergoing a strict strength-training regimen, muscle builder supplements

 are probably unnecessary.

When it comes to workout nutrition , it becomes quite confusing what should be taken pre-workout such that before workout so as to maintain the optimum energy level throughout the workout process .the choice of protein and carbohydrates and their quantity required in the pre and post- workout meals are targeted to serve two purposes.

1)  It should provide enough fuel that can enhance muscle performance during workout process.

2)  The one that helps in faster recovery

 Energy   system of a human body

Why there is need of pre-workout nutrition?

Muscle contraction during weight training or cardiovascular training requires energy. Muscle contracts due to actin and myosin protein filaments comes closer by sliding over each .This sliding of the actin and myosin protein filaments in the muscle needs energy .If a optimum level of energy deriving sources such as  carbs  and  protein is not up to the mark there is process called catabolism takes place that leads to breakdown of muscle hence pre-workout nutrition has an important role in muscle building process.

BMR stands for basal metabolic rate is an important phenomena that contributes in fat loss process and this is directly proportional to the fat loss such that as a basal metabolic rate increases the fat loss will be more hence exercise training with higher calorie- burn involves only 1-2 hours of the day , where as our body burns calorie for our BMR continuously 24 hours of the day.

Main characteristics of pre-weight training nutrition

1)    Carbohydrates sources 

 The main purpose of carbohydrate intake is to  increase glucose storage as muscle glycogen .In order to achieve this goal the carbohydrate should be slowly absorbed such that there is slow release of glucose into the bloodstream and the insulin diverts all the glucose into muscle glycogen. Whole cereals – Wheat chapati, dalia , oates , cereals serve as better pre-workout  carbohydrates than fruits before intense weight training ,it supply higher quantity of carbohydrates and energy with lesser amount of fibre .

Slow –absorbed fruits includes Apple, Orange, pear, guava, papaya

Apple takes too long to digest as it contains fructose and high fibre. Pre –weight training carbohydrate should never be fast absorbed and high fibre- food.

2)   Protein  sources

 The main purpose of pre workout protein source is to prevent muscle breakdown for amino acids .During an intense workout, amino acids such as the Branched chain amino acids BCAA are rapidly used for energy .supplying a best quality protein of high biological value and rich in BCAA will reduce breakdown of muscle protein for obtaining the same amino acids.

Slow absorbed first-class protein rich in BCAA is the ideal pre-workout protein

Few example skimmed milk paneer or casein, combination of egg white and yolk may be included. The protein source should never be heavy to digest and second class protein such as pulses, soya , nuts and other plant protein. Recommended quantity may be 20-30 grams of first class protein.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid

7/29/17 4:01 PM






     1)  What is alpha lipoic acid and how it is derived?

  Lipoic acid also known as α-lipoic acid and alpha lipoic acid (ALA) and thioctic acid is an organosulfur compound derived from octanoic acid. ALA is made in animals normally, and is essential for aerobic metabolism.Lipoic acid is present in almost all foods, but slightly more so in kidney, heart, liver, spinach, broccoli, and yeast extract. Naturally occurring lipoic acid is always covalently bound and not readily available from dietary sources. In addition, the amount of lipoic acid present in dietary sources is very low. For instance, the purification of lipoic acid to determine its structure used an estimated 10 tons of liver residue, which yielded 30 mg of lipoic acid. As a result, all lipoic acid available as a supplement is chemically synthesized.  


