These research studies claim that L-Arginine supplementation may not be the ultimate path to boosting nitric oxide after all:
Acute L-arginine alpha ketoglutarate supplementation fails to improve muscular performance in resistance trained and untrained men. J Int Soc Sports Nutr. 2012 Apr 17;9(1):17. doi: 10.1186/1550-2783-9-17.
Bolus arginine supplementation affects neither muscle blood flow nor muscle protein synthesis in young men at rest or after resistance exercise. J Nutr. 2011 Feb;141(2):195-200. doi: 10.3945/jn.110.130138. Epub 2010 Dec 29.

Q: So if our bodies produce L-Arginine on their own, what can we do to maximize nitric oxide for more muscular endurance and larger pumps at the gym?
A: Inhibit the enzymes that breakdown nitric oxide (AgmaPure™), support L-Arginine synthesis by the body (L-Ornithine HCl) and slow down L-Arginine breakdown (L-Norvaline.) Then to top it off, take the highest concentration glycerol ingredient you can get your hands on (Hydromax™.)
HYDROMAX™, high concentration glycerol.
25% more glycerol than glycerol monostearate.
Supports cell volumization and growth.
May promote nutrient delivery.
AGMAPURE™ Agmatine Sulfate
The industry’s leading ingredient for promoting nitric oxide and pumps.
Inhibits NOS (nitric oxide synthase) which are enzymes that catabolize nitric oxide production.
Premium grade Agmatine Sulfate free from the harmful chemical Arcaine that is typically occurring as a result of Agmatine Sulfate production.
L-Norvaline is included to support the inhibition of L-Arginine breakdown.
Features L-Tyrosine & Choline Bitartrate for stimulant free focus or increasing the intensity of your favorite pre-workout.
L-Ornithine HCl supports L-Arginine synthesis by the body.
