What is AKG Arginine?
AKG Arginine by Starlabs is a dietary supplement made with easy-absorption L-Arginine, as it is included in the form of AKG (Alpha-Ketoglutarate-Dihydrate).
What are the properties of AKG Arginine?
Arginine is considered a semi-essential amino acid for our body. It can be classified as semi-essential because it is essential during the period of childhood but is nonessential during the adult period.
Despite the above, Arginine provides a number of benefits as a dietary supplement, benefits that have been demonstrated in numerous studies, for example, a study reported that taking arginine helps stimulate the recovery of wounds on patients. (1)
Another important feature of Arginine is that it is a stimulant for the generation of nitric oxide, which is a very beneficial intermediary for many functions of our body.
The intervention of nitric oxide in our body causes our arteries to dilate, vasodilator action, allowing more blood to flow through our veins. As a result of this, blood pressure will reduce, favoring erection, as established by the scientists that performed the study on the action of nitric oxide on male erection. (2)
Another study carried out on 13 people with hypertension, showed that, following a 4 week oral consumption of Arginine, there was a considerable improvement in the blood pressure and quality of life of the patients. (3)
