Health Notes

Arginine

Arginine
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Used for AmountWhy
Angina
2 to 3 grams three times per day2 stars[2 stars]
In one study, taking arginine improved the ability of angina sufferers to exercise. Detailed studies have proven that arginine works by stimulating blood vessel dilation.
Congestive Heart Failure
5.6 to 15 grams per day with a doctor's supervision 2 stars[2 stars]
The body needs arginine to make nitric oxide, which increases blood flow. This process is impaired in people with CHF. It also has been shown to improve kidney function in people with CHF.
Erectile Dysfunction
1,670 to 2,800 mg daily2 stars[2 stars]
Blood vessels need arginine to dilate and form an erection. Supplementing with arginine has been shown to help men with erectile dysfunction in some studies.
HIV and AIDS Support and Preservation of Lean Body Mass

(Glutamine, HMB)
1.5 grams of HMB, 7 grams of L-glutamine, and 7 grams of L-arginine twice per day2 stars[2 stars]
The combination of glutamine, arginine, and HMB may prevent loss of lean body mass in people with AIDS-associated wasting.
Male Infertility
4 grams daily2 stars[2 stars]
The amino acid arginine is needed to produce sperm. Research shows that several months of L-arginine supplementation increases sperm count, quality, and fertility.
Pre- and Post-Surgery Health
12.5 to 18.75 grams daily before and after surgery2 stars[2 stars]
The amino acid arginine has a role in immune function, infection prevention, and tissue repair after injury, including surgery.
Sickle Cell Anemia and Pulmonary Hypertension
100 mg per 2.2 lbs (1 kg) of body weight, three times per dayas L-Arginine2 stars[2 stars]
People with pulmonary hypertension (a life-threatening complication of sickle cell anemia) who received L-arginine had significant improvement in one study.
Athletic Performance and Body Composition and Strength
Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
At very high intakes, the amino acid arginine has increased growth hormone levels, which stimulate muscle growth. Trials combining weight training with arginine and ornithine showed decreases in body fat and increases in total strength and lean body mass.
Female Infertility and In Vitro Fertilization
Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
Supplementing with L-arginine has been shown to improve fertility in women with a history of failed attempts at in vitro fertilization.
Gastritis
Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
The amino acid arginine may both protect the stomach and increase its blood flow.
Hypertension
Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
The amino acid arginine is needed by the body to make nitric oxide, a substance that allows blood vessels to dilate, thus reducing blood pressure. Arginine given orally and intravenously has been reported to help reduce blood pressure.
Wound Healing
Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
Arginine appears to improve wound healing by increasing protein synthesis.

The amino acid arginine has several roles in the body, such as assisting in wound healing, helping remove excess ammonia from the body, stimulating immune function, and promoting secretion of several hormones, including glucagon, insulin, and growth hormone.

                I take a scoop of GNC L-Arginine 5000 in water before going to the gym and a scoop of it in water when I return back from the gym. I tastes fine to me; it's an orange flavor. I use it to wash down supplement pills also before and after workouts. To me it's not hard to take and I am on my second canister. It also tastes great mixed in with your best liked protein shake.

                Best Uses

                • Everyday

                Comments about GNC L-Arginine 5000:

                I began using this product several years ago when I was diagnosed with a rare disease called Prinzmetal Variant. The benefits from the L-arginine is that it helps to dialate my blood vessels. The Prinzmetal causes severe vessel spasms and I constantly have to take Nitro along with a lot of other medicines.
                On the down side I have noticed a lot of weight gain since starting this and it seems that whatever I do I bulk up, being a middle aged woman that is not a big goal for me. It would be great if they could modify this to be sugar free, no way could a diabetic take this and I wouldn't with the weight gain if I didn't have to for my disease. Keep this and make a sugar free one too, great one to have to promote the energy to work out without gaining weight from the actual product! Would be a GREAT promotion, especially for women who want to work out but don't want the weight gain/bulk like men.
                The taste isn't bad but I don't drink it alone with water, I usually mix it with some Tang or Koolaid. It would be nice to have some other flavors, I tried some once from another company that was pina colada flavored, YUM!
