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.
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.
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.
