Well, we have a new L-Arginine procuct that has made it to the top 3. So great job L-Arginine X. L-Arginine X is manufactured by Xtreme Health Products. Let’s talk about how we came up with their grade in the L-Arginine X review:
Value – 2.9
L-Arginine X only comes in a 13 ounce jar but can be purchased in four different packages. The first package is a single 13 ounce jar selling for $39.99. The second package is sold at $119.00 for three, 13 ounce jars (39 ounces). Then there is the four, 13 ounce jar package that sells for $156.99 (52 ounces). Last but not least you have their largest package which retails for $229.00 for six 13 ounce jars (78 ounces). Here is the price breakdown per ounce for the three packages: The single jar is $3.08 per ounce, the package of three jars lowers it to $3.05 per ounce, the four jar package lowers it further to $3.02 per ounce and thier best deal on the L-Arginine X, excluding sales or promotional pricing, is the six jar package at $2.94 per ounce.
Taste/Flavor – 2.9
L-Arginine X tasted okay for a supplement. The Citrus Berry flavor was somewhat similar to Arginine Infusion with a little bit of a bitter taste. Some of the staff complained of the aftertaste but there wasn’t any universal disdain for it. One problem we found is when we mixed L-Arginine X in watter , the powder always seemed to crystalize or clump up no matter how much you stirred it and then the clumps would collect at the botom of the cup. When you finished drinking, you got all the residue in that last swallow. Considering just the taste and not the residue in the last swallow we gave it a 2.9 on Taste/Flavor.
Nutrition – 3.7
Finally we will end with the good: the nutritional component. L-Arginine X has done quite well with the nutritional value. In addition to the L-arginine, L-citrulline, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin K and Folate (Folic Acid) traditionally found in L-Arginine products, L-Arginine X also contains Grape Skin Extract or Resveratrol, Red Wine Extract, D-Ribose, Magnesium and 72 Trace Mineral. Well done L-Arginine X! considering all the nutritional value L-Arginine X contained we came up with a grade of 3.7 for the nutritional grade.
Extra Credit Points or Additional Grade Point Deductions
We did feel that a deduction of -0.2 grade points is in order for two things. -0.1 for the fact that when we went to the manufactures website, they advertised certian pricing and free shipping for bulk purchases but we couldnt find who sold L-Arginine X at that rate. It did seem like you might be able to purchase L-Arginine X on the manufactures website but we couldnt find where and were forced to look for a distributor we thought reflected the best pricing and best selection in packages. In addition, we had to deduct -0.1 grade point for the fact that we could not seem to get L-Arginine X to fully disolve in water which caused that horrible last swallow.
