Q. Why is L-arginine Plus® less expensive than other Nitric Oxide supplements?
A. Many suppliers charge what the market will bear. Our current business model, however, is to offer a superior product directly to you at the lowest possible prices. We hope you become a lifetime customer like so many others.
Q. Why are trace minerals important to the L-arginine Plus® formula?

The trace minerals included in L-arginine Plus support healthy pH levels in the stomach and throughout the digestive tract. Unbalanced pH levels can upset some people when they first begin a Nitric Oxide regiment. Additionally, these trace minerals, independently of L-arginine Plus, are known to have a positive effect to improve overall health and well-being.

A. For maximum benefit, L-arginine Plus® should be taken on an empty stomach. All benefits are certainly not lost by taking L-arginine Plus® with foods or beverages, but those benefits may be reduced.
Q. What is the product sweetened with? Can you describe the taste of L-arginine Plus?
A. L-arginine Plus® is sweetened with Xylitol. Xylitol is a low glycemic sweetener that occurs naturally in the body. High glycemic sweeteners can cause glycation, which can lead to decreased arterial flexibility. Unlike other sweeteners, xylitol has been shown to support saliva production and support overall oral health. With Xylitol included, L- arginine Plus offers a great-tasting grape flavor.
Q. Why is Xylitol Used in the L-arginine Formula?
A. L-arginine can cause the pancreas to release a hormone called glucagon. The pancreas produces glucagon as a means to increase blood sugar levels when they are too low. Glucagon makes the liver convert stored sugar (glycogen) to usable sugar (glucose) that is then released into the bloodstream. Using L-arginine along with xylitol, can keep L-arginine from stimulating the pancreas to release glucagon. Helping maintain balanced levels.

Q. What are the ingredients that make L-arginine Plus® so effective?
- Trace Minerals
5,110 mg L-arginine - Research has shown you need to consume 4,000 mg-6,000 mg of L-arginine in each serving to receive meaningful benefits. It is critical to read and compare labels when choosing a health supplement. L-arginine Plus® contains 5,110 mg of pure elemental L-arginine in each serving which is in the "sweet spot" to boost production of Nitric Oxide in the body. Unfortunately, many companies reduce the amount of ingredients in order to save money.
1,010 mg L-citrulline - Clinical trials published in the "British Journal of Nutrition" have established the effective amount of L-citrulline of at least 1,000 mg per serving, twice a day. These studies showed L-citrulline is critical in the production of Nitric Oxide because it acts like a catalyst when combined with L-arginine and extends the body's production of Nitric Oxide. Because L-citrulline is expensive, some manufacturers include minimal amounts and hide that fact by saying it is part of their proprietary blend. L-arginine Plus® is proud to say we use more than 1,000 mg in each serving.
Astragin is a 100% natural ingredient blend of two highly fractionated plant extracts, Panax notoginseng and Astragalus membrancous. This ingredient has been demonstrated to promote the absorption of L-Arginine and L-Citrulline amino acids by up to 66.7%. You would have to take TWICE as much of our competitors brand without Astragin to get the same benefits you'll see by taking L-arginine Plus.
L-arginine Plus® contains 100 mg of Trace Minerals in each serving. Just because they're called trace minerals doesn't mean they are not important. Quite the contrary, it simply means you require smaller daily amounts of these nutrients, in the case of some trace minerals, less than a milligram a day. Minerals taken in such tiny amounts are often measured in micrograms, or one-thousandth of a milligram.
Many customers who use other l-arginine products complain of upset stomachs. The trace minerals used in L-arginine Plus® are alkaline, not acidic, to prevent side effects. By adding these trace minerals to L-arginine Plus® we have attempted to normalized pH Levels in the stomach and throughout the digestive tract. Unbalanced ph levels may upset some people when they first begin a Nitric Oxide regiment.
