Question: L-Arginine HELP URGENT


 Peters - Wed Mar 16, 2005 3:25 am

Hello,

I am feeling a little worried, I bought L-Arginine 300grams a bottle powder. On the internet when I ordered it it was a picture of the company: NOW and when I got it home it was a whole diffrent bottle by the company: S.A.S Labs. Why where there diffrent looking bottles? And also why doesnt it say on the bottle storage temprature and such like it says on other stuff I have bough before? Can it be something fishy.
Please someone tell me how real arginine should taste and smell. this stuff has a sharp taste and smells like sperm.

//thanks in advance

User avatar Hi Peters,
I would be quite hesitant on consuming a product purchased on the internet. There have been reports of products being sold that are imposters (so to speak). I would strongly suggest that if your looking for a product to purchase it from a pharmacy or a reputable health food store. Do not take something that varies so significantly from a product that you have taken before.
Sincerely,
Rntdj

User avatar Hello Peters,
The L-Arginine pills that I have administered, I don't recall a peculiar smell (I haven't tasted them) and the powder has a fruity taste and smell.
Sincerely,
Rntdj
