Description

AAKG Revolution™ is our raw, unflavored arginine alpha keto glutarate. L-Arginine is a semi-essential amino acid and is a chemical precursor to nitric oxide (a blood vessel-widening agent). This enlargement of blood vessels helps deliver more of the much needed oxygen rich blood and nutrients to working muscles and may assist in:

• Improvements in blood flow leading to a bigger “pump.”
• Increasing muscle mass
• Reducing body fat
• Stimulating muscle protein synthesis
• Supporting cardiovascular health

The proof is in the pudding with arginine supplementation….a 2010 study conducted by Bailey et al. discovered supplemental arginine for 3 days was able to enhance nitric oxide production and decrease oxygen consumption (7%) while improving time to exhaustion by 25% in otherwise healthy men. AAKG Revolution™ is a perfect addition to any pre-workout formula if you’re looking for that muscle-volumizing pump.

Ingredient Profile

L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate

L-Arginine is a semi-essential amino acid and is a chemical precursor to nitric oxide (a blood vessel-widening agent).

  • When Arginine AKG enters the body it stimulates nitric oxide pathways. This process vasodilates (enlarges) blood vessels and helps deliver more of the much needed oxygen rich blood and nutrients to working muscles in order to achieve the pump and ultimately muscle growth.
  •  Arginine AKG also triggers the body to make protein and has been studied for healing wounds, bodybuilding, and preventing tissue degradation in people with critical illnesses.
  • A 2010 study conducted by Bailey et al. discovered supplemental arginine for 3 days was able to enhance nitric oxide production and decrease oxygen consumption (7%) while improving time to exhaustion by 25% in otherwise healthy men.
FAQs

Q: What is the best way to take AAKG Revolution?
A: As a dietary supplement, mix one scoop (3 grams) with your favorite beverage. For optimal results, use 15min prior to training.

Q: I know arginine increases nitric oxide production but what does NO actually do in the body?
A: Nitric oxide has a vasodilatory effect on the blood vessels/veins; meaning NO enlarges them. This vasodilation delivers more oxygen rich blood and nutrients to the working muscles and may improve performance.

Q: What other MuscleSport raw products do you recommend stacking with AAKG Revolution?
A: To promote optimal vasodilation and achieve an unreal pump we recommend stacking AAKG Revolution with citrulline malate, agmatime sulfate, nitrosigine, and GlycoCarn.
