    Up the dose or keep it there?

    You taking it for growth-hormone production purposes? Dosing is typically 10-30g on an empty stomach. I believe it was upon awakening (fasted state).

    ok - I did not know that arginine should be taken on an empty stomach. I will do 3g upon waking. 3g before lunch meal and 3g about an hour before bed.

    why does eating reduce the effects of l-arginine?

    5-10g 30-60 mins before bed time on empty stomach is good.


    in college, i read in an article that combining L-Lysine with arginine (or any other nitric oxide species) will make the over night GH release x 300% or something ridiculous as opposed to taking arginine alone

    can't find the article, but i bought some Now Food's lysine powder, and IIRC, when I was taking both back in college, I used about 2 grams of lysine, and 5 grams of arginine or citrulline

    it may also be because l-lysine has a natural tendancy to supress the outbreaks of all 3 types of herpes virus, whereas l-arginine has a tendancy to cause herpes outbreaks to occur more frequently. you herpes riddled college student.
