Ok, so there are lots of arginines out there. I'm trying to figure out which one (or perhaps more or perhaps none?) to include in a homemade pre-workout stack.
Here are the different Arginines I've seen readily available:
L-Arginine Ethyl Ester
Here's my initial thoughts on them:
L-Arginine: The standard Amino Acid. Not very efficient, takes large quantities to work but will provide a range of benefits, primarily increased pump, increased growth hormone, and increased blood flow.
AAKG: Much better absorbed than L-Arginine, provides better pump and blood flow but may not provide the GH benefit?
Di-Arginine Malate: Haven't been able to find too much good info on this one. It seems it is more efficient than L-Arginine but I'm not sure about anything else.
L-Arginine Ethyl Ester: Supposedly FAR more efficient than any other form of Arginine, dosed at 800-1500mg, but as with CEE there are skeptics. No clue how it effects GH.
Am I on the right track? Am I totally off on my initial opinions on each?
What kind of dosage should I be aiming for in a pre-workout homebrew stack?
Do I want Ornithine to compliment the Arginine? If so do I need OKG or wil L-Ornithine do the trick?
Thanks in advance!
