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?

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

Hey im 16 years old and 5'5 tall and I really want to gain height because I play basketball any products that will help? Is there any way my height will gain from using supplements of human growth (l- arginine or amino acids) or making my growth plates g

Hey im 16 years old and 5'5 tall and I really want to gain height because I play basketball any products that will help? Is there any way my height will gain from using supplements of human growth (l- arginine or amino acids) or making my growth plates g

If: If your growth plates in your long bones have fused, then you are finished growing and no medications or treatments will make you taller. The average age for this in females is 15 to 16 and for males is 18 to 19. If your growth plates are still open it is possible you may still grow a little on your own. Sometimes human growth hormone (hgh) can be used to increase height in young children prior to and around puberty, but makes little difference in height after puberty. Actual hgh is tightly regulated and can only be distributed by physicians - usually endocrinologists, so be wary of any products that claim to contain it. Amino acids are found in protein, so as long as you eat a balanced diet, supplementation will not help. Once you reach adulthood, your height is what it is and short of a gruesome leg-lengthening surgery with immense pain, expense, and complications, there's nothing you can do to actually gain a few inches.

There are a few things you can do to make yourself appear taller:
- practice good posture
- find shoes with thick soles or "lifts"
- dress in monochromatic colors, wear vertical stripes and keep your look stream-lined
- make sure your clothes fit well - baggy clothes will make you appear smaller. ...Read more

If you were to become a total vegan, what is the smallest combination of food items needed to get all the essential vitamins, and fatty & amino acids?

If you were to become a total vegan, what is the smallest combination of food items needed to get all the essential vitamins, and fatty & amino acids?

You can't: If you become a non-supplementing vegan, you will ruin your health. Clinicians describe it as so common that there's even a "vegetarian's myelopathy", a disease of the spinal cord from B12 deficiency, with numbness and paralysis of the legs. If you want to be a vegan for moral reasons, you will need to supplement. Anyone telling you otherwise is a huckster. Protect your health. ...Read more

Is there any interaction between isolate whey protein and klonopin (clonazepam)? I'm asking because protein contains amino acids and I suppose its not a good mix with klonopin (clonazepam).

Is there any interaction between isolate whey protein and klonopin (clonazepam)? I'm asking because protein contains amino acids and I suppose its not a good mix with klonopin (clonazepam).

Protein binding: We mostly have information on protein binding of Clonazepam (klonopin) in the context of organ failure compared to normal. Any Amino Acid you eat, or any protein is usually well regulated by liver and kidneys and likely has little impact on its metabolism as a drug unless you have organ failure and altered protein metabolism. ...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
