L-Ornithine 500 mg Vegetable Capsules contains the amino acid Ornithine, which influences growth hormones and is necessary for proper immune and liver function.Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are needed in several internal functions of the body. They are classified as "essential" or "non-essential", with essential amino acids meaning they cannot be manufactured by the body and must be supplied in the diet to maintain good all-round health. Amino acids can be further used by the body to create hormones, enzymes, neurotransmitters, antibodies and nutrient carriers. A suboptimal intake of the essential amino acids increases the body's need for the non-essential amino acids either through diet or supplementation. Foods that increase amino acid intake are meat, beans, cheese and eggs.
Ornithine is a non-essential amino acid. Ornithine plays a role in the ammonia concentrations in the blood.
L-Ornithine 500 mg is to be taken once a day, in an easy absorbable vegetable capsule.
