L-Arginine, L-Carnitine

Hi, new to the forum though I have been training for nearly 3 years.
 
I have been reading about L-Carnitine and L-Arginine and purchased Lamberts 500mg L-Carnitine and Solgar 500mg L-Arginine.  They both say to take one capsule a day, though I have read on the web that 3-5 grams of Arginine should be taken a day.
 
How much of each would you take, considering I train 5 x a week?
 
Many thanks for your help.

    Not for the last year.  I eat 5-6 protein rich meals a day.

    So you'll be getting enough L-carnitine from your diet?

    500mg of Arginine isnt nearly enough, most of that will be useless as well.
     
    heres a quote
    “A drawback to administering L-arginine orally to elevate plasma levels of L-arginine is that a large portion of the L-arginine passes through the gastrointestinal tract and the hepatic portal system where it is catabolized by arginase in to ornithine and urea...”
     
    AAKG is much better as your body will use more of it  , I take 5 grams a day every day. I use powder not tablets.
     
    Solgar are a good make but your really paying top dollar for that as well . Can get better for cheaper.
