        As any serious trainer/athlete would know, vitamins and supplements aren't meant to taste like koolaid or candy. Not to mention the taste and smell isn't THAT bad, not nearly as bad as these panzies are making it out to be. This stuff works, bigger pumps, lower blood pressure, recovery, immune system, you name it. It's just like your NO2 or whatnot but for a lot cheaper and a isolate. Go with this one, and for all of you bagging on the smell and taste, man up.

        This product smells like old dirty, sweaty socks. When you mix it with anything, it overtakes the juice or water and tastes so bad. Do not waste your money on this product like I did! I will be buying the pill forms from now on.

        Free form L-Arginine has the unbearable taste....the best is to take it with some L-Glycine, which is sweet in taste and somewhat nullifies that L-Arginine taste.

        L-Arginine has that bad taste. The best is to take it with L-Glycine which somewhat nullifies the taste of L-Arginine. YMMV.....

        >> A Vitamin Shoppe Customer commented on this review on 2010-03-04
        Absolutely right, the taste is ghastly. I opened a capsule of Solar Ray product and the taste is neutral. So war gives with this product?

        >> A Vitamin Shoppe Customer commented on this review on 2010-03-04
        Of course taste horrible. It is arginine. You have to take it mix with something. I do mix it in my favorite shake from Herbalife and it is perfect. I love the product and I do not complaint. Thank you.

              I just threw this out. I tried to take this 3 times and it is awful. I mixed it with water, that was really bad. Then I mixed it with a chocolate protein shake and I had to throw the shake out. I waited a day and tried it with water again and it is undrinkable. It taste like butt mixed with feet.

              Comments about Now Foods L-Arginine Powder 1500MG - 1 Pound Powder:

              I remember when the NO2 craze kicked off, and everyone was making Arginine Alpha Keto-Glutarate pills. L-Arginine is an excellent catalyst for NO2 production, and far less expensive than the AAKG--which eventually stopped working (at least for me).

              I like the fact that it is a powder, so that I can mix and flavor it as I like (L-arginine by itself tastes horrible), and I like the fact that there are no fillers, preservatives, colors, etc.

              This stuff works. I can't speak for anyone else, but I notice the difference in my weight training workout when I don't use it. The only thing, and it's why I gave it three stars, is the taste. My God, is it bad. I remember being a kid in the 80's and tasting the protein powder my uncle took back then. It is up there with that. There is no masking it. Don't try to escape the taste because you can't. Just mix it in whatever, tilt your head back, and take it to the neck. After that, go enjoy your workout.

                This product came with such high praise that I purchased it for my son. He can't gag it down, even though he wants to take it. I am resorting to encapsulating the product so that he can continue to benefit from it, without the unmaskable flavor, because we wanted it in the purest form.

                      if you are thinking about buying this product you should realize that the supplement facts column is a lie im disappointed that theyput a false serving size instead of 300 servings that actual container says 98 that is not a small difference in addition a serving size is 2 teaspoons NOT 1/2 these are very large mistakes that should be fixed. im am disappointed that the vitamin shoppe would do this. otherwise it is a god product

                          Comments about Now Foods L-Arginine Powder 1500MG - 1 Pound Powder:

                          I have been taking this product for about 3 weeks. I have noticed a great change in strength and endurance. I have taken the expensive stuff before and doesn't come close to this. Since it is a powder, your body tends to absorb it a lot faster and with less waste of the product.

                          Before purchasing the L-Argenine I read several reviews and the main issue was the taste and smell. Well I agree. I tried the review suggestions of apple juice or grape juice. All I can say is ewwww...My solution for a better taste is Margarita Mix (my preference is the lime flavor)(was on top of my fridge so said, why not?). Everyone takes L-Arginine in a different way, so I suggest you take baby steps with the margarita mix to diminish the bad flavor of the product. If you are taking the recommended serving, you could probably use about 1 1/2 to 2 onces of the margarita mix.

                          Remember...margarita mix has sugar, so don't go too crazy on it.

                          Well, hope this helps you all some.

