Apollo’s Hegemony Agmatine is a dietary supplement containing agmatine in the form of agmatine sulphate, which has a wide range of effects on the organism; for example, it improves blood flow and nutrition in muscles, helps to restore sensitivity to stimulants, and has a positive influence on the functioning of the nervous system.
Agmatine is a natural metabolite of the amino acid arginine, formed in the presence of the enzyme arginine decarboxylase.
According to recent scientific research, agmatine is considered to be an endogenous neuromodulator and neurotransmitter that increases the activity of the parts of the brain responsible for, among other processes, concentration, short- and long-term memory, and executive functions.
Agmatine exhibits nootropic and neuroprotective properties (it prevents excitotoxicity). Moreover, it can prove a promising agent in terms of alleviating neuropathic pain (it works in synergy with some analgesics) as well as serve as an aid in the treatment of, for example, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, brain trauma, or addiction to stimulants.
It has been proven that agmatine has antidepressant properties: it can elevate the mood and eliminate anxiety. When combined with some antidepressants, such as bupropion, it exhibits synergic activity with them and reinforces their effects.
Agmatine increases the effect of a muscle pump and improves blood flow and nutrition in muscles, thanks to which it increases psychophysical endurance and enhances post-workout regeneration, as well as reduces the sensation of muscle fatigue.
Agmatine helps to restore sensitivity to stimulants and helps to get through the difficult withdrawal period. Thanks to its ability to antagonise NMDA receptors in the glutamatergic system, it helps to increase the concentration of the neurotransmitters whose levels drop in response to excessive excitability caused by regular stimulant supplementation, for example with caffeine.
To sum up, Apollo’s Hegemony Agmatine is a dietary supplement which increases blood flow in working muscles. Apart from that, it also has a positive effect on memory and concentration and the general health of the nervous system as well as reduces tolerance to stimulants.
