Source Naturals, OKG (Ornithine Alpha-Ketoglutarate) Powder, 4 oz (113.4 g)4 Reviews
Expiration Date: Jul 2018
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate, or OKG, is a combination of the amino acid ornithine and alpha-ketoglutaric acid (AKG). AKG is an important component in the Krebs cycle, the chief energy-producing cycle in the body. Free-form ornithine is used by athletes and those who want to improve performance. OKG spares muscles the need to break down their BCAA's (branch chain amino acids) in order to generate glutamine, an important energy fuel. Glutamine is generated when AKG combines with ammonia released during intense muscle activity.

iHerb Customer Reviews
This product is somewhat expensive; however it is of good quality and it is very difficult to find OKG online. I'm on a high protein diet and it is an excellent ammonia scavenger. I feel the difference on the days I take it, more energetic. A clinical trial showed that high doses of OKG (10g/day) improved 1RM performance in trained athletes
Purchased and opened April this year, expiry Oct next year. While the container arrived with seal in place, when I removed the lid and inner seal I found the powder was a solid yellow rock inside. I was able to chip away at it a little to get a taste in some water. It's tart/sour though I like that kind of flavour. What little I was able to mix seemed to dissolve well. Shame - I really wanted to try this. Won't purchase again - too costly. If this review was helpful to you, please click YES below - thank you.
