Just thought I would share this with you….
I have been taking the above amino acid for the last month. However on Saturday last I took double my usual dose of 500mg ie. I took 1000mgs and guess what by Monday I have the recurence of a cold sore on my mouth. It is the largest and most painful one I have ever suffered. I need to balance l-arginine (which promotes the herpes virus replication) with l-lysine which inhibits it. The trouble is that l-arginine is in many of the foods which I love:- chocolate, nuts and cereals. Anyone had a previous experience I would like to hear about it.
