Astenor Forte is a unique product, that increases energy in the body, enabling you to perform better and recover quicker, in states of physical and mental exhaustion. Astenor Forte provides the energy needed for high-intensity activities and can therefore help those who want to improve their performance. It can also help with recovery after surgery, chemotherapy or convalescence after infectious, respiratory, cardiac or neurological diseases.
Astenor Forte also contains ingredients that may help with conditions including burnout, muscle cramps and pain, sexual asthenia, pregnancy (trimester 2 & 3), postpartum and post-COVID-19 syndrome.
Astenor Forte contains arginine and malic acid. L-arginine is one of the amino acids (the building blocks of proteins) the body needs to function properly. One of the most important functions of arginine is its involvement in the Urea cycle, where it has a role in the removal of toxic ammonia from the body (via the kidneys) by its conversion to urea. Arginine is also important in healing wounds and injuries, maintaining sexual hormone function and widening and relaxing arteries and blood vessels (improving blood flow). It may also reduce blood pressure and promotes cellular and organismal growth and supports the release of growth hormone. In addition, it is an important structural component of proteins and takes part in the energy metabolism of the muscles. Malic acid is directly involved in the Krebs cycle, a process that the body uses to obtain energy. It is involved in the energy metabolism of the muscle system by stimulating the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a compound that provides energy to muscle cells. Malic acid is an effective metal chelator, which means that it can “stick” to toxic metals accumulated in the liver and then eliminate them and may also prevent the formation of kidney stones.
