L-Ornithine-L-Aspartate: Enhanced Performance and Endurance

  What is L-Ornithine-L-Aspartate? L-Ornithine-L-Aspartate (LOLA) is a combination of two natural nonessential L-amino acids: ornithine and aspartic acid. Combining the two together, in theory, makes LOLA more effective through increased bioavailability. Research has shown that LOLA can reduce elevated ammonia levels in the blood. As we exercise ammonia levels slowly increase in skeletal muscle. …

Creatine Uptake, Bioavailability, and Efficacy – We’ve Gotten it all Wrong and Low Serum Creatine Levels are Better!?

  It has been a while since I’ve discussed the bioavailability of different forms of creatine. On various supplement sites, the notion that there was one form of creatine that was significantly more bioavailable and would thus allow you to ‘load’ muscle phosphocreatine (PCr) faster and more efficiently is obviously still a matter of constant …