      2)   Mechanisms of action and its function


 Lipoic acid neutralizes free radicals and associated oxidative cellular damage.Lipoic acid scavenges several reactive oxygen species .Lipoic acid also helps regenerate antioxidant vitamins C and E.In addition, lipoic acid promotes the activity of other antioxidants such as glutathione and coenzyme Q10, which are two essential anti-aging health-promoting compounds .Lipoic acid increases tissue GSH levels, which otherwise decline with age, by restoring glutathione peroxidase activity.Even without dieting, lipoic acid can greatly improve glucose and fat metabolism. As a result, more of the sugars and fats in foods will be broken down and used for energy instead of being stored as fat. This will also cause the consumer to feel the need to eat less. lipoic acid supplementation can protect DNA and cells against exercise-induced oxidative stress , and increase muscle regeneration .Lipoic acid supplementation decreases oxidative damage in the muscles in men who perform muscle-damaging exercises, regardless of whether they are trained or untrained.Abnormal inflammatory responses contribute to diseases such as diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and multiple sclerosis. Lipoic acid was shown to have an anti-inflammatory effect in subjects with multiple sclerosis, metabolic syndrome , and diabetes.Lipoic acid can reduce inflammatory markers in subjects with organ transplants.Lipoic acid alleviates acute inflammatory responses in animal models .In overweight/obese women, lipoic acid caused a greater reduction the marker of chronic inflammation CRP.In patients with type-2 diabetes, lipoic acid decreases blood glucose and improves insulin sensitivity.People with diabetes are more prone to oxidative stress, which means there is an imbalance of free radicals to antioxidants. Oxidative damage plays a key role in the development of diabetes-associated disorders and diseases.lipoic acid improved systolic blood pressure, dizziness, instability upon standing, leg edema and erectile dysfunction.it improves blood vessels in teem of their elasticity thereby decreases the systolic blood pressure, and indirectly decreases the load on heart.In obese subjects with impaired glucose tolerance, It decreased free fatty acids, triglycerides, total cholesterol, and LDL cholesterol. Lipoic acid also decreased proinflammatory markers and increased adiponectin.It shows antithrombotic affect which inhibit formation of plaque in the artery which blocks the passage for blood flow this condtion is know as atherosclerosis.so highly effective for cardiac health.Generally, you should supplement your diet with 200-400 mg per day. 


  3)Who can add this as a supplement in their diet?


 Those who are doing weight practises, fitness enthusiastic, marathon runner,geriatric population,and it is not less than so         called boon for diabetic person which helps to sensitise the insulin and help in maintaning the blood glucose level . In short in  it improves the all over helth of an individual.it speed up the return to normal pregnancy conditions and improve the    conditions of both the mother and the fetus.The dietary source provides inadequate amount of ALA,which is not proved to  be sufficient to elicit the pharmacological responses hence shoud be taken in already synthesized form, the product that are    available in HAP STORE are listed below 


   4) Product available with hap store

   1)   GNC Alpha Lipoic Acid

    2)  San ALA

    3)  Scitech Ala

Benefits of Antioxidants

7/20/17 3:06 PM


  Antioxidants are vitamins and minerals that protect our bodies from damage done by free radicals, these molecules attacks our body tissue ,muscle and result into retardation of muscle growth .An antioxidant is a molecule that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that can produce free radicals, leading to chain reactions that may damage cells. Hardcore workout generally tends to develop these highly reactive species in our body which ultimately affects the development, growth and recovery.

              Antioxidants are also used in anti-aging  formulation, most of cosmetics preparation that are claimed to be having  anti-aging formula are generally composed of various herbal antioxidants .As already discussed generation  of these free radical affects the tissue, By inhibiting them we can restore the skin cells ,tissue.

Common antioxidants include: vitamin A vitamin C vitamin E beta-carotene lycopene lutein selenium. You can get most of these antioxidants by eating a healthy diet. This includes a mix of colorful fruits and vegetables. Whole grains, seeds, and nuts also provide good nutrients. Vitamin A is in milk, butter, eggs, and liver. Vitamin C is in most fruits and vegetables. Eat fruits such as berries, oranges, kiwis, cantaloupes, and papayas. Eat vegetables such as broccoli, bell peppers, tomatoes, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and kale. Vitamin E is in some nuts and seeds. For example, almonds, sunflower seeds, hazelnuts, and peanuts. You can find it in green leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale. You also can find it in soybean, sunflower, corn, and canola oils. Beta-carotene is in brightly colored fruits and vegetables. Eat fruits such as peaches, apricots, papayas, mangoes, and cantaloupes. Eat vegetables such as carrots, peas, broccoli, squash, and sweet potatoes. It also is in some leafy green vegetables such as beet greens, spinach, and kale. Lycopene is in pink and red fruits and vegetables. This includes pink grapefruits, watermelon, apricots, and tomatoes. Lutein is in green leafy vegetables such as spinach, collards, and kale. You also can find it in broccoli, corn, peas, papayas, and oranges. Selenium is in pasta, bread, and grains, including corn, wheat, and rice. You can find it in animal products, like beef, fish, turkey, and chicken. You also can find it in nuts, legumes, eggs, and cheese.

