    I am now nearing the end of my first week, taking this supplement twice a day as directed. I take one when I get up in the morning and one before bed. But I always make sure I eat meals as normal. It's important that you take it on an empty stomach, so try to take it after you've fully digested your previous meal and don't feel bloated anymore. At first when I researched it, I couldn't believe what it does. Not until taking it, and seeing all my health problems just magically disappear. I must have had some kind of imbalance of hormones in my body. Whatever this stuff is doing, it fixes everything. I just hope I'm always able to obtain this, because I feel great and don't want it to ever stop. I fully researched this product before taking it and made a logical conclusion to take after reading two articles on webmd.com #1 [

          I first went to the Vitamin Shoppe for some "Pink Magic" that a friend recomended for working out. After talking to the associate telling him about me and what I was trying to acheive he recomended I try the L-Arginine-Ornithine instead. After about 2 months I went to my Dr for a follow up. My blood pressure dropped considerably, heart rate increased, and did the best I ever did on my stress test. I take one 2000 mg first thing in the morning and one before bed. I now find myself taking less blood pressure meds that made me sleepy during the day and my work outs are better because I don't struggle through them any more. I'm better at 50 yrs old than I was at 39 yr old. Of course I recomend any one who likes this review to first talk to their Dr. before starting this.

                I use this supplement as a vasodilator that I take before bed...extra nitric oxide heals me up and gets my hands and feet nice and warm for night sleep. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT. I have tried tons of other arginines and nothing works on me AT ALL. Then I tried this combo product and was blown away at how effective it is. I mean if your testosterone level is normal this product will probably improve erection quality if that is what you want it for. I just think that vasodilation is good for healing the body so I use it at night to stimulate the PNS and nothing beats it! Well worth the addition to everyone's vitamin cabinet.

                    I ordered this product to include into my daily workout routine and I have been satisfied with the results. This, along with a protien shake suppliment, has put on nice lean muscle and my strength has vastly improved in teh two weeks that I have been using it. I have noticed a bit of a kick in the sexual drive lately, but nothing like Viagra. I take 4-6 pill daily, which is 2-3 times what the directions say. With this being a free form amino acid, there is no harm on extra dosage.

                                At age 53 I am not as concerned with the muscle growth aspects of this supplement as I am with my performance in the bedroom. Though I do not have ED, I have enjoyed the increased performance and confidence that I get from Viagara and Cealis.

                                    I have been taking this product for a little over 30 days now and have noticed BIG increases in strength and lean muscle mass. I take arginne in powder form in my Pre-WO drink with gluatimine, Post-WO I take this supplement along with more glutamine and BCAA's. Would strongly recommend this product to anyone looking to increase strength and lean muscle mass.

                                        Russell H: I am diabetic and my overall health has been compromised for more than 25 years.
                                        I had bones damaged and the hospital dietitian recommended the use of L-Arginine.
                                        My healing was startling to me and the entire health support staff.
                                        A subsequent bout with tissue growth was also supported by use of the arginine, such that it was not necessary to amputate my lower leg and foot.
                                        I will continue to supplement my body's need for this pre-cursor to protein (soft tissue and bone) production and growth.

                                        David W: I take L-lysine, L-glutamine,and L-arginine/ornithine supplements on days I do slow burn weights. The post-workout regime is whey protein within 30 minutes of completion. The l-lysine should help circumvent herps outbreaks. A good probiotic should also be taken.

                                        patricia h: this is best taken at night about 30 min before bedtime. I'm 5;2" and I would take 3 tablets.
                                        Drink a full glass of water.
                                        It works at night. If you have had herpes of any kind be sure to take a 500mg .L Lysine when you take this so that it does not bring about a break out. Not saying it will but some mixes of this inclued it and Vit B . Be sure you are taking all of your vit and mineral supplements. It will work wonders if you work out and take it at night. To read more on it google LIFE EXTENSON Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw . I heard about this from their book in 1981. If you exercise with weights and do a 30 -1 hr routine every other day or upper one day , lower the next ...in 4 weeks the results will come and after that it starts being more and more rapid. It melted the fat and built muscle. I used Jane Fonda floor exercises at that time . and they worked ! Now I may go to the gym but am not as consistant. . Actuallybuilding a great body when I was young built muscle memory and my body Gets It when I exercise now. I would not take it over 60 days ..but it won't hurt if you do take it 90 + days. I dont' because I am a woman and my body makes growth hormone from it and I get fuzz on my face. It all falls out when I stop taking it . But the muscles stay and the fat does not come back if I stick to my exercise routine.

                                        Anthony I: I always take on an empty stomach before working out, washing the capsules down with a pre-workout drink. I also take them before bed on an empty stomach. From what I read several years ago, absorption is better on an empty stomach. And, from my experience, the only thing that upsets my stomach is when a pre-workout drink has an excessive amount of caffeine in it.
                                        Every one is different, but I have never had this product, alone, cause me any issues.

                                        Veronica Lynn Z: Hi patc, Amino Acids should always be taken on an empty stomach with water. As soon as I wake in the morning I take my Amino Acids before doing anything else. It is best if you can wait at least 20 mins. so the amino acids can be digested before having coffee or breakfast.

                                        Hopefully this information has been helpful. Wishing you good health and peace of mind, Veronica Lynn

                                        Veronica Lynn Z: As we age, our bodies generate fewer and fewer amino acids. Taking supplements has been beneficial for me. I take 8 different amino acid supplements daily.

                                        I have been taking L-Arginine - Ornithine for 20+ years now. I am 50 years old, very active, and exercise most days. The exercise is moderate, not the over the top body building type.

                                        I look younger, have greater endurance, lift more weight, and can work harder than any other 50 year old woman I know.

                                        Hopefully this has been helpful. Wishing you peace & good health.

                                        William R: The question is a technical one that should be answered by the company. Why they would flip a question of this nature to a customer is beyond me and makes me question why I continue to purchase from Vitamin Shoppe since they continually send formulation and purpose questions to me. If they can't answer a question about why they do something, one wonders what they in fact know and how does this lack of knowledge affect the quality of their products. Jun 3, 2014
