NOW Foods L-Ornithine 500 mg
Description & Features
Integral to both the cycle to remove ammonia from the body as well as the building of muscle and blood flow, anyone can gain the benefits of this supplement. Ornithine is a non-essential amino acid that plays a central role in the
urea cycle, functioning along with Arginine and Citrulline to rid the
body of ammonia, a byproduct of protein metabolism. Because Ornithine is
converted into Arginine, it can help to maintain healthy Arginine
levels in the body.
Ornithine can also be converted into other amino
acids, such as citrulline, proline, and glutamate, as well as creatine,
an important muscular energy source. Both Ornithine
and Arginine are known to support the production of Nitric Oxide (NO).
NO plays a fundamental role in vascular function and blood flow.
