Biotech Men’s Arginine is a dietary supplement intended mainly for the men who are trying to take care of their health better. The product is a multicomponent formula based on arginine hydrochloride with additional ginseng and ginkgo biloba extracts as well as a complex formula of vitamins and minerals. Such a complex combination has a positive effect on nearly the entire organism.
The product contains:
Arginine hydrochloride – the main component of the supplement. Its main effect is supporting the circulatory system, as it is a substrate in the production of nitric oxide. As a result, it relaxes vascular epithelial smooth muscles, that way increasing their lumen. It helps to improve blood flow, which is crucial for maintaining a general good condition of the organism, especially in terms of exercise capacity during workout, and reduces blood pressure.
Another area where the activity of arginine can be observed is the nervous system. In this case, it mainly affects cognitive processes, that way enhancing the process of long-term memory formation (it takes part in nerve stimulation). It also stimulates neurogenesis. Apart from that, it helps to protect the nervous system from premature degeneration connected with aging: as the organism ages, the concentration of nitric oxide metabolites within the nervous system reduces, which is connected with the process of its degradation. As their substrate, arginine reduces the effect.
Additionally, it helps to improve sugar metabolism in the organism (it increases insulin secretion); it can also increase the release of the growth hormone.
Ginseng [(that is Korean ginseng (Panax ginseng) and American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius)] – a component with a wide range of positive effects on the organism’s condition, mainly thanks to the high content of ginsenosides.
It affects the condition of the nervous system to a great extent. It reduces nervous tension and tiredness. It helps to improve cognitive functions and increases their efficiency: tests have demonstrated its ability to boost information assimilation and memory. It is also believed to have neuroprotective properties.
Interestingly, it also exhibits efficacy in terms of improving the endocrine system. Its mechanisms help to increase endocrine testosterone levels. It is also believed to be able to reduce oestrogen levels. Apart from that, it can enhance male sex features.
The plants affect the functioning of the immune system to a great extent. They stimulate acquired immune cells in the organism and reduce systemic inflammation. The effect can be observed easily during physical effort.
Ginkgo biloba extract – a component used mainly for improving cognitive functions and supporting neural homeostasis. Technically, Ginkgo biloba affects nearly every type of signalling within the nervous system (which is why it is considered a neuromodulator). Among other effects, it increases the concentration of dopamine and noradrenaline in the prefrontal cortex, which stimulates memory formation. It also helps to maintain normal acetylcholine signalling (which is a neuroprotective effect), and to keep proper levels of histamine, which is crucial in the processes of learning and memory formation. It can also stimulate neurogenesis. Apart from that, it helps to reduce anxiety as well.
Ginkgo biloba helps to improve the functioning of the circulatory system. It reduces the risk of blood clots by reducing the process of platelet aggregation. It can indirectly reduce blood pressure by increasing vascular epithelium relaxation, which can consequently increase the lumen of blood vessels. That also supports normal blood flow.
A feature particularly important for men is the fact that is supports the homeostasis of male sex features.
Zinc (as zinc oxide) – responsible to a great degree for normal male hormone levels, as its deficiency leads to a decrease in the activity of androgenic receptors, and for reducing oestrogen levels. Additionally, it regulates the levels of IGF-1 (one of the most important growth factors in the organism) and leptin.
It functions as an immunostimulator, too. It stimulates acquired immunity cells and proves excellent when taken for regular colds or less invasive diseases by reducing their symptoms and duration.
Selenium (as sodium selenate) – a fantastic antioxidant and a component of many enzymes with antioxidant properties, like glutathione and selenoprotein. Because of that, it is one of the factors that determine normal immune responses in the organism. It is also crucial for the functioning of thyroid hormones: it determines the activity of iodothyronine deiodinase, which is responsible for converting the hormone T4 to T3 and rT3, that way playing an important role in the growth and proper thermogenesis of the organism.
