L Glutamine Alpha ketoglutarate

CAS NO: 16856-18-1

L-Glutamine Alpha-Ketoglutarate (AKG) is a salt formed by combining L-Glutamine and Alpha-Ketoglutaric Acid. Its chemical formula is C10H16N4O10. L-Glutamine AKG is commonly used as a dietary supplement to support muscle recovery and growth, improve exercise performance, and enhance immune function. It is also used in some medical applications to help treat conditions such as muscle wasting, cancer cachexia, and liver disease. L-Glutamine AKG is believed to work by increasing the availability of L-Glutamine in the body, which is an important fuel source for immune cells and intestinal cells, as well as a precursor for protein synthesis. The addition of Alpha-Ketoglutaric Acid is thought to enhance the absorption and utilization of L-Glutamine by the body.
