Q&A about the use of ProArgi9 and other conditions

by synergy

I’ve had many questions over the past months and below are the most commonly asked questions thus far.

Herpes and L-Arginine – I’m not sure where the research came from but there seems to be an issue where L-Arginine a key ingredient in ProArgi-9 plus cause the Herpes virus to multiply.

Response from Synergy : Theoretically, l-arginine may contribute to a herpes outbreak in an infected individual. Proteins of the herpes simplex virus are rich in L-arginine, and there are a few reports (mainly anecdotal) of those taking supplemental L-arginine who have had recurrences of oral herpes lesions. Although it is unlikely that those with a history of herpes simplex virus infection will have recurrences if they use L-arginine supplements, they should nevertheless be aware of this possibility.

If an individual tries the product and develop an outbreak, we recommend either discontinuing the product or trying a reduced dosage, or taking a l-lysine supplement along with ProArgi-9 Plus (for optimal absorption of each, l-lysine and l-arginine doses should be separated from each other by at least one hour).

The risk to people with Low Blood Pressure.
People with low blood pressure should try arginine cautiously as supplemental arginine is thought to modulate blood pressure.

The risks of many heart and cholesterol medications combined with L-arginine .
People taking heart/cholesterol medications should consult with their health care provider prior to use of arginine containing products.

The risks to people with Asthma.
People with asthma can try proargi-9 cautiously as it is not known to agitate this condition.

Why do you have to use the dyes in the product?
There are no dyes in Proargi-9

Sucralose and Proargi-9

  • I understand that Stevia is not for everyone, but instead of sucralose isn’t there something else that can be used to sweeten that does not have all of the negative press?
  • I know it is the last ingredient, but how much sucrolose is in each serving?

Sucralose is a safe non-caloric sweetener. We formulated the mixed berry flavor of proargi-9 for people who do not care for the sucralose sweetener.

Do you only recommend that Type 2 diabetics use it? It looks risky for Type 1’s, do you agree?

Diabetics can take proargi-9 if they first check with their health care practitioner. They need to account for the calories in their diet and should discuss the use of arginine with their doctor prior to use.

If you have other questions or concerns about taking ProArgi9 that has not been addressed here, please don’t hesitate to post a question below and I’ll forward it to Synergy experts.
