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.

Mixes easily, tasteless and works very well. Much cheaper than the equivalent product I was using previously. Highly recommended.
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.Goes Well With:Water
Excellent to add to my preworkout mix. Feel the difference compared to my previous of the shelf pre.
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
Tasteless and mixes veeery good. I am pleased!
Insane product stayed pumped for hours after my workout Goes Well With:Water
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
To early to tell bout results but definitely gives more vascilarity when working out
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.Goes Well With:Impact Protein Powder
Great stuff. Really powers me through a work out. Goes Well With:Water
Very good product. Felt the ppump straight awayGoes Well With:Pre workout shake
I really like this product. I take it before my workouts, gives a great pump. It's price is ideal for everyone, not so expensive. I recommend it to everyone.Goes Well With:water
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
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 tryGoes Well With:preworkout, water
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 outGoes 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
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.
I was very sceptical whether this product would have any effect on me. I have ordered 250grams to give it a try and I took two 5 gram scoops before gym. I have never experienced such a great pump, my muscles were so tensed after few reps. I looked significantly bigger and felt more confident. I could literally feel my muscles growing. Highly recommend this product, I take it with Citruline Malate also two 5 gram scoops.
it have great price and it is doing right job Great pruduct
Used this in the 3 weeks leading upto a ccontest to help with pumps in the gym and vascularity during the contest! It works a treat and I will always use it in this way. Its alsi a good addition to your creatine and beta alanine!Goes Well With:Creatine
I take this to lower my colesterol as it was suggested by my doctor and it seems to work
Taste as one can imagine is very chalky by it'self but mixing it with a protein shake is perfect. Great pump, gives me that ego beast I need in the gym to get maximum performance.Goes Well With:Protein Shakes
Important for hard trainers and to detox body. I take it in the morning and late evening and i feel effect in 15 minutes.
Very quick delivery, good price so overall a happy customer.
I use this in a self made pre-work out drink and I mix it with several over mp products and its really good mixes really well must be the best performing AAKG product I've used.Goes Well With:tourine, aminos, glutamine
Not bad pumps off this stuff. It has to be taken on a very empty stomach for max results. Tastes nasy but I did not buy it for taste. Pump can last up to an hour after a good workout. Not a bad product!Goes Well With:Caffine & water
Well I have tried it and for the first 3-4 days I didn't feel anything special. But after that the feeling is great. I can probably do +1 or +2 repsets , the venis are much more big and visible, the pump is incredible. You can feel how muscles are more hard and full. I have trided also other NO products and found the same result only with one that is in tablets but it is 2x more expensive. I would recomend this product. I use it 3-4g twice a day.In the morning on empty stomach and 40 minutes before workout on empty stomach. Goes Well With:Creatine Monohydrate
Excellent product,and service provided by My protein. Thank you
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
Taste and mixability Arginine on Alpha Ketoglutarate are fine and it pumps beyond my expectation, I take it twice per day, one just before heading to the gym with EEC, and another one with the L-Glutamate just before Sleep to encourage my body release more GH. Overall an awesome product - save your money on ON formula and get this one! recommended Goes Well With:L-glutamin and EEC
Too early to see any effects after having Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate.
I am really satisfied with this Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate. It is doing what it should do.
I take this product recently religiously as I'm training for a competition. I do love it as it gives me an awesome pump in the gym with crazy vascularity! I highly recommend this product for that pump in the gym and to help achieve that vascularity that you are looking for! Goes Well With:L carnitine
Hi everyone. Ive been using impact whey + L-leucine for couple of months now and recently got Arginine and creatine Mono. With all the info out there many people say different doses. im confused can someone help. i train mornings around 9am so have breakfast at 7am. arginine states take 1st serving in the morning and then 45mins before training. and creatine mono just states twice daily. so should these be taken with no food or ok with breakfast. when would i need the 2nd dose of arginine if i take pre training. it may be me over thinking it but i know supplements to get optimal results is all about timing. dont want to waste all my hard work and money. Hope to hear asap
"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!"
"use with listed products plus oj and sugar for pre-workout shake becaus ei got fed up with s**t products on the market. i found the taste really bitter, but drinkable. u just gotta neck it. good pumps, nothing outrageous but i think its worth it since it gives u a btr workout. culd do with caps tho!"
"just got my first pouch yesterday after reading the many benefits, just finished an awesome arm workout, felt great, using recomended dose in my pre-workout, creatine, glutamine, bcaa, AAKG-taurine- this is a top class pre-workout much cheaper then buying a ready made one and alot better then any of the top brands i have used! great price, products & delivery again from HERMES!!!!!!! CLASS"
"I'd been using this for quite a while and then stopped for a bit - I hadnt realised quite what affect it has!\nWhen it says 'increases blood flow/vascularity/pumps' - it actually does - to EVERYWHERE, if you get my drift !! \n\nSo in short guys - you should see a difference in the gym and the boudoir!!\n"
"this product works day 2 from when you start using it. Its a perfect product that does give you a gd pump after a nice workout. But id advise you not to take it before a Cardiovascular exercise, especially running you wont be able to move your legs afterwards. Take it after. \nOther than that, it great :) ordered my second pouch yesterday just waiting for it to arrive :)"
"Ok, just finished a chest and arms session and i could honestly not lift another thing, i was pumped to the max."
"I find that it gives me a good pump not only in the gym but through the day too. I do take an extra dosage at night, 30 mins before my shake before bed. I find it gives me that lil more of an edge.. Thanks MP i find this a great supplement to get a all round greater pump. \n\nJames."
"Does what it says on the tin again - MP - basic product, honest, no scifi bullshit, great price."
"this stuff seems OK! I didn't get mental pumps like I was expecting, I managed to work out as hard as I usually do But the pump I got was better & lasted longer! SO to sum up: it wont make you get a pump just from doing a 5kg bicep curl but the pump you get from your normal workout will be better!! (THIS IS FROM A SCEPTIC TOO) I'm pretty sure it is not just placebo effect."
"Hi,\n Just bought some AAKG first time, so how is best to take it, with water, or something else and how much liquid?\n Thanks Andrew"
"I am a Diabetic(type 1-Insulin dependant), does anyone know if i can take this supplement or not? cheeeers"
It works for pumps and enery but you could possibly benefit ffom cycling it - dont over-do the dosage - i couldnt bi-curl as it was too painful and had to separate tri and bi workouts
"Ive been taking this for couple of days now, tried upto 5 grams in the morning, which is 45 mins before my workout. first day i didnt notice any difference, 2nd day i noticed that i got pumped slightly quicker than normal. Is this just how my body reacts to it, or im i doing something wrong?"
