What is L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate?
L-Arginine is a versatile amino acid serving as a precursor for the manufacturing of proteins, nitric oxide, urea, glutamate, and creatine in the body. Increased L-Arginine in the body may lead to an increase of Nitric Oxide (NO) production, which may also increase blood flow during exercise, allowing for muscles to perform longer under stress. The vasodilation effect of Nitric Oxide may provide a fuller and more satisfying pump during exercise.†
Nitric Oxide (NO) production puts the urea cycle into overdrive, allowing it to absorb more ammonia (composed of nitrogen molecules) produced by working muscles. Removal of ammonia from the brain is believed to have detoxification and neuroprotective qualities.†
Alpha Ketoglutarate is considered to help improve absorption and increase the bio-availability of L-Arginine, making the supplement more efficient and effective.†
AAKG Benefits may include:
- Improved Pump Intensity†
- Improved Nitric Oxide Production†
- Increased Muscle Protein Synthesis†

I enjoy this AAKG powder -- I've used a couple different brands but the consistency seems to be pretty on point with the hard rhino stuff. It's not overly priced and works well for me so I'll be sticking with it!
Great pump and recovery
The product comes quickly and in a durable (sealed) package. Taking this product for about one month and then stopping helped me feel and see the difference in total workout muscle endurance. It helps with endurance and recovery. High quality source - as good as it gets - and worth the money. I bought this same product from a different bulk supplier and the quality was below Hard Rhino's.
I find this to help with a quick recovery after a work out .I'm 56 years young but sometimes recovery takes a long time this product helps with the day after recovery & quickly returns you to everyday activity.
