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:

        Another quality product by an awesome company. Alpha Amino takes BCAAs to the next level by adding hydrating properties and without adding sugar or aspartame. Like a typical Cellucor product, it tastes great too!

          Comments about Cellucor® ALPHA Amino™ - Fruit Punch:

          I've been taking AA pre and post-workout for the past couple of weeks, and I absolutely love it. I have the tendency to do fasted training, so I'll take a scoop before I go in to hit the gym in the morning and take another scoop after while I shower and unwind. Since I've started taking it, I've definitely noticed gains (I'm a 5'4" Asian girl), my muscles are more defined, and I've been cutting body fat. My performance hasn't suffered showing up fasted because I take AA and also C4 before I get my workouts in! It mixes great and tastes great (The Lemon Lime is awesome too! My only complaint is that there aren't enough servings in a single tub! ;) Either way, I love it. I'll be getting it from here on out. Cellucor has outdone themselves again!

              Comments about Cellucor® ALPHA Amino™ - Fruit Punch:

              I've tried the fruit punch and watermelon flavors of the Alpha Aminos. I liked the fruit punch MUCH better- the watermelon flavor is like the watermelon C4 for me, just tastes a little bitter, it's kind of hard for me to drink. But the fruit punch is out of this world. I love drinking this during my workouts, it's so refreshing and hydrating. I've found with other intra-workout drinks, a lot of them leave a residue or a film which is unsettling, but the Alpha Aminos are very clean in that sense. They definitely quench my thirst and keep me going during my rough workouts. I also don't like that other intras seem to make you even MORE thirsty- but the AA are very satisfying. It mixed with the water like a dream, was super smooth. I also feel like when I was drinking them on a regular basis that my recovery seemed a little quicker. I'm still sore of course, but my workouts are hard and I don't seem to be AS useless after my big workouts as I was without the Alphas.

                Comments about Cellucor® ALPHA Amino™ - Fruit Punch:

                Taste 10/10: As I said some of the beta test reviews of the flavor will not do it justice, it honestly tastes like some really good home made lemonade, not to sweet but not to sour! A lot of people like Hemavol Lemon Drop, lets just say its similar however tastes a lot better! Mixability 9/10- Mixed real easy for me barely shook it, the only thing is mine had a little bit of the product unmixed at the bottom, also no foam. Profile 10/10- I really like the ingredient label of this product, I like how they threw in a hydration formula because I notice I get dehydrated while I work out and it makes me weaker so by adding this I was stronger and felt good. What I also like how there is 3x Leucine in this product, I am firm believer in this amino because its been show to increase protein synthesis which results in better muscle growth! There is 5g of Bcaas, which is good I prefer to have anywhere from 5-10g. Cost 9/10- I would say it is pretty fairly priced its about a dollar per serving, if they made the price $20 for 30 servings there is not doubt in my mind, that I would always buy this Amino supplement forever! They do have a good deal if you buy 2 you get one free which then makes it a very good price! Hydration 10/10- I really noticed this did help, normally I drink around three water bottles at the gym, I had mixed this with ten ounces and sipped on this throughout my workout and probably drank a little less then a bottle of water. Recovery 9/10- I drank this twice a day and noticed that I recovered a lot faster the next day I was less sore and ready to get back to the gym with full energy! Especially on leg day I always get really sore, however I did notice the reduced soreness and this helped me get back in the gym! Overall 10/10
