If you have the caps, take 2 before bed.  Powder about a quarter teaspoon...
Push it to the limit.

I was wondering if I should get the 1000 mg pills or the 500. I guess I'll get the 1000 and take 2

Here's a question, would it be better to take l-arginine OR Arginine AKG before bed?? Studies show benefits of both, etc but what about this??

Agreed. NOW L-arginine tastes really gross I think. I could hardly put it down when I added it to my Purple Wraath.

I take 5g before bed... only when I feel like I need though... Right now going through a bottle of OL NuSoma so I don't take arginine before bedtime.

On the taste thing there are ways around it...mix it with something.  ;)

Would it still be useful to take it before bed if you also take casein protein with skim milk? Because zma is supposedly rendered useless due to the calcium, thanks

Believe me I tried. I don't have a problem with taste ever but, nothing masks that taste and grittyness. I'm open to suggestions.

Are you asking about ZMA or Arginine?

ZMA. Take the dose of ZMA 45min to an 1 hour before your bedtime Casein shake

Arginine. Depending on the Arginine you have...

Regular AAKG: 30 min before shake
Sci Fit Nitrox  15 min before shake (note: not Nitrox II but Nitrox ...it's pH buffered AAKG)

Dorsey,

I'll go one better. Ornithine produces twice the HGH arginine does. I take 3g before bed along with 5g glutamine and 25g casein for protein throughout the night.
