Arachidonic acid is an Omega-6 essential fatty acid. It is stored in muscle cells, and released when the muscles are stimulated from intense exercise or resistance training. It acts as a core regulator of muscle protein synthesis, and is responsible for increasing cellular sensitivity to primary anabolic hormones such as testosterone, insulin, growth hormone, and IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor 1). Because of its central role in the process of muscle growth, arachidonic acid is one of the most effective anabolic-supporting nutrients available for supplementation, capable of promoting significantly faster and more profound increases in muscle size, strength, and lipolysis (fat loss).
