l-ornithine remedy for ammonia detox Hi all, As a newcomer, I don't know if this has been discussed elsewhere in this forum, but according to Dr. Hulda Clark and to an MD from the Univ. of Chicago, nicknamed 'Dr. Bob' on the site I visited, the amino acid l-ornithine "mops up ammonia" in the body. Just Google: 'ornithine ammonia sleep' and you'll find a good amount of material on the subject. In this regard, visit the NOW Foods website, type 'ornithine' in their site search window and check out the number of user testimonials about how positively ornithine has influenced peoples' sleeping patterns. Dr. Clark claims ammonia build up in the brain is a major cause of insomnia. After all, she points out, what do they use to 'wake people up' in an emergency? Why, 'smelling salts' of course, made with ammonia. I am not affiliated with Now Foods in any way, it's just that their site contains a large number of testimonials about the difference ornithine has made for getting a better night's sleep.
