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 want to know about L-arginine benefits and muscle gain. I'm doing HIIT (High Intensity Intervals Training) every day, FOCUS T25 Workout.

See details: Studies are contradictory. Some suggest that L-arginine may increase levels of growth hormone while other studies have not found this to be the case. I would avoid this supplement and focus of your resistance training and a high protein diet. ...Read more

Drinking an energy shot, it contains high concentrations of caffeine, taurine, magnesium and L-Arginine, also i'm on antidepressants, is it safe?

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

Is 1 avacodo, some slices of onion , and a handful of garbanzo beans a healthy lunch?

Is 1 avacodo, some slices of onion , and a handful of garbanzo beans a healthy lunch?

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

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
