Ornithine

(See also Ornithine Alpha-Ketoglutarate)

Ornithine: Information

L-ornithine is a non-protein amino acid used by the body to synthesize L-proline, polyamines, and the non-essential amino acid L-arginine.

Ornithine's Health Benefits

Some research suggests that L-ornithine may have anabolic (muscle building) properties, and may help improve exercise performance. However, other research strongly supports that ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate (OKG), a similar substance, may better support these claims. L-ornithine may be useful in cases of trauma, to help support the immune system, and to help heal wounds. L-arginine production in trauma patients is greatly impaired, and administration of L-ornithine increases L-arginine levels, which aids the immune system during the recovery process.

Using Ornithine

Use as directed. L-ornithine supplements are available in capsule and powder form.

Side effects and Cautions:

High doses may cause gastrointestinal discomfort. Pregnant/nursing women should not take this supplement.
