How do you guys feel about Arginine? Does it have side effects? Does it really help that much? Is it worth taking?

these are few things i know abou Arginine:

1)Precursor for the synthesis of Nitric Oxide (NO)

2)Stimulation of the release of the most important anti-aging hormone in the body, growth hormone.

3)Improves immune function

4)Reduces healing time of injuries (particularly bone)

5)Reduces risk of heart disease

6)Increases muscle mass

7)Reduces adipose tissue body fat

8)Helps improve insulin sensitivity

9)Helps decrease blood pressure

10)Alleviates male infertility, improving sperm production and motility

11)Increases circulation throughout the body, including the sex organs

Love it...I use pure L-arginine for my preworkout pump product. Typical dose depending on size etc is between 3-5g. I get crazy pumps from the stuff. Cheap and effective

you can take it pre contest, but you should cut it out the last week or two because it might make you hold some water (and you dont want that).
good luck bro :xyxthumbs:

Take 6-12g post workout. In junction with your high GI/GL carbs and whey.

I'm in favor of arginine, especially over an N.O formula like superpump, explode, etc. More pure and significantly more cost effective. As far as it's effectiveness, it will work. The extent to which it works is entirely decided by the individual. You will get a pump. Mass differences due to the nutrient uptake won't be too showy.

Personally, I used an N.O synthesizer for focus more than all. Finally I stopped using it. No usual sides, unless you think your tough and OD :keke:
