ornithine – nonessential amino acid

2nd October 2018PureNakedVegan

ornithine –  technically called “L-ornithine – non-proteinogenic amino acid – anti-fatigue

Nonprotein amino acid which is quite unique meaning that it doesn’t group up to form proteins in the body.

Works with arginine in the urea cycle where arginine and ornithine turn into each other in order to balance out urea and ammonia levels in the body.

Reducing Fatigue

**Ammonia is packaged up as carbamoyl phosphate, binds to ornithine, and BOOM citrulline is the result.**

can reduce fatigue thought to be related to reducing ammonia.

When ammonia gets elevated it can cause oxidative damage and can impair the ability of a cell to make energy as efficiently as it did before.

Potential use for ornithine

The potential for more mental than physical results like improve fatigue associated with overwork, and alongside that improve mood while reducing irritability.

Foods containing ornithine

This primarily includes meat, eggs and dairy products.

Nuts – coconut, peanuts and walnuts.

Grains – oats and wheat

Beans – carob and soybeans
