Let’s take a look at the Forever ARGI+ by Forever Living for today’s review. To sum up what we have found, It is a decent product at a very high price. This product is only sold in one size which is a 10.6 ounce canister; let’s break it down.
Value – 1.0
Forever ARGI+ can be purchased on line for about $5.72 per ounce which is the most expensive L-Arginine product we have reviewed to date. We came to this number by taking the price we paid from the manufacturer, which was $60.60 and divided it by the size of the canister, 10.6 ounces (which apparently is the only size). Because of this high price, we were forced to give it a grade point of 1.0 for Value.
Taste/Flavor – 2.8
As always, taste is an individual preference, so we would love to hear your views. We actually liked the taste of ARGI+ which is a berry blend similar to Arginine Infusion and L-Arginine X. It even mixed exactly like Arginine Infusion; It started as a dark blue color but turned a light reddish purple once you stirred it in. Unlike Arginine Infusion which dissolved quite completely, we found is that ARGI+ would not completely dissolve in the water. No matter how much we stirred, a good portion of the powder would settle at the bottom. In theory, that shouldn’t affect the taste, yet we found ourselves gagging down the last little bit. No one felt it deserved top ranks on flavor because of the last few swallows, but no one said it was the worst they had tried. After deducting a few grade points for lack of ‘disolvability’, we gave it a 2.8 on Taste/Flavor.
Nutrition – 3.0
5 grams of L-Arginine is right where we want to be for a single serving which is exactly what Forever ARGI+ contains. ARGI+ also contained a few of the other nutrients we are looking for in a L-Arginine product. These include Grape Skin Extract or Resveratrol, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin K and Folate (Folic Acid). One ingredient that was noticeably absent was L-Citrulline. ARGI+ is the first L-Arginine product we have reviewed that did not contain L-Citrulline which we felt was very unfortunate. Some of the other ingredients that were missing from ARGI+ were D-Ribose and Magnesium (follow the links to read about the benefits of these missing ingredients) Considering all the nutritional value Forever ARGI+ contained we came up with a grade of 3.0 for the nutritional grade.
Extra Credit Points or Additional Grade Point Deductions
To be consistent with our other reviews, we are giving Forever ARGI+ 0.1 extra grade point for containing Xylitol as a sweetener because it helps the health of your teeth. But we feel it is our obligation to let you know that many of our readers have claimed that the Xylitol also causes gas or bloating when digested.
