We have done dozens of reviews on different l-arginine products. Each of them is different–either coming in powder or pill form. Many people ask what the differences are between l-arginine pills compared to powder, so we’re going to help clear up some of the questions.
L-Arginine Pills Compared to Powder
For the most part, despite which form you take your l-arginine supplements, they will have the same effectiveness as long as the ingredients are similar.
For many, it’s more of a personal preference of which to take, depending on which one is easiest for them. Obviously, pills are easier to take on the go, while powder supplements can be easily added to morning smoothies.
While the supplements largely deliver the same results, there are small differences that separate them.
For example, powder supplements seem to be able to include more ingredients, such as vitamins, trace minerals, and extracts. Pills generally keep to just l-arginine and l-citrulline in some.
Additionally, with pills, you need to take quite a few throughout the day to get the full recommended dose. Powder supplements generally need to only be taken once or twice per day.
L-arginine pills compared to powder supplements tend to be less expensive as well. Mostly because they don’t always have added ingredients.
