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.

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

No: I think you are the same person who had a kidney cancer when you were 2 years old, and I believe that it was wilms tumor. These supplemental Amino Acids when taken in moderation would not give any effects on your sexual function or induce recurrences of wilms tumor. But I don't believe there are reasons you need to take these supplements. They will not increase your"macho" power. ...Read more
