arginine alpha-ketoglutarate
May 21, 2012

I have these supplements, arginine alpha-ketoglutarate, but want to know if it is good to take them while living with HIV.

Response from Mr. Vergel

That supplement has not been shown to improve muscle mass or strength in peer reviewed studies. I would not waste my time with it. We also have no interaction data with HIV medications.


Possible exposure during stress test
