Alpha-Ketoglutaric Acid


Alpha-ketoglutaric acid (AKG) is a ketone derivative of the organic compound glutaric acid. It is important for the proper metabolism of all essential amino acids and the transfer of cellular energy in the citric acid or Krebs cycle. It is a precursor to glutamic acid, the non-essential amino acid involved in protein synthesis and regulation of blood glucose metabolism. When combined with L-glutamate, AKG can reduce ammonia levels in the brain, muscles and kidneys, balance the body's nitrogen chemistry and prevent excess nitrogen in body tissues and fluids. Individuals with high protein intake or disturbed gastrointestinal microbiota may benefit from supplemental AKG to balance ammonia levels and protect tissues.
