Safe: Although the jury's still out on whether L-arginine actually helps with exercise performance, the 1 gram amount is probably similar to what you can get from your diet, so it should be a safe amount. ...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 would like to add l-arginine to my workout supplement regimen. Read that if on BP meds=bad idea. Generally safe or not?

Useless: If you are eating a balanced diet, this dietary supplement will not do you any good, other than lightening your wallet.

Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...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.

When is the best time to take l-arginine amino acid for the veins to show? *i workout very hard* and what is the recommended daily dosage? Is it safe?

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

Arginine: You can take it but if you are well and have a balanced diet you are likely achieving the same thing.

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

Can taking l-arginine supplements cause herpes if you don't have it already?

Can taking l-arginine supplements cause herpes if you don't have it already?

NO: If you have acute or chronic herpes it's long been thought that l-arginine will aggravate it, but it can not make herpes grow if you don't have herpes already. However, the evidence that arginine actually aggravates herpes is surprisingly slight, so it is probably safe to take even if you have herpes! See http://www. Metametrixinstitute.

L arginine can make me grow taller?

L arginine can make me grow taller?

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

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.

Does L-arginine help against cancer?

Adjunct only: I don't believe it will do anything for you. The proposed mechanisms make no sense, and the whole thing is cultish. Interestingly, there's a counter-cult based on taking no arginine in the diet. I wouldn't give money to a pill company that misled me. If you want to try arginine, don't give up on conventional treatment. ...Read more
