High quality and strong enough (50 % epa&dha) fish oil are good products but high arginine can raise prob of herpes outbreak.
Avoid arginine containing food such as nuts and chocolate. Lysine supplement will help balance arginine out. Fish oil studies show benefit for cardio, joints, skin, eyes, and inflammation. Peace and good health.
