Overview

What is Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate (AAKG)?

AAKG is made up of two arginine molecules bonded to an alpha-ketoglutarate salt. Arginine has increased bioavailability and uptake when paired with a salt such as alpha-ketoglutarate. As as semi-essential amino acid the body can produce its own arginine, however it requires a dietary source to fully meet demand for those of us who regularly engage in intense exercise.

What are the performance benefits of Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate (AAKG)

Supplementation with AAKG has previously been shown to increase peak strength and power (Campbell 2006). However, the method by which it boosts performance is not currently fully understood. The most popular theory is that Arginine is a direct precursor to Nitric Oxide, a potent vasodilator which is responsible for controlling blood flow. It stands to reason that if Nitric Oxide production can be increased, oxygen and nutrient delivery should also increase to the working muscles, keeping them fuelled. It is for this reason that AAKG is such a key ingredient in pre workout formulas and so popular with the bodybuilding community. In more recent times, endurance athletes have also begun to understand the performance benefits of a potential increase in Nitric Oxide production, leading to an increase in popularity of AAKG in the endurance community. AAKG also pairs well with other supplements, for example it has been shown that supplementation with AAKG and Creatine Monohydrate in combination can help to increase muscular endurance and power output more than Creatine on its own (Little 2008).

Q&A

What is AAKG? Is it better than standard L Arginine?

Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate (AAKG) is a salt form of L-Arginine, which is important for the regulation of blood flow and Nitric Oxide. Arginine has increased intestinal uptake when paired with a salt such as alpha ketoglutarate.

How does AAKG work?

AAKG may work as a vasodilator meaning it helps to expand the blood vessels and increase blood-flow. It may also increase muscular pump and vascularity.

When should I take AAKG?

As a pre-workout supplement to increase blood flow and muscular pump we recommend 2g, 30-45 minutes before training.

Suggested Use

Add five small scoops (2g) to 150ml of water in your GN™ Blender Bottle. Shake and consume immediately. Alternatively mix with your favourite juice to improve the taste.

We recommend two servings daily. Take one serving in the morning and the second approximately 45 minutes before training.

Small GN™ Scoop included.
