Agmatine Sulfate Powder
Agmatine Sulfate Powder
Agmatine sulfate is a compound derived from the amino acid, L-arginine, which is involved in the synthesis of proteins. When L-arginine undergoes what’s called decarboxylation, a process that results in the removal of a carboxylic acid, it becomes agmatine sulfate. This compound is stored in the neurons of the brain and released when those neurons are activated.
The process of creating and storing agmatine sulfate is what sets it apart from its amino acid counterpart. Agmatine sulfate is considered a “neurotransmitter” or “neuromodulator” As a nootropic, agmatine sulfate offers a wide range of potential benefits to your brain health and general fitness, these include:
Agmatine May Improve Recording of Spatial Memory
Agmatine is increased during spatial learning tasks and is stored in high levels in the hippocampus (a region of the brain associated with memory). Its role as a neurotransmitter is associated with memory formation. Agmatine also improved spatial memory consolidation, or the initial recording and storing of memory, but had no effect on the retrieval of memories in rats.
Agmatine increased brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in the brains of rats, a molecule that stimulates the production of new brain cells (neurogenesis). Agmatine increased adenylate cyclase activity in the prefrontal cortex of rats, a molecule associated with memory formation.
Agmatine May Protect Against Stress
Agmatine significantly reduced high body temperature from prolonged heat stress and fever in mice caused by bacterial toxins called lipopolysaccharides (LPS). Agmatine also increased the survival rate of mice exposed to LPS.
There is currently no standard dosage for agmatine sulfate because there haven’t been enough human studies for determination. These numbers are rough estimates to give an idea of typical, experimental dosing:
- To improve cognitive function: 200 to 500 mg of agmatine (daily)
- For vasodilation and enhanced recovery: 500 to 1,000 mg of agmatine (30 minutes pre-workout)
