Product description:

AAKG (L-arginine alpha ketoglutarate) is the combination salt of L-arginine and alpha ketoglutarate with the ratio of 2:1, thus this supplement provides both ingredients to offer synergic effects. L-Arginine is the precursor of nitric oxide (NO) to benefit cardiovascular system, immune system, male functions, and lean muscle building. Alpha ketoglutarate (AKG) is a key intermediate in amino acid metabolism, and energy generating biochemistry, that is called Krebs cycle or citric acid cycle.

Application:

L-arginine is used for heart and blood vessel conditions including congestive heart failure (CHF), chest painhigh blood pressure, and coronary artery disease. L-arginine is also used for recurrent pain in the legs due to blocked arteries (intermittent claudication), decreased mental capacity in the elderly (senile dementia), erectile dysfunction (ED), and male infertility.


L-arginine is used in combination with a number of over-the-counter and prescription medications for various conditions. For example, L-arginine is used along with ibuprofen for migraine headaches; with conventional chemotherapy drugs for treating breast cancer; with other amino acids for treating weight loss in people with AIDS; and with fish oil and other supplements for reducing infections, improving wound healing, and shortening recovery time after surgery.

Function:

AAKG is used by many elite power and strength athletes who show deficiency of arginine within the body as it is used unsparingly for natural creatine production. Aside from people engaged in serious strength training, AAKG has been used to treat patients suffering from burns, surgery, malnutrition and other trauma. Although the precise mechanism is unknown, AAKG treatment decreases muscle protein catabolism (breakdown) and/or increases protein synthesis, in addition to promoting wound healing. AAKG may promote the secretion of anabolic hormones such as insulin and growth hormone and increase amino acid metabolism (glutamine & arginine), which may help explain some of the clinical findings.
