is an important amino acid known to be a powerful
stimulator of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) in the
pituitary gland. Like the amino acid arginine, ornithine
is nutritionally useful in helping the body promote the
growth of muscle and other tissue, strengthening the
body's natural defense system.

Ornithine is often combined with arginine and marketed
to body builders as a muscle-building supplement.
Laboratory studies have shown significant benefit
with L-ornithine. It increases both insulin and growth
hormone levels, which are needed to build and maintain
muscle during intensive physical training. Another
benefit of L-ornithine is that it can help combat the
muscle loss that is a normal part of the aging process.
As the body ages, it is less efficient at synthesizing
proteins and can’t regenerate muscle tissue as
quickly—strength and muscularity begin to decline. By
helping to elevate growth hormone levels, ornithine may
help speed the production of muscle tissue and offset
the effects of aging. Although both arginine and
ornithine help protect and build muscle mass, ornithine
is generally thought to be twice as effective at
stimulating growth hormone production as arginine, so a
combination supplement is not necessary if you wish to
use ornithine for this purpose.
Another benefit of L-ornithine is that it helps remove
toxic ammonia from the liver, and may reduce the effects
of cirrhosis of the liver and disorders associated with
liver malfunction. In one study, participants taking 18
grams of ornithine aspartate for two weeks showed
significant improvement in blood tests and liver
function compared to the placebo group.
Research has also shown that L-ornithine helps promote
healing and tissue repair. Clinical studies reported
that taking 10 grams of ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate (OKG)
each day helped reduce the length of hospital stays for
those recovering from surgery, generalized infections,
cancer, trauma, and burns.
ornithine is a nonessential amino acid, the body is able
to produce its own supply. You can also get ornithine
from your diet; meat, fish, dairy products, and eggs are
also good sources of this nutrient. Few people are
deficient in ornithine unless they are extremely
malnourished or have a disorder that disrupts the citric
acid cycle. However, supplementing to receive the
benefit of L-ornithine - increasing muscle content or
fighting the effects of aging - is not a bad idea.
