    Lightbulb Arginine/NO2/NOx2 etc

    My question about Arginine supplementation is how might it effect blood pressure? I would think it would have a pretty significant effect on that based on what it does in large doses. I've read nothing about any side effects regarding blood pressure but I'm curious if anyone has any info on this.

    Also knowing that Arginine is used for other things other than as a body building supplement I checked into a few other things that I thought may contain a lot of Arginine and here's what I found. First of all if you watch any TV in the US at all you've probably seen the ads for "Enzyte" the natural male enhancement stuff. Well reading about what's in that, it contains Arginine (and likely a good amount of it) along with various other herbal crap. Although I wasn't able to find out what the exact amount of Arginine in it is. Also a quick search of the Walgreens drug store website came up with drink supplements called ReSource (Arginaid Extra Arginine Intensive Drink for wounds). This stuff per 8oz drink contains 250 cals, 10.5 gms protein, 4.5 gms L-Arginine, and Vitamins C & E. It costs $2.00 per 8 oz. Searching the CVS pharmacy site I found a bunch of Arginine supplements (search yielded 50 results) most being marketed as sexual enhancement supplements.

    I just want people to know there are other sources of Arginine out there besides what's being marketed at you for body building and a person may be able to get off a lot cheaper with other supplements containing the same thing and a lot of these other supplements also have a lot of other vitamins in them.

    According to some other research NOx2 costs around $49.95 per 60 pills. Each pill contains 1000mg of Arginine and you are supposed to take 3 pills daily for a total of 3000mg per day. On the CVS pharmacy website they have L-Arginine pills (Natures Bounty) that come 50 to a bottle at 500mg per pill and the bottle costs $5.24. So NOx2 would cost roughly $1.66 per 1000mg while this stuff at CVS will run you about $.20 per 1000mg of Arginine. Can you say marketing markup?
