Product Overview

Description
  • Fitness Amino Acid
  • Healthy Protein Metabolism
  • GMP Quality Assured
  • A Dietary Supplement

Ornithine is a non-essential amino acid that plays a central role in the urea cycle, functioning along with Arginine and Citrulline to rid the body of ammonia, a byproduct of protein metabolism. Because Ornithine is converted into Arginine, it can help maintain healthy Arginine levels in the body. Ornithine can also be converted into other amino acids, such as citrulline, proline, and glutamate, as well as creatine, an important muscular energy source.

Suggested Use

As a dietary supplement, take 3 capsules with juice or water on an empty stomach before exercise and at bedtime. Consider taking this product in combination with NOW L-Arginine, L-Citrulline and B-6.

Other Ingredients

Gelatin (capsule), rice flour and magnesium stearate (vegetable source).

Contains no sugar, salt, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, milk, egg, shellfish or preservatives.

Warnings

Do not eat freshness packet. Keep in bottle.

Kicked back on me ...

Posted by StarFire on Sep 19, 2015

Seemed to work for a short while for longer/better sleep. Then I started getting very fatigued... "Theoretically should reduce ammonia, but has oddly been noted to both increase and decrease ammonia concentrations. Requires more studies to investigate this topic" (From Examine Com) I took 1g of ALCAR (which is a very good quick ammonia reducer) and my fatigue and brain fog went away in rapidly!

Decreases brain swelling during hyponatremic encephalopathy

Posted by PurplePegasus on Jun 21, 2013

I have life-threatening brain disease and this is the supplement for that for me. I often wake up disoriented, confused, unable to speak intelligibly, and with a certain kind of brain pressure which I recognize as encephalopathy brain swelling caused by liver disease and lack of sodium, which my body does not retain. Unfortunately, as my illness has progressed and I fear might be at the last stages, I can no longer sleep thru the night, I wake up every 3-4 hrs to ingest electrolytes/sodium. When I wake up with the emergency symptoms, I need to take this on empty stomach ASAP. These symptoms are gone within a half hour. Using this in combo with electrolyte replenishment works a lot better than sodium only. As a bonus, this product has caused me quite a bit of weight loss and muscle gain, which is a feat in itself after cortico-steroids had catabolized my muscle tissue several years ago and nothing worked to regain muscle tone; also considering I cannot exercise due the hyponatremia (low blood sodium), this is pretty impressive. Please note: aminos must not be taken with milk, they must be taken on an empty stomach and a good 1/2 hr to 1 hr before meals and B6 is typically necessary to activate (although I usually take it by itself and have B6 later in the day. This works fine for me). Hope this review helps someone out there with the same condition.
