Proline, the uncredited anabolic amino acid for joint health

Proline, a non-essential amino acid, is a signaling molecule, (a sensor of cellular energy status), that's involved in building muscle, wound healing, , antioxidative reactions (scavange free radicals), and immune responses. Proline lowers reactive nitrogen species (ROS), therefore protecting cells against hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), tert-butyl hydroperoxide, and any carcinogenic oxidative stress inducers. (1) Proline plus hydroxyproline … Continue reading Proline, the uncredited anabolic amino acid for joint health

Ornithine α-ketoglutarate – a remarkable anabolic amino acid

Ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate (OKG) is a salt formed of 2 molecules of the amino acid ornithine and 1 alpha-ketoglutarate (intermediate in the kreb cycle). There is evidence that the benefit of OKG is not the simple addition of the effects of ornithine (Orn) and alpha-ketoglutarate (AKG), because the presence of both moieties is required to induce … Continue reading Ornithine α-ketoglutarate – a remarkable anabolic amino acid
