Arginine Alpha-ketoglutarate(AKG) is the salt of arginine bonded to alpha-ketoglutaric acid. The AKG is very important for the efficient metabolism of certain amino acids and for the accommodation of production of energy.

Extra Information for the curious mind:

Arginine and AAKG have similar effects however AAKG is more effective than Arginine and more bioavailable, meaning the body absorbs AAKG more effectively.

Arginine and NO booster Since arginine is one of the building blocks for Nitric Oxide it is easy to deduce that an intake of extra arginine will increase the concentration of Nitric Oxide in the body. An interesting study that has been done actually showed that the best Nitric Oxide boosters consist of a combination of Arginine and Citrulline1. This study shows that the increase in blood flow was higher for the group that had a combination of both Arginine and Citrulline instead of just one or the other.
Arginine and the heart Arginine may help improve the blood flow due to it being a precursor for Nitric Oxide. This improved blood flow may improve the symptoms of clogged arteries, angina and coronary artery disease2. This is however not meant to substitute any medicine that is being taken for a severe case of any of those conditions.
