How Arachidonic Acid Builds Muscle (3 Recent Studies)

2019-08-20T16:41:26+00:00

If you haven’t been closely following the science behind arachidonic acid (ARA), you should find this to be a very interesting update. A lot has happened. In particular, a trio of randomized controlled trials involving its supplementation by weightlifters were recently published, which go a long way to helping explain how this fatty acid supports muscle growth. The mechanisms behind it are both fundamental and super interesting! These studies were also University run and completely

It has been a hot couple of months for the study of arachidonic acid, principle representative of the omega-6 family. On the heels of a recent study showing its supplementation to increase the expression of myogenin and MyoD, another paper has been published looking at its role in the underlying mechanisms of hypertrophy (1). This is the 4th study of ARA supplementation by weightlifters, and also the 4th to produce favorable findings either with regard

2018-01-16T16:20:14+00:00

The third placebo-controlled study on Arachidonic Acid (ARA) supplementation in resistance-trained subjects has just been published (1). For those unfamiliar, ARA is a polyunsaturated fatty acid from the omega-6 family. It is considered the most important of its class, and is involved in various aspects of cognitive, cardiovascular, immune, and metabolic health. More on topic, it is also needed for muscle repair and growth. Full disclosure, my company introduced the first ARA supplement (X-FACTOR™) back

ARA: Effects on Muscle Growth, Strength, and Performance

2018-01-02T21:55:11+00:00

BrinkZone -  July 2014 I (Will) recently did a video on ARA which discusses a study that found ARA had positive effects on strength and muscle mass, but was not able to give details on the study at that time as it had yet to be published as an abstract or full paper. Finally, Monica now covers the meat of what most people really want to know about ARA: Can it increase strength and
