Glutamine or Ornithine Alpha-Ketoglutarate

Glutamine is the most abundant free amino acid in human muscle and plasma, is utilized at high rates by rapidly dividing cells including your immune system, and provides energy and optimal conditions for RNA and DNA biosynthesis.( 1) Six amino acids are metabolized (made) in resting muscle. They are leucine, isoleucine, valine, asparagine, aspartate and glutamate. These amino acids provide the amino groups for synthesis of other amino acids such as glutamine and alanine.( 2)

ORNITHINE

Tagged:  

Ornithine is a non-essential amino acid not found in proteins. It is produced in the body from arginine and serves as the precursor to Citruline, Proline and Glutamic Acid. Lysine, an antagonist of Arginine, also prevents uptake of Ornithine. Ornithine helps to prompt the release of growth hormone, insulin and other hormones, which promotes the metabolization of excess body fat. The effect is enhanced when combined with Arginine and Carnitine. A major difference between Ornithine and Arginine is that Ornithine actually enters the cell whereas Arginine does not.
