L-Ornithine Alpha-ketoglutarate 2 to 1
L-Ornithine AKG can be used to improve immunity and to help avoid the breakdown of muscle tissue. It may also help to improve the anabolic response to intense training
L-Ornithine AKG is an ionic salt that contains two molecules of ornithine and one molecule of alpha-ketogluterate. L-Ornithine AKG is required for the normal functioning of the urea cycle.
L-Ornithine AKG is a nutritional supplement that can support various training goals by increasing lean body mass and strength. L-Ornithine AKG works by elevating the levels of the anabolic growth hormones insulin and growth hormone after training. The mechanism for this process is suggested to result from raising the availability of amino acids for protein synthesis and for reducing protein degradation.
