3 Amino Acids—Ornithine, Arginine and Citrulline
The Tri-Amino nutrient injection combines three clinically researched amino acids—ornithine, arginine and citrulline. All three of these amino acids are involved in the urea cycle and also key contributors to nitric oxide production.
Ornithine is distinct from arginine and citrulline as it is not involved with nitric oxide production, but ornithine buffers ammonia, reducing fatigue associated with exercise. When your cells break down nitrogen-containing compounds, such as proteins, they produce ammonia as a byproduct and can be toxic if not removed.
Ornithine is called a nonessential amino acid because your body can manufacture it. As part of the urea cycle, your liver cells produce ornithine from the amino acid arginine, which you consume in many different foods. Dietary sources of ornithine include meat, fish, eggs and dairy products, and especially good sources of arginine include turkey, peanuts, soybeans, egg whites and sesame seeds. Some studies suggest that taking ornithine prior to consuming alcohol may reduce hangovers, due to alcohol increasing ammonia levels. This may be particular to those with decreased liver function or those with alcohol sensitivity.
Your kidneys convert ornithine into arginine, another amino acid that benefits your body in several ways. Arginine is the only substrate in the biosynthesis of nitric oxide (NO), which plays critical roles in important physiological processes in the human body including neurotransmission, vasorelaxation (dilation of blood vessels), and cytotoxicity and immunity. Arginine is essential for the muscle cells to produce creatine, a compound needed for muscle contraction. It also facilitates the release of growth hormone, insulin, glucagon, and prolactin— important hormones for metabolic drive.
In the cardiovascular system, due to the vasorelaxation, exogenous arginine can cause a reduction in systolic and diastolic pressures in patients with hypertension, provide a positive effect on cerebral circulation and can enhance blood flow to males with erectile dysfunction. Arginine has also been found to support a reduction in total cholesterol and low density lipoproteins (LDL).
Citrulline, like arginine, is important in vasodilation—the widening of blood vessels, resulting from relaxation of smooth muscle cells within the vessel walls— especially in the large arteries and veins and smaller arterioles.
The endothelium (inner lining) of blood vessels uses nitric oxide to signal the surrounding smooth muscle to relax. This results in a relaxing of the blood vessels, and increased blood flow. The benefits of citrulline stem primarily from its ability to increase plasma levels of Arginine. In the body, citrulline is converted to the amino acid arginine, thus raising plasma and tissue levels of arginine and enhancing nitric oxide production.
The Urea Cycle is a system in the liver that converts nitrogenous wastes into urea and eliminates them from the body. The production and removal of urea is essential for the elimination of ammonia and toxic nitrogen metabolites. Ammonia can be extremely toxic to cells and excessive levels can cause serious symptoms and disease. While urea cycle disorders are often caused by genetic diseases; deficiencies of arginine or ornithine triggered by conditions such as illness or stress can cause increases in blood ammonia levels. Even in healthy athletes, the buildup of ammonia can lead to extreme fatigue and dementia because it reduces glycogen formation, and inhibits the energy cycle.
Nitric Oxide Production
Nitric oxide is integral to relaxing blood vessels. Nitric oxide helps the blood vessels maintain their flexibility so that the blood flow is unrestricted. This, in turn, helps maintain healthy blood pressure and improved blood flow to organ systems. Nitric oxide helps prevent blood clots because it prevents blood aggregation or platelets from becoming sticky. When platelets are not sticky they can move in a single file through the capillaries. Additionally, nitric oxide works as an antioxidant that reduces the possibility of immune cells adhering to artery walls. This helps keep down inflammation, which most health professionals agree is a major cause of the plaque formation that contributes to atherosclerosis.
