Keto acid supplements may help young men who have not been exercising regularly to better tolerate hard physical activity
Regular physical activity is a cornerstone of good health, but for those of us who haven't been moving much, getting started can be daunting. Along with obtaining the go-ahead from your healthcare provider and starting slowly, supplementing with alpha-keto acids may ease the transition from sedentary to active.

Asking about alpha-keto acids

Alpha-keto acids are related to amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. To study how alpha-keto acids affect tolerance to hard physical activity, researchers invited 33, untrained young adult males to begin a four-week exercise program. The program consisted of five sessions per week of 30 minutes of running at a moderately hard pace, followed by three, three-minute sprints at the end of each session. The men were randomly selected to take one of the following:

  • 0.2 grams of alpha-keto glutarate per kilogram of body weight per day
  • 0.2 grams of branched-chain keto acids per kilogram of body weight per day (branched-chain keto acids can be converted to branched chain amino acids)
  • A daily placebo that provided the same calories as the keto acid supplements, but with no keto acids in it

During the four-week exercise program, the men completed questionnaires to assess stress and emotional exhaustion, and the researchers measured maximum power output during exercise each week.

After four weeks, compared to men in the placebo group:

  • men in the alpha-keto glutarate group had significantly greater power output,
  • men in the branched-chain keto acid group had significantly greater power output; their output was somewhat lower than in the alpha-keto glutarate group, though this difference was not significant, and
  • men in both the alpha-keto and branched chain keto acid groups had significantly lower stress and emotional exhaustion.

Easing into exercise

This small study suggests keto acid supplements may help young men who have not been exercising regularly to tolerate hard physical activity better, with less stress and exhaustion. Consider the following before deciding whether you can benefit from keto acids:

  • Be safety savvy. The study lasted four weeks. It does not tell us if taking keto acid supplements long-term is safe or effective. One other small study in men suggests these supplements are safe and well-tolerated when taken for a few days to a few weeks. Beyond this, we don't know.
  • Consider gender and age. The study included young men. It does not tell us whether keto acids will improve exercise tolerance in older men, or young or old women.
  • Assess goals. The study looked at untrained men who were then put through an intense exercise program. If you already exercise regularly, you may gain no additional benefit by taking these supplements. If your physical activity plan includes mostly moderate exercise, such as brisk walking, you are unlikely to benefit from these supplements.
  • Start slow. To establish good physical fitness, begin slowly, and work your way up to longer and/or more intense exercise sessions. Don't forget that all activity counts. Taking the stairs, walking to the store, riding bikes with your kids, or shooting some hoops are all good options for helping you reach 30 minutes of activity per day.

      Comments about PROTOCOL 1009188 Exercise Punching Bag - With Boxing Gloves and Jump Rope:

      Loved it! Gives me the energy I need as I work from home and do a lot of grad school work at home. I take breaks to relieve tension, pump myself back up and also use it to curb cigarette craves. ( aim quitting smoking) Only downer is I have all hardwood floors, so its scoots around and makes a lot of noise, but I set it on a rug and is a little better. If you are really really tall, this product is not for you. Im 5'8 any taller I would be punching downwards. Getting one for my niece so she can become even more active at home.

      The punching bag doesn't hold air and never did. The rest seems to be made of good quality material but the punching bag has a hole. Tried to get a replacement from the warranty department but they never replied to my inquiry.

        Comments about PROTOCOL 1009188 Exercise Punching Bag - With Boxing Gloves and Jump Rope:

        I bought this for my grandson (11) for Christmas and he loves it. His sister (5), mom, and myself have all enjoyed this product. It does have one small plastic piece that is not as durable as we thought it would be but for the price this is an excellent product. None of us are professional boxers so that may be why we get so much enjoyment from bopping this bag. Everyone has taken some frustrations out on it and it is still holding up (except for the little plastic piece which was easy to rig so that it would work). This is great to get the younger ones off the couch and enjoyable for the older ones too.

            this product was for my grandaughter who is schooling at home because of various health issues. she struggles with motor skills and other physical things. She fully enjoys this and it helps keep her active. This is the first jump rope she has been able to do even with therapy. I really love this product. I was surprised to find it on this website. I didn't even think to look here. Thanx.

              Purchased two for grandsons ages 7 & 8. They loved them. Teenaged brother likes it too. Adjustable height is easily changed to fit the one using it. The gloves are ok for different size fists. Just make sure they know how to "bob & weave" or it can punch back.

                    I bought this for my son for Xmas..but I have started using it for myself lol. I love it. It is great for a cardio workout. It has also worked great for toning my arms and back!!! I am a female, so I havent had any problems with it not being strudy enough like the guy posted in his review. I don't think it was intended for hard core boxing...hence the price! I think it was intended as a workout tool, which works great for me!!!

                        DO NOT buy this it sucks, as for the punching bag it literally took me longer to set up than use it. I punched it once and the thing snapped in half, it is held together with this little plastic part which is weak as hell, and it broke really quickly. I do not consider myself strong or a good boxer, but managed to snap this piece of **** in half. Waste of money completely.
