What’s Calcium alpha ketoglutarate Powder?

Calcium alpha-ketoglutarate, also known as calcium α-ketoglutarate or calcium AKG or CA-AKG, is a stable natural compound with the salt form of alpha-ketoglutaric acid (AKG), which is naturally involved in various metabolic processes within the body. AKG is an intermediate in the Krebs cycle, which is a crucial part of cellular respiration and energy production. It plays a vital role in the breakdown of nutrients, such as carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, to generate energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). By providing a source of AKG, calcium alpha-ketoglutarate has gained significant attention in the field of sports nutrition and supplementation.

At Rainbow Biotech, calcium alpha-ketoglutarate powder is synthesized and manufactured by reacting alpha-ketoglutaric acid with calcium hydroxide. Dissolved calcium hydroxide in water, and then α-Ketoglutaric acid is added to the solution reaction, followed by filtration, concentration and drying, and finally the crystallization of α-ketoglutarate calcium salt.

Benefits of Calcium alpha ketoglutarate Powder

Maintain bone and muscle health

Ca alpha-ketoglutarate can increase nitric oxide (NO) production. Nitric oxide is a signaling molecule that plays a crucial role in regulating blood flow and vasodilation. Increased NO levels can improve nutrient and oxygen delivery to working muscles, potentially enhancing endurance, recovery, and overall athletic performance.

Support lean muscle growth and recovery

It is thought to stimulate protein synthesis, which is the process of building new muscle proteins. By promoting muscle protein synthesis, calcium alpha-ketoglutarate may help athletes and active individuals recover more efficiently from intense training sessions and potentially support muscle growth and repair.

Helps restore normal calcium levels in the blood

Calcium – AKG helps maintain normal calcium levels in the blood. Ca-AKG binds to excess phosphate, thereby establishing a normal balance between phosphate and calcium levels. In patients with hyperparathyroidism, Ca-AKG supplementation has shown positive results by reducing phosphate levels in the blood and increasing calcium levels in the blood.
