Product Description

Alpha-Ketoglutaric Acid can help to simultaneously reduce excessive levels of glutamates and ammonia in the brain, common in individual within the autism spectrum. Excessive levels of ammonia and glutamates can cause neurological damage. Ammonia can contribute to brain fog and excessive glutamates can contribute to excitotoxic reactions where neurons are damaged through over stimulation and insufficient levels of calming neurotransmitters. Individuals with high protein intake, bacterial infections, or gastrointestinal dysbiosis tend to produce excessive levels of ammonia.**

Alpha-Ketoglutaric Acid (is an organic acid that is important for the proper metabolism of all essential amino acids and the transfer of cellular energy in the citric acid cycle. It is a precursor to glutamic acid, the non-essential amino acid involved in protein synthesis and the regulation of blood glucose levels.

Alpha-Ketoglutaric Acid works in combination with L-glutamate to form glutamic acid, reducing excessive levels of glutamates in the brain. Gllutamic acid then helps to reduce levels of ammonia formed in the brain, muscles and kidneys

Alpha-Ketoglutaric Acid also helps balance the bodys nitrogen chemistry and prevent nitrogen excess in body tissues and fluids.

Suggested use: As a dietary supplement take one capsule daily or as directed by a licensed health care professional.
