Ornithine is one of the amino acids that aids in the production of growth hormones. Bodybuilders commonly use ornithine and arginine (another amino acid) together as a growth hormone stimulant. This growth and muscle building amino acid helps promote the metabolism of excess body fat. This effect is enhanced if combined with arginine and carnitine.
