Cardio Miracle™ contains AAKG
A 100% blend of pharmaceutical grade L-arginine and Alpha-Ketoglutrate.
Arginine AAKG gives you all the endothelial- lining-support and vasodilation properties of arginine plus a number benefits from alpha- ketoglutarate (AKG), such as increased arginine stability, bioavailability, and absorption.
Furthermore, alpha-ketoglutarate will serve as a transport medium for arginine, for optimal synthesis. Beyond this, AKG supports the bodies endogenous production of glutamine and glutamic acid, both important for muscle growth and for the immune system. AKG also has been shown to bind to toxic ammonia in muscle cells, in the liver, and in the brain, thereby converting ammonia into glutamic acid improving glutamine levels and assisting in elimination of toxic ammonia from the body. Lastly, as a Krebs Cycle intermediate, AKG has shown to have positive effects on VO2 Max and energy metabolism in muscle cells, and is consequently a potent ergogenic.
Poor absorption can limit L-arginine’s benefits
Although this powerful Amino Acid has been shown to provide a large number of health benefits, it has one significant issue; our body has a very difficult time digesting and absorbing L-arginine. One reason is that the intestine and liver contain the enzyme arginase that breaks down L-arginine.
Clinical Studies have suggested that in many cases our bodies are able to utilize less than 50% of the L-arginine we consume. The remainder of the L-arginine product is excreted from our body in the form of waste. The low percentage of absorption is what forces hospitals to provide patients with L-arginine Intravenously instead of orally. Arginine in the AKG form utilizes a different enzymatic pathway for absorption than regular L-arginine, which allows our body to absorb 90% of the form AKG.
