Description

Oxaloacetate (OAA) is a bioenergetic intermediate. As part of the Kreb’s Cycle, OAA helps turn carbohydrates, fats, and amino acids into utilizable energy as ATP. Glutamate is an excitatory neurotransmitter than can cause neuronal damage at high concentrations. OAA acts as a glutamate scavenger, and OAA supplementation may provide neuroprotection in the presence of excess glutamate. Added vitamin C assists in free radical scavenging.

Supplement Facts

Best Oxaloacetic Acid Supplement

Ingredient Profile

Oxaloacetate

Oxaloacetate is an intermediate in the citric acid (Kreb’s) cycle, which supplies energy and keeps cells healthy.

  • OAA is a glutamate scavenger, detoxifying harmful glutamate
  • This helps protect neurons to promote health brain and nervous system function
  • Enhances mitochondrial biogenesis
  • Increases longevity

 

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin with roles in antioxidation and immune health

  • Helps protect from colds by strengthening the immune system
  • Speeds recovery from infection
  • Repairs cartilage, bones, and teeth by facilitating collagen production
  • Protects the body from free radicals

 

FAQs

Q: What is the best way to use Oxaloacetate™?

A: As a dietary supplement, consume 1 serving (1 capsule) of Oxaloacetate™ once daily.

 

Q: How does Oxaloacetate reduce glutamate?

A: Oxaloacetate is a key substrate for the glutamate-oxaloacetate transaminase enzyme. Only with oxaloacetate can the enzyme convert glutamate into 2-ketoglutarate (a ketone body that can be converted to alpha-ketoglutarate, another Kreb’s cycle intermediate), aspartate (amino acid), and alanine (amino acid).
