There are certain times in life when bigger doesn't necessarily mean better. Guys in the gym want bigger "pumps" when they do bicep curls, so they take L Arginine, or as it is commonly called "NO2." NO2 is a vaso-dilator which means that it makes your veins and arteries really big, thus lowering your blood pressure and filling your muscles with blood, making them appear bigger. Alcohol is also a vaso-dilator. While there is nothing inherently dangerous with vaso-dilators, as a whole, when two kinds are mixed, the results can be dangerous. Taking L Arginine with alcohol can dilate your veins so much that your blood pressure bottoms out to a dangerous level.
