  • Maximum-Strength L-Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate

  • Supports physical energy and faster muscle recovery

  • Supports healthy blood flow for optimal delivery of oxygen and nutrients to cells

Alpha-ketoglutarate, an amino acid compound used for energy metabolism, accelerates absorption of L-arginine. You'll enjoy steadier energy levels with the more efficient exchange of cell nutrients and wastes and speedier delivery of oxygen to the tissues. Supplementing with Arginine AKG also promotes faster muscle recovery after exercise and may support greater gains in anaerobic power when combined with a resistance training program.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big difference Compared to my results and workouts prior to using this product, it is a big difference. Not only do I recover quicker, but I also get more out of my workouts and have a very defined muscle physique that Ive never had before. Akg LArginine delivers where it promises. This is an important supplement in my stack and I make sure to never run out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use a scoop of Swanson's awesome AKG Arginine Powder in my morning Whey Protein Cocktail (also containing Spirulina and other Aminos) with excellent results for muscle building, strength, and tone. Improvement is quite noticeable! I've used Arginine with Ornithine, Lysine, Glutamine, and Glycine to my total satisfaction since the 1970s. In the afternoon or evening, I'm not making another one of my Super Protein Cocktails, so I find it convenient and productive to take about 3 of these 1,000 mg. Arginine AKG capsules. I always take 4 of the 500 mg. L-Ornithine capsules with my Arginine. I also find it very productive to take 3 or 4 of these 1,000 mg. Arginine AKG caps, along with my 4 L-Ornithine 500 mg. caps, IMMEDIATELY AFTER working out. Give that a try. . . . Try it; you'll like it. Depending on what my routine was during the day, I may take this same combination at bedtime for muscle regeneration while I sleep. You can read a lot about that technique. Whatever your purpose or dosage, and don't forget heart health, it is my opinion that you will find this Swanson Arginine AKG 1,000 mg. capsule an Excellent and Productive Product.
