About Arachidonic Acid (ARASYN™)

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.

Benefits of Supplementation

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™.

Arachidonic Acid (ARASYN™) Mechanism of Action

Arachidonic acid is a major constituent of muscle cell membranes. It accounts for roughly 10-25% of the fatty acid content here. When the muscles are damaged during training, this fatty acid is rapidly released and metabolized to local signaling molecules called prostaglandins. These send messages to increase protein synthesis and repair/build the muscles. ARASYN™ supplementation allows the individual to rapidly increase muscle arachidonic acid levels, and amplify the effects of this important muscle-building nutrient.

Recommended Dosage

ARASYN™ Arachidonic Acid is most effective for building muscle size, strength, and power at a dosage of 500-1,500 mg per day. This should be taken for a period of 2 months, when the individual is stuck in a training plateau (not making significant progress during the previous 4-6 weeks). This protocol should be repeated 1-2 times per year. Lower doses (100-250 mg/day) may be taken on a regular schedule to augment dietary arachidonic acid intake and support sustained progress during resistance training.

ARASYN™ Development

The discovery that arachidonic acid supplementation could be utilized to increase muscle mass and athletic performance was made by research scientist William Llewellyn. Mr. Llewellyn was granted U.S. patent on his work in 2005.

Works in the REAL World

With REAL Weightlifters Struggling for REAL Gains

ARASYN™ Stands Alone. No other supplement has been shown in placebo-controlled University studies to break training stagnation in experienced weightlifters, supporting significant new gains in muscle size, strength, and power!
