L-Ornithine Alpha Ketoglutarate (OKG) is a pure form powder with no excipients or fillers, available in multiple sizes.
L-Ornithine is a non-protein amino acid and plays an intermediate role in the urea cycle in which the Ornithine to a cell is the rate limit of the cycle. Ornithine is not used in the creation of proteins as many other amino acids, however, it's function is characterized by reducing the ammonia concentrations in the blood and increasing urea. Ornithine's function begins with binding to a molecule called Carbamoyl phosphate which produces ammonia and is then converted into L-Citrulline, which gives off urea as a byproduct. The creation of Citrulline is said to put the urea cycle in overdrive, allowing it to suck up more ammonia (composed of Nitrogen molecules) which are produced by working muscles. This in combination reduces the fatigue caused by muscles at the source. This triggers the effect of Arginine conversion into Nitric oxide (NO).†
The increase in Arginine in the blood leads to increased NO production, the increase of NO increases blood flow during exercise and allows for muscles to perform for longer while under stress, which gives weightlifters the ability to produce bigger muscle pump, thus, giving Ornithine the ability to help with increasing muscle endurance and reducing muscle fatigue. The added bonus of Alpha-Ketoglutarate (AKG) gives Ornithine increased absorption and performance in the body for usage. Ornithine is believed to stay in the body for longer durations and helps greatly in reducing ammonia levels in the blood, making it an excellent choice for workouts exceeding 45 minutes as this will allow for improved muscle fatigue reduction long after completion of muscle activity.†
