    I've read here and other pages that it helps with getting and maintaining an erection. How does it compare to Viagra? Or is it all BS marketing hype?

    Generally speaking, I don't need either but I don't pop a boner as quickly as I use to but strangely once I am hard it stays hard, even after cumming I stay hard for about 15 minutes!! Younger guys get hard instantly but go limp immediately after cumming but I don't. Anyone else like this?

    I experienced harder erections for a week or so, but I think it was just a placebo effect. I'm only 25 and didn't need it either, but tried out of curiosity.

    I have used it. I think it has been beneficial but it is not a miracle drug. It also seems to increase somewhat the volume of ejaculate. Some claim it is best to cycle it by taking it for 2 or 3 weeks then not taking it for a week or so.

    The supplement is used by body builders to increase blood flow and to swell the muscles. It should be cycled with 3 months on one off. Depending on age and fitness level it will make a difference but it isn't a steroid nor Viagra.

    If your seeking a natural Viagra you might want to try Vitrix by Nutrex you don't need to cycle it.

    So you guys who have used L Arginine, how much can you (or should you) take per day and for how long? I've been taking about 1,000 mg a day - just started three days ago.

    The bottle says to take 1000mg 3 times a day, but all the literature I've read, and a doctor's talk show I just listened to on the topic indicate that 5000mg per day is needed for full effectiveness. That makes it a very expensive proposition. I take it for athletic purposes, not enhanced erectile function, and I've found that 3000mg per day works well for me.

    Whoah! That would get a bit expensive, I think. I'll up to dosage to maybe 1,400 but I'm not sure I can make 3,000 per day.

    2000 per day is ok, but the key is to stay on a schedule for a period of time. L-Arginine isnt a one time pill, it needs to build up in your system. As always, a good workout routine will supplement the effects and drink water

    What exactly do l-arginine do? I have tried to look online and nothing of major importance has come up. Can someone please explain it to me?

    I am 66 and have taken L argine for years. My Dr told me about. I have no problem getting or holding an erection, and the amount of cum I eject is large. I take 1000 per day

    It's much cheaper to buy the powder rather than the capsules. Unfortunately, the powder has an unpleasant bitter taste. I buy the powder and empty capsules, and then put the powder in capsules myself. It doesn't take much effort, and you save quite a bit of money over time.

    I take a 1000mg a day for the past year or so...much firmer and thicker when fully aroused...also hangs fuller thruout the day too. Bigger loads...not so much.
