“L-Arginine supplementation may address
some cardiovascular risks associated with decreased nitric oxide synthesis.”
Fried et al
“L-Arginine supplementation may address some cardiovascular risks associated with decreased nitric oxide synthesis.” Fried et al
“The effectiveness of L-Arginine for HBP relates to its ability to directly produce nitric oxide a vasodilator produced in the arteries.” Brunini et al
“When researchers tested
ArginMax, a sexual-enhancement supplement that contains ginkgo, ginseng and
L-Arginine, 80 percent of the male subjects had improved erection function, while
74 percent of the female subjects reported more libido, less dryness and
greater frequency of orgasm.”
“Both L-Arginine and forearm exercises increased the body’s vasodilatation by about 400% each and when added together by about 450%.” Hambrecht et al
“L-Arginine produced a four fold increase in blood vessel dilation.” Hambrecht et al
“L-arginine is an
essential amino acid that is present in many foods and it is also a precursor
of Nitric Oxide production. Studies have shown that arginine, when taken in
proper amounts, can stimulate NO production. In a 1999 study, 30 impotent men
were given 1500 mg of arginine each per day. It was shown that is worked no
better than the placebo in terms of vasodilatation and sexual performance.
However, when 21 men with mild to moderate impotence were given 3,000mg a day
of arginine, significant improvement in erection as well as sexual satisfaction
was reported. This study was published in the December 1998 issue of , Note using too low a

twelve-weeks of supplementation, body weight gain in the rats receiving the
high fat diet was 40 percent lower among those that received
arginine compared with the control group. For
rats on the low fat diet, weight gain was 60 percent lower in the arginine
group compared with those that received alanine. White fat pad weight
increased by 98 percent in animals that received alanine; while in animals
that received L-arginine the increase averaged only 35 percent. Arginine
supplementation was also associated with lower serum leptin, glucose,
triglycerides, urea, glutamine, and branched chain amino acids, as well as
improved glucose tolerance." Guoyao Wu et al,

"It's important to realize that L-arginine is not a magic potion in and of itself either. Some studies have found its effectiveness alone is on par with a placebo. But several studies have concluded that L-arginine in combination with other herbs is a remarkably effective treatment for mild to moderate Erectile Dysfunction.” Doctor Joseph Mercola MD
"Large artery elasticity index (LAEI) ... was significantly greater in patients treated with L-arginine than in the placebo group ... Systemic vascular resistance was significantly lower in patients treated with L-arginine ... This improvement was associated with a decrease in systolic blood pressure, peripheral vascular resistance as well as a decrease in aldosterone levels."
L-Arginine is an amino acid (See Amino Acid Protocol) present in the proteins of all life forms. It is classified as a semi-essential or conditionally essential amino acid. This means that under normal circumstances your body can synthesize sufficient L-Arginine to meet physiological demands. Some stress conditions that put an increased demand on the body for the synthesis of L-Arginine include trauma (including surgical trauma), sepsis and burns. Under these conditions, L-Arginine becomes essential, and it is then very important to ensure adequate dietary intake of the amino acid to meet the increased physiological demands created by these situations. L-Arginine may also have wound-repair activity. Many of L-Arginine's physiological activities, including its possible anti-atherogenic actions, may be accounted for by its ESSENTIAL role as a precursor to nitric oxide (See Nitric Oxide Protocol) production.
Hambrecht et al found both L-Arginine and forearm exercises increased the body’s vasodilatation by about 400% each and when added together by about 450%.
Arginine’s many benefits:
"L-Arginine powder is well known and appreciated by bodybuilders because of its effects on nitric oxide production. Arginine is a pre-cursor to nitric oxide (NO), which is responsible for increasing the maximum oxygen transport capacity in the bloodstream. With more oxygen in the blood being supplied to muscle cells, the creatine-phosphate energy pathway is optimized at the cellular level and athletes are able to push harder during each set, increasing their total number of repetitions and power output. This also results in quicker breakdown of lactic acid translating into more reps and longer sets." L-Arginine Powder Overview
“We have known for 20 years that the amino acid L-arginine offers multiple vascular benefits to people with heart disease, or those who have increased risk for heart disease due to multiple cardiac risk factors. L-arginine is a key nutrient in promoting efficient blood flow and overall cardiovascular function. L-arginine is considered one of the "semi-essential" amino acids—meaning, your body can't produce it in sufficient quantities, so you must obtain most of it from your diet.” Doctor Joseph Mercola MD
"Creatine, a compound comprising the amino acids methionine, glycine, and arginine, was discovered and isolated from meat extract in 1835. Humans produce creatine in the kidney, liver, and pancreas, but store most of it in muscles, including the heart. While creatine has been known since the early 1800s, not until the end of the 20th century did scientists discover that when taken as a supplement, creatine can be of significant help in adding muscle mass. More than 500 well-researched studies have been conducted showing that creatine supplements can help everyone—men and women, young and old—maintain muscular fitness and ward off some of the most debilitating effects of aging, such as sarcopenia, the age-related loss of muscle mass and strength."

