L-Ornithine

Plain Language Summary

Alcohol produces excess ammonia in the blood stream. L-Ornithine can help recycle ammonia and reduce symptoms of fatigue.

Summary

Alcohol increased ammonia in circulation both by enhancing absorption from the gut and as a byproduct of increased gluconeogensis. Excess ammonia can cause fatigue and mental confusion. L-Ornithine can reduce circulating ammonia by converting it to readily excretable urea. L-Ornithine has been directly shown to reduce the symptoms of a hangover.
