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, and can be found in meat products as well as synthesized in a lab. 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 your workout.† 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 potentially provides detoxification and neuroprotective qualities.† Alpha-Ketoglutarate could 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.†
How does L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate Work?
L-Arginine is synthesized from two amino acids, glutamine and glutamate, and proline. Arginine is used to synthesize nitric oxide, which helps blood vessels to relax and expand, making it integral in regulating healthy blood flow and assisting in regulating blood pressure. In addition to acting as a vasodilator, it also supports muscle protein synthesis. With the increase in Nitric Oxide production, blood is able to flow more freely to muscles that are being exercised and allow for an increase in oxygen and nutrient delivery. AAKG may promote lean muscle mass production by producing growth hormones while also reducing the build-up of lactic acid, which causes muscles to be sore after a workout.
