Nitric oxide synthase (NOS) inhibitor; NMDA-activated ion channels blocker
REVIEW Agmatine sulfate is a natural metabolite salt of the amino acid arginine. It is formed when arginine is decarboxylated by the enzyme arginine decarboxylase and is found naturally. Some of the biochemical mechanisms discovered so far concern agmatine's indication for diabetes, neuroprotection, and psychiatric conditions.
