AAKG Pure Powder - 7 oz.
  • L-Arginine-alpha-ketoglutarate
  • 100% Pure
  • Unflavored
  • Vegetarian Formula

NOW AAKG contains Arginine, a conditionally essential amino acid that has a number of vital roles in human biochemistry.  Arginine plays a pivotal role in the urea cycle, helping to rid the body of excess ammonia.  This amino acid is also important in protein synthesis as well as for the support of healthy  immune function.  NOW AAKG has paired Arginine with Alpha-Ketoglutarate, another key player in amino acid metabolism, as well as in energy production.

Arginine increases nitric oxide in the body, which relaxes the smooth muscle tissue, widening the diameter of the blood vessels.  Taking NOW AAKG increases the flow of blood and oxygen to the cells, generating a continuous surge of blood into the muscles. When nitric oxide is present in the muscles, it activates the body's muscle building mechanism, known as protein synthesis.

When you widen the blood vessels, you can carry more blood to muscles and tissues, which deliver increased amounts of protein, carbohydrates, fat, growth hormones and testosterone, and all of which are required for muscle growth.  AAKG creates a continuous muscle pump so that your muscles look defined, and it increases strength and stamina. It signals your body to grow new muscle, and speeds your recovery between workouts.
