Lysine

Recommended Posts

Kev003

Looking for results people have had using Lysine for HSV-2.  Also dosage recommendations.  I'm a 190-200 lb male, thinking 2000mg/day, half in the morning and the other half in the evening.  

I've been having OBs since 2011, usually about 1 a month.  Hoping to at least cut the OBs in half.

You will need to review the information yourself, but I have have a couple of problems surrounding lysine.

First there is no evidence that arginine contributes to an increased outbreak frequency. Once I learnt that, it was enough for me to stop using lysine. The other issue is that the correct intake of arginine is necessary for correct body function for an increasingly identified number of systems, such as your heart! Emerging research suggests there are benefits to increasing 

Even if you were to believe that arginine was an issue, in most diets there is already a surplus of lysine. The average intake of arginine is about 5g a day, the average intake of lysine is 20g a day. What would 2g extra of lysine actually do is a question worth considering.

This treatment should be on an empty stomach, like in between meals for best results.

      Ok. That's true. I would def. use protection but i was just thinking I should say something. I haven't made an decisions yet so nothing has happened. And also thanks for your response.

      Im thinking alot of one night stands are usually ppl you dont know. So i assume alot of ppl take the risk and have protected sex or even unprotected sex knowing they will never see thst person ever again. Especially if the transmission rate is low while using protection

      I mean by that same logic anybody would be crazy to have sex with us ever  lol ppl we end up in relationships with are at risk the most aren't they? Since that would mean regular sex...  I'm asking to see if anybody has ACTUALLY disclosed to a one night stand because I've read on other sites that ppl have done it but most are blogs like the one here https://www.emilydepasse.com/eldsoul/2018/3/25/ask-emily-dating-with-herpes where basically the writer is responding to a question vs me actually having the ability to talk to the person who actually has the experience

      http://www.eligiblemagazine.com/2013/03/14/lube-up-with-coconut-oil/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10813049 https://www.drgonzalezmd.com/avoid-secondary-herpes-infections-with-coconut-oil/   Coconut Oil has been shown to contain alot of antiviral properties. Herpes simply cannot survive in it, however I'm curious at how effective it is at preventing herpes transmission during sex, and if it'd make you near invincible. Herpes during sex is transmitted through skin to skin friction which coconut oil significant reduces.  Also if the virus were to leave the carrier's body it would get caught up in the layer of oil and killed. But how fast? Also, The lube drys out as you rub against each other, so you'd have to keep re-applying every so often.   Depending on the intensity of the sex, the coconut oil will get thoroughly rubbed into the persons skin layers, which'd mean the virus undoubtedly be on the persons skin and flesh. But, Theoretically, The virus should be dead/inactive due to being surrounded by the anti viral coconut oil, so it wouldn't even be able to crawl into their body to infect.   We need to get a bunch of lab mice or monkey, Infect 2 with herpes (Control and Test groups) , cover the test group in coconut oil, and let them have sex. If the test group shows less herpes transmission rates than that means that Coconut oil decreases STD TRANSMISSION!   Why hasn't this been done yet? Even if it didn't reduce transmission by 100%, 50% would lower std rates significantly.
