L-Ornithine 500mg L-Ornithine 500mg

NOW FOODS L-Ornithine is a dietary supplement with pure ornithine, which is necessary for the normal process of the urea cycle. In the supplement, ornithine is present in the form of an amino acid which plays a key role in the urea cycle. The amino acid, cooperating with arginine and citrulline, enables the normal functioning of the organism by neutralising and removing the harmful excess of ammonia, which is a by-product of protein metabolism.

Since ornithine supports arginine conversion, it can help to maintain the right level of arginine in the organism. Ornithine can also be converted to other amino acids, like proline, citrulline and glutamate, as well as muscle creatine, which are important sources of energy.

Ornithine is an organic chemical compound of α-amino acid group which does not belong to the main 20 α-amino acids that build proteins, but still plays an important role in the ornithine (urea) cycle. It is one of the basic amino acids. It occurs in live organisms, takes part in metabolism and is created from arginine under the influence of enzyme activity.

Versatile role in the organism
Ornithine is one of the essential amino acids, synthesised by the organism. Together with citrulline and arginine, it plays an important role in the neutralisation of harmful ammonia and supports the processes of organism detoxification. The compound also improves the processes of protein, carbohydrate and fat metabolism as well as reduces liver cell damage.

Hormones
Apart from its participation in the urea cycle and the support in liver regeneration, ornithine also exhibits the properties of stimulating the organism to produce the growth hormone and reinforces insulin's anabolic effect.

The nervous system
Ornithine's very important role is affecting the improvement of the functioning of the nervous system. Research shows that ornithine supplementation efficiently reduces fatigue and irritability and facilitates falling asleep, which has a great influence on organism regeneration in the recovery period after exercise.

Supplementation in sports
Ornithine can be used as a single-component supplement, a pre-workout supplement, a supplement with ornithine aspartate and liver-regenerating drugs. Regardless of the type of the product, the compound exhibits, among other effects, the ability to increase the use of arginine in nitric oxide synthesis. Research shows the ornithine can actively affect the speed of building dry muscle and increase the sportsperson's strength.

What do academic studies say?
Interestingly, apart from ornithine's above-mentioned task of protecting the liver, some studies seem to prove the effect of the compound on the nervous system. The first test was conducted on mice, which were noticeably less disturbed when confronted with an uncomfortable situation. The lack of reliable research material prevented the tests from being publicised.

With time, tests on people began. 24 men aged from 30 to 60 years old were engaged in the undertaking. The participants were divided into two groups - a control group (who were administered placebo) and a study group (who took 400 mg of pure ornithine before sleep). All participants were chosen based on specific symptoms: excessive feeling of fatigue and problems with sleep resulting from excessive stress.

The results of the experiment prove the beneficial effect of ornithine on people who have problems with falling asleep. The group who took the tested product fell asleep faster, the sleep was longer, and the participants themselves appeared less fatigued and irritable. The cause of such results was the drop in the level of cortisol, that is the stress hormone.

To sum up, NOW FOODS L-Ornithine is a pure dosage of natural ornithine. Its supplementation can have a very positive effect on the organism, particularly when it comes to improving the functioning of muscles, the nervous system and the urinary system. It can be helpful in excreting the excess of harmful ammonia, thanks to which it has a detoxifying effect on the organism.

Ornithine

Information

Ornithine belongs to endogenous non-protein amino acids, it is produced by transformation of the amino acid arginine and glutamic acid. It is an intermediate in a metabolic cycle urea synthesis from ammonia and carbon dioxide. The degradation of amino acids in the liver making the first removes nitrogen (alpha amino groups are transferred to alpha-ketoglutarate) and leads to the formation of glutamate, transformed into the form of ammonium ions. It is necessary to neutralize the highly toxic ammonia, which is carried out by aspartate, creating argininosuccinate. A further phase of change is the formation of arginine and fumarate. Then the cycle is repeated. In the transition process, ornithine is the starting material for the enzyme that catalyses a particular stage of the urea synthesis. It is also an acceptor for the synthesis of citrulline. Ornithine, through the synthesis of polyamines, has a regenerating effect on the liver.
Ornithine is available as mono-preparation (often included with the other ingredients of supporting liver function) and
multi-component supplements containing ornithine aspartate. Indispensable in sports supplementation in no-boosters (pre-workout products) as it stores the arginine, it slows down its expenditure and allows for more effective use in the synthesis of nitric oxide. Available in the full range at: www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: There are no specific standards for daily consumption. 200 - 1500 mg / 24h, commonly used in supplementation.

Chloride

Information

Chlorine (chemical element from the group of halogens) - in the natural form of gas it is poisonous and water-soluble (until recently used as a disinfectant in the water supply system, now replaced by fluorination). It is chemically active element. It is used in the form of sodium chloride (NaCl) and potassium (KCl). It participates in the process of digestion and maintains acid-base balance in the body, removes toxic products of metabolism in the liver (antitoxin). Natural source of chlorine for the body is salt and bladderwrack.
Chlorine deficiency can occur due to excessive sweating, vomiting, causing digestive tract problems. It also causes loss of hair and teeth.
Excess chlorine, for example. Drink excessive amounts of chlorinated water, destroys bacterial flora and vitamin E.
Dosage: Daily dose should not exceed 15 grams.
