    Return it before you open it. For vascularity, look into Synthetic Supps Agmatine, SNS Citrulline Malate, PES Enhanced, or E-Pharm Pump Spray

    Agmatine for vascularity, but arginine does have other health benefits.

    This. However, when I add a few caps of arganine this equation (from some of my old stock), the effects are amazing. Arganine, seems to add another angle to this equation. Also, I have been using arganine on off workout days - just to use it up....but I am thinking of getting more. Does anyone know why I get a almost similar, but different reaction to this than agmatine / cit mal?

    Citrulline is a good addition. If that doesnt work for you give nitrates a try.

    I like arginine at 8g or so preworkout or prebed, but less than that has pretty minor effect for me. Tastes like crap without being capped too

    Not sure what dosage they came in, but I used ot use 6 x 750mg Arganine before a workout - anything less does not have enough affect. Arganine jacks me up - there is no way I could sleep if I took this pre-bed - I would caution at trying this. Add 10 grams or Cit Mal to this and you will have a good pump my friend. When done, Replace your Arganine with agmatine - to bring it to the next level.

    Personally, I like using 19g of bulk citrulline malate with 1 g of bulk agmatine. Much cheaper and a better pump (has more of the same ingredients that work for you in Heamavol). Heamavol also would make me tired or sleepy as well - not sure why, something in to bothered me. It has great reviews don't get me wrong.

    Lot's of users have reported improved vascularity while taking Hemavol. You should be able to find some pictures that people took during their workouts.

    Please, no one use 19g of citrulline malate. You will explode from every orifice below your waist.

    Didn't you just say you were using 10mg (which I hope you meant 10 grams) CM preworkout in another thread?

    He may have meant 10 now that I think he most likely mistyped the 0 for a 9 (they are next to each other)

    SNS citrulline malate and SNS agmatine together elicit a fantastic pump and great vascularity for sure. I don't use the two together on certain days due to painful pumps lol

    That would go well with some Citrulline Malate

    While I've always seen benefits from L-Arginine, it's become obsolete. As mentioned earlier, pick up some Synthetic Supps Agmatine, Biocor Citrulline or a pre-workout like Enhanced.

    I know Nutra is running a sick deal right now on Enhanced, you get some free Biocor Citrulline and some other goodies.
