Product Overview

Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate (AAKG) is a salt of the amino acid arginine and alpha-ketoglutaric acid.

Myprotein’s AAKG is superior to many other forms of arginine as it is comprised of two arginine molecules attached to one alpha-ketoglutarate molecule.

The standard pre-workout dose for L-arginine is 3-6g. Taking more than 10g of arginine at once could result in gastrointestinal distress.

 

Please note that the labelling on this product is provided in English as a minimum. French, Italian, German, Spanish, Danish, Swedish and Finnish may also be present on a product by product basis.

First time I took AAKG, I put four scoops (4g) into my preworkout BCAAS's and Creatine mix. I felt a decent enough pump throughout my workout. I was meeting a bird later that day so although it wasn't an arm day, when I finished my session I figured that if bang out a few sets on Preacher curls. After about 10 reps I had an insane pump that lasted all day. Result

Goes Well With:

Vanity, Water and creatine. Do not mix with caffeinated products as they cancel each other out and become both ineffective

I supplement this 1hr before workout and straight afterwards, great pump combined with creatine ethyl ester. Noticed a big difference in size of biceps and triceps, great stuff.... also 5g before bed on empty stomach to promote GH levels and 5g first thing in the morning which gives me more energy throughout the day. I found taking this with only water is the most effective way for fast guaranteed absorption. No taste so easy to drink. Fantastic product. Will be buying again.

Goes Well With:

Just water!!!! Don't take with high sugar drinks.

Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate is a product that I've been meaning to try for ages. What made me take the plunge and order it was watching a top bodybuilder endorse it's benefits on his YouTube channel. Now I'm not an idiot, I know these guys get paid top dollar from sponsorship, so I Googled the product and from seeing all the benefits in black and white, I knew I had to try this stuff. As soon as my order arrived I mixed 1g with MP's Creatine Monohydrate (I always take creatine pre workout) and headed down to the gym. The pump I got was incredible, my energy levels were at least 25% greater than usual, I eeked out 2,3 even 4 more reps than usual.. don't take this product with food you want it in your system as quickly as possible for maximum benefits..I highly recommend AAK...

Creatine Monohydrate and water

"I dont know if its the AAKG or a placebo effect, but taking this 30-45 mins before my workout enables me do carry out 2 more reps with ease, and lift 2-3kg more... will write another review when I have finished the bag!"

hi I am not using arginine as one product. I am combining arginine with Beta Alanine and 200 mgrms of caffeine to make a preworkout solution. this is the cheapest way to make a preworkout drink. paying 50 euro for 30 servings of a branded preworkout or buying the ingredients that work and combining them and getting over 100 servings for what cost me 30 euro. unreal value.

water and dilute to give it a little flavour

Been using my proteins products for a while now and have made huge progress,staying lean but upping my weights massively, I'm already quite vascular but was just looking for a little bit more, found this product and did some research on it and honestly, one of the best products iv ever purchased. The amount of motivation I got just purely from seeing my veins bulging was unreal. I definitely suggest you give this product a try

Thought this product would take longer to take effect, however, it is instant. Have always had problems with vascularity but now I find my pump is a lot greater and have noticed an increase in veins in forearms, biceps, shoulders, chest and even abs, thanks myprotein, this is one for life!

Makes a huge different in your pump/vascularity. Since the first week I noticed a big difference in my fullness from the pump and now my veins are always solid! I reccomend 6-15g a day. Definitely no more than 15g. Take morning first thing, before the gym, and before bed.

Goes Well With:

Your pre-workout for extra pump. Breakfast shake and 2g with casein before bed.

This Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate works as expected. I take 4g about 30 minutes before a workout. It dissolves well with a slightly bitter taste. Just drink it in one gulp and the problem is gone. It does increase rep range (+1 or +2) and focus/energy throughout the sets. Maybe avoid taking it on leg days, as the increased blood flow to the lower body can sometimes cause headaches. Try it for yourself, but I found it caused no side effects apart from during squats and leg presses.

Supplements with unbelievable benefits and festive discounts which no other companies will provide.Vegetarian sources of proteins include legumes, nuts, seeds and fruits. Legumes, some of which are called pulses in certain parts of the world, have higher concentrations of amino acids and are more complete sources of protein than whole grains and cereals. Examples of vegetarian foods with protein concentrations greater than seven percent include soybeans, lentils, kidney beans, white beans, mung beans, chickpeas, cowpeas, lima beans, pigeon peas, lupines, wing beans, almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, pecans, walnuts, cotton seeds, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, sesame seeds, and sunflower seeds. I'm the authorise sponsor of my protein. You can checkout on my insta - kartin_shok. Using my referral code will give you amazing discount.Myprotein is undoubtedly the best brand available these days in terms of quality and value for money. Dont be fooled by fake users copying fake images of stamps at the end of their reviews and claiming to be authorised reviewers. there is no such thing as authorised reviewers. they have just copied and posted the same reviews again and again and again, desperateiy wanting to earn referral credits. Myprotein supplements are good after a workout is one of the best time to get protein into the body so that the protein can be delivered to your muscles, to begin healing the micro tears i.e very small tears in the muscle tissue, caused by intense contraction of the muscle during workout in the muscle.Because solid food takes more time to digest and to break down the protein and send it to the muscles, it can be best to take a protein shake immediately following a workout, since protein shakes only take about thirty minutes to reach the muscle after ingestion.we can see the advantage to taking a protein.Whey protein has become a favorite supplement for those seeking to put on muscle and enhance their physiques as well as improve their health. In order to decipher which protein is best for a particular need, typically one would use a specific gauge of some sort to determine which protein to use. I found no side effects after using it for a long time now. and hey dont forget to use my referral code for genuine discounts. Thank you already for using my code buddy. You're amazing. :)

I've only used this a couple of times so far but I've found it really gives my workout a boost. I always have cold hands and feet, even when I'm sweating during a workout and I found that this really helped with that and my circulation seemed improved even after working out. I was pleased this is unflavoured because I find every flavoured mix in any brand too synthetic and sweet tasting. It mixed with water really well and didn't really taste of anything.
