Usable energy Scitec AAKG, Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate is an advanced form of the amino acid Arginine as it is bound with Alpha Ketoglutarate, an important part of the Krebs energy cycle (the so-called citric acid cycle) and the metabolism of amino acids. This citric acid cycle is involved in converting carbohydrates, proteins and fats into usable energy.
Arginine increases nitric oxide. Nitric oxide helps to clear the blood vessels, allowing more blood to be pumped to the muscles. This contributes to a better blood flow so that nutrients such as proteins, carbohydrates and amino acids can better reach the working muscles. A possible increase in the oxygen content towards the heart and other muscles contributes to a better performance during the high intensity of a physical exertion.