                                Of course it taste bad and smells bad. It is arginine! What did you all expect? You have to mix it with juice or shakes. I do mix it with my favorite Herbalife shake and it is perfect. I learned that if we take arginine everyday our levels of nitric oxide in our bodies will increase. I take arginine because of my high blood pressure. Taste or smells bad or not, does not matter, it is good for your health. And one more thing. I was not sure to buy this product because of you people complaining about the taste or smell. The first thing I did when I opened it was smell it. And you all wrong. There is nothing wrong with the product. I was shocked because it did not smell bad at all. So, stop complaining and take advantage of this product. If you want to know more about arginine, Google Dr. Louis Ignarro, Nobel Prize winner. He knows better.

                                    The powder form of l-arginine seems to work more effective than the pills that vitamin shoppe offers. At first i was taking the recommended dose the first thing in the morning 30min before i worked out. My workouts seem better but that could simply be from working out on a consistent basis. I would recommend not eating and hour before and/or an hour after to utilize it to it's maximum potential. Now I mix just a half of dose of this with a scoop of Quick Fire by Prolab. When I take them 30min before workout, I have seen a tremendous improvement in my workouts. I really don't need any time to recover. Give it a shot.

                                        Yes this product tastes brutal, but it works great. Just add it to some juice apple/grape, ect and it helps not taste as bad. Been taking for a week and already feel more energy before working out and just feel overall more awake. Also see more muscle added.

                                            Don't worry about the taste, after all it is a free form amino acid. I works great and it's cheaper than the pills in the same quantity. Also, your system will absorb it faster than pills. I combine it with powdered L- Glutamine. It will definitely enhance your workout.

                                                I have been taking powdered arginine for years. It gets into your system so much faster than capsules and especially tablets which can have a hard time breaking down in the gut. This stuff tastes horrible, but the pumps you get when you workout are great. It takes about a week to really notice. I take it on an empty stomach first thing in the morning then on an empty stomach before working out along with L-Citrulline. If you workout first thing in the morning take the arginine and citrulline before workout and the arginine before bed. I workout late at night before bed. After workouts I take a high protein drink (About 51 grams of protein) along with 3 grams of BCAA's and 5 grams of glutamine. So far so good!

                                                    This stuff is some of the most GOD awful tasting products I ever bared. If you can suck it up and drink it, your gonna be happy. This stuff really does work. Its priced good, easy to mix, and you get a lot for your dollar. I'd give it 5 stars if it didn't taste soo bad. I mix mine with about an once of cold water in a cup, pour it back n forth into another cup a few times and just suck it down. eww, but it works great.

                                                    Smells bad, tastes bad and you'd BETTER take it on an empty stomach and LEAVE your stomach empty until it works it way through your system. SERIOUS bathroom-breaks needed if you don't. I'd feel better about taking it if I were noticing any improvement of ANYTHING, but so far - nothing.

                                                        Yes it tastes bad. But it works. Add some powdered vitamin C to the water when you mix it up and it will take some of the bitterness out of the taste.

                                                        This product smells like old dirty, sweaty socks. When you mix it with anything, it overtakes the juice or water and tastes so bad. Do not waste your money on this product like I did! I will be buying the pill forms from now on.

                                                        Free form L-Arginine has the unbearable taste....the best is to take it with some L-Glycine, which is sweet in taste and somewhat nullifies that L-Arginine taste.

                                                        Absolutely right, the taste is ghastly. I opened a capsule of Solar Ray product and the taste is neutral. So war gives with this product?

                                                        Of course taste horrible. It is arginine. You have to take it mix with something. I do mix it in my favorite shake from Herbalife and it is perfect. I love the product and I do not complaint. Thank you.

                                                        L-Arginine, in high amounts, softens and flushes plaque from the arteries.

                                                        Best Answer: Hi Brian, I am not a doctor. I take L-arginine to increase the nitric oxide in my blood giving me a better pump. L-arginine does not increase testosterone. It is my understanding that when you have Glaucoma you need to avoid things that put pressure on your eyes. I think L-arginine would put too much pressure on your eyes. Ask your doctor. I take Tribulus Terrestris to increase my testosterone but I think this would be risky for you as well because if I take too much I get some heart racing. I am 52 years old. I hope this helps.
