OstroVit A-AKG - 200 g Unflavoured
During workout muscle cells are exposed to excessive loads and to function properly they require continuous supply of oxygen, energy, and nutrients. Unfortunately, due to limited flow capacity of the blood system during intensive workout problem occur with key elements transportation. What happens when oxygen or energy are deficient? Muscle performance decreases and you are no longer able to repeat an exercises or a series. AAKG offers a perfect solution to this problem. Due to effect of AAKG nitric oxide (NO) production grows. Nitric oxide has a beneficial effect on blood system, increases its flow capacity and therefore ensures continuous inflow of oxygen and nutrients to cells.
This product is intended for people exercising recreationally and professional athletes. Containing L-arginine in a highly bioavailable form of - alpha-ketoglutarate (AKG), formed by the coupling of L-arginine with alpha-ketoglutarate - an intermediate metabolite of the Krebs cycle - the metabolic pathway leading to the manufacture of energy substrate for working muscles - ATP molecules.
Increases exercise performance
For maximum muscle pump
Allows you to workout harder and longer
Significantly accelerates regeneration after training
Allows for better nutrition and oxygenation of muscles
Arginine is a nutritional element from which active biological compounds are formed in the body, namely agmatine and nitric oxide (NO). They are important for figure shaping, developing functional capacity and preserving sexual performance. Arginine enables adequate blood, oxygen and nutrition supply to the muscular tissue, as well as facilitating muscle growth, adipose tissue reduction and erection.
A number of properly controlled clinical investigations have proved that 2g of arginine given to sportspeople over a period of 5 weeks, results in a substantial (in comparison to the control group) strength increase and growth of lean muscular mass, as well as a reduction of fat and protein decomposition products.
In this reaction, arginine is transformed into gas hormone - nitric oxide (NO). Nitric oxide triggers the production of cyclic nucleotides. In muscular tissue, cyclic nucleotides take part in blood circulation and oxygen, amino acids, creatine and energy elements distribution, as well as in generating strength impulses and protein anabolism. Thus, they stimulate strength increase and muscle growth. On the other hand, in fat cells, cyclic nucleotides intensify the processes of lipolysis and thermo genesis, that is the dissociation of spare fat cells which liberates thermal energy.
In this reaction, arginine is transformed into polyamines - essential for protein synthesis. Not only do polyamines build up muscle tissue with proteins, but they also produce new muscle cells! So, thanks to arginine (indirectly), we can achieve constant and permanent muscle growth.
In this reaction, arginine is transformed into agmatine - an amine, which has similar characteristics to thermogenics, especially yohimbine. Agmatine increases the level of cyclic nucleotides, which, as already mentioned in point 1, influences muscle growth and fat reduction.
Arginine is also transformed into creatine, which was not mentioned in the points above, because of the widespread accessibility of creatine supplements.
Serving Size: 1 Level Teaspoon (2g)

Amount Per Serving:
Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate (AAKG) 1920mg
Micronized Taurine 20mg
Vitamina B6 0.4mg (35%**)
*RDA%: Percent of the Recommended Daily Allowance.
† RDA not established in the EU.
Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate (AAKG), taurine, pirodyksyny hydrochloride, ).
Dosing recommendations are 2-4 grams taken pre and/or post-workout. When taken pre-workout, arginine users report increased muscle pumps and stamina. Due to increased NO production and blood flow, when taken post-workout arginine will increase nutrient delivery and protein synthesis. As an aid in sexual efficiency - 2-3 grams before the sexual activity.
