Olympian Labs A-AKG 90 Grams Powder (30 servings)


Product Label

  • Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate
  • Nitric Oxide (NO) Inducer and Growth Hormone (GH) Releaser.
  • Arginine is an amino acid that enhances muscle synthesis and recovery. Arginine is an effective growth hormone releaser and a precursor to nitric oxide (NO) synthesis. The potential benefits of an increased GH level include reduction in body fat, improved healing and recovery, and increased muscle mass. The potential benefits of increased NO levels include increased circulation to working muscles, increased nutrient uptake and protein synthesis, and improved male erectile performance.**
  • Alpha-Ketoglutarate (AKG) combines with ammonia, generated by intense muscle activity, to create glutamine, an amino acid important for energy fuel and muscle recovery.
  • Arginine is a nonessential amino acid that influences several metabolic factors that are important to athletes. Arginine was most famous for its role in stimulating the release of human GH (somatotropin)**
  • An additional function of Arginine AKG is it srole as a precursor in creatine production. Daily ingestion of Arginine AKG has been shown to increase the bodys creatine stores. This may lead to improvements in performance for slower athletes.**
  • Supplementing with Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate (A-AKG) appears to increase nitric oxide (NO) levels. NO is a key molecule used by your body to transport oxygen, increase blood flow, and deliver nutrients to skeletal muscle.**
  • The more NO, the bigger the pump, and the bigger the muscle will become.**
  • A-AKG helps increase workout performance, which will only result in increased muscle mass. So, if youre interested in optimizing your workouts to obtain the body you want, look no further.**
  • No other nutritional supplement can sustain your workout like A-AKG Powder.**

      For the price of this product, You can't go wrong! It does the job! I had great pumps with this product. To enhance this supplement, I'd mix it with some kind of juice with lots of vitamin C to make the NO last longer...and it works! So before you work out, just put 1 scoop of this stuff in some juice and you're ready to go!

        Comments about Olympian Labs A-Akg - 90 Grams Powder:

        My store manager recommended this product as a supplemental treatment for Peripheral Neuropathy. I mix it w/4oz. diet soda each morning along with my regular meds. The tingling and sensation does subside within 10-15 minutes. It's not a cure, but it certainly mitigates the pain. My only complaint is that it doesn't come in larger bottles! I'm not a body builder, or exerciser.

                      I started taking this about a month ago and could tell a difference in my work out by the second week of using it. I felt a really good pump from it and my muscles always felt pumped up. My veins also bulged out alot more after I started taking this. I would recommend it to everyone. It cost nearly nothing and does exactly what it says.

                          This product is a fantastic deal for the price. Alone it will give you some decent pumps and possibly weight loss and vascularity. Mix it with CAKG by olympian and you have a cheap, powerful combo. Add it to Jack3d and the results are insane.

                          Great Pumps for a great price but if you take it straight its awful. If your protein shake is a weak flavor like a vanilla or banana then you may wanna avoid mixing it with this but a stronger flavor will hide the taste alot

                              I am not one to write reviews but when I am satisfied with the product I will def speak my opinion, especially when I got it from a great place like vitamin shoppe. As far as the arginine goes, it's awesome. When you mix it with Olympian Labs C-AKG (Creatine), it is basically your own pre-workout concoction like jack3d and NO Explode minus all of the bad fillers and crazy energy and caffeine. Drink a second serving during your workout and your pumps are incredible. The price is ridiculously cheap for a great product!!!

                                  I have been using this product for well over a year. Great results. Aids in weight loss. Very few health stores offer this product, I am so impressed with it that I will go to great lengths to find the nearest Vitamin Shoppe to pick up a new supply. Greatly improves performance with cardio workout and weight training. I noticed immediate improvement in the gym. One of the best things about it is that it has almost no taste compared to most L-Arginine products which taste like sweaty feet. I highly recommend trying this product

                                          This stuff works great, I should give it 5 stars, but it's unflavored and does not taste good at all by itself. I tried drinking it straight mixed with just water. It was hard to get down. It's probably best if you mix it in with something else like juice. Otherwise, decent results.
