ISOLEUCINE ALPHA-KETOGLUTARATE – is a newer form of the amino acid isoleucine, which is most commonly used in newer amino acid supplements. The combination of alpha-ketoglutarate and isoleucine into one molecule can significantly facilitate the body’s use of isoleucine, which increases the effectiveness of supplementation. It also increases the usefulness of this amino acid by giving it the properties of AKG. AKG, in turn, is an intermediate product of the Krebs cycle. Plays a very important role in the energy processes of the cell. ISOLEUCINE is typically found in BCAA supplements, as well as in some multi-component keratin stacks and pre- and post-workout supplements. The use of isoleucine alpha-ketoglutarate helps to improve the nitrogen balance. This is because this compound has strong anti-catabolic properties that keep muscle tissue from breaking down. In addition, if you take it before training, it improves the ability to exert effort and delays fatigue.
Dosage: 1-2g before, after or during exercise.
