Description

Ca-AKG 500mg capsules

Calcium Alpha-Ketoglutarate

A multi-year, controlled study, conducted by the Buck Institute for Research on Ageing in aged mice, found that Calcium alpha-ketoglutarate (Ca-AKG), a stable form of alpha-ketoglutarate (AKG), "promotes longer, healthier life associated with a decrease in levels of inflammatory cytokines".

AKG is a chemical produced naturally in the body up until the age of about 40, but then drastically reduces. Taking a Ca-AKG supplement can help to increase both lifespan and healthspan (keeping you healthier as you age). Research on Ageing has shown that Ca-AKG can increase the health of later years in life by 40%, mainly by reducing over 30 signs of age-related frailty.

Did you know your biological age may not match your chronological age? For example, if you were born 40 years ago your chronological age is 40. Your biological age, however, depends on many factors, including genetics, lifestyle, nutrition, fitness, diseases and other conditions.  You can visit www.biological-age.com to check how the above factors may be influencing your biological age.

We have also included Aquamin, which is a unique multi-mineral complex derived from 100% red marine algae (mature form harvester), providing bio-active calcium, magnesium and 72 other trace minerals. This works alongside AKG to support ageing metabolism.

It should be noted that this product confers increasing benefits as we age so will be most beneficial for those over the age of 40.

Directions

  • Take 2-4 capsules daily with or after food.

Ingredients

  • Calcium Alpha Ketoglutarate 500mg (21% calcium)
  • Aquamin TG (a highly bioavailable source of minerals rich in calcium) 150mg*
  • Magnesium Stearate 10mg
  • Vegan capsule shell size 00

*contains unmodified maize (corn) starch

Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

Cautions

  • An upper limit of 2000mg of calcium daily is considered to be generally safe. Excessive levels of calcium intake can lead to adverse health conditions.
  • There is a small risk of interaction between calcium supplements and thiazide diuretics and calcium channel blockers. Calcium supplements may reduce the effectiveness of these medications, resulting in an increase in blood pressure. Calcium does not interact with other high blood pressure medication, such as ACE inhibitors, beta blockers or other diuretics. If unsure, check with your prescribing doctor or pharmacist before taking calcium.

Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, taking any medication or under medical supervision, please consult a doctor before use. Discontinue use and consult a doctor if adverse reactions occur.

Recommended for adults.

Description and Benefits

Other companies sell Arginine AKG, Ornithine AKG or Alpha Ketoglutaric Acid but it is only Calcium AKG that has been shown to provide health benefits.

Our Calcium AKG is anhydrous as opposed to monohydrate. This is because monohydrate has a water molecule and anhydrous doesn’t. This means that as well as anhydrous being the preferred nutrition grade as it is more soluble (your body can absorb it more effectively), it contains more of the active compounds.
