L-Arginine; 1200 mgs.
R-Gene 10 (Pharmacia Corp.)
L-arginine is a protein amino acid present in the proteins of all life forms. It is classified as a semi-essential or conditionally essential amino acid. This means that under normal circumstances the body can synthesize sufficient L-arginine to meet physiological demands. There are, however, conditions where the body cannot. L-arginine is essential for young children and for those with certain rare genetic disorders in which synthesis of the amino acid is impaired. Some stress conditions that put an increased demand on the body for the synthesis of L-arginine include trauma (including surgical trauma), sepsis and burns. Under these conditions, L-arginine becomes essential, and it is then very important to ensure adequate dietary intake of the amino acid to meet the increased physiological demands created by these situations.
L-arginine, even when it is not an essential amino acid as defined above, is a vital one. In addition to participating in protein synthesis, it plays a number of other roles in the body. These include the detoxification of ammonia formed during the nitrogen catabolism of amino acids via the formation of urea. In addition, L-arginine is a precursor in the formation of nitric oxide, creatine, polyamines, L-glutamate, L-proline, agmatin (a possible neurotransmitter in the brain) and the arginine-containing tetrapeptide tuftsin, believed to be an immunomodulator. L-arginine is a glycogenic amino acid; it can be converted to D-glucose and glycogen if needed by the body or it can be catabolized to produce biological energy.
L-arginine, when administered in high doses, stimulates pituitary release of growth hormone and prolactin and pancreatic release of glucagon and insulin. Intravenous L-arginine may be used as an aid in the evaluation of problems with growth and stature that may be due to growth hormone deficiency. Intravenous arginine hydrochloride may be used as a fourth-line agent in the treatment of severe metabolic alkalosis. L-arginine is also used as an immunonutrient in enteral and parenteral nutrition to help improve the immune status in those suffering from sepsis, burns and trauma.
L-arginine is predominately synthesized in the kidney. It is a key intermediate in the Krebs-Henseleit urea cycle. L-ornithine and L-citrulline are precursors in the synthesis of L-arginine, and L-arginine is converted to urea and L-ornithine via the enzyme arginase. The portion of L-arginine that is not converted to urea enters the circulation, and is distributed to the various tissues and metabolized as discussed above. A much smaller amount of L-arginine is produced in the liver.
The typical dietary intake of L-arginine is 3.5 to 5 grams daily. Most dietary L-arginine comes from plant and animal proteins. Small amounts of free L-arginine are found in vegetable juices and fermented foods, such as miso and yogurt. Soy protein and other plant proteins are richer in L-arginine than are animal proteins, which are richer in lysine. It is thought that the possible hypocholesterolemic effect of soy protein is due, at least in part, to the higher L-arginine content in this protein.
L-arginine is a basic amino acid with the molecular formula C6H14N4O2 and with a molecular weight of 174.20 daltons. It has 3 pKs: pK1=2.18, pK2=9.09 and pK3=13.2. Therefore, it carries a positive charge at physiological pH. The stereoisomer of L-arginine, D-arginine, does not have any biological activity, as far as we know. L-arginine is also known as 2-amino-5-guanidinovaleric acid and (S)-2-amino-5-[(aminoiminomethyl)amino] pentaenoic acid. Its one-letter abbreviation is R. It is also abbreviated as Arg. The terms L-arginine and arginine are frequently used interchangeably. The structural formula of L-arginine is as follows:
L-arginine shows promise in the treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease (including atherosclerosis, hypertension, hyperlipidemia and angina pectoris), in the treatment of some forms of male infertility and some kidney disorders and it is helpful in accelerating wound healing in some circumstances. It has demonstrated some positive immune-modulating and anticancer effects. There is preliminary evidence that it could be helpful in some men with erectile dysfunction and in some others with migraine, liver disease and primary ciliary dyskinesia.
