Re: Lysine vs. Arginine in one's diet
I've been taking niacin and lysine for two weeks, and I was so happy from the results, it was healing unbelievable, until yesterday I ate a chicken pot pie, I told my mom how I had another out-break, and was feeling bad, she told me it could have been something I ate, so I started doing some research, the chicken pot pies had a lot of peas and carrots, and the arginine is higher than lysine, both peas and carrots, plus I have a cold, so my outbreak could have been from a combination of the three, now that I have a list of foods that tells me the ratios in the lysine and arginine, I'm going to stick with a good nutrition diet, lysine vs arginine. Excercise staying healthy and staying on your diet, be careful what you eat, cause what you eat can cause the outbreaks, common colds and some say sunlight, if you type in what is (arginine) you'll be surprise what you 'll come across that may help you.
Good luck, try not to worry so much it only makes things worst, things will get better.
