ARASYN™ is a patented arachidonic acid supplement for sports nutrition use. Arachidonic acid (ARA) is a polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid that is found naturally in many foods including chicken, beef, eggs, and fish. This fatty acid is considered biologically essential because it plays many important roles in health including infant development, cognitive functioning, immunity, inflammation and healing, insulin sensitivity, and bone mineral density. Arachidonic acid is also deeply involved in the process of muscle growth, triggering key signaling pathways within the muscles that facilitate protein synthesis and anabolism.
ARASYN™ arachidonic acid supplementation for 8 weeks during a resistance-training program has been shown to break training plateau (stagnation) in experienced weightlifters, significantly increasing lean body mass (muscle size), strength, peak muscle power, and average muscle power. Arachidonic acid supplementation has also been shown to reduce resting inflammatory markers. These effects were demonstrated during independent University studies on ARASYN™.