L-arginine is an essential amino acid that has been show to lower blood pressure, treat Hypertension and promote wound healing. Athletes have also found L-Arginine to be beneficial for muscle recovery and Growth Hormone Release. L-ornithine may be used as an alternative since it metabolizes to L-arginine in the body. If taken in doses larger that those normally obtained from your diet or if taken on an empty stomach, these amino acids may be helpful for:
Hypertension: L-arginine is required for the body to synthesize nitric oxide, which enables the arterial system to retain its youthful elasticity, thus alleviating hypertension in some people. Nitric oxide also helps to produce endothelial relaxation factor, which is needed by the arterial system to expand and contract with each heartbeat. The inability of arteries to expand and contract is a major cause of hypertension associated with aging. If you decide to try L-arginine to lower blood pressure, ask your physician to reduce your antihypertensive medication while you are increasing your intake of arginine. The suggested dose of L-arginine as a blood pressure lowering agent is 4500 mg three times daily. For some people, L-arginine does not lower blood pressure, so it’s crucial that your blood pressure be monitored to ensure that it is under control. L-ornithine is not a suitable alternative for this purpose since quick synthesis of nitric oxide is required.
Growth Hormone: L-arginine and L-ornithine have been shown to promote natural growth hormone (GH) release from the pituitary gland. GH promotes healthy anabolic metabolism throughout the body, helping to maintain youthful protein synthesis within cells. Aging causes a decline in protein synthesis that results in many of the degenerative diseases of aging, which may be partially corrected by enhancing GH serum levels. You can measure the GH enhancing effects of L-arginine/L-ornithine by measuring your blood levels of somatomedin C (IGF-1), a GH metabolite. L-ornithine is generally considered to be twice as potent as L-arginine for the purpose of GH release, so L-ornithine alone or in combination with L-arginine enables a person to take a smaller amount and still achieve the same GH releasing effects. Wound Healing: Surgical or traumatic injury greatly increases the body’s need for L-arginine, a key building block to repair damaged tissue and bone. Numerous studies document enhanced wound healing in response to L-arginine supplementation. L-ornithine may also be used for this purpose.
Heart attack and heart patients may want to avoid use.
L-Lysine; 1200 mgs.
L-Lysine TRADE NAMES
Free Form L-Lysine (Thompson), L-Lysine Premium (Ultimate Nutrition).
L-lysine is protein amino acid. It is classified as an essential amino acid for humans and therefore must be supplied in the diet. Certain proteins, such as those found in meat, poultry and milk are rich in L-lysine. Proteins found in grains, cereals and their products are typically low in L-lysine. For example, wheat is low in L-lysine; wheat germ, however, is rich in L-lysine. Small amounts of free L-lysine are found in vegetables, vegetable juices and in such fermented foods as miso and yogurt.
L-lysine's popularity as a nutritional supplement arose as a result of some studies suggesting that the amino acid may decrease the recurrence rate of some infected with herpes simplex virus.
L-lysine is a basic amino acid and carries a positive charge at physiological pH. It is a solid substance that is very soluble in water. L-lysine has three pKa's: pKa1=2.20, pKa2=8.90 and pKa3=10.28. L-lysine is marketed as a nutritional substance, either as L-lysine monohydrochloride or as the free base, L-lysine. The molecular weight of L-lysine is 146.19 daltons, its molecular formula is C6H14N2O2, and its structural formula is:
Supplemental L-lysine has putative anti-herpes simplex virus activity. There is preliminary research suggesting that it may have some anti-osteoporotic activity.
Lysine may reduce the recurrence rate of herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections and/or reduce their severity in some, though research results have been mixed with respect to this putative benefit. Very preliminary research indicates a possible role for lysine in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.
Pregnant women and nursing mothers should only consider using supplemental L-lysine if their diets are low in this amino acid. They should avoid supplemental L-lysine for other reasons.
