AAKG's full name is arginine alpha-ketoglutarate and it is often used by bodybuilders and anyone who trains hard in the gym as a powerful nutritional supplement which boosts energy and power. Our AAKG is a 2:1 ratio, currently thought to be the best ratio for AAKG supplements. 2 parts arginine to 1 part alpha-ketoglutarate.
The body uses AAKG to release and mobilise usable energy from stored calories. This energy combines within the body with natural stores of ammonia to create glutamic acid. Glutamic acid is a natural precursor of glutamine, an important amino acid which is crucial to muscle gain and muscle retention.
AAKG is often found in pre-workout supplements, and for good reason. It acts as a cell volumiser and most people can physically feel and visibly see this effect when they take an AAKG supplement before training. AAKG is also a powerful NO2 transporter and helps improve the delivery of l-arginine within the body.
Arginine is one of the essential amino acids and has a massive number of vital roles in the body. One of them is protein synthesis, making arginine supplementation critically important for bodybuilders, athletes and anyone looking to build muscle and lose body fat without sacrificing lean tissue.
Nitric oxide (NO2) is a powerful vasodilator, highly valued by bodybuilders for creating an intense pump that helps to swell muscles and exaggerate vascularity. AAKG supplements give most people a visibly increased muscular pump and a pumped-up feeling during training.