Calcium alpha-ketoglutarate – calcium itself is crucial for maintaining the right condition of the skeletal system and the right signal transmission among the organism’s cells. However, the form of alpha-ketoglutarate that is used in this product is a specialist form that makes it possible to improve the calcium and phosphorus balance in the organism by binding excess phosphorus.
Additionally, the formula is enriched with a vitamin complex containing:
Vitamin A (as retinyl acetate) – essential in vision processes, it determines the right condition of the skin and stimulates immune processes (it is an antioxidant).
Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) – one of the components of the antioxidant system in the organism (for example, it cooperates with vitamin E in fighting free radicals), which determines its ability to stimulate the immune response. Additionally, it supports normal collagen synthesis. It is also believed to have neuroprotective properties and regulate the functioning of the circulatory system.
Vitamin E (as dl-alpha-tocopherol acetate) – the vitamin has a great influence on the immune system. It stimulates the cells of acquired immunity and is a component of the antioxidant system of the organism. Its proper levels are also responsible for a good shape of the skeletal system. Another one of its functions is the homeostasis of the circulatory system, as it prevents platelet aggregation and increases the number of red blood cells.
Vitamins of the B complex – vitamins with the greatest responsibility regarding metabolic processes in the organism, as they are usually the components of those enzymes that catalyse metabolic reactions. The complex contains:
Thiamine (as thiamine mononitrate), which is responsible for proper glucose synthesis (glucogenesis) and regulating blood pressure.
Riboflavin, responsible for the synthesis of two cofactors essential for energy processes – FAD and FMN.
Niacin (as niacinamide), which normalises lipid levels in the circulatory system. It also increases the concentration of NAD in the system, which is connected with its ability to improve cognitive and exercise capacity and slow down aging processes.
Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxine hydrochloride), which exhibits many synergic properties regarding the production of coenzymes crucial for the organism within the nervous and endocrine systems.
Folic acid, which stimulates methylation processes in the organism. Its proper levels are also connected with preventing diseases connected with the nervous system (including depression).
Vitamin B12 (as cyanocobalamin), which exhibits activity mainly within the nervous system (its deficiency is connected with an increased risk of developing nervous system diseases). It is also an important component of enzymes related with energy management in the organism and methylation processes.
Biotin – supports the condition of the skin and its derivatives (hair, nails). Additionally, it reduces glucose levels after meals by increasing insulin release.
Pantothenic acid (as calcium pantothenate), which is essential in the process of coenzyme A production, which forms many enzymes in the organism. It participates in the process of neurotransmitter synthesis. It also exhibits some antioxidant properties.
To sum up, Biotech MEN’S ARGININE is a great supplement worth including in everyday supplementation. It supports the homeostasis of the entire organism in a complex way and will prove perfect for men who are trying to take good care of their health.
In order to support the male organism in an even more complex way, it is recommended to combine the supplement with other components active in that area. For example, it is worth considering to combine it with longjack, maca or Epimedium root extracts.
It is also good to remember about other factors that support the organism, which are usually connected with everyday hygiene of life. The most important ones are good-quality sleep, a proper diet, and regular workout

Arginine is an exogenous amino acid, it is a component of dietary proteins, not always synthesized in the human body in necessary quantity, so it is necessary to deliver it in the form of synthetics. It takes part in the biosynthesis agmatine, creatine and nitrogen oxides. The use of supplements containing arginine before workout increases the exercise capacity (strength, endurance). Used after considerable effort intensifies the transfer of energy and building compounds and intensifies the process of recovery. Used at bedtime in combination with lysine and ornithine enhances the synthesis of growth hormone. takes part in the intrasystemic synthesis of creatine. Arginine (as a precursor of ornithine) is involved in the urea cycle, increases the flow of blood in the circulatory system, increases sexual potency (in a short time after application). It affects the body's immunity preventing infections, and lowers blood pressure. In supplements – usually as alpha-ketoglutarate.
