Ornithine
Chemical Properties: N/A
Physical Properties: N/A

Ornithine is one of the products of the action of the enzyme arginase on L-arginine, creating urea. Therefore, ornithine is a central part of the urea cycle, which allows for the disposal of excess nitrogen.

Ornithine is not an amino acid coded for by DNA, and in that sense, is not involved in protein synthesis. However, in mammalian non-hepatic tissues, the main use of the urea cycle is in arginine biosynthesis, so as an intermediate in metabolic processes, ornithine is quite important.

Ornithine, via the action of ornithine decarboxylase (E.C. 4.1.1.17), is the starting point for the synthesis of polyamines such as putrescine.

In bacteria, such as E. coli, ornithine can be synthesized from L-glutamate (see reference below).

Ornithine is a non-essential amino acid and is manufactured by the body, the amino acid, arginine, is metabolized during urea production and is required by the body as it acts as a precursor of citrulline, proline and glutamic acid.

Ornithine is required for
Ornithine is important since it induce the release of growth hormone in the body, which in turn helps with fat metabolism. It is further required for a properly functioning immune system and liver and assists in ammonia detoxification and liver rejuvenation.

It is also of use in healing and repairing skin and tissue and is found in both these body parts. There are some unsupported claims that ornithine promotes muscle building, but this has not been proven.

Deficiency of ornithine
Since the body can produce ornithine, a deficiency of this non-essential amino acid is rare.

Dosage
The dosage listed is the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA), but be aware that this dosage is the minimum that you require per day, to ward off serious deficiency of this particular nutrient. In the therapeutic use of this nutrient, the dosage is usually increased considerably, but the toxicity level must be kept in mind.

In human research involving ornithine, several grams are typically used per day, sometimes combined with arginine.

Toxicity and symptoms of high intake
There are no reported side effects from the use of ornithine, but children, pregnant or nursing mothers, or anybody suffering from schizophrenia should NOT take L-ornithine.

Best used with
Arginine is needed for the production of ornithine and should be supplied in adequate quantities to the body. Carnitine also enhances the effect of this nutrient.

When more may be required
People recouping after surgery and athletes may benefit from this nutrient.

Food sources of ornithine
The body can manufacture ornithine but is abundant in protein foods such as meat, fish, dairy, and eggs.

L-ORNITHINE is a non-essential amino acid and is manufactured by the body, the amino acid, ARGININE, is metabolized during urea production and is required by the body as it acts as a precursor of citrulline, proline and glutamic acid. L-ORNITHINE is important since it induce the release of growth hormone in the body, which in turn helps with fat metabolism. It is further required for a properly functioning immune system and liver and assists in ammonia detoxification and liver rejuvenation. It is also of use in healing and repairing skin and tissue and is found in both these body parts. There are some unsupported claims that L-ORNITHINE promotes muscle building, but this has not been proven.

Key Benefits
  • Glutamine production
  • Protein synthesis, especially for Arginine, Proline and Polyamines.
  • Metabolic reaction to trauma
  • Increasing nitrogen balance, which is especially necessary for burn patients and those with low nitrogen levels.
  • Stimulating the immune system.
  • Beneficial metabolic properties for wound and post surgical healing.
  • Anabolic effects on muscle catabolism.
  • Athletes who require anabolic results.
