Health Notes

Ornithine Alpha-Ketoglutarate

Ornithine Alpha-Ketoglutarate
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • 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.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

          Comments about Cellucor® ALPHA Amino™ - Fruit Punch:

          There are a lot of different types of aminos out there today. I have to say that Alpha Amino has been one of my favorites so far. Helps with recovery, gives me energy and definitely tastes amazing! (like 99.9% of all Cellucor stuff) If you're looking for a new Amino to try I'd say GO ALPHA! Taste: 10/10 Fruit Punch flavor takes just like Kool-Aid! Mixability: 10/10 Absolutely no powder or clumping with a shaker cup. Effectiveness: 9/10 Definately helps with recovery and gives you that little extra boost you sometimes need

            Comments about Cellucor® ALPHA Amino™ - Fruit Punch:

            Cellucor's previous BCAA has beta-alanine which, as an amputee, I just do not enjoy. That itch my in leg is too much. I was so happy to find that they released Alpha Amino because I am a big fan of Cellucor and Royal Sports LTD. products. I throw two scoops of Alpha Amino in with a scoop of Cellucor M5 and drink that during my workout. They mix great, taste fantastic, the drink is very refreshing and I know I'm just sipping down some gains while I'm getting my lift in. Great product.

              Comments about Cellucor® ALPHA Amino™ - Fruit Punch:

              I want to thank Cellucor for sending me a sample of their ALPHA Amino supplement to try out. I used 1 scoop of this product during my workout as an intra-workout supplement. I felt that this supplement helped keep my energy levels up and helped to improve my endurance while I was training. I noticed that I was able to train for a longer amount of time before reaching muscle failure/exhaustion. This supplement mixed perfectly with 20oz of water and tasted great as well. This supplement provides a great value for the claims that it makes.
