AAKG is Arginine with a malic acid attached. The effects are said to be more pronounced over Arginine HCl, with users gaining advantages in nitric oxide production and oxygen delivery to muscle cells. AAKG can help give users higher energy levels in the gym and create a pump effect.If you want to train full instead of flat, Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate (AAKG) is here to help!
AAKG is actually two different compounds bonded together. The salt of an arginine molecule is bonded alpha-ketoglutarate, a precursor to the amino acid l-glutamine. The amino acid l-arginine is found naturally in foods like cottage cheese, oatmeal, beef and chicken. Arginine is a precursor to nitric oxide production and vasodilation.
It's commonly found in most NO products to aid workout performance.
AAKG is thought to offer better absorption than regular l-arginine, thereby offering enhanced NO production. Essentially, AAKG offers all the support of arginine in a form designed to absorb quickly and efficiently.
If you are type 1 diabetic and using AAKG, you may find a much greater need for high GI carbohydrates around this time. We suggest consumers with diabetes consult their healthcare professional before using this product.
A typical dose of AAKG is between 2g and 6g per day. For best results, multiple smaller doses are advised.
Note a flat 5ml scoop provided equals 3.4g of AAKG.
AAKG works well as part of a pre-workout stack or blend. With AAKG's training and performance benefits, consider taking it roughly 30-45 minutes before your workout.
Please note: this product does not come with a scoop.
We recommend the use of micro scales when dosing.

Diabetics should use caution when using AAKG. It has been noted that when blood vessels dilate, glucose levels can drop dramatically, and for most people, this is simply replenished from liver stores. Diabetics, however, don't have islet cells so the body won't detect the drop and the potential are there for a massive "hypo state" that could last for hours.
