    Gives cold sores.

    If you want a pump/all the other purported benefits of arginine, go with its metabolite: Agmatine.
    PES

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

    Arginine is part of the NO cycle. It's an amino acid. However, new scientific research indicates that Arginine does not raise Arginine levels & promote Nitric Oxide as well as Citrulline.

    However, Arginine in a formula w/Citrulline & other vasodilation ingredients can add value in certain formulas IMO. It is part of the NO cycle & it does absorb in the body. I've taken products w/Arginine in them & they have promoted pumps.

    With that said I would not buy straight L-Arginine powder & take for lifting. It's a formula type of ingredient & it doesn't take much. Research indicates that several grams of Arginine show no benefits on strength & is not an ergogenic aide. However, in a formula is where this ingredient shows promise & I don't think it needs to be dosed in grams. This is more of in the milligrams w/ingredients like Citrulline or Citrulline Malate & Nitrates etc.
