Post L- Arginine as viagra

Does anyone else take L-Arginine as a daily supplement. I feel it really helps with sexual ability, and take about 1500 mg a day, but take 1500 mg prior to sex, using it as a natural viagra, if you will. I would be interested to know if anyone else uses this, and what their MD's have said about it.

I don't use it, but I've heard of it for better sex. I would consider giving it a try. If you don't mind, In what ways has it improved your sex?
Buck.

Buck, it helps maintain a good erection. It is something that your body produces naturally (arginine, that is), so the supplement gives it a boost.

L-Arginine is one component among others in the herbal I take. They contribute to an intense erection and increased libido. Residual effects carry over to the next day. Viagra does not help with libido.

Re: L- Arginine as viagra

Arginine is a hemodilator (increases blood vessel size). This makes erect (and probably flacid) penis's able to hold more blood. Therefore, erections are easier to obtain and maintain.

Re: L- Arginine as viagra

I know there are a lot of different brands of L-arginine. I seen a brand named Jarrow the other day, what are your brands of choice?

Actually, Arginine is a main ingredient in a supplement called "NOZ" by Nutrabolics that I take. Might be better off buying a "purer" version. Twinlabs makes one I think and so does NOW.

Re: L- Arginine as viagra

If you don't truly have ED but just suffer from occassional performance anxiety, or need a little help staying as hard as you would like from time to time, then L-Arg. might help quite a bit. About 2000 to 3000mg. 1/2 hour before you will need your best erection will provide a boost with no known side effects. It's not viagra but if you don't really need viagra why pay for it and risk it's side effects?

Re: L- Arginine as viagra

Ive taken l-arginine (500 - 1000mg) on a few occasions and it did seem to heighten sexual response so it seems to work for both men and women.

What brand do you use? If I understand it right 1.5 grams of power is equal to 1500mg in the capsule form.

This info is me....to a tee!!!...I need some help once and a while, but not like a monster drug that will cost money....I have tried with great success splitting stamina rx in half every great while....but that is not a "natural" supplement.

SO....
Just a quick question: Can Arginine be taken if food is present in the stomach??...will it still work...or is it better on an empty stomach...????

Many supplements do not work if you do not wait the customary 2 hour digestion window?!!

Just wondering
