For the first time on the market, the top quality AAKG in an staggeringly high, unprecedented dose of 1250 mg in one capsule of Mega Caps. Olimp AAKG Extreme in form of a well-assimilable arginine alpha-ketoglutarate (AAKG) supplements the diet with L-arginine. Arginine is a food ingredient from which many important biologically-active substances in the body are made, e.g. nitric oxide (NO). Moreover, arginine acts as a provider of the formamidine group in the biosynthesis of creatine.

Recommended usage

During physical effort - 1 capsule before and after training and/or before sleep. For persons who strive to maintain sexual efficiency - 1-2 capsules before the sexual activity.

Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet. Keep out of reach of children. A varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle are recommended.

Arginine alpha ketoglutarate (AAKG) 1250 mg 2500 mg
1) Arginine Improves Muscle Health

A daily intake of L-arginine for 45 days reduced muscle fatigue and increased athletic performance in 56 male soccer players 

In 8 healthy subjects, L-arginine supplementation before exercise improved strength and exercise capacity by reducing blood levels of lactate and ammonia. Both are breakdown products associated with muscle fatigue 

Long-term (3-week) L-arginine supplementation in 16 healthy males reduced blood lactate levels and oxygen consumption during exercise 

L-arginine supplementation for 6 months in 11 postmenopausal women also improved muscle force and power

2) Arginine Is Beneficial for Diabetes
Diabetes is associated with low levels of arginine and blood vessel dysfunction. Several animal studies indicate that supplementation with L-arginine may be an effective way to improve blood vessel function in diabetes 

Acute injection of L-arginine increases the levels of insulin in blood. This reduces the amount of glucose released from the liver

Long-term (21- to 31-day) oral intake of L-arginine in 26 patients improved insulin sensitivity, blood vessel function, and reduced blood glucose levels in patients with type 2 diabetes 

3) Arginine Improves Immune Function in Cancer
In a controlled trial of patients with advanced breast cancer, L-arginine intake for 3 days (before chemotherapy) reduced the suppression of the immune system caused by chemotherap

Oral intake of L-arginine in 13 healthy individuals increased the levels and activity of immune cells involved in combating tumor growth (C56+, natural killer cells, lymphocyte-activated killer cells)

In human cells and mice, L-arginine supplementation increased survival and anti-tumor activity of immune cells

4) Arginine Increases Exercise Capacity in Patients with Heart Disease
L-arginine supplementation improved the capacity for exercise in 16 elderly individuals with heart disease.

In 22 individuals with stable angina pectoris and healed heart attack, oral L-arginine taken for 3 days improved exercise workload by increasing oxygen availability during physical activity 

5) Arginine Accelerates Recovery from Wound Injuries
In 36 healthy humans, arginine supplementation for 2 weeks enhanced wound healing and improved immune responses 

In guinea pigs, L-arginine ingestion improved immunity and survival from burn injuries 

In mice models, L-arginine reduced injury to the airway passage caused due to allergic inflammation 

7) Arginine May Improve Blood Vessel Health
A meta-analysis showed that L-arginine can reduce blood pressure in adults with high blood pressure 

Arginine supplementation reduced the increased reactivity of blood cells involved in clotting (platelets) in adults with high cholesterol levels. It also reduced blood clotting 

In rabbits, supplementing with arginine benefits atherosclerotic conditions by widening blood vessels, thinning vessel walls, and inhibiting the buildup of fat 

Arginine supplementation in 28 healthy men for 45 days reduced blood sugar and fat levels 

However, a meta-analysis of 927 showed no effect of arginine supplementation (9 g/day for 30 days to 3 months) in patients with acute heart attacks 

Also, arginine did not improve nitric oxide availability in patients with heart disease

8) Arginine Reduces Fat
Long-term use of L-arginine in addition to diet and exercise improved glucose and insulin levels. It also decreased belly fat in overweight adults with type 2 diabetes 

In pigs, dietary supplementation with L-arginine reduced fat deposits and promoted muscle gain throughout the body

9) Arginine Reduces Pain in Disorders of the Digestive Tract
Oral L-arginine supplementation considerably reduces the frequency and intensity of chest pain attacks and the use of painkillers in 8 patients with movement disorders of the gut 

In rats, L-arginine accelerated ulcer healing by increasing blood flow and forming new blood vessels

10) Arginine Helps Infertility and Sexual Dysfunction
L-arginine given for 6 weeks to 29 men improved erectile dysfunction in 31% of them

Supplementation with oral L-arginine in 34 women unresponsive to in vitro fertilization (IVF) increased pregnancy rates.This effect occured by improving ovarian response and the environment of the uterus

In goat sperm cells, L-arginine increased sperm vitality through increased production of nitric oxide. This effect may be beneficial for increasing fertility 

11) Arginine Improves Cognitive Function in Dementia
L-arginine (1.6 g/day) intake increased intellectual function in elderly patients with dementia 

12) Arginine Fights Aging
Aging is associated with reduced nitric oxide levels. Arginine supplementation may help to maintain normal nitric oxide levels to counterbalance the aging process
