Ornithine is a non-essential amino acid that has a number of benefits when it comes to athletic performance, specifically strength training. First of all, Ornithine has been shown to help muscles recover faster and boost protein synthesis. At the same time, it helps to reduce catabolism, or the breakdown of your current muscle tissue. In addition, lab studies have shown that Ornithine helps to increase the secretion of insulin and growth hormone. It does this by increasing the production of glutamine and arginine within the body.
We use Ornithine Alpha Ketoglutarate, or OKG, in our products. This is simply L-Ornithine bonded to an alpha Ketoglutarate molecule in order to aid in transporting the ornithine within your body. It is currently found in our Octane line of pre workout products. An optimal dose of OKG is 1500mg.
