I recently tried a nitric oxide stimulator (NOS) as a workout supplement and had a flare up of herpes as a side effect. The common ingredient in these products is arginine which I learned causes the herpes virus to replicate. I've read some claims that lysine can counteract this side effect of arginine. Can anyone confirm that this works? If so, what is the best ratio of arginine to lysine? Are there any other strategies that would allow me to use an NOS product without getting an outbreak of herpes?
