Arginine vs Agmatine
In another thread it broke out into this argument a bit. Just curious on what each person thinks between the two. I know Agmatine is the new hot variant of what Arginine turns into. Just curious a bit more on the science of the two. I know some people say that Agmatine helps skip a step and is a direct shot into your system. others say that your body won't process the Agmatine. Just wanting to get AM.com peeps opinions on the two.

Use both of them and see for yourself. Arginine cant even compare to agmatineBeast Sports Nutrition Representative

Personally ive dosed agmatine as high as 2grams per day with no results. Im going to try five next.
Citrulline malate blows both out of the water imo.

Funny how the body works...common sense would tell you take more arginine to raise NO. Take more glutamine increase glutamine in muscle.
Reminds me of when I hear people who have high cholesterol looking at labels and saying "i cant eat this, is has cholesterol in it". Doesn't work like that
The body is so unpredictable...and often oversimplified

I agree that oral arginine does feel like it enhances my pump...I dont know if its via vasodilation or not. I dont remember feeling vascular...just more full.
Maybe it is some indirect mechanism with HGH or something...who knows.

As for cholesterol, It's gotta be the genetic's factoring into that more so than diet. I strongly believe that. I can eat lousy, high saturated fats, and have no real negative impact on my cholesterol levels.....yet this guy I know, my parents friend, eats healthy and is skinny as hell and he has horrible cholesterol and artery problems. makes no sense.

Yes we get arginine in food, diet, etc...that has nothing to do with free form arginine raising NO.

Need some more research on it...
I have just gone through this topic and read all the comments above. I donít have much knowledge of the 2 arginine & agmatine, so I have to make research for it.
