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

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

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

Hi, I'm a 20 boy and I'm 175 cm. I searched everywhere but the answers was different. I want to know If I take L-arginine supplements can I become taller?

Noooooo!: Your bones (the long ones) grow from the ends. That usually stops by age 16 in girls and 18 in boys. If the growth plates have fused at the ends, that's it. Human growth hormone (HGH) not L-arginine (an amino acid) is the only thing that can work. People who have that happen to them look like Frankenstein's monster in the movies.
