Properties of components
– L-arginine alpha-ketoglutarate: salt of the amino acid arginine obtained by combining it with the alpha-ketoglutarate molecule. The association of the molecules improves the stability of the compound in an aqueous environment, prolonging its effect.
L-arginine is involved in the process, the urea cycle, of eliminating excess nitrogen in the form of ammonia. It is also involved in the biochemical processes of production of nitrogen monoxide (NO), also known as nitric oxide, a substance with a marked vasodilatory action at the level of the microcirculation.
Alpha ketoglutarate is involved in regulating the Krebs cycle for energy production.
