What is Swanson L-Ornithine Amino Acid?

You may already know that over 60% of the body is made up of water, but did you realise that 20% of the body is protein? Protein plays an undeniably vital role in almost all of our biological processes. Why is this important? Because without amino acids, we can have no proteins.

A massive proportion of our muscles, cells and body tissue is made up of amino acids, they literally give certain cells their structure. Within those cells they are responsible for transporting and storing our body's nutrients; all while dictating the functions of our glands, organs, arteries and tendons.

Without amino acids we can't heal or repair tissue and we can't remove certain waste products from our body, that is where Swanson L-Ornithine Amino Acid comes in.

L-Ornithine is simply made in the body from the precursor amino acid arginine. It is crucial for removal of bodily wastes generated by the metabolism. Some studies even show that it is equally important for creating energy. As a non-proteinogen, it finds its role in the urea cycle where it detoxifies and helps maintain liver health.

Ordinarily your body can produce this essential amino acid by itself, but under certain circumstances such as added stress, illness and even malaise, your supply can drop. Without it, your body can begin to store unwanted waste products and the liver can become over toxified. Swanson L-Ornithine Amino Acid makes supports your health by helping prevent such issues.

What is Swanson L-Ornithine Amino Acid used for?

Whilst Swanson L-Ornithine Amino Acid doesn't actually belong to the twenty standard amino acids, it is incredibly important when it works in conjunction with arginine. Primarily in the removal of ammonia. You may know ammonia as the odorous chemical which occasionally gives urine its odour.

If you have noticed the smell of ammonia in either your sweat or urine, you may be suffering from a L-Ornithine deficiency. The end products of protein metabolism (like nitrogen) which we excrete naturally are a strong sign that our body is detoxifying effectively. The outcomes of which are unanimously positive:

  • Healthier sleep patterns
  • Better liver function
  • Accelerated wound healing
  • Promoties HGH (Human growth hormone) to support muscle building.
  • Can even increase erectile functionality
