What is L-Ornithine? L-ornithine is an amino acid created in the body from L-arginine metabolism. In rare cases, certain people may become deficient in L-ornithine, which is typically found in fish, meat and dairy products. Because L-ornithine deficiencies are unlikely for most people, you should consult your doctor before taking this supplement to discuss the proper dosage and potential health risks.
Health Benefits of L-Ornithine? If you’re recovering from a severe physical trauma, major surgery or debilitating illness, your body might not produce the normal amounts of L-ornithine and glutamine, according to the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. A report published in 1986 in the “Journal of the American College of Nutrition” determined that during this time of recovery, you could become deficient in L-ornithine and require a supplement, notes the University of Michigan Health System. The same is true if you’re recovering from pregnancy or malnutrition. A study of hospital patients overcoming severe illnesses that was published in the “Journal Current Opinion in Clinical Nutrition; Metabolic Care” in 1998 found that L-ornithine appears to inhibit cortisone. Cortisone is a hormone that’s typically elevated when your body isn’t using proteins efficiently and is essentially breaking down muscle. L-ornithine appears to stimulate the opposite type of bodily activity, encouraging your body to build muscle and utilize proteins consumed in your diet.
Potential Side Effects/Risks: If you take more than 10 g daily of ornithine, you may experience gastrointestinal problems, warns the University of Michigan Health System. These stomach irritations can include cramps and diarrhea. Additionally, no safe dosage is established for young children or for people who have liver and kidney diseases
Suggested Dosage of L-Ornithine
The typical dosage of ornithine supplements is 5 to 10 g per day, often in combination with the amino acid arginine.
