- Combines two molecules of the amino acid ornithine with one molecule of alpha ketoglutaric acid.
- Increases production of GH (growth hormone).
- Particularly beneficial to sports enthusiasts.
Ornithine alpha ketoglutarate (OKG) is a compound that combines two molecules of the amino acid ornithine with one molecule of alpha ketoglutaric acid, an important component in the Krebs cycle. As a precursor of growth hormone, ornithine is twice as effective as arginine. OKG supplementation increases production of GH (growth hormone) and of IGF-1, an active, easy-to-measure derivative of GH.
