In brief: Depends

For congestive heart failure: doses range from 6-20 grams per day, as three divided doses.
For chest pain (angina pectoris): 3-6 grams three times per day for up to one month. For preventing the loss of the effectiveness of Nitroglycerin (angina pectoris): 700 mg four times daily. For organic erectile dysfunction (ed): 5g taking lower doses might not be effective.

In brief: Voodoo

Eat veg, salad, fruit and fish/twice weekly arginine is another voodoo scam. And exercise at least 3 times weekly.
All proven. Arginine is another glutamine scam.
