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.

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...Goes Well With: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.Goes Well With:water and dilute to give it a little flavour
It works and gives a great pump during exercise, muscles swell and with weights becomes easier to work with. Very good!!!Goes Well With:Water
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 tryGoes Well With:preworkout, water
I used this as pre work out... it gives a good pump. In the evening I get headache after having this Goes Well With:Water
Excellent to add to my preworkout mix. Feel the difference compared to my previous of the shelf pre.
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!Goes Well With:Creatine
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.
I have beem using this product couple monts and I have to say, this one gives a good pump to the gym. Feel more energized and can focus more to lifting. Also, I sleep much better and feel fresh at the morning.
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.Goes Well With:water
perfect for preworkout and in the morning for make up GH level
My performance has improved greatly since I started using it.Goes Well With:Creatine
Bit too early to tell yet but from initial use this seems a good product as a great price...
Mixes easily, tasteless and works very well. Much cheaper than the equivalent product I was using previously. Highly recommended.
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.Goes Well With:Water
Tasteless and mixes veeery good. I am pleased!
Insane product stayed pumped for hours after my workout Goes Well With:Water
To early to tell bout results but definitely gives more vascilarity when working out
