L-Arginine Powder - 1 lb.
  • 100% Pure - Free-Form
  • Premium Grade
  • Vegetarian Product

L-Arginine is a conditionally essential basic amino acid involved primarily in urea metabolism and excretion as well as DNA synthesis. L-Arginine is a precursor of nitric oxide (NO) in the human body. In the 1990s, scientists discovered that not only is NO an essential compound that helps blood circulation, but it is important to normal sexual function in both men and women.

Insufficient blood flow is a major cause of incomplete erection in men. L-Arginine has been shown to improve blood flow to the genital area by dilating blood vessels and helping the penis to enlarge to its full capacity, thus increasing the size, hardness, and frequency of erections. For women, better blood flow makes clitoral and vaginal tissues more sensitive and responsive to sexual stimulation and helps increase the possibility of reaching orgasm.

Benefits include:

  • Is a precursor of nitric oxide (NO)
  • Promotes circulation resulting in improved blood flow
  • Stimulates the release of growth hormone
  • Improves immune function
  • Reduces healing time of injuries
  • Plays a role in the formation of bone and tendons
  • Increases muscle mass, while reducing body fat
  • Supports male fertility, improving sperm production and motility
  • Reduces risk of stroke & blood clots
  • Supports normal blood pressure
  • Improves vascular function for patients with angina
  • Helps recovery after heart attack
  • Helps prevent and treat cardiovascular disease
  • Helps reduce growth of cancerous tumors

 L-arginine helps your body manufacture creatine, a protein that contributes to muscle mass and power, and also helps the body get rid of creatinine, the waste product associated with this process, making it popular with weight lifters. L-arginine is a vasodilator- it dilates the blood vessels, allowing more blood to pass through at once. That has the effect of lowering blood pressure and, in some cases, helping the body negotiate the arterial blockages that can come with conditions such as atherosclerosis. For certain patients, L-arginine can help reduce blood clots, especially in the legs.

The powerful effect of L-Arginine was illustrated in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study published in the British Journal of Urology International in which researchers evaluated the nitric oxide levels of 50 men with erectile dysfunction. The men were given either L-Arginine or a placebo for six weeks. Nine of the 29 men (31%) given L-Arginine reported a significant improvement in their sexual performance. These nine men had low nitric oxide levels at the start of the trial, but their levels doubled by the end of the study.

Smells like B.O. Plenty and tastes like a sweat sock
 If this is how sucking on B.O. Plenty's sweat sock would taste then NOW Sports hit the flavor spot on.  I have to admit though,after managing to choke it down with creatine the second time (I threw up the first time because I drank a whole bottle of Redline with it), it does give a really good pump.  I felt awsome afterwards.  Just a word of advice. Find something with a really strong flavor to cover up the vomitous taste of the powder.  It will make anything you put it into taste like ASS.
