| Ornithine is a central part of the urea cycle
First, ammonia is converted into carbamoyl phosphate (phosphate-CONH2), which creates one half of urea. Ornithine is converted into a urea derivative at the δ (terminal) nitrogen by carbamoyl phosphate.Another nitrogen is added from aspartate, producing the denitrogenated fumarate, and the resulting arginine (a guanidinium compound) is hydrolysed back to ornithine, producing urea.
|Indications and Uses
| 1. L-Ornithine hcl is a non-essential amino acid. It is manufactured in the body utilizing L-Arginine which is an important precursor needed to manufacture Citrulline, Proline and Glutamic Acid.
2.L-Ornithine hcl is one of the growth hormone releasers used to increase lean muscle mass while decreasing body fat.
3. Another important function of L-Ornithine hcl is its use in detoxifying cells from harmful ammonia buildup.
