L-arginine, citruline, ornithine amino acids and safflower together are said to increase blood flow into the pelvis for arousal for women is it true?

No: The first three moieties are part of the urea cycle, which metabolizes ammonia to urea in both the liver and kidney. Safflower, used in chinese medicine to increase blood flow, has never been thoroughly evaluated from a rheologic standpoint, that is, how it impacts human vascular haemodynamics. Kegel exercises, biofeedback, tantric... These may positively enhance enhance pelvic flow. ...Read more

What is l-arginine how effective is it and are there any side effects?

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.

I want to know what dose of L-arginine I should take each day to increase muscle. I also want to know if I take L-arginine before exercise or after.

I want to know what dose of L-arginine I should take each day to increase muscle. I also want to know if I take L-arginine before exercise or after.

None: L-Arginine is a Nitric Oxide donor that opens blood vessels to your muscles and causes your skin to feel prickly during exercise. It doesn't increase muscle mass directly. You still have to work out. I think 1000 mg prior to workout is a good way to improve blood flow to your muscles and get a better workout. ...Read more

Do L-Arginine, L-Ornithine and L-Lysine tablets stunt growth in a 15 year old? Is stacking them just as effective? How much is a healthy amount? Thanks

Amino stacks useless: Arginine and ornithine are nonessential amino acids. In fact your body makes ornithine from arginine. Lysine is an essential AA that MUST come from your diet. The typical healthy teen will see NO benefit from supplements. Arginine can boost growth hormone synthesis/release in the elderly but only at doses 10-20g per day and it only works because the elderly don't make much to start. Eat well not p ...Read more

When you wish: Congratulations on taking up strength training. Arginine is safe, it may help you build some muscle by stimulating growth hormone, and may indeed accent your being vascular though keeping lean and high blood volume by doing a lot of cardio and watching fats and carbs in your food will help more. See whether you look more vascular shortly after taking arginine, and if so, take it before show times. ...Read more

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.

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
