Origin: Derived from the combination of creatine and ketoglutatarate. It is available in supplement form.
Also Known As:
Creatine Alpha Ketoglutatrate
Overview: Creatine AKG is creatine attached to an alpha-ketoglutarate molecule. Creatine-AKG transports more creatine directly into muscle cells which results in a higher muscular creatine concentration. With a higher creatine concentration in the muscle, strength and power performance is significantly enhanced. This is a benefit because it can trigger an immediate anabolic response, whereby muscle cells quickly expand due to the influx of water (cell volumization), and protein synthesis is stimulated (new muscle fiber growth) to fill up the intracellular space.
- Enhancing strength and power during exercise
- Increasing muscle mass
- Increasing blood flow to the muscles
- Increasing nutrient flow to the muscles
Common Dosage: 2 grams to 5 grams per day
