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:

      Cellucor sent me some samples of their new Alpha Amino BCAA and glutamine complex to try. The flavors remind me of Sour Patch Kids in watermelon, blue raspberry, and lemon lime. The powder is easily dissolved, I blended mine into ice and water. I noticed during my workouts that I wasn't as thirsty as I normally am during training. I typically drink up to 3 water bottles throughout my session, on the days that I drank Alpha Amino before training, I only needed 1 water bottle to get me through. This is thanks to their coconut and chia thirst-quenching extract! I wasn't as sore and recovered from my workouts quickly which was also a huge plus! I love this brand, they put in effort to ensure that their products are high quality and also care about the consumers opinions! A++++!

          I received a sample of the fruit punch alpha amino from cellucor for review and I have to say I really like it. I've tasted fruit punch, icy blue razz, and watermelon and I like the taste. I also tasted the lemon lime and was Not to thrilled with the taste. I used two scoops to 10-12 oz of water and drank it before working out and felt great after the work out. I wasn't too sore. I will continue to use this product along with the other cellucor products I take. It makes a great addition to my supps.

          I have never tried an Amino Acid product before but Cellucor's Alpha Amino was the perfect place to start. This product has a wonderful variety of flavors to fit everyones preference. I tried the watermelon, blue raz, and lemon lime flavors and they were all great in my opinion. I did not notice and performance increases or anything like that in the gym with a product like this, but I don't think you are supposed to since it is an amino acid but I am sure it was doing good for my body. Overall this product looked great and tasted great.

              Comments about Cellucor® ALPHA Amino™ - Fruit Punch:

              I just want to start off by saying I was selected by Cellucor to be sent samples of Alpha Amino for review.

              YUMMMM! These are the best BCAA's I've tried up to this point. First, they are zero calories and taste amazing, so I may or may not have drank 2 in one day!!!! This drink mixes perfectly and there were no clumps in it at all.

              There were 3 flavors (Blue Razz, Lemon Lime and Watermelon). The Blue Razz was defintely my favorite of the 3 but the others were fabulous as well. I mixed 1 scoops with 12 oz of water after my workout and also drank another later in the afternoon.

              These BCAA drinks usually make me more thirsty after I drink one and I find myself having to chew gum or chugging water to get the weird after taste/cotton mouth feeling out. NOT Alpha Amino! It quenched my thirst perfectly and zero dry mouth effect!!

              I had one of the hardest workouts (leg day) on the day I test trialed this product, the next day I felt NO fatigue or soreness & woke up feeling 100% and ready for round two. It's a GREAT product!! Two Thumbs up Cellucor, you did it again :)

                    Comments about Cellucor® ALPHA Amino™ - Fruit Punch:

                    I had the opportunity to receive free samples of Alpha Amino from Cellucor. I received 3 (1 serving) samples. The flavors were: Lemon Lime, Icy Blue Razz, and Watermelon. My favorite tasting flavor was watermelon, however none were bad. The product mixed very easily too. It also did not have to be remixed after the initial mixing. I've had other BCAA products that had to be shaken after every sip. I use BCAA's in 2 settings: one for early morning fasted cardio and the other to sip throughout my day at work. I typically mix BCAA's with more water than the packaging calls for (20+ ounces) so that I satisfy my water requirements and receive BCAA's simultaneously. All 3 flavors still tasted ok and was refreshing with the higher water amounts. They were easy to drink and had no bad aftertaste. In summary, Alpha Amino overall is a great product. Easy to mix, taste good, and easy to drink. I can't honestly speak to the overall effectiveness on DOMs or muscle soreness since I only had 3 (1 serving) samples. However I did consume these samples on heavy workout days with dual sessions: early AM cardio (6+ miles running) and PM weights with minimal soreness. Only suggestion I would have is to have a caffeinated version for fasted cardio sessions (during the AM). Thanks Cellucor for the opportunity to try your product.

                      I was selected by Cellucor to analyze their BCAA Product ALPHA AMINO. After using it for the last few days I can easily say that I am impressed with the quality of BCAA they have come up with in this product. I have tried and used many BCAA products because I believe through my research and trial I am wasting my workout if BCAA's aren't in my supplement regimen. In my search i have found some very weird flavors and honestly some disappointing product so I am always skeptical especially with newer product. Cellucor Didn't disappoint, My recovery with alpha amino was much smoother than the current brand I have been taking. This is something I will be adding to my morning and post workout routine from now on! GREAT PRODUCT!! Dare ya to try!

                        I received samples of the Ice Blue Razz, Lemon Line and Watermelon alpha aminos from Cellucor. I have been looking for a post-recovery drink to add to my workout routine and these definitely fit the bill! I liked all the flavors I tried and found them to be not overly sweet or sugary like with many store bought drinks. The mixability of all these products was amazing - no gritty powder left behind. I mixed all with about 16oz of water and found that to be a great ratio for flavor. I also pleased about how much these aided with my recovery and added extra energy during the day while drinking. The ingredients in the aminos aided my hydration and will help give me a great tasting way to increase my water intake.
