Properties of components
– L-arginine: non-essential amino acid that intervenes in the process, urea cycle, of elimination of 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.
– L-arginine alpha-ketoglutarate: salt of the amino acid arginine obtained by combining it with the alpha-ketoglutarate molecule. The association of the two molecules improves the stability of the compound in an aqueous environment, prolonging its effect.
Alpha ketoglutarate is involved in regulating the Krebs cycle for energy production.
– L-arginine aspartate: salt of the amino acid L-arginine obtained by combining a molecule of L-arginine with a molecule of aspartate.
– L-citrulline: non-essential amino acid that intervenes in the process, urea cycle, of elimination of excess nitrogen in the form of ammonia. Citrulline is the biochemical precursor of arginine.
