Encapsulating Arginine Powder
I briefly tried L-Arginine quite a while back. I only took it for a few days and didn’t notice any effect. It may take longer to “kick in.” Whatever the case, I want to give it an honest test for several months. I’m hoping it might help heal and/or prevent thrombosed veins by keeping them more dilated than usual.
Arginine capsules are pretty expensive compared to powder. 1 lb. (approx. 454 grams) of NOW brand L-Arginine base powder is roughly $23 plus shipping. I’ve heard from some that Arginine powder tastes absolutely horrible. How bad is it really? Is a couple grams mixed in a small glass of juice unpalatable?
If it is too nasty I might put it into capsules myself. Empty caps come in rather non-descript sizes. I see 0 and 00 for sale. How much Arginine powder does each size hold?
