This placebo-controlled double-blind study was designed to investigate the effect of arginine and ornithine (arg and orn) supplementation during 3-week heavy-resistance training on serum growth hormone/insulin-like growth factor-1/insulin-like growth factor-binding protein 3 (GH/IGF-1/IGFBP-3), testosterone, cortisol, and insulin levels in experienced strength-trained athletes. [...] Key Method The subjects were randomly divided between a placebo group (n = 8) and the l-Arg/l-Orn-supplemented group (n = 9), and…Expand
Hormonal response to L-arginine supplementation in physically active individuals
TLDR
The supplementation of L-arginine did not appear to stimulate the production of insulin, GH, and IGF-1 and, thus, provided no benefit in hormonal response or exercise performance in trained runners. Expand
L-arginine does not improve biochemical and hormonal response in trained runners after 4 weeks of supplementation.
TLDR
According to the results, 4 weeks of L-arginine supplementation did not cause beneficial changes in metabolic and hormonal parameters, beyond those achieved with exercise alone. Expand
Exercise training reverses the negative effects of chronic L‐arginine supplementation on insulin sensitivity
TLDR
It is confirmed that chronic arginine supplementation leads to insulin resistance, which can be reversed in the association with exercise training, providing further evidence that exercise training is an important tool to improve whole‐body metabolism. Expand
IGF-1 response to arm exercise with eccentric and concentric muscle contractions in resistance-trained athletes with left ventricular hypertrophy.
TLDR
A role of IGF-1, possibly released from contracting muscle, in stimulating LV hypertrophy in resistance training is suggested, and it is suggested that LVH is accompanied by elevated resting serum IGF- 1 and enhanced response to eccentric arm exercise. Expand
Effects of Glycine-Arginine-α-Ketoisocaproic Acid Supplementation in College-Age Trained Females during Multi-Bouts of Resistance Exercise
TLDR
The findings suggest that GAKIC increased lower body resistance performance in trained college-age females; however, these findings are not necessarily generalizable. Expand
An Overview of Ornithine, Arginine and Citrulline in Exercise and Sports Nutrition
TLDR
This review focuses on the effects of ornithine, arginine and citrulline supplementation on performance and considers the potential of these amino acids as sports supplements. Expand
L-arginine α-ketoglutarate Does Not Increase Muscular Force Output or Endurance in Untrained or Resistance-Exercise Trained Young Females
Supplements marketed as nitric oxide stimulators have recently become extremely popular among people engaged in resistance exercise training, but their efficacy has not been fully documented. Thus,Expand
Acute L-arginine alpha ketoglutarate supplementation fails to improve muscular performance in resistance trained and untrained men
TLDR
The results from this study indicate that acute AAKG supplementation provides no ergogenic benefit on 1RM or TLV as measured by the standard barbell bench press and leg press, regardless of the subjects training status. Expand
Effects of Regular Exercise and L-Arginine Intake on Abdominal Fat, GH/IGF-1 Axis, and Circulating Inflammatory Markers in the High Fat Diet-Induced Obese Aged Rat
TLDR
It is suggested that exercise alone or L-arginine alone or a combination not only increases the GH and IGF-1 concentration, but also decreases the abdominal fat mass. Expand
Combination of aerobic exercise and an arginine, alanine, and phenylalanine mixture increases fat mobilization and ketone body synthesis
TLDR
It is suggested that pre-exercise ingestion of A-mix causes a shift of energy source from carbohydrate to fat combustion by increasing secretion of adrenalin and glucagon by increasing fat catabolism during and post-ex exercise. Expand

Effects of exercise and alkalosis on serum insulin-like growth factor I and IGF-binding protein-3.
TLDR
Concentrations of IGFBP3 were elevated above baseline at IP in both experimental and placebo conditions, and increases in IGF-I over resting conditions occurred with placebo conditions at 5 and 10 min postexercise and in the experimental condition at 5 min postExercise. Expand
Low-dose amino acid supplementation: no effects on serum human growth hormone and insulin in male weightlifters.
TLDR
The ergogenic value of low-dose oral amino acid supplementation in increasing hGH or insulin secretion seems questionable. Expand

TLDR
In conclusion, intra-arterial IGF-I exhibits growth hormone- like effects at all doses tested, whereas the insulin-like effects are observed at higher doses; these effects appear dependent on the route of administration. Expand
Effect of protein supplementation during a 6-mo strength and conditioning program on insulin-like growth factor I and markers of bone turnover in young adults.
TLDR
Protein supplementation during a strength and conditioning program resulted in changes in IGF-I concentrations, and serum bone alkaline phosphatase concentrations changed over time, which were greater in the protein group than in the carbohydrate group. Expand
Effects of resistance training on insulin-like growth factor-I and IGF binding proteins.
TLDR
Findings indicate that increased circulating IGF-I may, at least in part, mediate increases in strength that result from resistance training. Expand
Growth hormone and testosterone interact positively to enhance protein and energy metabolism in hypopituitary men.
TLDR
GH-induced increase of circulating IGF-I is augmented by T, which does not increase IGF- I in the absence of GH, but T exerted independent and additive effects on protein metabolism, F(ox) and REE. Expand

TLDR
It is inferred that gender strongly controls the relative but not absolute magnitude of A/G synergy both at rest and after exercise, and exercise is likely to induce release of both GHRH and somatostatin. Expand
Overnight responses of the circulating IGF-I system after acute, heavy-resistance exercise.
TLDR
The results from this study suggest that acute, heavy-resistance exercise can lead to alterations in the IGF-I system that can be detected in the systemic circulation. Expand
Oral arginine attenuates the growth hormone response to resistance exercise.
TLDR
The combined effect of arginine before exercise attenuates the GH response, and autonegative feedback possibly causes a refractory period such that when the two stimuli are presented there will be suppression of the somatotrope. Expand
Responses of IGF-I to endogenous increases in growth hormone after heavy-resistance exercise.
TLDR
Data demonstrate that a high-intensity bout of heavy-resistance exercise that increases circulating GH did not appear to affect IGF-I concentrations over a 24-h recovery period in recreationally strength-trained and healthy young men. Expand
