Arginine AAKG (Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate) is a salt of the amino acid Arginine combined with Alpha-Ketoglutaric Acid. Arginine AAKG promotes increased nitric oxide production. Nitric oxide is a signaling molecule that triggers vascular dilation – the widening of blood channels. By increasing the volume of blood flowing through muscle tissue you get a wide range of benefits, including increased oxygen and nutrient delivery, glucose uptake, muscle velocity, and power output. All of this adds up to an extreme, intense, and extensive muscle pump effect. Arginine AAKG also stimulates production of growth hormone – a chemical produced by the body that promotes growth of lean muscle mass and also plays an essential role in metabolism. Arginine AAKG aids to reducs the buildup of lactic acid and ammonia which can cause muscle pain and delayed recovery time between training sessions. Taking Arginine AAKG as a dietary supplement ensures adequate amounts of nitric oxide are available during high intensity training sessions, leading to increased strength, muscle growth, and a speedy recovery.
