Is injecting soya amino acids into the arteries safe?

I m an exercise enthusiast whose going for results with quad regimens,I m using amino acids from soy bean extracts. I m doing something unusual though, I m injecting the extract directly with a sringe needle into the quad artery. This action has already happened. Its normally forbidden for exercise reasons but since I ve already done it whats your opinion given real experience with candidates who ve been successful if you have any?

You should never do this. Direct injection of amino acids in arteries can lead to:
1. Thrombophlebitis (inflammation and swelling.)
2. Local site infection and cellulitis.
3. Embolism and blockage of major arteries like cerebral and coronary arteries.

So never do this otherwise you may have to face above mentioned complications.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
