A-Ketoglutaicum Acidum or “AKG”
One of the ingredients in our Amino Diet Plus drops is a-Ketoglutaicum Acidum, or AKG. This is used often by peak performance athletes and bodybuilders and plays a critical role in the Krebs Cycle.
The Krebs Cycle, also known as the Citric Acid Cycle, is a very important process of the body, whereby the body generates energy from carbs, fats, and proteins. It was presented to the world in the 1930’s by Hans Adolf Krebs and Albert Szent-Gyorgyi; both recipients were awarded Nobel Prizes.
So, why is AKG such an important element to our Amino Diet Plus drops? Studies have shown that AKG (a-Ketoglutaicum Acidum) helps the body to properly metabolize amino acids and transfer energy. In addition, research has shown that AKG can cause the level of ammonia (bad stuff) to be reduced in areas such as the muscles, kidneys, and brain. While following the Liquid Amino Diet protocol, the AKG in our drops helps you process your food into energy and eliminate toxins from the body.
