Some of us use L-Arginine, a supplement , taken with our ED pills, to increase the production of and adsorption of nitric oxide, a vital component in the erection process. It appears there's some side benefits to taking it. I have taken 2000mg daily for 3 years now. Looks like I need to add L-citrulline to the mix, after proper research and DD, of course.

James,

One alert for all of us who have used VasoFlow religiously as our L-Arg supplement. Apparently the Manufacturer discontinued producing it and not many web sites have any (and I am not sure I want a old batch that's been lying around for months or years since it will also be lying around in my fridge for 6-12 months more before using it all up).

I have not started looking for a substitute yet. If anyone has used another L-Arg gel-cap brand (with a similar patented “PH-Controlled-Nano-Dissolution Delivery-System” like Vasoflow!!) that they like please let us know.

There seem to be dozens of competing ones -- which to buy??

There are several suitable alternatives to VasoFlow on the healthfood and vitamin store shelves. Look in the muscle support section. Vaso was bought by one of the bigger manufacturers....wish I could recall which.

James,

Walnuts are very high in Arginine

1 whole walnut has approx 100mg of Arginine

1/4 cup has 1.5 grams

or take a few pills

There are 3 L-Arginine Suppliments ( best if taken along with L-Ornithine and L-Citrulline for maximum synthesis)

1) L-Arginine is the most common, cheapest and least absorbing
2) Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate much more absorbable
3) L-Arginine Ethyl Ester, fastest possible absorption, hardest to locate unless online

or see my earlier post at

www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=35&m=1770514
Stats:
Age: 52, PSA (2008)=1.9
Biopsy on 01/09/09, Gleason Score = 3+3
One (1) out of twelve (12) cores was positive, plus external nodule found
Surgery (Da Vinci, robotic prostatectomy): 4/7/09
Post Op Path 3+3
Removed Catheter: 04/19/09
100% bladder control - Pad free 7/09
PSA 7/09 undetectable, <0.01 - 3 months post-op
PSA 1/10 undetectable, <0.01 - 9 months post-op
Trimix provides 100% erectile function

Gimper .... I checked Vasoflow and it has a pretty sophisticated formula - not just a single type of L-Arg ... Not trying to advertise for it (hah, you can't buy it anymore anyways).
But if you see any with similar stats ... (not this is for SIX capsules as one server -- way
more than we need). Seems to have both (2) and (3) as you mentioned above -- one for sustained release ... one for quick release.