Calcium (element chem. symbol Ca, atomic no. 20, the group of alkaline earth metals) is the basic building substance of bones and teeth, in which stored is 99% of the element, in the form of hydroxylapatite. When building bones and teeth, phosphorus is very important in the right proportion. It is a base-forming element and activator of many enzymes (ATPase) necessary to release the energy of ATP. It has a significant effect on blood clotting and regulates blood pressure and neuromuscular conductivity. Thanks to the reduced permeability of cell membranes, it soothes the symptoms of food allergies. Calcium is actively involved in the metabolism of iron interacts with vitamins A, C and D and phosphorus, magnesium. Natural source of calcium are animal products (dairy products, sardines, salmon, sprats eaten with bones) and plant products (nuts, soybeans, sunflower seeds). Absorption takes place in the small intestine (less in the colon), it has an effect on the level of lactose, insoluble fibre, organic acids, alkalinity (low pH). The best absorption have organic compounds (lactates, amino acid chelates etc.). Obstructing the absorption of calcium is caused by: phytic acid and oxalic acid as well as excess fat. Scientific studies have confirmed that the combination of calcium, magnesium, boron and vitamin D in dose 3 mg / 24h effectively prevent osteoporosis. Supplements on the market are both mono-preparation supplements (enriched with vitamin D3) and multi-component supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Calcium deficiency disorders manifested in the construction of the bones (osteoporosis) and iron metabolism. The symptoms are: rickets, cramps and muscle tremor, osteoporosis.
Excess resulting from an overdose of calcium supplements containing vitamin D3 for children and adults overdose of calcium (hypercalcemia). Symptoms of hypercalcemia are: lack of appetite, vomiting and constipation.
The dosage administered in various publications are inconsistent: 800 - 1000 mg / 24 h (100 - 500 mg / 24h)
Alpha-ketoglutarate (ionized Alpha-ketoglutarate acid, ketone derivative of glutaric acid). Involved in the metabolism of amino acids, oxidation, and transport of the nitrogen in the body. It accelerates the synthesis of components of food (anti-catabolism). In sports supplementation it is used in combination with arginine, glutamine and BCAA. As it is of excreting a toxic ammonia from the body - it is antitoxin. It is a part of sports pre- and post-training supplements, and anti-catabolic supplements and amino acid complexes.
Ginseng (Panax ginseng) standardized extract 27-30% of ginsenosides. The raw material is the ginseng root, from which is prepared the extract of substances called ginsenosides, containing 27-30% of this component. Ginseng root has been used for years in Oriental medicine. It shows the great biological activity: It increases mental and physical performance, increases vitality, is an antioxidant, strengthens the immune system, slows the ageing process.
In the sports supplementation extracts of ginseng support the exercise capacity (primarily oxygen metabolism of the body) and ensure fast renewal of muscular and nervous systems. Also enhances sexual ability. By standardizing, there is a higher concentration of the components, improving effectiveness, which raises the price of the product, but also guarantees its composition. Preparations of ginseng available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
American ginseng (Panax quinquefolium) – a plant species of the ivy family, native to North America. The main biologically active compounds found in this raw material are ginsenosides and quinquenosides, which are triterpenoid saponins. The content and kind of ginsenosides is similar to Panax ginseng. The root of the ginseng is mainly used in medicine.
American ginseng shows adaptogenic properties and that is why it is used to reduce mental tension and different kinds of stress. It influences positively immune function and has an antioxidant effect, thereby helping fight inflammation.
American ginseng supports cognitive functions, memory and focus. Owing to its stimulant properties, it reduces a feeling of fatigue and helps maintain vitaloty, physical fitness and sexual performance. The combination of American ginseng with another adaptogen, e.g. ashwagandha, will enhance its adaptogenic and rejuvenating properties.
Supplements with American ginseng are recommended especially to individuals who lead a stressful lifestyle, do strenuous physical or mental work and during drops in energy levels, fatigue and impotence, and the elderly to promote cognitive functions.
