Firstly, I'd like to say I'm interested in the stuff. I tend to respond well to GDAs and the price is incredibly fair. I just have one question.
Why the norvaline? It has currently been established that arginine is pretty much useless for upping NO in healthy humans. Norvaline is an arginase inhibitor, so really its just another way of increasing plasma arginine.... so what am I missing?
Does it do more than inhibit arginase?

Arginine suffers (basically) two fates...degraded by Arginase or converted by iNOS into NO. While exogenous arginine doesn't necessarily change this bottleneck, inhibiting Arginase does.

Think of it like this... inhibiting the arginase will only give you the one option to go to N.O.
Simple process of elimination to get to where you wanna go
