Where it comes from

Arginine Alpha-ketoglutarate (also known as AAKG and arginine) is a nonessential amino acid that’s necessary when it comes to making nitric oxide in the liver. “Both AAKG and nitric oxide amplify the beneficial muscle-building effects of exercising and nutritional supplements,” explains registered dietitian and American Dietetic Association spokesperson Jim White.



What it’ll do for you

Arginine Alpha-ketoglutarate is used to treat kidney disease, intestinal and stomach disorders, liver problems and cataracts. It is also used to increase sexual energy, and for the prevention and treatment of erectile dysfunction disorder and sterility in men. Some people take alpha-ketoglutarate to improve peak athletic performance because it helps the liver break down by-products of muscle exercise such as ammonia. Athletes believe AAKG supplements help them exercise longer with less pain and stiffness, and build up more lean body mass “Evidence also shows that L-arginine stimulates protein synthesis, which helps the body build muscles, and increase their size, strength and endurance,” says White. It has been found that, by taking 10 to 15 grams of AAKG per day, the body’s insulin level increases by 20 to 30 percent, which in turn, theoretically increases strength gains and muscle growth. How? L-argnine increases nitric oxide production in blood vessels, increasing their diameter. This increases blood flow without raising blood pressure. When blood vessels dilate, more blood reaches the muscles and tissues and provides a larger amount of carbohydrates, proteins and various muscle-building hormones. “Several studies found that the use of arginine alpha-ketoglutarate by bodybuilders promoted larger and longer lasting pumps,” White explains. “The muscles were tighter and stronger. Some of the bodybuilders reported feeling ‘pumped’ all day long.”



Suggested intake

“Red meat is rich in L-Arginine, so consuming lean cuts of beef do provide increased protein, but this does not have the same effect as taking a supplement with Arginine,” explains White. “Most supplements are manufactured with a time release component that provides the nutrient for a period of time. Also, in order to reap the same amount of nutrients from a supplement, one would have to consume large amounts of food. It is more efficient to use a supplement.” As a supplement, AAKG is sold in a tablets, pills or powder. The suggested dosage is two or three tablets once or twice a day on an empty stomach, preferably in the morning and at least 30 minutes before workouts. In powder form, the recommended dose ranges from 1500 milligrams to 3500 milligrams. Many experts believe it is safe—and actually more beneficial—to mix AAKG powder with creatine-based products.



Associated risks/scrutiny

So far, research is inconclusive on the adverse side effects of this product and it appears to be safe for most adults. In an eight-week study, subjects reported no abnormal side effects from taking about four grams per day of AAKG. However, a 2009 paper reported three patients who were admitted to the emergency room with very negative effects including dizziness, vomiting and loss of consciousness. AAKG is not recommended for continuous, high-level use for more than 60 days. AAKG is a natural blood thinner so people taking blood thinners should use with caution. Some doctors believe that people with any form of the herpes virus (cold sores or genital herpes) should not consume AAKG as it may induce virus symptoms.



RECOMMENDATION

Recommended use: 5 grams (1 scoop) before training, 2.5 grams (1/2 scoop) after training. On training days 1/2 scoop before bedtime. Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet. A varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle are recommended.

CREATINE MONOHYDRATE 550g

Creatine is a substance that is found naturally in muscle cells. It helps your muscles produce energy during heavy lifting or high-intensity exercise. Taking creatine as a supplement is very popular among athletes and bodybuilders in order to gain muscle, enhance strength and improve exercise performance. Chemically speaking, it shares many similarities with amino acids. Your body can produce it from the amino acids glycine and arginine. Several factors affect your body's creatine stores, including meat intake, exercise, amount of muscle mass and levels of hormones like testosterone and IGF-1. About 95% of your body's creatine is stored in muscles in the form of phosphocreatine. The other 5% is found in your brain, kidneys and liver.

They are an inseparable element for the synthesis of proteins, and over 30% of our muscles are made up of BCAAs. L-GLUTAMINE L-glutamine is an organic chemical compound from the group of endogenous amino acids. It is characterized by many biological functions, as a nitrogen transporter or a precursor to the synthesis of glutathione and nucleotides. It is one of the substrates in the process of gluconeogenesis.

BOOGIEMAN SHOT 100ml

Boogieman Shot stimulates more training - Pre-workouts are a group of supplements that are probably the most popular among customers. Producers wanting to offer something new and surprising, enrich their formula with various ingredients with a psychostimulating effect. For many, this stimulation is the determinant of the actual impact of the pre-workout. Unfortunately, the effects of a high-class supplement from this group should not be limited to this. Yes, the pre-workout should stimulate the body, but to meet the progressive training assumptions. The stimulation caused by pre-training sessions is sometimes so great that it leads to symptoms of breakdown, causes food discomfort, and inability to concentrate on the assumed tasks. You will not experience such effects with Boogieman Shot. This pre-workout contains a complex of ingredients stimulating the body, such as anhydrous caffeine and taurine.

CITRULLINE MALATE LEMONADE...

Citrulline is a non-essential amino acid, meaning that it can be synthesised (produced) within the body. The synthesis of citrulline primarily occurs in the enterocytes (cells) of the small intestine, via an enzymatic reaction of two other amino acids, glutamine and proline. Once formed, citrulline is involved in various metabolic pathways — most notably, the urea cycle — and is a precursor for the amino acid Arginine. One of the key benefits of arginine is its role in Nitric Oxide (NO) production.
