View Certificate of Analysis »

Alpha-ketoglutarate (AKG) is a compound that is created naturally in the body but tends to diminish with age. In supplement form, AKG can be attached to a calcium salt (Ca-AKG), which has been studied for its role in supporting metabolic function and longevity (1).

Ca-AKG is involved in stimulating protein synthesis and energy production in the body, as it is a vital component of the Kreb’s cycle - the process that creates ATP (energy) from food. Ca-AKG is also a source of the essential amino acids needed to make collagen, which is a protein that helps to support bone and muscle health.

Additionally, Ca-AKG facilitates our internal recycling process known as autophagy, which removes dysfunctional cells, cell parts, and proteins from the body. Autophagy tends to decrease with age, so Ca-AKG may be able to help support this process.

Research has found that AKG lengthened lifespan in roundworms by up to 50% and delayed signs of aging (2). This may be because Ca-AKG activates AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) - a pathway that senses and maintains cellular energy balance by supporting the function of our cells' main energy hubs (the mitochondria) and healthy blood sugar control (3).

Ca-AKG has also been shown to boost cellular antioxidant levels in aged mice, which helped support the mice’s blood vessel elasticity - a measure of good cardiovascular health (4).

Hard to tell...

I definitely have better energy since starting this along with NMN but hard to differentiate whether Calcium AKG gets all the credit since I think NMN may be doing the heavy lifting!

Worth the wait

It was a long search to find this very popular product, but I finally discovered ProHealth and then patiently waited for it to come back in stock so that I could place my first order. The research told me that ProHealth offers very generous pricing for the quality compared to many other online suppliers. Worth the search, worth the wait, and very worth the price.
