Thorne Research has great products but as with any supplement, everyone reacts differently. I gave 1 star not because of the quality of the product, but because of my body's reaction to taking it. Unfortunately, I guess I am sensitive to L-Arginine beacuse after taking only 1 capsule (recommended dose is 2 capsules), the next day I ended up with cold sore blisters on my cheek. For anyone who has had cold sores on their lips or face, I wouldn't recommend this.

My use of this product is to maintain my blood, and because it is a natural product. I have used Perfusia for many years and found it very good, I will never stop using it

I read of this product in Robert E Kowalski's book take the pressure off your heart and having only taken 2/3 of the tablets my BP has reduced significantly eg. 145/90 to 130/80. I have not discussed this with my medico yet but will at my next checkup.

Although this supplement could help blood pressure, I find it a bit expensive due to the sustained released formulation, but this formulation sounds like an important factor for this amino acid. I suggest reading the following book which I first ordered that talks abouts different supplements like this one, and much more information. Even if you must take blood pressure medication, supplements such as this one may have long term health benefits for the cardiovascular system, and may keep the need for more blood pressure medication at bay.

I have been using the Perfusia SR L Arginine for several months now, 2 caps morning and 2 or 3 at bedtime (along with a sustained release magnesium both times)and it is working better than the blood pressure med I had been on (and stopped) and with no side effects. I would definitely recommend this product. It takes a little while to see the full effect but is well worth it. I discovered it in reading a book about how to control blood pressure naturally in eight weeks. I believe in natural products whenever possible. (Key West, FL)

Haven't read how they delay the release of the powder in a capsule form, but the effects are very good and even. Using as a body detox, and experiencing the effect of ammonia removal in a distinct way. Combining with K4 liquid from Thorne since I have to watch my mild bleeding potential.
