    I like the short term help I get from creatine but....
    does the arginine in creatine foster HHV 6?

    Hi, restaurant.

    I don't think this is a problem. There is a sequence of reactions between arginine and creatine, and I don't think this reaction sequence is reversible. Also, there is a constant loss of 1-2 % of phosphocreatine every day as creatinine, which has to be replaced, and I think that would be a strong driving force in the forward direction for this reaction sequence.
