Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate 1000 mg Supplement

Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate, a specific form of arginine

This dietary supplement has been developed from a very specific form of arginine called Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate (AKG), a combination of alpha-ketoglutarate acid and arginine. Essential for the healthy functioning of the human body, arginine is an amino acid involved in many of the body’s metabolic processes. With a role in the synthesis of numerous molecules such as creatine, nitric oxide and human growth hormone, this amino acid offers a number of benefits. Scientists believe it has positive effects on the immune and cardiovascular systems as well as on muscle activity.

Beneficial effects on hypertension

In providing an intake of L-arginine, the supplement Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate promotes the production of nitric oxide, a compound known for its essential role in the vascular system. Increased nitric oxide production causes the blood vessels to dilate as the muscles in the vessel walls relax. This vasodilatory effect prevents an increase in blood pressure which is why arginine supplementation is indicated for those suffering from, or at risk of, hypertension. In this context, the specific form Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate has been shown to be more effective than L-arginine. Supplementing with AAKG promotes rapid and longer-lasting production of nitric oxide.

Therapeutic potential for treating sexual dysfunction

As a result of its vasodilatory properties, arginine has demonstrated positive effects against sexual dysfunction. By promoting nitric oxide production, arginine improves blood flow in every region of the body, including the genitals. It is also known to increase production of growth hormone which is involved in both male and female reproductive processes. Supplementing with arginine, in the form of AAKG, can therefore help increase libido and response to sexual stimuli. Improvements in sexual desire, in particular, have been observed in people supplemented with Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate.

Popularity of AKG supplements among sportspeople

For some years now, arginine supplements have been very popular with sportspeople, particularly those engaged in weight training. This is because of arginine’s stimulating effect on the production of growth hormone which burns fat and produces cellular energy. In this way, arginine supports muscle activity.

Optimal Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate formulation

The nutritional supplement Arginine Alpha Ketoglurarate provides an optimal level of 1000mg of AAKG per capsule with a suggested dose of between three and 12 capsules a day depending on individual need. If in doubt, seek advice from a therapist on the right dose for your particular needs.

Other arginine supplements are also available from our catalogue, such as the supplement L-Citrulline, a natural arginine precursor, and the complex Acetyl L Carnitine Arginate, which combines arginine and carnitine, another amino acid involved in cellular energy production.
