More details

There's no shortage of sports supplements lining the shelves of your local health store claiming to improve your athletic performance, and arginine alpha-ketoglutarate is among them. Manufacturers promote AAKG for building muscle, improving exercise endurance and aiding in recovery from workouts. Unfortunately, studies to support these claims are lacking. What's more, reports of adverse side effects exist. Consult your health care provider before taking an AAKG supplement.

What It Is

Arginine is an amino acid, and alpha-ketoglutarate is an intermediate in the citric acid cycle, also known as the Krebs cycle. The citric acid cycle is a series of reactions that involve the breakdown of stored glucose to produce adenosine triphosphate. ATP is a high-energy molecule that provides your cells with fuel. The citric acid cycle plays a major role in providing the energy you need during exercise.

What Supporters Claim

Proponents claim arginine alpha-ketoglutarate increases nitric oxide production, thus improving athletic performance and helping to build muscle. Nitric oxide is a gas your body produces naturally. It relaxes smooth muscle, expands blood vessels, increases blood flow and helps cells communicate with each other. In theory, increased blood flow to muscles serves to improve endurance and workout performance, decrease recovery time and stimulate muscle growth.
