Alpha-Ketoglutaric Acid 300mg
-Assists removal of ammonia from central nervous system.
Alpha-ketoglutaric (AKG) is an organic acid that is important for the proper
metabolism of all essential amino acids and the transfer of cellular energy in
the citric acid cycle. It is a precursor to glutamic acid, the non-essential
amino acid involved in protein synthesis and the regulation of blood glucose
levels. In combination with L-glutamate, AKG can reduce levels of ammonia
formed in the brain, muscles and kidneys, as well as help balance the body’s
nitrogen chemistry and prevent nitrogen excess in body tissues and fluids.
Individuals with high protein intake, bacterial infections, or gastrointestinal
dysbiosis may benefit from supplemental AKG to help balance ammonia levels and
