Description

L-Orthinine

Ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate 2:1 (OKG) is a salt formed of two molecules of ornithine and one molecule of alpha-ketoglutarate. It has been used in a clinical setting for over 20 years to treat hypercatabolic states and enhance wound healing (burns victims) as well as drastically improving all markers of recovery, in elderly patients recovering from acute illnesses. Once inside the body, OKG is metabolized into its individual components that enter several metabolic cycles to produce glutamine, arginine, ornithine, proline, and plyamines.

This in itself isn't that remarkable, but OKG appears to exhert a performance enhancing effect - such as increases in strength, and work capacity - above and beyond taking the same amino acids in a separate formula. OKG has been shown to increase the concentration of anabolic hormones such as insulin, growth hormone, and IGF-1 simulaneously. It can also help maintain intramuscular stores of glutamine, which helps regulate protein turnover. All this creates a powerful anabolic/anti-catabolic effect on muscle proteins, leading to favourable improvements in body composition.

Additionally, it has been shown to be a potent immunonutrient that can increase immune function. Studies have shown that OKG can inhibit stress-induced thymus involution, increase both lymphocyte count and activity, improve immunoglobulin production, and increase the cytotoxicity of macrophages. Since physical (intensive exercise) and mental stress can both reduce immunity and induce catabolic stress hormones, OKG is a potent nutrient that can help our bodies deal with these stresses. With an ability to increase strength, work capacity, immunity, recovery, and improve body composition, OKG might be the most pertinent all-in-one supplement that any serious trainer could take.

Benefits

Supplementing with OKG provides the following:

  • Increases force output
  • Increases work capacity
  • Increases strength endurance
  • Reduces the risk of infection and maintains immune system integrity when under extreme physical or mental stress
  • Increases levels of insulin, hGH and IGF-1 (anabolic hormones)
  • Increases recovery
  • Is both anabolic/anti-catabolic

Probably the single most effective supplement I've used. I'm a relatively slow responder - it takes about a week of dosing at 18g/day (over 3 doses) for it to really have an effect on my sessions, but the strength and endurance gains this gives are hugely noticeable thereafter. Perhaps the biggest benefit provided by OAKG comes by way of improved recovery - I feel as though I can train hard just about every day whilst I'm using the stuff. The gains seem to taper off after 5 weeks or so, so for cost effectiveness it makes sense to cycle it.OAKG also seems to give an increase in appetite and mild improvement in body composition. As it's ammonia scavenging, it should become more effective at higher protein intakes - I typically consume around 3.5-4g/kg bodyweight. - 5/5 : O.Godfrey - 22/8/08
