Conflicting Lysine-Arginine ratios in food

Recommended Posts


So in trying to figure out what foods I'm eating that might be high in arginine and increasing my outbreaks, after scouring the internet for hourd theres definitely ALOT of conflicting information! As an example one source will say grapefruit is high in Arginine and another will say its high in Lysine. I understand any given food can have both in them and its the ratio we're looking for but some lists don't have the ratio or some lists only a very limited amounts of food. Is there any books or online sources of more foods listing the real Lysine-Arginine ratio?

I find I get out breaks with mainly chocolate, coffee, wheat products like bread, pasta, junk food. Peanut butter and nuts is also a trigger. I found if I stick to a diet of mainly meats, vegetables, fruit, potatoes for carbs I tend not to get breakouts, but once I go back to the other foods I tend to get an out break. Dunno if that might help you

I have found this website to be helpful- http://nutritiondata.self.com/   There is a search at the top where you type in the food and search.

Most charts I have run across have conflicting information or articles that tell you to eat one thing that another does not.  I have found that it is a lot of trial and error and eating things in moderation.  Hope this helps out some!

      Who said it was hard to believe? It's possible that it causes some Alzheimer's but its also possible that herpes merely takes advantage of a brain weakened by Alzheimer's rather than being the causative agent. This theory is a well-documented by experts. The fact is that they have no proof either way. Links do not prove anything and are often proven incorrect as causative agents. To further complicate things, they fully expect that Alzheimer's may have several causes. Therefore, the best way to handle it at the moment may be to reverse the damage with a cure which would likely work for all causes or at least most. It may be easier to fix for now and then prevent later as they learn more about the various causes. They may be on the brink of that now.

      I have to agree. Only American companies are under the jurisdiction of the FDA but why do they extend their influence over all treatments and medicines globally cos they are corrupt yeah. Makes sense

      Dear Mike, I have access to academic resources. If you would like to have a look at the original report, you can tell me your email. Note that it's only for personal use of HSV cure research survey.

      In my opinion the FDA are the biggest scammers out there. From my side as a mother who had to see my Daughter be infected because of the terrible misrepresentation of Pharmaceutical medications (Valtrex) I think that the FDA has a lot to answer for.  They take their funding and bonus's to approve dangerous medications which have later turned out to be deadly.  They approve and endorse sugar with no limitation or regulation although it's the biggest cause of heart disease, diabetes and obesity.  All because they are part of the bigger business scams out there to keep the population dependent on antivirals for life.  I know I would much rather a natural solution for my Daughter than the toxic medications the FDA endorse.
