Ornithine Alpha Ketoglutarate

Ornithine Alpha-Ketoglutarate: Information

Ornithine Alpha-Ketoglutarate or OKG is formed from two molecules of the amino acid L-ornithine, and one alpha-ketoglutarate molecule. The body uses OKG to help produce L-arginine, L-glutamine, L-proline and polyamines.

OKG's Health Benefits

OKG is very useful in cases of trauma or severe burn, or in individuals with muscle wasting, as it may help prevent catabolism (breakdown of muscle tissue for energy) may help support muscle growth, and has been shown to boost the immune system. In cases of trauma, the body's ability to synthesize L-arginine and L-glutamine are impaired, and OKG supplementation helps to remedy this. Athletes and strength trainers may reap anabolic and anti-catabolic benefits as well from supplementing with OKG; however, more research is needed.

Using OKG

Use as directed. OKG supplements are available in caplet or powder form.

Side-effects and Cautions:

Pregnant/nursing women should not take OKG.
