What is L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate
L-Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate is a dietary supplement consisting of the amino acid arginine -- a building block of protein -- and alpha-ketoglurate, a compound that breaks down sugars and amino acids. Both constituents of AAKG have different roles and may offer benefits, but more research is needed to know for sure. On rare occasions, taking AAKG may cause side effects, so get your doctor's permission before taking it.
How L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate Works
Alpha-KetoGlutarate is best known as the energy-generating intermediate in the Krebs cycle (a.k.a Citric Acid Cycle). One of the ways in which AKG is produced through a chemical reaction with glutamate (a process called transamination). Glutamate is also a precursor to the amino acid L-Glutamine which is required in vast amounts by people who regularly engage in physical activity. When glutamine levels are low, the body catabolizes itself and begins to break down its own muscle in order to replenish the depleted glutamine. AKG can help stave off catabolism by enabling the body to produce more glutamine.
Similar to Arginine, AKG is also a carrier of excess nitrogen waste. It also plays a part in the detoxification of ammonia (which is incredibly toxic to cells in high levels) and has shown antioxidant properties.
AAKG is thought to yield better absorption than regular L-Arginine due to the increased stability contributed by the AKG portion of AAKG. This would theoretically enhance Nitric Oxide production and offer all the benefits of Arginine, but to much greater effect.
Health Benefits of L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate
Here Looking at some key findings of the health benefits of L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate as the following:
May Improve Anaerobic Exercise
AAKG may boost athletic performance, but evidence from large studies is lacking. The journal Nutrition published two small double-blinded studies in its September 2006 issue that showed positive results. The study participants were healthy men between the ages of 30 and 50. Researchers found that supplementing with AAKG increased arginine levels and beneficially influenced peak power output on wingate and bench press tests. Both of these are anaerobic exercises, which refers to short-duration, high-intensity movements common in nonendurance sports such as bodybuilding and sprinting. AAKG has not been shown to have benefits for endurance exercise.
Potential Anti-Cancer Activity
Researchers evaluated the anti-cancer properties of alpha-ketoglutarate and published the results in the May 2012 issue of the Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology. The authors explain that previous studies show alpha-ketoglutarate prevents tumor growth in cells that have been deprived of oxygen, a state known as hypoxia. Researchers set out to determine whether it had the same effects in cells that had normal oxygen levels. They found that alpha-ketoglutarate successfully prevented colon cancer from spreading to cells under normal oxygen conditions.
However, this study was done in a lab using cultured cancer cells. More research is needed to know whether it offers the same cancer-fighting benefits for people.
Influences Blood Pressure
People take AAKG because arginine increases nitric oxide, a signaling molecule your body produces that causes blood vessels to expand. This property may offer benefits for blood pressure. Researchers conducting a small study found that taking arginine temporarily lowered blood pressure in people with Type 2 diabetes and mild hypertension. The authors suggest the effect is due to arginine increasing the amount of nitric oxide in the blood vessels. The study was published in the October 2002 issue of the Journal of the American College of Nutrition.
L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate Side Effects
The study published in the Nutrition journal concluded that AAKG is well-tolerated and reported no serious side effects or abnormalities. However, the journal Human and Experimental Toxicology reported three cases where AAKG is linked to adverse effects requiring hospitalization. The report, published in May 2009, did not state whether high dosages were involved. You may need to avoid taking arginine supplements if you're prone to cold sores, or have genital herpes, as the virus uses arginine to replicate. L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate Dosage
The typically recommended dosage for L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate is 2.6 grams, taken as many as three times per day. It is considered safe for adults when utilized properly, and it is not known to have any significant side effects. There are no known supplement or food interactions with this product.
