Details

L-ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate (OKG) provides the non-essential amino acid, L-ornithine along with alpha-ketoglutaric acid, a component of the Citric Acid Cycle.

L-ornithine a non-essential amino acid synthesized from the breakdown of L-arginine. L-ornithine is not an amino acid coded for by DNA, and in that sense, is not involved in protein synthesis. However, L-ornithine is a central part of the urea cycle, which allows the body to dispose of excess nitrogen.

Alpha-ketoglutarate (α-Ketoglutarate or AKG) is a keto acid produced by de-amination of the amino acid, glutamate, and is a metabolic intermediate in the Citric Acid Cycle. Alpha-ketoglutarate is an important nitrogen transporter in biochemical pathways. The amino groups of amino acids are attached to alpha-ketoglutarate via transamination reactions, where it is then carried to the liver where the urea cycle takes place.

In this way, the combination of L-ornithine and alpha-ketoglutarate help support healthy nitrogen metabolism.

The amino acids ornithine and glutamine are combined to form ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate (OKG).

  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary “Star-Rating” system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.
