Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Energy Boost Very few products have had as good effect, More energy ana vitality. Take it every day with citrulline. The antioxidants are uniquely effective as regular arginine has little effect for me. Just wondering why there isn't ornithine in this as with most arginine supplements?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anti-Catabolic Sustainance This is fantastic for helping maintain a positive nitrogen balance and thereby preserve your hard earned muscle mass. I absolutely love this product. The only thing negative I have to say is the price is kind of steep... Overall, great job Swanson!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timed-Release Real-AKG Arginine I take it for health reasons it helps me and has a lasting effect, I haven't found anything like it for the money and quality,Mike willington ct.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Arginine Delivery system This product packs a lot into such a little pill-- the supporting nutrients are all linked to assisting in arginine uptake. Combined with a timed release, it's a great pill in theory AND in practice. As a weight lifter, I'd love to take it a little more regularly, so if it was just 2 or 3 dollars cheaper, I'd be giving it 5 stars in every category.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding I've had an incredible energy boost since taking this supplement. As I approach 60 years old my workouts have been declining. But since taking this supplement, within days both cardio and resistance training have improved significantly.
