I have used this product more than 20 times in the past 2 months. I have always gotten headaches, nausea, and continuous ***** for about 5 hours. I've occasionally got diarrhea too. I'm done using it. I didn't feel too much of the pump either. However, everyone's body is different! My workout partner also used it without complaints. I'm going to switch over to another AAKG!

I have taken this for over one year, I mix with my pre-workout drink 1/2 teaspoon, It makes a much better pump and helps with my heavy leg workout day, at the end of the week.

I just spoke with a nutritionist at NOW Foods and learned that they are purchasing some of their raw materials for their supplements at facilities located in China.. Their AAKG is one of them. However,NOW Foods are still putting 'Made in USA' on the bottle because they "check" for impurities here in the United States at their GMP facility.

Excellent price for this product! Works comparable to any other AAKG product out there! Has a very mild bitter taste but dissolves easily in water with no gritty aftertaste. Mix it with a shot of powdered Gatorade in warm water and gulp it down, 20 seconds and you are done!

I love this stuff! It's price is awesome and I'm getting what most products charge double for and you get a fraction of the dose. I dont like a lot of caffeine so the fact that this is pure arginine without being bloated with caffeine is what i love about it. Pumps and vascularity are just as good if not better than with other supps. and the taste is just fine for me, not delicious, but then again most other pre-work out supps just taste sour or bitter to me. just mix this with some vitamin water or something tasty and you're good to go

Very strong taste of Fish. Ruins taste of shakes when added, almost impossible to take by itself with water/juice. After researching arginine, I found that this is a characteristic that isn't exclusive to the NOW brand. I don't consider myself very sensitive to taste, but this stuff made me gag.
