    There is a novel theory that states that the cause of CFS is due to an overproduction of NO in the body. In such case wouldn't be L-arginine contraindicated?

    I was hoping to induce GH through L-arginine and L-Lysine.

    thanks for any opinions/experience

    I've read reports similiar to what you read too. On the other hand, I've seen researchers use it as treatment. Same with Oxytocin. Go figure.

    I do know that Arginine can cause Herpes viruses to reactivate, which could be a problem for some people. Lysine would oppose the Arginine.

    After taking this mega multivitamin that contained L-arginine, I was getting outbreaks of herpes all over my lips!!! Ok, I am a slow learner...L-Arginine CAN trigger outbreaks. Just be careful!!
