Arginine: What's Your experience?

123

Well my experience is more like a rotten apple than a Granny’s red one. It basically stirred up a slight infection I got on my chest/neck from who knows what and it’s back once again. Doctor said it was a yeast infection. How it started, back when acne was a slight problem for me I was on this medication and I stopped taking it; then I finished the rest of it after I started to get some again. After the bottle was done I got the infection all over my chest running up my neck. :wtf: right? Well I got prescribed something for vaginal infections and it cleared it up. After 3-4 years later I started L-Arginine and it brought it back. Now I’m fighting the “natural cure” battles before I give up and get the prescription again. This will be my 3rd time in the last few years and I wish I never took L-A in the first place so be careful if you ever had a skin infection.

Strange to hear from you Long Grass ,
What I heard and seen in my research on the net That Arginine help to heal the wounds and Infections sooner ,
Even some doctor recommend Diabetics patent to use Arginine to get healed quicker from the wounds and infections .
Try more or do little checkup to see is it really the arginine or some thing else causing the infections.

I’ve been taking 3g/day of AAKG (Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate) for 2 weeks now for body building, but I’ve noticed better erections too. I think it works better than plain arginine, but I typically took 1.5g-2g a day, sometimes 4g. I didn’t consistently take a higher dosage, and not always on an empty stomach like I do with the AAKG now.

For anyone not noticing effects, make sure you take it on an empty stomach. Other aminos will compete with its uptake and greatly reduce effects. I take one dose right after waking up, and another at least 5 hours later.

If the infection is bothering you ie. itching/burning I would try some over the counter topical hydrocortisone. For healing it I would try any over the counter topical anti-fungal. Stuff thats used for jock itch, yeast infections and athlete’s foot. Hope this helps.

What I’m really curious about is what causes arginine to do the things it does to one’s body? What actually happens? Does anybody know?

I did a web search on “L-Arginine nitric erectile dysfunction” and got this

http://healing.about.com/od/ritalou…rectiledysf.htm

It has information on other natural therapies.

I am anxious to hear how it works for you.
If you buy the powder, the taste is what I would describe as dead fish excrement so you will want to mix it with something.

Is L-Arginine marketed under that name or something else?

Hey there guys, just wanted to drop a note on my proceedings.

As of late, I’ve been starting to take L-Arginine on a daily basis. I bought a bottle of powder (500g) for 35 € (that’s ~47 US$) and have come up with a plan to increase dosage over the weeks.

I have decided to gradually work my way up, dosage-wise, since I’ve read that it can give you quite a hard time if you don’t take it easy. By the way, on the bottle it reads: “100 g of powder contain 70g of pure L-Arginine, etc…”. So if I want to take 1g of L-Arginine, I actually have to take 1.43g of powder! Hence, I got me a digital gold scale from ebay, too. Wasn’t very expensive, only 12 € (16 US$).

I do not eat anything two hours before and after taking a dosage. For reasons of getting that stuff better my throat more easily (it tastes terrible), I pour the powder into a glass of water, stirr it and then *gulp*.

Here’s how I’m handling it:

First intake on 03-19-2007: 1g daily, 0.5g in the morning, 0.5g in the evening. Done that for two weeks.

On April 2nd, I went up to 2g per day (1g in the morning, 1g in the evening). Will do that for another two weeks.

On April 16th, I will go up to 3g per day and continue to do so for four weeks. The whole idea behind this is 1) wait for the kick-in of the arginine and 2) find out what my ideal dosage is. I understand that this is different for most people. One guy may see big loads with as little as 3g / day, another doesn’t notice a difference before going up on 6g / day. I will monitor my progress, if any should happen to occur, and write about it here.

Cheers!


Et... la nuit se continue. C\'est vrai. Elle est complètement dechirée - ma tête.

I started ‘cause I had circultory problems. I helped that.

This is the end of week four now, and I’ve noticed some change. My sex drive has decreased significantly and I don’t feel like working out or doing my PE routine either. Given the fact that the “kick-in” should normally happen around week three/four, is it possible that this condition of mine is due to my new habit of consuming L-arginine? Should I stop the experiment? Any advice given is appreciated.


Et... la nuit se continue. C\'est vrai. Elle est complètement dechirée - ma tête.

That’s it, I’m completely quitting L-arginine. I raised the dosage to three grams today and all it does is give me a feeling as if I’ve just awakened from an anesthesia. Drowsiness to the most high. Erections are impossible. My blood pressure is totally fucked up.

It will probably take one or two weeks before my body is completely clear again, I think. Until then, I will get rid of the stuff somehow.


Et... la nuit se continue. C\'est vrai. Elle est complètement dechirée - ma tête.

I think today is the first day of the end of my L-arginine-experiment’s aftermath. Spontaneous erections have returned and so has my will to actually do anything. I’ve been devoid of any motivation to do anything for the last two weeks and blame L-arginine for it. I have no proof for that, though, only the timed coincidence of the two factors (namely intake of l-arg and the vanishing of sex drive/motivation).


Et... la nuit se continue. C\'est vrai. Elle est complètement dechirée - ma tête.

Be causious of what drugs you take with suppliments, some when combined can cause blood pressure drops, which may explaine the drowsiness, and other side effects. Arginine stilumates herpies outbreaks, it’s combined 50/50 with lysine as that suppreses them. Few of us are doctors, even less involved with herbal/mineral and supplimental treatment. I’m not either, but knowledge is the best weapon, read read read.

I’d be happy to answer questions about the herbal side of PE, as it increasingly seems to be my little project throughout my PE journey. Feel free to PM me, and good luck!
