L-arginine is an essential amino acid. L-ornithine may be used as an alternative since it metabolizes to L-arginine in the body. L-arginine is required for the body to synthesize nitric oxide, which enables the arterial system to retain its youthful elasticity. Nitric oxide also helps to produce endothelial relaxation factor, which is needed by the arterial system to expand and contract with each heartbeat.21-33
Surgical or traumatic injury greatly increases the body's need for L-arginine, a key building block to repair damaged tissue and bone. Because of its role in repair of tissues, L-arginine helps to promote optimal healing of wounds. L-ornithine may also be used for this purpose.42-53
