increases NO production, Blood Vessel Dilation & Blood Flow! AAKG
contains Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate in the scientifically proven 1:1 ratio with no fillers.
Both arginine and alpha-ketoglutaric acid are precursors to nitric oxide (NO) production. The rate-limiting step of amino acid uptake into skeletal muscle is the transportation of the amino acids through the blood to the skeletal muscle, which is governed by blood flow. Nitric Oxide
dilates blood vessels, which increases blood flow. This increase when combined with exercises means greater blood flow and greater amino acid deliver and uptake in the working skeletal muscle. Exercise itself results in an increase in NO production, and the increased blood flow created by exercise is believed to be linked to the increase in protein synthesis.
Arginine is a precursor for NO production. Supplementing with exogenous Arginine increases NO production and therefore blood vessel dilation and blood flow, which will also for great nutrient deliver (i.e. amino acids) to skeletal muscle. The combination of alpha-ketoglutaric acid’s benefits with arginine’s benefits give AAGK
a clear edge over standard L-arginine.
