Recommended Posts

So I've been hearing alot of good things about Lysine lately. Does anyone here use it? Does it really cut obs in half?

It’s a vague topic. In the 1960s some researchers found that lysine seemed to reduce culture growth of the virus in a dish. Other researchers then found over a longer period that the virus flourished as well as normal cultures without lysine added.

From then lysine was suggested although no explanation as to how or why if ingested by a human it would do anything. Some human experiments with placebo and lysine groups have been undertaken and the majority show no impact.

Depending on your diet, you are eating from 10-30g of lysine a day already. Adding a gram from a tablet doesn’t add a lot.

No.

I doubt it has any effect at all, at least with any balanced diet. If your diet is deficient in lysine... well, you are going to have malnutrition problems anyway.

      a week ago, I went to lab and get my test done for STD. everything is clear on the test except HSV 1.   Ranges are  <0.90 - Negative 0.90-1.09 - Equivocal >1.09 - Positive   And My result for HSV 1 seems to be too high    it is HSV 1 IGG, TYPE SPECIFIC AB 56.90 H ( OUT OF RANGE ) I was paid for this test (full std) everything came back negative except hsv 1, after I seen the result, I called my doctor to made an appointment to discuss this matter. I will most likely request a test from my doctor and have him to check this out.  It's been 3 years I was in USA and had sex just a couple times.   I never had unprotected sex since like 10 years. I was in USA for 3 years now and like i said never had sex unprotected almost for 10 years. Received oral for 5-6 times.   Here is the picture :  The purple marks on my legs are stretch marks due of doing weight lifting. I do have so many of them on my body. As you see in the picture, they are FLAT. not like a bump or pimple. I checked so many pictures on internet but I think mines don't look like herpes but I just want to know your thoughts about this.
