L-Ornithine 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. L-Ornithine is one of the growth hormone releasers used to increase lean muscle mass while decreasing body fat. Another important function of L-Ornithine is its use in detoxifying cells from harmful ammonia buildup.
L-Ornithine powder is water soluble and weighs about 2.4 grams per level measuring teaspoon. The taste is tangy-sweet. Capsules may contain less than 1% magnesium stearate, an inert ingredient used in the encapsulation process.
