What is AAKG?

AAKG is found naturally in the body and it can be harvested for use to create certain medications. It also often is used to help athletes improve their overall athletic performance.

How does it work?

AAKG combines with extra ammonia that already occurs in the body to help reduce the problems that often come from having too much ammonia in the body. The result is that it can help cure several medical conditions and can also help athletes perform at a much better way. AAKG helps to build muscle by traveling through multiple pathways in the body and also to repair tissue and help wounds heal.

Used To Treat

Stomach and intestinal disorders, kidney disease, liver problems, bacterial infections, yeast infections that reoccur frequently, cataracts, and for kidney patients that are receiving hemodialysis. Can also be used to help prevent muscles from breakdown following trauma or to help reduce blood supply issues during heart surgery.

Key benefits

Helps to prevent blood loss and reduce muscle loss.

How to take/dosage

When used to treat muscle breakdown or to prevent blood loss during heart surgery AAKG is given directly into the bloodstream via an IV. Otherwise the supplement is usually taken orally

Possible side effects

There do not appear to be any side effects for AAKG and it is safe for most adults to use although breast-feeding and pregnant women should not use AAKG.


There do not appear to be any known interactions to AAKG.

Safety concerns

There are no safety concerns with AAKG although it has not been proven to be effective to treat kidney disease based on medical evidence.