Ginkgo biloba (ginkgo biloba) - the world's only deciduous gymnosperm tree growing in Asia. A rich source of active ingredients (flavonoids and proanthocyanidins, terpenes) It affects the vascular system by extending the vessel while reducing bandwidth across cell membranes that protect red blood cells (RBC) against hemolysis, causes brain oxygenation, in the form of bilobalide protects myelin, causes the increased capacity of concentration and memory. In the sports supplementation used as component (in the form of extracts) of nutrients, improving circulation and processes of the wellness and health of the nervous system. Available as mono-preparation supplement and as a component of complex supplements.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) it is a vitamin soluble in body fluids, can be taken from foods (fruits and vegetables), or as drug derived synthetically. The largest of its resources can be found in broccoli, Brussels sprout, kale, black currant fruit and hawthorn, citrus fruits, tomatoes, Savoy cabbage, potatoes. In fact, intake of vitamin C of the food products does not limit the absorbed quantity. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a potent antioxidant, it is an antitoxic, increasing the immune system due to the elimination of risk of bacterial contamination. Vitamin C prevents rupture of blood vessels, affects the blood cholesterol level. It substantially increases the absorption of iron. Inhibits the growth of cancer cells. Lowers stress levels.
Vitamin C deficiency causes abnormal development of connective tissue, cracking capillaries, abnormal calcification of bone tissue, impaired absorption of iron, scorbutus. With the lack of vitamin C, all kinds of injuries do not heal up properly. Vitamin C deficiency can be caused by smoking; each cigarette is destroying up to 100 mg of vitamin C.
Dosage: The demand is 60-80 mg daily. It does not limit the ability to consume higher doses. Some side effects may occur only with longer taking of synthetic vitamin C.
Vitamin E (tocopherol) is a fat soluble. Due to its antioxidant action, it is a protection of other vitamins (e.g. Vitamins A). Protects the body against free radicals, strengthens the walls of blood vessels and its capacity, causing their dilation and dissolution of blood clots. With the reduction of coagulation, it is used as an antiatherogenic medicine, it allows for the proper course of pregnancy. In cooperation with selenium it slows the ageing process of cells, strengthening connective tissue. In the food it is present in whole-grain bread, sprout and grains, vegetable oils (soybean, sunflower), soya beans and sunflower seeds, vegetable fat and hen egg yolks. Also it is used in sports medicine in the form of nutrients and supplements.
Vitamin E deficiency reduces building of red blood cells, results in changes in muscle and disorders of pregnancies.
Dosage: for children, 0.5 mg / 1 kg of weight; for adults 10-30 mg per day.
Zinc (chemical element from transition group 12) belongs to the trace elements, it helps maintain acid-base balance of the body, protein, energy, lipid and carbohydrate metabolism. It provides bone metabolism and transport of oxygen. It protects the body against free radicals. Necessary for the proper operation of the senses of taste and smell. Positive impact on the process of insulin metabolism in the pancreas. It supports visual adaptation to the dark, has a significant influence on brain function. It is helpful in the treatment of infertility and mental illness.
Zinc deficiency leads to decreased immunity, and growth retardation. Zinc deficiency can occur in case of excessive consumption of simple sugars. In the case of hormonal therapy of women with irregular menstruation, the therapy should be associated with increased consumption of zinc. It can be found in food like: beans, eggs, carrots, beef and pork meat, milk, nuts, citrus fruits, seafood, rice, cottage cheese, lettuce.
Dosage: Daily 12-15 mg zinc. Exceeding the daily dose of 20 mg cause symptoms of poisoning of the body.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine, pyridoxal, pyridoxamine) is soluble in the liquid. It participates in the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. By reducing the amount of fat in the blood do not enable deposition of the body. It helps the absorption of magnesium and vitamin B12 (cobalamin). It works on the muscle antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory pain in the joints. It acts anti. It provides efficient operation of the brain. It increases energy increasing vigor of a man. The demand for vitamin B6 increases during pregnancy and breast-feeding infants. The natural product is: yeast, eggs, wheat germ, meat (liver), wheat bran, nuts, peanuts peanuts, soybeans. There is a hypothesis that can be synthesized by intestinal bacteria.
