Guys,

Do I need the ‘base’ form or the HCL form?

Previously, I have just been using ‘l-arginine’ (no further description) from various UK Healthfood chains.

Thanks guys

Get the base form.

I get arginine from kilosports. You want the HCL.

Quote:

L-Arginine is a semi-essential amino acid synthesized by the body from ornithine. It supports protein synthesis because it is involved in the transport and storage of nitrogen. L-Arginine is important for proper physical performance because it is used by the body to produce creatine. L-Arginine 1000 is from free base Arginine, which is 17% more potent than arginine HCL (hydrochloride).
Unquote.

I rest my case.

When I first ordered 18 months ago, I called asking Kilosports the same question. I was told definitely HCL because base is hygroscopic (sic) , i.e., absorbs moisture from the air. True HCL is a little less potent than base.

I guess that’s why my product comes with a desiccant packet in the bottle to keep it dry.

Guys - thanks for your help but I’m still unsure. Why does it being able to absorb moisture from air make it better/worse?

Thanks

It depends on the supplement. At best it simply means that it needs to be stored properly to stop it clumping or getting sticky. However, some supplements are not very stable in moist air and can lose their structure. I don’t know if L-Arginine is one of them.

wondering if

If a gooey mass isn’t a problem, by all means get base. End of my input. Sorry i stated.

My L-arginine pills have always stayed fresh and dry and crisp. I do live in Arizona, but I also keep the top on the bottle and like I said, there is a desiccant pack in the bottle to absorb humidity. It isn’t a problem.

I would recommend HCL. You can’t taste it. The L-Arginine base powder has to be one of the worst tasting things on earth.

I would guess that free form = base. If it doesn’t taste bad for you, consider yourself lucky. I think that there is a percentage of people (1 in 5 maybe) that can’t taste it.

Excellent. Thanks anon. Yeah it tastes a bit odd but nothing I can’t stand, sometimes it actually tastes nice. Does that make me some kind of supplement perve?

(I still wish they sold L-arginine in the uk as powder :( )
