L-glutamine alpha-ketoglutarate (AKG), provides the non-essential amino acid, L-glutamine, along with alpha-ketoglutaric acid, a component of the Citric Acid Cycle.
L-glutamine is a non-essential amino acid that is a large component protein in skeletal muscle tissue. L-glutamine is also found in high concentrations in the brain, intestinal lining, lungs, heart, kidney and liver.
L-glutamine can be a source of cellular energy, along with glucose. Because of this, L-glutamine is often used in work-out supplement programs. L-glutamine also supports hepatic and renal systems, as well as muscles, in being a component of protein synthesis.
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-glutamine and alpha-ketoglutarate help support healthy nitrogen metabolism and energy production.
