AAKG+is a supplement based on Arginine Alpha-ketoglutarate, formulated to increase muscle mass and strength.
Arginine is a conditionally essential amino acid. Up to 14 years of age, it is vital to take it in the diet, while during adulthood our body can synthesize the quantity required to cover the need for it. However, in cases of psychophysical stress, traumas or some pathological conditions, our body cannot support the necessary quantity of arginine and it is therefore necessary to supplement it.
It has been proven that arginine plays a detoxing role in the body, preventing the accumulation of ammonia that occurs after intense physical exercise or muscle work, fighting the feeling of fatigue.
In our body, Arginine is converted into citrulline, via the nitric oxide synthetase enzyme. From this reaction, nitric oxide is produced that has a vasodilating action and improves the transport of nutrients to the muscles. As a consequence of this, muscle mass and strength increase.
Arginine is involved in synthesizing creatine and acts as an endogenous stimulant for the release of the growth hormone (GH).This seems to be enhanced by the intake of other amino acids at the same time, ornithine in particular. Arginine and ornithine are strictly connected since ornithine is synthesized starting from arginine, thanks to the action of the arginase enzyme.
Finally, Arginine is the most powerful insulinogenic amino acid, which means that it succeeds in secreting insulin that stimulates vasodilation and blood flow by the increase in nitric oxide synthesis. Vasodilation involves increased transport of nutrients with a consequent increase in muscle mass and strength.
In AAKG+, Arginine is present as alpha-ketoglutarate that enhances these effects thanks to its increased bioavailability, in particular of muscle tissue. Moreover, ketoglutarate is a source of Arginine and Ornithine too, therefore creating a perfect synergy effect.
