Is there any contraindication about using both l-arginine based creams/gels and viagra (sildenafil) (100mg) together?

Is there any contraindication about using both l-arginine based creams/gels and viagra (sildenafil) (100mg) together?

Likely OK for you: L-arginine taken by mouth ; likely if cream is absorbed into skin will liberate some nitrous oxide which will increase blood flow to the penis. Ur already taking quite a high dose of viagra (sildenafil) for a young man. My suggestion would be to try l-arginine by itself first. L-argenine will produce nitrous oxide whereas viagra (sildenafil) will block breakdown of nitrous oxide. Also suggest check with your DVT dr.

What is l-arginine good for?

Arginine: ....Is something your body normally makes, but you can be deficient if you don't have enough of the building blocks. Symptoms of deficiency include poor wound healing, hair loss, skin rash, constipation, and fatty liver. There is some evidence it may be useful for claudication (pain in your legs with exercise due to poor circulation). It's used for lots of other things, but without good evidence.

Can teenagers take l arginine?

Can teenagers take l arginine?

Wouldn't recommend: Protein supplementation is not the greatest idea in teens. It really is much better for them to get their nutrition through food intake. These supplements are not well regulated and one can never be sure you are taking what they say. Also, protein supplements are stressful to developing kidneys. If you teen is wrestler ,body builder it is best to get the protein with meats, eggs, dairy, nuts.

Are there any differences between the types of l-arginine?

unlikely: Assuming that the source of the l-arginines that you are considering are reliable, then this is a basic Amino Acid which should be the same whatever the source. There is always a risk with unregulated products like this that you are getting less than the label says, or some hopefully benign adulterant to save money for the manufacturer.

Can I take L arginine 1000 mg and ginseng complex together?

Can I take L arginine 1000 mg and ginseng complex together?

Yes: Of course. Ginseng is a general tonic that can raise testosterone levels and enhance male sexual function. L-arginine is an amino acid with many benefits including raising nitric oxide levels, thus dilating blood vessels and enhancing erections, sometimes called Nature's Viagra. These are often combined (along with other ingredients) in supplements for male health. They can work synergistically.

Benefits of taking L-Arginine?  What's the best time to take it in relation to exercise?

Unknown: At this time there insufficient evidence to show a positive relationship between L arginine supplementation and improvements in athletic performance / strength. It is found naturally in the food you eat (meats). At this time, I'd save your money over using it as a supplement

Is arginine safe to take? My brother-in-law has been encouraged to take "nitric factor" in the form of arginine, is this safe longterm?

Arginine: Like many supplements there aren't really any studies looking at longterm outcomes (5, 10, 15yrs). It's probably safe, but will it boost athletic performance in a meaningful way? Maybe, maybe not. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22251130.
