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
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 synthesize nitric oxide, which
enables the arterial system to retain its youthful elasticity. Nitric
oxide also helps to produce endothelial relaxation factor, which is
needed by the arterial system to expand and contract with each
L-arginine may also help stimulate the immune system.69-72
or traumatic injury greatly increases the body's need for L-arginine, a
key building block to maintaining healthy tissue and bone. L-ornithine
may also be used for this purpose.73-84
