The benefits of l arginine!
This important amino acid is used by the body to make nitric oxide, the vasodilator needed to achieve and maintain a strong, firm erection.
Arginine also has numerous other functions,
Like the erectile dysfunction drug, Viagra, l-arginine boosts nitric oxide levels, which relaxes the muscles and blood vessels in and around the penis.
This allows blood to flow freely into the organ which helps you achieve a powerful erection.
Low dosages of less than 2 grams a day are very unlikely to have any effect. My recommendation is to take 3 grams of L-arginine daily (on an empty stomach), along with 100-150 milligrams of pycnogenol.
Why pycnogenol? It appears this substance enhances the effects of arginine.
In a recent pycnogenol/L-arginine study, 50 men with mild to moderate erectile dysfunction took a combination of L-arginine plus pycnogenol or a placebo for 30 days. After one month, the participants reported normal erectile function and having sexual intercourse twice as often as at the start of the study.
Arginine is an amino acid found in foods you eat every day, so side effects are almost non existent. I've heard that extremely high doses can cause nausea. I've taken it in doses as high as 15 grams and felt no side effects.
In addition to supplements you can also eat foods high in arginine.
