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:

      I was lucky enough to get a few free samples from Cellucor and I am really impressed with the product! It tastes great (I've had multiple flavors and they're all good) and you can adjust how strong you want the flavor by just adding or decreasing the amount of water you use. Mix-ablility is great, a bit of water and a few shakes and you're good to go! Doesn't settle as bad as other products and doesn't get all frothy. I used this product intra-workout and I feel it really helped me push through those more grueling, long workouts as well as keep me for getting so sore the next day. The ingredients list has just about everything you would need, but I liked to add a bit of Beta-alanine just for a bit of tingle! Overall, this is my new go to BCAA supp!

        Comments about Cellucor® ALPHA Amino™ - Fruit Punch:

        I was chosen by Cellucor to sample three flavors of Alpha Amino, Watermelon, Icy Blue Razz and Lemon Lime and give some feedback. Of those three flavors I'm torn between the Icy Blue Razz and the Watermelon as a favorite flavor. They both are very tasty, but I did find that the Watermelon was a bit sweeter than the Icy Blue Razz. The Lemon Lime was better than I anticipated. I usually think of Theraflu cold medicine and become reluctant to drink it. However, this flavor was very smooth and didn't taste medicinal. Definitely a plus! I tried the Watermelon and Icy Blue Razz flavors post-workout and the Lemon Lime pre-workout. I found that taking it pre-workout worked the best for me. I believe that by taking it before it helped my muscles prepare for the intense workout I was going to do and minimized any DOMS. I mixed flavor with about 8-10 ounces of water. The blended very well with the water and I didn't notice any granules. This product is something that can be taken at anytime.....rest day or with any workout. It could definitely be a good addition for anyone who struggles with drinking enough water.

          Comments about Cellucor® ALPHA Amino™ - Fruit Punch:

          I was chosen by Cellucor to sample and review this product,.Firstly, this was a really good product. I was impressed that this not only mixed well, but tasted great, and didn't upset my stomach like Amino X did. I mixed 1 packet with 8 ounces, 1 packet with 5 ounces, and another packet with 12 ounces. It tasted great with all three measurements. I drank it during my workouts and I didn't feel dehydrated or get a weird after taste. I noticed that I felt more of a pump and was able to lift longer that usual, I recovered more quickly between sets. The first day I used it was chest day, I was sore the next day but the other 2 days I used it I was not. Overall, very impressed and I plan to purchase this. I feel like it boosted my lifts.

              I received samples of the Lemon Lime, Watermelon, and Icy Blue Razz. Great product for hydration. I normally drink water while working out, however while using this during a workout I found I only needed a sip to feel refreshed. Mix ability is great. Taste was incredible except for the Lemon lime which left much to be desired. Overall a great product and will be buying in the near future.

                I was selected to get some samples of Alpha Amino from Cellucor. I tried 3 different flavors-watermelon, lemon lime, and icy blue razz. Icy Blue Razz was my favorite tasting flavor but none of them tasted bad. They all mixed great with water. I drank them during my workouts and they helped me keep my thirst at bay and give me a little extra oomph to complete my workout sets. I had a better recovery afterwards which I attribute to Alpha Amino. I would definitely say Alpha Amino is a great amino acid choice for your workouts, I will be incorporating it into my daily routine now.

                  Just made a purchase on Alpha Aminos, after trying the sample packs. I noticed a big difference taking it, being able to recover quicker from an intense workouts and being able to finish that last rep. I have tried all three Flavors and all three are great, feels like your drinking juice. If any first time users looking to buy any BCAAs i would definitely recommend this too you.

                    I had three servings to try out so I spread them out like this: One serving the day before deadlifts, one during, one after. To my surprise, I had no soreness the day after the deadlift session and I wanted to do more because of that. The variety of flavors is great and the taste is exceptional to say the least. I usually don't spend money on supplements, but I'm definitely getting a tub of this stuff. The product just works.

                      I received a bunch of samples (lemon lime, watermelon, and icy blue razz) to test before choosing which one I wanted to buy. Out of the 3 I have, lemon lime was the best tasting, although none of them tasted bad...they all mix well also.
                      This is a good product to use during a workout, because it seems like you stay hydrated and not super thirsty (although 3 uses isn't a big sample size, just early thoughts).
                      In the past, I have tried several different amino acids and bcaa, and I think this will be my next purchase.

As with any Cellucor product I have tried, the flavors are spot on! I'm not a big fan of any Icy Blue Razz in any product I've tried but this one isn't bad at all. I used this product during my workouts and tried to keep the same intensity level so that I could compare how the product would work for post workout soreness. It seem to help a little with soreness, but with three sample packs it was hard to give an accurate rating on this. Overall, It taste good!
