    I ve just purchased a jar of L-Arginine from an online store.. It's the L arginine from Now supplements, a brand from USA, and have a doubt as to intake... The substance comes in non coated tabletes and I wonder whether they are supposed to be chewable or I have just to swallow them with a a shot of water... anybody would help me???

    just noticed my mistake in the title.. of course it is "intake"

    Swallow them with water, not chewable unless the front label on the bottle clearly states they are chewable. I don't know of any L-arginine that comes in a chewable form.

    thanks for helping me! Actually there's no clear statement as to whether the drug is chewable or not but, just out of curiosity, how do you know that? you ever took Arginine? I thought it was a drug mostly used by men...

    Yes, I realize the tablets are very big, the GNC brand is easier to swallow in my opinion but still large. They are definitely meant to be swallowed not chewed, but if you want to try chewing them it would not hurt anything other than maybe not taste very good.

    I realize more men use L-arginine than women, but L-arginine is an amino acid supplement and not meant to be gender specific. Many men use it in hope of improving blood flow to the penis but it also improves circulation throughout the body - or at least that's the theory, I don't think it's been proven conclusively yet.

    I read the article at the link below. It discusses the combination and effects of combining L-Arginine with Pycnogenol. I am 57 years old and have been taking this combination for two years. I have not found much in the way of other research about combining the two. I have also made and sustained significant changes to my diet and exercise routines and have lost nearly 60 pounds during that time.

    My experience is that L-Arginine combined with Pycnogenol has made some difference in my EQ which is now very good. It's not a silver bullet by any means but I believe it helps.

    I've been taking 1000mg of l-arginine every day for the past 3 years (500 mg tablets, one at lunch one after dinner). I've never had a head ache, ever. I definitely notice a difference in my erections (as does my wife). FULLER and firmer and morning wood every day (I'm 48). About 3 months after I started taking them, while my wife was riding me, she did comment something to the effect..."lord it feels huge". I can say when stroking it, I can see a much fatter head and all the veins are much more present. Does it make me cum more - nope.

    My chiro recommended it for heart health several years back and when I went for my vasectomy 2 years ago, the urologist ask about what meds/supplements I took and I told him about the L-arginine. He said several of his patients had reported it helped with early ED or just for a firmer erection.

    I've used GNC's Argin-Max (too expensive and has other ingredients that I'm not keen on). I found Vitamin Shoppe's brand is fine and less costly. Also supplement warehouse has the fitness pro brand that's cheap and good too.

    glad to know such a small dosage gave you all the benefits from arginine... I m going to take 3 grams a day as they say you need to take 0,5 gr. per 10 kgs bodyweight... actually I would need 4,5 gr. but that seems too much IMO then I m gonna stick to 3 grams a day
