Arginine Buyer’s Guide

The question is often asked what is arginine and why is it beneficial? Arginine is a semi-essential amino acid that can normally be manufactured by the body but sometimes needs to be taken from an external source. Now we know what arginine is, what does it do? Arginine can be used for almost any purpose whether bodybuilding or just trying to stay healthy. Arginine stimulates growth hormone which in turn causes body fat to be burned and an increase in muscle mass because of the increased protein synthesis growth hormone gives. Arginine also decreases blood pressure, increases circulation, reduces your chance of getting a heart attack, it’s a precursor for nitric oxide and improves immune function.

Well, what is nitric oxide? It causes you to get a huge pump in the gym after two to three weeks of use and causes bigger veins making you more vascular and bigger than ever before.

How do I take it as a supplement? You want to take arginine on an empty stomach 30-45 min before eating and/or exercising and without taking any essential amino acids such as l-leucine, l-valine, l-isoleucine, l-tryptophan, l-methionine, l-phenylalanine, l-theronine, and l-lysine because they will affect arginine’s absorption. Now you know about arginine, and how it’s a superior supplement, almost anyone can use it for many different benefits arginine provides.

So, which ones are the best? My top recommendation is CTD Sports Noxivol. In addition to arginine, it also contains beta alanine as well as cissus quadrangularis for the joints. Other good products you may want to consider include BSN Nitrix 2.0 and Cellucor NO3 Chrome.
