Olimp AAKG 1250 Extreme contains pure arginine alphaketoglutarate (AAKG), that is the compound of the amino acid argininewith a glutaric acid salt, which increases the bioavailability of arginine. The comfortable powdered form makes it possible to adjust the dosage to your individual needs. The active components efficiently increase the production of nitric oxide (NO) in the organism, that way dilating blood vessels and enhancing the transport of blood and nutrients to muscles.
L-Arginine is an endogenous amino acid responsible for the right course of many processes in the human organism. It is one of the substrates necessary for the synthesis of, for example, nitric oxide, urea, ornithine, creatine, glutamate, and proline.
Enhances physical capacity – L-arginine plays an important role in the formation of nitric oxide, which helps to relax smooth muscles in blood vessels, that way increasing the lumen of blood vessels. The process, called vasodilation, is very desirable during physical activity, when muscles need to be provided with the right amount of oxygen and nutrients.
Blood can flow faster and easier through dilated blood vessels, that way reducing strain on the heart and saving energy. Tests have confirmed multiple times that the use of L-arginine efficiently increases physical capacity during training. Thanks to a better oxygen supply, the level of lactic acid in muscles decreases, that is a substance responsible for the feeling of tiredness and “burnout” in muscles.
Anabolic properties – Tests on mice have demonstrated that a diet poor in L-arginine inhibits the anabolic activity of androgens and growth hormone. Tests on people, on the other hand, have shown that supplementing the amino acid increases the level of growth hormone and insulin.
Growth hormone is responsible, among other things, for an increase in strength, as well as boosted synthesis of muscle proteins and collagen, which is responsible for the right structure of tendons and ligaments. As an anabolic hormone, insulin is responsible for, among other things, providing cells with nutrients. Both hormones affect muscle cells and exhibit powerful anabolic properties.
Regeneration – easy blood flow in tissues also supports regeneration processes. Free oxygen radicals formed excessively during workout reduce workout capacity. Increased blood flow, on the other hand, helps to reduce deposited metabolites and enables a faster comeback to the challenges of the training programme.
Another proven effect of L-arginine supplementation with carbohydrates are increased glycogen levels in muscles. What is more, L-arginine enhances wound healing and supports the organism’s immunity by affecting the activity of the thymus, where the cells of the immune system mature.
Health-promoting properties – Thanks to a number of mechanisms, arginine has a pleiotropic effect on the human organism, which means that its supplementation can be helpful not only for physically active people. Among the effects of the amino acid are: reducing blood pressure and enhancing the functioning of capillaries, as well as increasing insulin sensitivity and reducing blood glucose levels, which is why it is recommended for people with diabetes. Arginine also increases blood flow in the brain, that way exerting a positive effect on cognitive functions and protecting the organ.
To sum up, Olimp AAKG 1250 Extreme is a highly assimilable form of L-arginine, which supports the organism’s capacity. By stimulating NO production, it makes the flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients more efficient. Moreover, it indirectly supports the process of muscle mass development and regeneration in the organism. is a highly assimilable form of L-arginine, which supports the organism’s capacity.

Before training use higher doses, around 1 g per kilogram of bodyweight for the most sensible effect. The portion before sexual activity may also be a bit higher, about 3-4 capsules. Before sleep and after training you may apply to the recommended doses of 1-2 capsules, which should work effectively.
Olimp is a Polish company offering dietary supplements and supplements for athletes that are made of carefully selected and safe for health ingredients.

Arginine alpha-ketoglutarate (AAKG) is a salt glutaric acid and arginine. The presence of these compounds results in intensification of the operation of each of them. Arginine alpha-ketoglutarate improves the bioavailability by stimulating the decomposition to CO2 and H2O, which means that it becomes a precursor in the synthesis of nitric oxide. It has anti-catabolic properties enhancing anabolism. Enhances the functioning of the insulin hormone, insulin-mimetics IGF-1) and somatotropin growth hormone.
AAKG is part of the pre-workout supplements (improving muscle blood flow and increasing the exercise capacity (strength and endurance)), as well as improves the recovery process after training. Most often used to increase the synthesis of nitric oxide (supplements pre- and post-workout), increasing muscle blood flow and regeneration. Particularly valued by the representatives of power sports, power and strength sports and strength athletics. Used very often in the rehabilitation of sports injuries.
Arginine is an exogenous amino acid, it is a component of dietary proteins, not always synthesized in the human body in necessary quantity, so it is necessary to deliver it in the form of synthetics. It takes part in the biosynthesis agmatine, creatine and nitrogen oxides. The use of supplements containing arginine before workout increases the exercise capacity (strength, endurance). Used after considerable effort intensifies the transfer of energy and building compounds and intensifies the process of recovery. Used at bedtime in combination with lysine and ornithine enhances the synthesis of growth hormone. takes part in the intrasystemic synthesis of creatine. Arginine (as a precursor of ornithine) is involved in the urea cycle, increases the flow of blood in the circulatory system, increases sexual potency (in a short time after application). It affects the body's immunity preventing infections, and lowers blood pressure. In supplements – usually as alpha-ketoglutarate.
