ArginoCarn® Provides Weight Control Support

ArginoCarn® is safe and effective as a dietary weight control, and support supplement, that assists fat burning and helps boost energy levels.

Fat Burning Assistance

Studies show ArginoCarn® enhances both lipolysis and fatty acid (stored energy) oxidation, mobilizing into working tissue for cellular metabolism. This creates energy and increases the fat burning process, especially when combined with aerobic activity.

Treber, M., J. Dai, et al. (2003). "Identification by Mutagenesis of Conserved Arginine and Glutamate Residues in the C-Terminal Domain of Rat Liver Carnitine Palmitoyltransferase I That Are Important for Catalytic Activity and Malonyl-Coa Sensitivity." J Biol Chem 278(13): 11145-11149.

Carnitine palmitoyltransferase I (CPTI) catalyzes the conversion of long chain fatty acyl-CoAs to acylcarnitines in the presence of l-carnitine. To determine the role of the conserved glutamate residue, Glu-603, on catalysis and malonyl-CoA sensitivity, we separately changed the residue to alanine, histidine, glutamine, and aspartate. Substitution of Glu-603 with alanine or histidine resulted in complete loss of L-CPTI activity. A change of Glu-603 to glutamine caused a significant decrease in catalytic...

Khedara, A., T. Goto, et al. (1999). "Elevated Body Fat in Rats by the Dietary Nitric Oxide Synthase Inhibitor, L-N Omega Nitroarginine." Biosci Biotechnol Biochem 63(4): 698-702.

The influence of the dietary nitric oxide (NO) synthase inhibitor, L-N omega nitroarginine (L-NNA) on body fat was examined in rats. In experiment 1, all rats were fed with the same amount of diet with or without 0.02% L-NNA for 8 wk. L-NNA intake caused elevations in serum triglyceride and body fat, and reduction in serum nitrate (a metabolite of nitric oxide). The activity of hepatic carnitine palmitoyltransferase was reduced by L-NNA. In experiment 2, rats were fed for 8 wk with the same amount of...

Iwasaki, K., K. Mano, et al. (1987). "An Anabolic State in the Heart Induced by Arginine Intubation." Biochem Int 14(1): 129-134.

Using rat heart perfusion, we found that an anabolic state can be induced with a medium which includes glucose, carnitine, branched-chain amino acids and arginine after arginine intubation at a dose of 250 mg/kg body weight. It showed diminished levels of glutamine, glutamate, branched-chain oxoacids and phenylalanine (a marker of heart protein metabolism) release, reflecting anabolic changes occurring in the myocardium. While ornithine intubation caused a catabolic state in which the release of alanine and ...

Johnston, C. S., C. Corte, et al. (2006). "Marginal Vitamin C Status Is Associated with Reduced Fat Oxidation During Submaximal Exercise in Young Adults." Nutr Metab (Lond) 3: 35.

BACKGROUND: Vitamin C is a cofactor in the biosynthesis of carnitine, a molecule required for the oxidation of fatty acids. A reduction in the ability to oxidize fat may contribute to the reported inverse relationship between vitamin C status and adiposity. To examine this possibility, we conducted a preliminary trial to evaluate the impact of vitamin C status on fat oxidation during submaximal exercise. METHODS: Fat energy expenditure was determined in individuals with marginal (n = 15) or adequate (n = 7)...
