Unknown: At this time there insufficient evidence to show a positive relationship between L arginine supplementation and improvements in athletic performance / strength. It is found naturally in the food you eat (meats). At this time, I'd save your money over using it as a supplement ...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
Arginine: ....Is something your body normally makes, but you can be deficient if you don't have enough of the building blocks. Symptoms of deficiency include poor wound healing, hair loss, skin rash, constipation, and fatty liver. There is some evidence it may be useful for claudication (pain in your legs with exercise due to poor circulation). It's used for lots of other things, but without good evidence. ...Read more
Wouldn't recommend: Protein supplementation is not the greatest idea in teens. It really is much better for them to get their nutrition through food intake. These supplements are not well regulated and one can never be sure you are taking what they say. Also, protein supplements are stressful to developing kidneys. If you teen is wrestler ,body builder it is best to get the protein with meats, eggs, dairy, nuts. ...Read more
unlikely: Assuming that the source of the l-arginines that you are considering are reliable, then this is a basic Amino Acid which should be the same whatever the source. There is always a risk with unregulated products like this that you are getting less than the label says, or some hopefully benign adulterant to save money for the manufacturer. ...Read more

I'm 5"7, 16 years old, male. I have recently started taking L-arginine & l orthinine, will this help increase my height?
Unlikely to matter: The growth centers controlling your final height usually start to close around 16 in males and finish by 18.Most at your height will gain another inch.If you have open growth centers (x-ray can tell) you are can grow. If your bone maturity was more like a 15 year old, you might gain 2.Special supplements do not increase your final height. ...Read more
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
Safety, unclear need: L-arginine is a dietary supplement. It is made by the body, but is used as a supplement in various adult disorders. No specific indications have been identified in chidlren and adolescents, and it is a substance that, in overdose, can cause brain edema and even death. Oberdose is easier in children because of their smaller size. So, no clear value and possible risk: not a good combination. ...Read more

Unknown: All meds & supplements have potential side effects, and usually it's a pretty long list of potential but uncommon side effects. Side effects are not always dose dependent, so even 1 dose can sometimes cause. Just b/c it's a supplement doesn't mean no risk. I discuss w/ my pts about doing a risk-benefit analysis before starting a new tx. ...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. 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. Make sure your pcp can check your area of concern to diagnose it and treat it quickly. ...Read more
Here are some ...: L-Arginine is commonly included in many brands of supplements touted for enhancing erection, which usually have Yohimbine - the chief ingredient for helping erection through central nerve effect. In reality, l-arginine effect for erection is still not clearly defined. Note the cause for ED is always multiple and no single agent can boot but potentially help improve erection depending on existing.. ...Read more
L-arginine: Me too. Lets do 2nd opinion so I can help. ...Read more
Maybe not...: To assess if one's erections have weakened, he should visit a primary doctor, who can check for possible causes: stress, depression, diabetes, high blood pressure, low testosterone, artery disease, high cholesterol, smoking, older age, etc... 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
What are considered well accepted benefits and side effects you have personally seen from l-arginine?
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
I have recently bought L-arginine (1000mg) at GNC because I was informed it had something in it that helped height growth??I am currently 17 being 5'9
A fool and his money: Are soon parted-an old parable but as true today as the day it was written. Many search for fixes to issues that are long term and have no treatment.You will be as tall as your genes allow, and not more. No special diet,exercise, shots,etc will change that.Most males stop growing at 17. An x-ray of your wrist/hand can tell if you have open growth centers and could grow more.If closed, you are done ...Read more