Deficiency of vitamin B6 causes abnormal metabolism of proteins, decrease in lymphocytes in the blood, causes a feeling of lethargy and fatigue intensifies.
Dosage: 1.5-2.5 mg daily (increased demand during pregnancy and lactation).
Vitamin A (retinol) is present in foods of animal origin (fish of the sea, fish, eels, liver, pork and beef, eggs, butter). In the plant products it is present as provitamin A (b-carotene), a powerful antioxidant. The food products containing pro-vitamin A are fruits in yellow and red, including apricots, tomatoes. Necessary in process of building and assimilation of proteins, affects the normal growth of bones and helps the treatment of eye diseases.Iinhibits the excessive action of the thyroid hormone - thyroxine, which simultaneously prevents the deposition of excess vitamin A. Necessary in the sports diet of in the form of food, such as dietary supplements and nutritional supplements.
Vitamin A deficiency causes growth inhibition, flaking and dryness of the skin, impaired night vision (i.e. Night blindness).
Excess of vitamin A leads to calcification of the bones and some soft tissues, and abnormalities in the functioning of glomerulonephritis
Dosage: Specified in IU and it is 5000 IU per day.
Folic acid - also known as vitamin B9, is a synthetic form of naturally occurring folates. It needs to be transformed to folates in order to be biologically active also in the human organism. Therefore, its supplementation is recommended to people who do not have problems with methylation processes.
The majority of people associate folic acid with the period of pregnancy. It is definitely a justified association. Proper supply of vitamin B9 conditions correct development of the fetus and prevents disorders of neural tube defects in a baby.
Supplementation with folic acid also demonstrates positive influence on the functions of the nervous system of adults. Some sources say that it is conducive to maintaining beneficial emotional states. Moreover, folic acid takes part in the process of erythropoiesis, thanks to which it enables efficient production of red cells.
Supplementation with folic acid should be also considered by men who deal with low sperm quality. It was proven that complementing the level of vitamin B9 is conducive to increasing reproductive abilities of men.
Biotin (vitamin H, co-enzyme R) is in a group of B vitamins, due to the presence of sulphur compounds it is involved in the synthesis of ascorbic acid (vitamin C). Also synthesized in the intestines. It enhances the production of hormones and regulates cholesterol levels. It reduces muscle pain. It prevents hair loss and graying of hair. It soothes the skin inflammations. No toxic effects. Often combined with other B group vitamins and vitamin A. The natural sources of biotin are: whole grain bread, yeast, eggs (yolk), milk, brown rice and cheese.
Daily demand: 100-300 mg per day
Selenium (element, chemical symbol Se, atomic no. 34, from chalcogenide, it is present in several allotropic forms). It is supplied the body with food in the form of seleno-amino acids (selenomethionine - gathering supplies, and selenocysteine – a component of glutathione peroxidase, deiodinase and seleno-proteins). Regulates the functioning of the thyroid gland. It affects the growth and development, including sexual development (by increasing production and sperm motility). It affects the flexibility of the tissue, removes some of the toxins from the body and destroys cancer cells and reduces the severity of menopause in women. Natural products containing selenium are seafood (sea fish, oysters, bladderwrack) and vegetable products (broccoli, onions, wheat germ, bran, tomatoes) and animal products (poultry, eggs). It is also included in the composition of vitamin-mineral and mineral supplements. Selenium supplementation is recommended as a dietary supplement of active people having diet poor in this element, and as a factor increasing the body's immunity.
Selenium deficiency increases the risk of developing cancer and heart disease. Symptoms of selenium deficiency are: cardiomyopathy, growth stoppage, disorders of detoxification processes which may lead to damage to the kidneys and liver.
An excess of selenium can lead to selenosis (the disease, the symptoms are: loss of hair, nail cracks, lesions).
