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:

Preliminary1 and controlled2 studies of people with severe burns and other types of injuries3 showed that supplementation with 10-30 grams of ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate (OKG) per day significantly improved wound healing and decreased the length of hospital stays. Improved healing from major trauma and surgery has also been demonstrated with oral supplements including several grams per day of glutamine.4

    Comments about Cellucor® ALPHA Amino™ - Watermelon:

    I put a scoop in about 32 oz. of water and sip it throughout the day. It tastes like a Watermelon Jolly Rancher. My friend recommended it to me and I am glad she did :) It's a must have! You can drink it during your workout, or after. I have nothing to say about this product! Thanks Cellucor, yet again for making me happy. You never seem to disappoint :-p

      Comments about Cellucor® ALPHA Amino™ - Watermelon:

      Cellucor nails it with another solid amino supp. I had the pleasure of trying this on its first run. The two flavors I had the opportunity of trying were watermelon and lemon lime. Watermelon flavor was very refreshing and spot on as I expected from Cellucor. The lemon lime flavor was disappointing, could be because I do not enjoy lemon lime flavors but I found it to have a strange aftertaste. Now on to the profile, I train fasted so an amino product is very important. I've went through a number of different amino supps, Cellucor packs a lot in this one. What stuck out to me most was the BCAA Matrix and Hydration Formula. The 3 forms of leucine are very unique to this product & would be my main reason for recommending this product. The leucine nitrate gave me a nice pump during my workout, a very nice feature which I have found into other amino product. Definitely helped great with my recovery.The hydration complex with raw coconut water and chia seed extract is very refreshing. Electrolytes from my aminos > electrolytes from any "sports drink". No issues with mix ability here. All in all if your looking to try a new amino, this is a nice stray away from the run of the mill.

        Comments about Cellucor® ALPHA Amino™ - Watermelon:

        The flavor tasted pretty good however it was not as delicious as the normal Cellucor products, but it still tastes better then half the products out there. The mix-ability was great, just a little left at the bottom and the rest mixed like a charm, and no foam. 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 a 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. After drinking this I did notice less soreness and also more endurance while I worked out! The only thing I could complain about in this product was, I wish it would taste as good as other Cellucor products, more Bcaas, and probably $5-10 dollars cheaper. Otherwise it is a great product! I also tried one of first lemon lime batches and it was messed up so I will be rating the lemon lime flavor as soon as I get it!
