Arginine AKG Powder Lemon Flavored
I had been buying the now foods powder but the taste was horrible. This one tastes good. Two suggestions:
Add 1000 mg of citrulline
Sell it in a two pound can so that we do not need to order so frequently.
I have used this combination following Dr. Ignarro's book "Say yes to NO" and i can tell you that it works.

This product rocks.! I enjoy this wonderful lemon taste and you do not even know it is arginine. I find that if I take 5grms one scoop 1 hr before workout it allows long lasting strength and if you take 3 to 4 scoops even better. To me it is not harsh on the stomach but in high doses to other maybe like diarrhea. So start at one scoops and test it out. So many benefits from arginine. If you take this at night 1 hour before sleep try to take 15 grams and if you take orthine with this at 5 grams you have a great little stack to release natural growth hormone from your own body. it will help you sleep better and recovery and help with building lean muscle. Do it for a month then take a couple weeks off then continue over and over again works great become younger from the inside out.

I love the flavor and quality of this powder. I would like to see this formulation include citrulline as well though so I wouldn't have to take it separately. This helped me get through 4 hour physio sessions.

Taste and effect are "Wow"
The great taste of this powder encourages its use prior to body building. It mixes easily in water and, most importantly, is truly effective in energizing me!

I am completely happy with my purchase of this product from Swanson because of the taste. I've tried other arginine powders that are completely undrinkable. I love the taste of this product and the pump I get during my workouts with it.

The Arginine AKG powder is a good product. The lemon flavor is pleasant. I use in conjunction with citrulline malate powder. Great pumps during workouts.

I have found this formula excellent for cardiac metabolic support. The lemon flavor is subtle and the powder dissolves readily.

this product is a good dosage and good price, for what you get, plus no artificial sweetners is a bonus. I have been taking typical preworkout formulas for years and they never put the amount of each ingrediant on the label. From now on i will be buying form here, at least i know what im getting. I have noticed good results from this product as well.

Good before workouts
I like to take this along with a couple Swanson Premium L-Citrulline Malate Complex capsules, and Swanson's MSM powder before working out at the gym. I work out on the elliptical machine for 30 minutes. Then I lift weights on various machines and have a lot of reserve for those last few pumps - more than without it for sure. I agree with the product description that says It improves circulation by helping the body produce nitric oxide.

I've been purchasing expensive products at GNC for my pre-workout routine. After a little more research it appears that the two most important ingredients are AAKG and caffeine. This product tastes just fine, nothing bitter when mixed with water and the effects appear to be the same as the fancy GNC product. So if you're worried about the taste, don't be.

Okay, let me get the one downer out of the way with this powder: it tastes pretty bitter. The only way your palate will be able to regularly tolerate this is by adding it to something sweet and flavorful. I only take this in the evening for the hGh enhancing effect, and I add one scoop (included) to about 6-8 oz of either sweet green tea, gatorade or cran/apple juice - then it's fine.
As to the effect, wow! First, it allows me to sleep like a log. Second, the "effect" I get when I awake in the morning, well, let's just say it allows my wife and I to get a bit frisky!
I truly believe it's also helped with my endurance when exercising and perhaps weight loss although I'm not sure if there is a direct correlation with the weight loss, but I definitely believe an indirect one.
The price for this much powder is also great. Try and compare it to other brands you'd find in health food stores, and make sure you'd be getting the 5gm per scoop that you get in this product.
If Swanson could just work on improving the taste this would be a grand slam!

What a great way to enjoy your suntea made with different flavors of Organic India Tulsi Teas and Lemon flavored Arginine powder, all from Swansons. I am a 74yo, on no meds, who has enjoyed Swanson Products for lots of years. I tell everybody about Swanson's the best Price-Product-Service.

I know a lot of bodybuilders who use Nitric Oxide, and spend a lot of money on that supplement. I never got any results from NO. But I get fantastic results with arginine, and it is less expensive. Why? Because arginine converts to NO, that's why.
I was taking a scoop at night, but I recently saw a video from an old time bodybuilder who recommended adding another in the morning upon awakening. My workouts were outstanding. My recovery time was quicker and my endurance increased.
The only drawback to the product is the scoop. The handle needs to be longer as it is difficult to scoop out the portions as I get further down the can,

I have found this product to be beneficial. Not only that but it is good tasting. Many times I add a scoop to a glass of water along with a little powered stevia and ice cubes, making a very pleasant drink. Sometimes I add a scoop to my whey milkshake to give it a little different flavor. Tastes good.

AMAZING AKG ARGININE
I have used L-Arginine as a muscle building Amino Acid for decades, from back in the days when I pumped a lot of iron. More recently, since I don't work out like I used to, I still take L-Arginine along with L-Ornithine not only to maintain general muscle strength and tone, but also for my heart, the busiest, hardest-working muscle in the body. I had been taking Swanson's 900 mg. L-Arginine capsules until I found this Amazing AKG Arginine lemon-flavored powder. Not only does it have a surprisingly good lemony taste when stirred into water, 1 teaspoonful of the powder gives me as much L-Arginine as I would have had to take 6 of the big 900 mg. capsules to receive. To me that is an awesome win-win every day.

My product rating has nothing to do with the actual product effectiveness, but with the sweetness level. Cut back on the Xylitol, its too sweet. I wasn't able to dilute the powder, so as I would be able to drink it.My wife, who has a sweet tooth, found the very diluted version intolerable. How about an unsweetened version, I can handle that. L Arginine powder is a great idea, maybe needs a little tweeking.

This is great to have in a powder, and I don't understand the complaints about taste. I think it has an enjoyable taste. My small complaint would be that it is hard to reach down into the jar with the little scooper, and I think it could cost a little less.

Great primer for workouts!
I take a scoop of this in water about 30min before my workouts and I feel my body is ready to go, even if I'm sore! No jitters or elevated heartrate. Just seems like my body is now ready for the task at hand. For the fantastic price and none of the effects I get from N.O. products, this is such a bargain!

works great but has side effects
This product tastes great and really helps with the workouts but unfortunately it caused my skin to itch. Had to stop using it and am looking for a non arginine substitute.

Not what I expected
I use Argenine regularly and have very good results with it. Unfortunately, the AKG form shows no results that I can tell.
With the normal form I see results in as little as 20 min, but I might as well take a spoonful of sugar as the Argenine AKG.
In all fairness, I have an absorption problem, and perhaps the AKG form is simply not taken up by my system, but to me it seems a useless waste of money.

Dissolves instantly. It is sweet but it actually is a plus (for me) since I mix it with a different Swanson powder supplement which is bitter so it levels the taste.
Hard for me to be honest about effectiveness since I've been using it for such a short period of time. With that said I would recommend it because Swasnson's "stuff" never let me down and if it did, they have their amazing return policy!

"I love Swanson Premium Products"
This Arginine AKG powder sure is a great product. I workout a lot and if you are looking into purchasing Arginine, give this product a chance, you wont be sorry you did.
March 22, 2012
This is the only Arginine powder that I've been able to take without making a terrible face, or worse. And it's at least as effective as any other as well. I've just ordered two more jars.
