Arginine useful for PCOS?


Jan 20, 2015
From what I understand l-arginine increases nitric oxide formation, I started supplementing it before I knew this (new to Peat, discovering something new every day it seems :shock: ) but it has really seemed to help my hypoglycemia a month in. Also my cysts are all but gone (could also be the low dose progesterone, but the progesterone I started already three months ago and it did not affect the hypoglycemia much).

I found some studies that would support this:

Any thoughts from expert peaters? Maybe if you are deficient in l-arginine or your needs of it are greater it is ok, or is it a big no-no always?
