Life Extension Arginine Ornithine Powder Can Increase Growth Hormone Production
L-arginine is a semi-essential amino acid which is involved in numerous functions of the human body's biochemistry. These functions include ammonia detoxification, hormone secretion, and immune modulation. Arginine is also well known as being a precursor to nitric oxide (NO). Nitric oxide is a key component of endothelial-derived relaxing factor, an endogenous messenger molecule involved in a variety of endothelium-dependent physiological effects in the cardiovascular system.
L-ornithine is a metabolite of arginine in your 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 can also aid in the production of endothelial-derived relaxing factor, which is needed by your arteries to expand and contract with each heartbeat. L-arginine can also help stimulate your immune system. Surgical or traumatic injury will drastically increase your body’s need for L-arginine. L-arginine is a key building block to maintaining healthy tissue and bone. L-ornithine can also be used for this same purpose. Some studies have suggested that either independently or combined, arginine and ornithine appear to stimulate the production of the growth hormone (GH) based on the increase in strength and muscle mass that was produced during extreme physical activity. Other research has shown ornithine’s ability to stimulate GH release. And yet another study shows that a combination of ornithine with acetyl-L-carnitine enhances the GH release feedback loop. However, studies suggest that low doses of L-arginine and/or L-ornithine are unlikely to effect GH release. A minimum dose of L-arginine to promote GH release is probably 5 to 9 grams.
