The product is intended for people exercising recreationally and for professional athletes. It contains L-arginine in a highly bioavailable form – alpha-ketoglutarate (AKG), formed by coupling L-arginine with alpha-ketoglutarate – an intermediate metabolite of the Krebs cycle – metabolic pathway leading to the production of energy substrate for working muscles – ATP molecules.
L-arginine is an endogenous amino acid, naturally produced by the human body. L-arginine in the body is involved in many metabolic processes is used, among others in the synthesis of creatine and nitric oxide (NO). Nitric oxide causes an increase in the lumen of blood vessels by loosening their smooth muscles and reducing the “stickiness” of the vascular walls, thereby increasing the supply of oxygen and nutrients to working muscles. During a large physical effort, the natural production of L-arginine may be insufficient and should be supplemented from the outside, therefore supplementation with this amino acid recommended for people exercising recreationally and professional athletes.
