Arginine & Ornithine: L-arginine is a semi-essential amino acid involved in numerous areas of human biochemistry, including ammonia detoxification, hormone secretion, and immune modulation. Arginine is also well known as a precursor to nitric oxide (NO), a key component of endothelial-derived relaxing factor, an endogenous messenger molecule involved in a variety of endothelium-dependent physiological effects in the cardiovascular system.
L-ornithine is a metabolite of arginine in the body, formed as a byproduct of the action of the arginase enzyme on arginine. L-arginine is required for the body to synthesise nitric oxide, which enables the arterial system to retain its youthful elasticity. Nitric oxide also helps to produce an endothelial-derived relaxing factor, which is needed by the arterial system to expand and contract with each heartbeat.
L-arginine may also help maintain the health of the immune system.
L-arginine is a key building block to maintaining healthy tissue and bone. L-ornithine may also be used for this purpose.
Quality Assured Non-GMO A Dietary Supplement Arginine & Ornithine this product from NOW® Sports combines two essential amino acids into one optimal supplement that is ideal for active individuals.
Arginine is required for proper elimination of urea from the body, which occurs through a critical metabolic cycle that detoxifies the body of nitrogen compounds that are normal by products of protein metabolism. Ornithine is synthesised from Arginine and is a precursor of citrulline, pro-line and glutamic acid. Both of these amino acids are popular with athletes and other active individuals.
