I have a question about L-arginine..
I know what it does etc, amino acid (repairs cells, increases blood flow due to nitric oxide thing), and with blood flow all the healing, or repairs happen, and it’s the closest you get to natural healing.
My question is, why do athletes use L-arginine? Does it do something else than increase blood flow? Is it something like steroids? Because I know for a fact steroids/anabolics affect your dick massively, and I don’t want to take L-arginine if it will affect my sexual health in a negative way.
From the research that I have done on L-Arginine, a lot of people use it for different treatments such as poor blood circulation to the heart, brain etc etc.. The key is the blood circulation which essentially cures everything, even penile damage.
I had done some damage to the penis last year, and discussed with some of the members here on thunders, I assume my last years thread is expired and deleted.
However, I think the damage is slowly reversing due to my consistent gym work outs, and some supplement I take (vitamin E + zinc). I’m considering adding L-arginine to my diet/supplements as well, because all the feedback on L-arginine regarding penile healing is positive. So, essentially my work outs will increase the blood flow as well as keep me fit, the vitamin E + zinc will repair cells, and L-arginine will produce the nitric oxide thing, to speed up all my healing.
All I’m concerned about is I hope L-arginine is made out of natural things and not something that is artificial such as steroids which will impact both my sexual and overall health. Does L-arginine give any long term permanent damage?
Thanks for reading my post, sorry if the questions appear stupid for you.
