Agmatine is a relatively new compound in the
supplement market that is gaining popularity. So why is Agmatine useful
and why do some refer to it as a “Super Arginine”?
What is Agmatine?
Agmatine is a metabolic byproduct of Arginine produced through a
process called decarboxylation. Agmatine is basically Arginine with the
carboxylic acid end removed. Agmatine produces the byproducts
Guanidino-butyladehyde and the polyamines putruscene, spermine, and
spermidine which are involved in cell growth. Agmatine is found in
tissues throughout the body and is synthesized and stored in astrocytes,
glial cells in the brain and spinal cord, which provide structural and
metabolic support to the nervous system among other actions. Agmatine
acts as a neurotransmitter and neuromodulator with a vast array of
actions in the body.
