Increases Nutrient Delivery to the Muscles!
The transport of amino acids through the blood to your muscles is controlled by blood flow. Nitric Oxide, or NO, widens blood vessels which results in increased blood flow which means faster amino acid delivery to the muscles. Training in itself increases blood flow – the “pump” and causes an increase in NO production. This increased blood flow is thought to be involved in the increase in post workout protein synthesis.
Arginine – a NO precursor, increases NO production resulting in greater blood flow, which allows faster nutrient delivery (i.e. amino acids) to the muscles. Additionally, Arginine is involved in the proper functioning of the immune system, hormone secretion and wound healing.
Alpha-ketoglutaric acid is part of the process of amino acid formation, it also plays a critical role in the Kreb’s energy cycle and is a transporter of nitrogen and ammonia.
Combining the benefits of arginine and alpha-ketoglutaric acid gives AAGK Powder by Primaforce a strong advantage over standard L-arginine.
