More about this report

L-arginine (also referred to as just arginine) is an amino acid that may increase blood flow and is promoted for improving symptoms of certain cardiovascular diseases, as well as for improving exercise and sports performance, and sexual function. But does arginine really help with all of these conditions? And, if it does help, which arginine supplements are best?
To answer these questions, carefully reviewed the clinical evidence, and purchased, tested, and compared popular arginine supplements. We found one product contained less L-arginine than claimed on the label. Among those that contained what they claimed, we identified those that provide the best value — making them our Top Picks.
We found the quality of products to be generally high. However, the suggested dosage of L-arginine for some products may not be effective for their expected use. We also found the cost of L-arginine varied among products, with some offering better value than others.

You'll get results for 18 L-arginine supplements: ten selected by and eight that passed the same testing in our voluntary Quality Certification Program.