             Various products are rich in antioxidants .they are listed as below. For trade inquiries please feel free to contact us.

Nitric oxide is a big deal . and what you are particularly interested in: vasodilation.

This vasodilation coincides with skin-tearing pumps, incredible nutrient delivery, reduced pressure and stress on your heart, and even plays a positive role in growth hormone production. All thanks to a little oxygen atom double bonded to a nitrogen atom forming a molecule short of one election.

Athletes and Bodybuilders benefit from Boosted Nitric Oxide Levels

For the average person who does not workout, basal nitric oxide levels are fine. However, as an athlete if your nitric oxide levels are low then your workout
experience, results, and recovery is lagging. This does not mean that by default that you need to take a nitric oxide booster. There are many ways to influence nitric
oxide production in the body, especially for bodybuilders and athletes. Let’s take a look at how that works.

NO also helps against ED and plays an important role in preventing it.

What Nitric Oxide Does for Bodybuilders and Athletes

Nitric Oxide for BodybuildingNitric oxide and likewise Nitric Oxide Supplements increase vasodilation during exercise by relaxing the tissues that compose your veins.
This increases the total output of nutritious oxygen rich blood flowing through your veins as well as reduces pressure on your heart.

Long term nitric oxide production stimulated by exercise contributes to the remodeling of your veins. This results in larger veins for an increased blood flow effect;
hence why you see such large veins on professional bodybuilders. Its not a case of them having absolutely insane nitric oxide pump at that moment, but rather long term
vein expansion.

Nitric Oxide Boosting Habits

Just like how the way you live influences testosterone production and metabolism, the way you live also influences your basal nitric oxide production. Aside from what
you eat, there are activities that promote nitric oxide production (nitric oxide synthase activity).

Exercise leads to increased nitric oxide production in athletes and bodybuilders. The exact mechanism behind this is too complicated to explain, but physical activity
effectively increases both nitric oxide synthase expression as well as nitric oxide synthase activation (Green et al, 2004). This is a two-fold increase or cascade
effect increase in nitric oxide.

Diets high in the amino acids L-Arginine and L-Citrulline naturally increase overall nitric oxide output. This up regulation is strictly a concentration dependent
increase in enzyme activity. Meaning, more Arginine is available to be used in the production of nitric oxide.

Citrulline is an amino acid that is produced when the amino acid ornithine combines with carbamoyl phosphate. This happens during the urea cycle, a way that the body disposes of nitrogen waste. The excess citrulline from supplementation is thought to put the urea cycle into overdrive, sucking up the ammonia (made of three nitrogen molecules) produced by working muscles before it can produce fatigue

L-citrulline is a naturally occurring amino acid found in food, such as watermelons, and also made in the body. Our bodies change L-citrulline into another amino acid called L-arginine and also to nitric oxide. L-citrulline might help increase the supply of ingredients the body needs to making certain proteins.

It might also help open up veins and arteries to improve blood flow and reduce blood pressure. Citrulline Malate gives you the massive veins which many of us want. It helps you vascodilation unlike caffeine which is a vascoconstrition.It helps you feel more energized during your workouts.

CM is very citric in taste so make sure you have it in a juice , for me I personally mix 5 gms of Citrulline Malate with 3 gms of Creatine in juice or any sports drink pre workout. Dosage - recommended dosages are 2 grams a day 30 mins prior to workout for beginers because excess of CM will give you a stomach Discomfort and 5-6 gms for athletes and pros. Citrulline is used for Alzheimer disease, dementia, fatigue, muscle weakness, sickle cell disease, erectile dysfunction, high blood pressure, and diabetes. It is used for heart disease, body building, increasing energy, and for improving athletic performance.

SOURCES- watermelons,legumes,meat,fish,nuts, or can be purchased as a supplement
