Source Naturals Athletic Series OKG™ Ornithine Alpha-Ketoglutarate Powder Description
Ornithine alpha-Ketoglutarate, or OKG™, is a combination of the amino acid ornithine and alpha-ketoglutaric acid (AKG). AKG is an important component in the Krebs cycle, the chief energy-producing cycle in the body. Free-form ornithine is used by athletes and those who want to improve performance. OKG spares muscles the need to break down their BCAAs (branch chain amino acids) in order to generate glutamine, an important energy fuel. Glutamine is generated when AKG combines with ammonia released during intense muscle activity.

hygroscopic, adsorbs moisture
Works well blended into a bodybuilders shake, where the flavor is unobtrusive and barely noticeable. But keep it away from any damp air and keep the lid tight, or it will get stuck into a big lump instead of a nice powder that mixes easily. ..
