Ejaculation Volume and L-Arginine
Dearest Doctor Mac,<br><br>I am writing to you because I am a young man who does not have a problem with the volume of my Ejaculations but I wouldlike to increase the overall volume. My question is I have heard from a certin doctor that a supplement called L-Arginine will increase your overall volume. This supplement can be found all over but when taken in amounts of 500mg daily and 1000mg before sex it will seriously increase your ejaculation volume. Is there any truth to this if not is there a way to increase this??????????

Semen is a combination of sperm and secretions of the seminal vesicle, prostate gland, and bulbo-urethral glands. On average, when ejaculating, the male releases 2.5 - 6 milliliters of semen, including approximately 50 - 100 million spermatozoa per milliliter. Semen is produced every day. What you need to know is that when engaging in multiple daily ejaculations, the amount of semen decreases with each ejaculation. On the other hand, if you wait a couple of days and abstain from releasing, more semen will build up, providing a larger amount of ejaculate.

The active ingredient l-arginine is an amino acid found in dairy products that increases blood flow to the genital area, whether this will increase the volume, well I doubt that, but it might increase sensation.
