Product Overview

Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate (AAKG) is a salt of the amino acid arginine and alpha-ketoglutaric acid and plays an important role in nitric oxide (NO) activity and blood flow. Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate (AAKG) is a cell volumiser which leads to greater delivery of nutrients into the muscles. For this reason, it can be a powerful supplement in aiding physiological performance and supporting muscle recovery in a range of sporting activities*.

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

AAKG can be taken at 3 times throughout the day with a combined dose total of 15-18g, to help maintain elevated arginine levels. 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.

Key Benefits

  • Promotes Nitric Oxide (NO) production*
  • Supports muscle growth and recovery*
  • Recommended for a number of sports

Suggested Use

Add your preferred amount of water or fruit juice into our shaker. Then add 1g, shake and consume. Use 1-2 times daily.

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

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.

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!

I've only used this a few times, but took a very small amount per instructions (1 gram) at first. Will likely try larger doses as I progress (5 grams or maybe eventually 10?). It's meant to help with non-aerobic exercises - increasing your recovery and push past your typical failure zone. Perhaps if I was a body-builder, this would have a more pronounced effect...? I suggest using it 30min/1 hour before your chest/arms day and use your protein powder after workout. I did notice that my post-workout "pump" lasted longer than normal, and apparently my blood vessels were slightly dilated to increase blood flow and lower blood pressure (can't verify that?) It could have been placebo effect, but will keep trying it maybe twice a week? Do check the warnings; do your research. This is not to be taken on a daily basis, nor for extended periods of time. I'd read that it has also been used to treat erectile dysfunction. Didn't notice any changes in the wedding tackle, but would not mind that as a side-effect.

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...

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 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.

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

Best product from MP so far. Tasteless and mixed well. Take 2/3g pre workout and the pump is ridiculous! (In a good way) I've put a little over half an inch onto my arms and an inch on my chest, and half an inch on my legs with the only thing in my lifestyle changing is the addition of this product. Highly recommend and will buy again when I run out

Goes Well With:

Liquid or if you're in a rush then take the powder dry!

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
