Been using Arginine and L-Citrulline for 2 years now, and getting excellent results. Unbelievable pumps from workouts. Also is a great WOOD enhancer...
I am, based on my own research and no claim of Muscle Feast’s, trying this to lower my blood pressure. Arginine helps an old guy like me boost NO and relaxes the arteries. So far I am down to 130ish/80ish from 140-150/90-95 after two weeks of use. If I could just remember to take it more than once a day it may have improved more.
Arginine is flavorless so I can mix it in my shake or take it straight,helps with muscle pumps.
I purchased the Arginine to take with the L-citrulline that I have been taking for some time now and what a difference they make together. Strength has noticeably increased and muscle pump is quite drimatic.
Increase nitric oxide levels
Increase blood flow
Improve nutrient delivery to muscles
Increase creatine and glutamine stores
Potentially increase growth hormone levels
Arginine alpha-ketoglutarate (AAKG) is a salt formed by combining two molecules of the amino acid L-Arginine and one molecule of alpha-ketoglutarate. L- Arginine is a nonessential amino acid that influences several metabolic factors that are important to athletes. AKG (alpha-ketoglutarate) is the nitrogen-free portion of the amino acid and it is formed in the Krebs cycle; the energy-producing process that occurs in most body cells.
The alpha-ketoglutarate version of arginine is more efficient. When you combine these two things it’s more easily absorbed, plus you get the benefits of both compounds.
AAKG can boost short term nitric oxide (NO) levels which creates a muscle growth environment in your body by increasing the volume of blood flowing through muscle tissue. This leads to increased oxygen and nutrient delivery, glucose uptake, muscle velocity and power output. AAKG also helps amplify muscle-growth signals giving faster gains in lean mass and accelerates both fast and slow twitch muscle fiber for greater strength, improved muscle recovery, and increased endurance.
There is no standard dose of L-Arginine AKG. Studies have used different amounts for different conditions. One common dosage is 4 to 6 grams three times a day.
Most people taking L-Arginine AKG have few side effects. It can cause nausea, cramps, diarrhea, allergic reactions, and asthma symptoms. It could also cause low blood pressure and changes to glucose and blood chemical levels. The safety of long-term L-Arginine AKG supplement use is not clear. Ask your doctor for advice.
As an adult dietary supplement, take one serving (3g) one to three times daily with fruit juice. This product may be consumed 30 minutes prior to training.">
