    I purchased a decent amount of 1g arginine pills a few weeks ago.

    However, I was reading a lot on here and some other places and it seems that straight l-arginine may not be the best source for arginine.

    Would taking something like Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate, arginine ethyl ester, or combining Lysine with arginine be more effective.

    I like arginine for its effects in the bedroom and working out but I want to make sure that the effects are not all in my head and this is actually benefiting me.

    l-arginine has a very short half life, the others have longer ones