Proteins such as casein, which are high in L-lysine relative to L-arginine, are associated with elevated cholesterol levels. Those with hypercholesterolemia who are interested in taking supplemental L-lysine should be aware of this. MP> Those with hepatic or renal failure should exercise caution in the use of supplemental L-lysine.
L-Lysine is an essential amino acid that cannot be manufactured by the human body. Our only source of L-Lysine is through diet or supplementation. The human body benefits from L-Lysine because it promotes absorption of calcium, collagen formation, and production of enzymes.
Amino Acids & Your Health
Amino acids are the essential building blocks of protein that promote growth and maintenance of all body tissues. Eleven amino acids can be manufactured by the body while the other nine must come from diet. These nine amino acids are known as the essential amino acids. Although nine amino acids are essential all 20 are important to maintain good health. Essential or non essential simply refers to the body’s ability to produce an amino acid by itself or if it is needed through diet.

L-Ornithine; 900 mgs. TRADE NAMES
L-Ornithine is available from numerous manufacturers generically; branded products include OKG (Nature's Bounty).
L-Ornithine is a nonprotein amino acid. It is used in the body in the biosynthesis of L-arginine, L-proline and polyamines. L-Ornithine is a basic amino acid, positively charged at physiological pH. It is also known as alpha,delta-diaminovaleric acid and 2,5-diaminopentanoic acid.
L-Ornithine has putative anabolic, immunomodulatory and wound-healing activities.
MECHANISM OF ACTION
L-Ornithine may at very high doses—around 30 grams—stimulate the pituitary release of growth hormone by virtue of its metabolism to L-arginine (see L-Arginine).
Burn injury and other traumas affect the status of L-arginine in the various tissues of the body. De novo synthesis of L-arginine during these conditions is probably not sufficient for normal immune function, nor for normal protein synthesis. Under these conditions, L-ornithine may have immunomodulatory and wound-healing activities, again, by virtue of its metabolism to L-arginine.
It is claimed that ornithine has anabolic effects and improves athletic performance, that it has wound-healing effects and is immuno-enhancing. There is little support for these claims. There is at least preliminary evidence, however, that the better-studied ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate may have some of these activities. Inasmuch as ornithine is metabolized to arginine, which also demonstrates some of these effects, it is possible that ornithine, when more thoroughly studied, might exhibit some similar effects. See Arginine and Ornithine Alpha-Ketoglutarate.
A non-essential amino acid. Ornithine can be fabricated from Arginine, is very similar in structure. Most effective used in a stack. Take 2 - 3 grams per day.
Ornithine is similar in structure to Arginine. It is also widely used to boost HGH. According to authors Dirk Pearson and Sandy Shaw, it has double the effectiveness of Arginine at the same dosage. The usual dosage is 2 - 3 grams.
L-Ornithine, an amino acid, is manufactured by the body when another amino acid, Arginine, is metabolized during the production of urea (a constituent of urine). Animal research has suggested that L-Ornithine, along with Arginine, may promote muscle-building activity in the body by increasing levels of anabolic (growth-promoting) hormones such as insulin and growth hormone. L-Ornithine is also said to increase the metabolism of fat. L-Ornithine can be changed into L-Arginine in the body and it functions similarly in growth hormone release. Should not be given to children unless prescribed by a physician.
L-Ornithine is an amino acid that has been used by fitness enthusiasts for years. L - Ornithine is a non-essential amino acid and is manufactured by the body. Since the body can produce Ornithine, a deficiency of this non-essential amino acid is rare and it is abundant in protein foods such as meat, fish, dairy, and eggs.
Ornithine is important since it:
Induces the release of growth hormone in the body, which in turn helps with fat metabolism Required for a properly functioning immune system and liver. Assists in ammonia detoxification and liver Rejuvenation Helps healing and repairing skin and tissue and is found in both these body parts. Unsupported claims that Ornithine promotes muscle building, but this has not been proven. Helpful for people recouping after surgery and athletes may benefit from this nutrient
