Ornithine alpha ketoglutarate (OKG) improves the performance of athletes by speeding muscle recovery time while boosting protein synthesis. Ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate, is an advanced anabolic and anti-catabolic amino acid supplement designed for serious strength athletes. Ornithine Alpha-Ketoglutarate consists of the amino acid ornithine bonded to alpha-ketoglutarate molecules. Research has shown that supplementation of OKG assists with increased protein synthesis, decreased protein catabolism, improvements in insulin and somatropin secretion and increased uptake of amino acids and glucose to the muscles. OKG's anabolic potential makes it a must for all athletes desiring to improve muscle mass and recovery. NutraBio.com OKG comes in a pure powder or capsule form with absolutely no additives or fillers, just pure active OKG.
OKG increases tissue levels of glutamine and arginine, which increase growth hormone levels and protein synthesis. Studies show that OKG generates more glutamine and arginine in the systemic circulation than when these substances are given separately. OKG is a salt formed by combining two molecules of the amino acid ornithine and one molecule of alpha-ketoglutarate. Because OKG seems to be involved in amino acid synthesis and protein availability, many athletes supplement with OKG as a way to increase muscle mass, hormone levels and strength.
Taking OKG decreases muscle protein catabolism (breakdown) and increases protein synthesis, in addition to promoting wound healing. OKG fulfills these functions by encouraging the secretion of insulin and human growth hormone, and by up regulating glutamine and arginine production. When given to trauma patients, there are significant increases in both IGF-1 and growth hormone levels.
Warning - Fake OKG has hit the Internet! NutraBio sells only legitimate OKG 2:1 which has been lab tested for potency and purity. Don't be fooled by competitors that blend ornithine HCl and alpha-ketoglutarate (AKG) and call it OKG, it's not. For OKG to be effective the ornithine must be chemically bonded to the AKG to form a single molecule. The cheap blended OKG is not chemically bonded and is not effective because the body treats the ornithine and the AKG as two separate molecules. Since the AKG is not chemically bonded to the ornithine it can't act as a shuttle to carry the ornithine into the muscle cells.
Beware of inferior OKG 1:1 with 33% less ornithine! There are 2 types of OKG available on the market; a 2:1 ratio and a 1:1 ratio. We use only the 2:1 ratio which means that two molecules of ornithine are chemically bonded to one molecule of alpha?-?ketoglutarate ?(?AKG?). OKG 2:1 is more effective because it contains 33% more ornithine per serving than the 1:1 version. Remember, it's the ornithine that gives you the anabolic benefit within the muscle, while the AKG acts only as the shuttle system. A 1500 mg serving of OKG 2:1 contains 1000 mg of active ornithine as compared to only 750 mg in the 1:1. Our OKG 2:1 gives you 33% more ornithine with no loss in bio-availability. Manufacturers use 1:1 because it's half the price and most customers never realize they're getting ripped off.
OKG is a potent anabolic muscle building food:
OKG increases energy, endurance and muscle mass while inhibiting muscle breakdown, fatigue, and the build up of fat. OKG also has the ability to speed up recovery time which is why it has become a popular choice among many athletes. Ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate (OKG) is a combination of the amino acid L-Ornithine, used by athletes to improve performance, and alpha-ketoglutarate (AKG). AKG is a precursor to the amino acid glutamine and it also plays an important role in the physiological process known as the Krebs cycle which responsible for breaking down carbohydrates in your body to produce energy.
