Hello. I want to know when is best to take L-arginine to burn fat. I perform exercises of high intensity intervals.
Misinformed?: L-argentine will not in any way lead you to real fat loss. ...Read more
I want to know about L-arginine benefits and muscle gain. I'm doing HIIT (High Intensity Intervals Training) every day, FOCUS T25 Workout.
I've been looking for supplements and I saw one called L-Arginine I was wondering if it was safe for me to take considering my high blood pressure?
Drinking an energy shot, it contains high concentrations of caffeine, taurine, magnesium and L-Arginine, also I'm on antidepressants, is it safe?
Probably: Assuming the product is not contaminated and contains what it says, the tauriine, magnesium and L-arginine do not constitute a risk. A typical cup of coffee is 100-200 mg of caffeine; at some establishments it can go to 400 mg. That is your guide. But the concern is less the interaction with antidepressants, more is it ok for you and any medical condition you might have. ...Read more
Is it okay to take l-arginine while taking losartan, nicardipine & metropolol? I saw on dr. Oz that l-arginine was a good supplement to take if one has high blood pressure. I also saw that hibiscus tea was good for lowering blood pressure. Is it ok to tak
This: This should be fine, but with a few caveats. First. L-arginine is an unproven dietary supplement. It may be helpful, but there is no convincing evidence. And just because it is a natural supplement does not mean it is necessarily safe. If you haven't already, a more effective and natural way to help your blood pressure would be to cut out sodium and increase your intake of fresh foods. Your combination of drugs indicates to me that you have a substantial blood pressure problem. You should discuss these supplements with your physician and your pharmacist to be sure there are no interactions, and always let healthcare professionals know what supplements and over-the-counter medicines you are taking in addition to your prescriptions. Although uncommon, in some cases these ordinary supplements and otc meds can cause negative drug interactions with your important prescriptions. ...Read more
Yes-but not everyday: This sounds like a very healthy lunch! garbanzo beans are a good source of protein & fiber, avocados contain healthy oils & all 3 are rich in a wide array of beneficial phytonutrients. But variety is the spice of life; I advise eating foods of every color as the different colors are made by different nutrients, so don't eat this every day. See http://www. Whfoods. Com/foodstoc. Php for more on these. ...Read more
Sodium free beans (kidney, black, garbanzo, pinto) vs sweet potatoes which is healthier for wright loss? I've been eatin beans and avoiding potatoes
Neither: Both types of foods contain high glycemic index sugars, the sweet potatoes being somewhat worse. A balanced, lower fat diet and exercise will suffice for weight loss of 10 lbs. Or so. A larger weight loss might require a specific diet. Of those available you should look at the dukan diet. It is a low-fat, high protein, low glycemic index-food diet and is safe for most people. ...Read more

Doubt it: At a listed age of 19, your growth centers are likely closed and no further linear growth would be expected. An x-ray of your wrist and hand could be reviewed for open growth centers, but if they show closure you are finished growing taller. If open, a balanced diet, proper rest and regular exercise will support proper growth. Diet supplements or hormone injections only help those with deficiency ...Read more
Safety, unclear need: L-arginine is a dietary supplement. It is made by the body, but is used as a supplement in various adult disorders. No specific indications have been identified in chidlren and adolescents, and it is a substance that, in overdose, can cause brain edema and even death. Oberdose is easier in children because of their smaller size. So, no clear value and possible risk: not a good combination. ...Read more
Probably yes: Pycnogenol is known for its wide array of health benefits. Primarily taken as a food supplement, it can dramatically increase overall wellbeing when introduced into a daily diet regimen. The positive side effects run the gamut from sexual health to anti-aging to cancer fighting. Arginine can interact with many different medications, including viagra, (sildenafil) zantac and even over-the-counter drugs. ...Read more
Unknown: All meds & supplements have potential side effects, and usually it's a pretty long list of potential but uncommon side effects. Side effects are not always dose dependent, so even 1 dose can sometimes cause. Just b/c it's a supplement doesn't mean no risk. I discuss w/ my pts about doing a risk-benefit analysis before starting a new tx. ...Read more
Effective for cold: Sores by mouth, if taken early enough, and is an amino acid, so it's relatively safe to take. Seem to be a popular home remedy. However, if you are using for something else, then it may or may not be effective depending on the diagnosis. So, if it's in the groin area, it may not be as effective. Make sure your pcp can check your area of concern to diagnose it and treat it quickly. ...Read more
Here are some. ..: L-Arginine is commonly included in many brands of supplements touted for enhancing erection, which usually have Yohimbine - the chief ingredient for helping erection through central nerve effect. In reality, l-arginine effect for erection is still not clearly defined.

Maybe not...: To assess if one's erections have weakened, he should visit a primary doctor, who can check for possible causes: stress, depression, diabetes, high blood pressure, low testosterone, artery disease, high cholesterol, smoking, older age, etc... Causes found can be treated to help make erections stronger, firmer, longer lasting. A urologist can evaluate. Meds like viagra, cialis, or Levitra (vardenafil) may help. ...Read more
What are considered well accepted benefits and side effects you have personally seen from l-arginine?
I want to know if it is bad or dangerous to consume 2.5 grs of l-arginine before training and another 2.5 grs before bed. I want to lose fat.
Generally safe: 2.5 grams of L-arginine twice a day is within safe limits based on available research. The best way to lose fat is to eat healthy foods (including plenty of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and legumes), exercise moderately (too vigorously, and you may get too hungry according to recent studies), and take care of your emotional health ("what's eating you" could be why you don't always eat right). ...Read more
Hi im 17 and want to increase my height im 5, 10 and should I take l arginine so yes how much per day and is it must to do workout after taking it?
Waste of money: You are most likely to reach your tallest potential height by following a healthy diet, getting appropriate sleep & and remaining physiclly active. Nothing you eat or drink will add inches. No exercise will make you taller. You can stunt your growth by the opposite, poor diet/sleep/inactivity can all take a toll. At 17 you are likely near the end of your growth phase. ...Read more
I have recently bought L-arginine (1000mg) at GNC because I was informed it had something in it that helped height growth?? I am currently 17 being 5'9
A fool and his money: Are soon parted-an old parable but as true today as the day it was written. Many search for fixes to issues that are long term and have no treatment. You will be as tall as your genes allow, and not more. No special diet, exercise, shots, etc will change that. Most males stop growing at 17. An x-ray of your wrist/hand can tell if you have open growth centers and could grow more. If closed, you are done ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
