    Hello All

    I have been doing some reading on Amino Acids that help with growth hormone

    Argenine Ornithine and Citroline

    Argenine is effective but it makes my skin break out on the fingertips area and it's very uncomfortable

    When i eat to many dairy products I get a similar reaction

    Is there someway I can adjust the ratio of these three supps to minimize the "side effects"

    Thanks All

    Did you check for any filler ingredients? Didn't know there was amino acids specific for HGH. Maybe should try a bit myself, my illness caused my test levels to drop below 150 at certain points.

    I didn't check
    I could be that it's an inferior quality or it had fillers

    Most of the time people seem to react more to fillers and stuff then the actual ingredient itself, definitely worth ruling out.

    I don't know if this is the same product or pertains to you but my ND said that L-Arginine can increase or worsen herpes viruses so in my case w/EBV I was not able to take it.

    What kind of breakout? Arginine might reactivate and promote herpes virus infections. These can sometimes manifest as skin problems.

    Try to take it with similar amounts of lysine and see if that helps. Arginine, lysine and ornithine usually go together. Citruline is an arginine precursor, you don't need both.

    What kind of skin breakouts?
    It's always the ends of the fingers surrounding the fingernails
    If I eat to much Dairy products I have the same reaction so I don't know if it's the fillers
    could be argenine just doesn't agree with me
    I wonder if I would get good results just using citroline and ornithine
    What I am trying to achieve is more growth hormone at night and more testosterone
    I need to keep my strength up as I get older because for me retirement is not an option
