Arginine AKG (AAKG) has been shown to be useful for reducing the accumulation of lactate and ammonia during physical activity. This action of arginine alpha-ketoglutarate (AAKG) delays muscle fatigue. This is due to the effect that the AAKG has on the production of nitrogen oxide. The increase in nitrogen oxide in muscle tissue can have many anabolic effects, including an increase transport of nutrients and vasodilation. The best moments for taking AAKG arginine are 30 minutes before a training session and after the workout to stimulate recovery.
Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate (AKG)
AKG 1250 by net integratori is a supplement composed exclusively of Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate (akg).
The Net Supplements labs managed to create a single tablet with the highest dosage of AKG per tablet.
1 tablet = 1250 mg AKG
AKG is the union of the amino acid arginine and alpha-ketoglutaric salt. In addition to all the advantages linked to the metabolism of arginine, it also increases the synthesis capacity of Nitric Oxide (NO), therefore producing a positive effect in terms of oxygenation and capillarization of tissues and vascular health.
Precisely because of the ease of conversion of this amino acid into nitroxide or nitric oxide (no) within the body.
Nitric Oxide promotes relaxation and dilation (increase in diameter) of blood vessels, consequently increasing blood flow both in the vessels themselves and towards the muscle fibers. A more abundant blood supply translates into a greater supply of glucose, amino acids, fats and oxygen to the cells and optimizes energy production.
AKG also helps to delay muscle fatigue by promoting the disposal of ammonia (which increases fatigue). It has been shown that it acts positively on growth hormone (GH) levels.
Overall it is an amino acid with anabolic function, which helps to transform fat into an energy source in addition to stimulating muscle growth.
> Increase the nitric oxide
NO (Nitric Oxide) is a substance that performs various functions within the body, the most important for bodybuilders is its ability to enhance blood flow into the muscles and regulate muscle growth.
NO causes an increase in blood flow by dilating the smooth muscle cells of the blood vessels; consequently, the amount of oxygen, nutrients and anabolic hormones carried into the muscles increases.
The results are a more intense pumping, increased energy resources that feed the workout, improved transport of other supplements, greater efficiency in repairing the damage caused by the workout and, ultimately, greater muscle growth.
Within the body, arginine is transformed very quickly into nitric oxide with the help of an enzyme called nitroxide synthase (nos).
Research has shown that it is possible to increase the production of no by taking more arginine.
Several studies have shown how Akg is more suitable and effective for stimulating NO, as it contributes to the passage of optimal quantities of water, glycogen and other nutrients from the bloodstream to the muscle cells, where they can be used completely.
