AAKG (Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate) is a salt of arginine and
alpha-ketoglutaric acid, both of which are precursors to nitric oxide
(NO) production. Additionally, arginine is also involved in hormone
secretion, wound healing, and immune system functioning, while
alpha-ketoglutaric acid plays a vital role as an intermediate in the
citric acid (TCA) cycle, where it participates in the formation of amino
acids, and acts as a nitrogen/ammonia transporter. AAKG possesses clear
advantages over standard L-arginine.