Arginine and Cancer
Arginine and Cancer
“Arginine uses the two natural pathways into the brain to promote anti-aging properties, sports performance, and boost the immune system. Because L-arginine promotes healthy blood flow, it can also benefit human sexuality.” Arginine overcomes cardiovascular issues and reverses atherosclerosis. Dr. Prendergast is proud to say that all his patients through the last 17 years have managed to not succumb to any strokes, heart attacks or even to diabetes. Arginine is used to treat conditions that improve with increased blood flow, such as chest pains, erectile dysfunction, clogged arteries, vascular disease and headaches, according to the Mayo Clinic.” L-Arginine & Cancer
“Some 20 to 25 articles, several of which were done at the National Cancer Institute itself, demonstrating that L-arginine either prevented cancerous tumors in the first place or, in the case of existing tumors, made them significantly shrink or disappear entirely. The papers ranged from a 1943 study showing that in 83% of the animals tested, rat tumors disappeared within two to three weeks when injected with L-arginine, to a 1991 Lancet study showing that when human volunteers were injected with large doses of L-arginine over a three-day period, their “natural-killer-cell activity rose a mean of 91%.” L-Arginine & Cancer
“But hemoglobin plus nitric oxide, by contrast, raises oxygen levels in the tumors. The team’s finding in the study above is the strongest evidence to date supporting a theory, first developed in 1996, that nitric oxide is an innate part of the body’s oxygen delivery system. In previous studies scientists demonstrated that nitric oxide in blood cells is an active regulatory molecule that senses the oxygen level in tissue and causes hemoglobin to undergo subtle shape changes to release its oxygen in tissues when levels are low.” L-Arginine & Cancer
“Arginine when injected in proper doses and in an alkaline environment (pH around 9.5) leads to speedy disruption of tumor cells and results in disappearance of the tumor,” said the lead researchers, who were working on the anti-cancer molecule project since 2007. They found that arginine disrupted the cell membrane of cancer cells when the alkalinity was high enough, and this will go a long way in the non-invasive treatment of cancer. I hope you are catching the hint here to use arginine with sodium bicarbonate." L-Arginine & Cancer

As we age often our utilization of L-Arginine becomes less efficient resulting in less nitric oxide production than is required for robust good health. L-Arginine supplementation may provide a powerful assist for us aging athletes. I believe this is my situation. Although I eat LOTS of L-Arginine food sources I often supplement.
Doses of about 5 - 10 grams of L-Arginine have been found to be effective for various applications, while some recommend a daily maintenance dose of 2 grams. I often take 5 -10 grams of L-Arginine. I take supplemental (See Supplement Protocol) L-Arginine with my HGH Protocol (See HGH Protocol). As with all amino acids, take L-Arginine on an empty stomach with some whey.
Caution: L-Arginine should only be taken by healthy non-pregnant non-lactating adults. See your doctor if in doubt. Always take L-Arginine with lots of antioxidants. If you have frequent herpes outbreaks you should research the relationship between L-Arginine and herpes, L-Arginine seems to encourage herpes outbreaks. You might want to also check out L-Lysine (See L-Lysine Protocol) for help with herpes outbreaks.
