Ammonia Scavenger Created when amino groups are removed from amino acids, high nitrogen levels pose toxic traits; therefore, nitrogen is reduced through ammonia synthesis due to its properties as a cofactor. Production of ammonia, NH3, is also seen through the gluconeogenesic transition of amino acids to glucose and in the GI tract during protein digestion. Ammonia, toxic to the central nervous system, is predominately eliminated through the Urea Cycle.
Researchers believe genetic mutations found in the CBS, BHMT, MTHFR, MTR/MTRR, PEMT/BHMT, SUOX and NOS genes are thought to increase NH3 levels and reduce Urea Cycle function.2 The responsibility to neutralize excessive ammonia, due to an inhibited Urea Cycle, is met by the utilization of BH4. The reduction of available BH4 leads to a potential reduction of neurotransmitters and inflammation from NOS uncoupling, thus impacting an individual physically and emotionally.
Elevated glutamate, an excitatory neurotransmitter produced by alpha-ketoglutarate and NH3, has the potential to act as an excitotoxin that can cause neural damage and cell death. Abnormal ammonia levels can additionally cause, yet is not limited to, tremors, fatigue, enlarged liver, headaches, irritability, seizures and a lack of concentration.11 Ammonia Scavenger provides comprehensive nutritional support to the Urea Cycle, agents to absorb ammonia and the ability to support digestion in effort to create less ammonia.
