Participants were randomly assigned to take either a blackcurrant cordial placebo drink or the genuine supplement, which was Ark 1 from Arkworld International Limited - which contains the L-arginine amino acid which enhances the production of nitric oxide in the body.

The results showed that the supplement:

Improves severe-intensity exercise endurance by 20percent

Significantly reduces systolic blood pressure

Reduces the oxygen cost of exercise

The report is published online by the Journal of Applied Physiology.
