Nutritional ergogenic aids have been in use for a long time to enhance exercise and sports performance. Dietary components that exhibit ergogenic activity are numerous and their consumption is common and popular among athletes. They often come under scrutiny by legal authorities for their claimed benefits and safety concerns. Amino acid derivatives are propagated as being effective aids to enhance physical and mental performance in many ways, even though studies have pointed out that… Expand
Nitric Oxide/Arginine: Is Cardiovascular Modulation Effects in AthletesSupplementation?
TLDR
The purpose of this review is to provide an overview on the accumulating evidence concerning not only the importance of NO and its associated precursors in exercise and sports performance, but also the inherent cardiovascular modulation during workout, to ascertain the possible benefits and hazards. Expand
Synergistic effects of citrulline supplementation and exercise on performance in male rats: evidence for implication of protein and energy metabolisms.
TLDR
CIT supplementation and endurance training in healthy male rats modulates both muscle protein and energy metabolisms, with synergic effects on an array of parameters, including performance and protein synthesis. Expand
Nutraceuticals in sports activities and fatigue.
Abstract Fatigue during exercise is defined as the inability to maintain the required level of strength and performance. Doping agents and manipulation of any kind are undesirable companions ofExpand
The Influence of Circulating Polya mines and Amino Acids on Lean Body Mass
Polyamines have been implicated in a number of age-related phenotypes. The relationship between polyamines and lean body mass has been less explored. Moreover, the relative influence of amino acidsExpand
Dietary strategies for mitigating osteosarcopenia in older adults: a narrative review
TLDR
This review summarizes the available literature concerning the influence of protein intake and supplementation and supplementation on the decline of musculoskeletal integrity in healthy older adults and attempted to give some suggestions to build up adequate nutritional and dietary strategies against the age-related loss of muscle and bone mass. Expand
An open-label, single-center pilot study to test the effects of an amino acid mixture in older patients admitted to internal medicine wards.
TLDR
The results suggest that the AA mixture limits several alterations associated with low mobility in older hospitalized patients, such as length of stay, 90-d postdischarge hospitalization, and falls, preventing the loss of muscle function, as well as the increase of circulating interleukins and oxidative stress markers. Expand
Taurine and skeletal muscle function
TLDR
Future research should target the mechanisms responsible for the transport of taurine into human skeletal muscle and determine why the muscle defends the normal taurin content in the face of elevated plasma taurines levels, as opposed to the results in rodent muscle. Expand
Maternal HMB treatment affects bone and hyaline cartilage development in their weaned piglets via the leptin/osteoprotegerin system
TLDR
It can be concluded that maternal HMB supplementation in the mid-gestation period significantly accelerated bone development in both sexes by upregulation of a multifactorial system including leptin and osteoprotegerin. Expand
Guanidinoacetic acid versus creatine for improved brain and muscle creatine levels: a superiority pilot trial in healthy men.
TLDR
Results indicate that GAA as a preferred alternative to creatine for improved bioenergetics in energy-demanding tissues. Expand
L-tyrosine supplementation does not ameliorate skeletal muscle dysfunction in zebrafish and mouse models of dominant skeletal muscle α-actin nemaline myopathy
TLDR
This study evaluated the ability of L-tyrosine treatments to improve skeletal muscle function in all three published animal models of NM caused by dominant skeletal muscle α-actin (ACTA1) mutations and revealed no benefit on the mechanical properties, energy metabolism, or atrophy of skeletal muscles of 6–7 month old mice.

Nutritional ergogenic aids and exercise performance.
TLDR
The use of nutritional supplements in sport is widespread and few serious athletes do not, at some stage in their career, succumb to the temptation to experiment with one or more nutritional supplements, but further evidence is required before the use of these supplements can be recommended. Expand
Creatine as nutritional supplementation and medicinal product.
  • G. Benzi, A. Ceci
  • Medicine
  • The Journal of sports medicine and physical fitness
  • 2001
TLDR
Creatine, as other nutritional factors, can be used either at supplementary or therapeutic levels as a function of the dose and usually are of the order of the daily turnover, while therapeutic ones are three or more times higher. Expand
L-carnitine supplementation in humans. The effects on physical performance.
TLDR
The authors are of the opinion that this paper, besides shedding light into some relevant aspects of energy turnover in muscle, could also be of practical use not only for the physiologists but particularly for the Sport Medicine practitioners. Expand
Risk assessment for carnitine.
TLDR
The OSL risk assessment method indicates that the evidence of safety is strong at intakes up to 2000mg/day l-carnitine equivalents for chronic supplementation, and this level is identified as the OSL. Expand
Is there a rationale for the use of creatine either as nutritional supplementation or drug administration in humans participating in a sport?

  • 2000
Even though no unambiguous proof for enhanced performance during high-intensity exercise has yet been reported, the creatine administration is charged to improve physical performance and has become aExpand
Risk assessment for creatine monohydrate.
TLDR
The OSL risk assessment method indicates that the evidence of safety is strong at intakes up to 5 g/d for chronic supplementation, and this level is identified as the OSL. Expand
Long-term creatine supplementation is safe in aged patients with Parkinson disease.
TLDR
Although serum creatinine levels increased in Cr patients because of the degradation of Cr, all other markers of tubular or glomerular renal function, especially cystatin C, remained normal, indicating unaltered kidney function. Expand
Ergogenic aids.
TLDR
Physical therapists should be able to recognize the signs of ergogenic aid abuse in individuals under their care, and they should be aware of the side effects of these aids. Expand
Risk assessment for the amino acids taurine, L-glutamine and L-arginine.
TLDR
Although much higher levels of each of these amino acids have been tested without adverse effects and may be safe, the data for intakes above these levels are not sufficient for a confident conclusion of long-term safety, and therefore these values are not selected as the OSLs. Expand
The nutritional biochemistry of creatine
TLDR
Improvements in maximal exercise performance are achieved following creatine ingestion possibly relates to an increase in phosphocreatine concentration, specifically in Type II muscle fibres, maintaining adenosine triphosphate resynthesis during exercise. Expand
