Could U Take Zinc And L Lysine Together

Too much L Lysine and Zinc

Exceeding 150 mg per day of zinc could lower your good cholesterol, lower your copper levels, cause anemia and weaken your immune system. The national institute for health recommends not exceeding 40 mg per day. I would say that is very conservative. For your own peace of mind, I would recommend that you stop taking the 50 mg zinc tablet. The 500 mg of Lysine is completely safe and very effective. It would be almost impossible to overdose on Lysine. It is an amino acid that our body cannot produce on its own, but that is vital to disease prevention. I would recommend adding at least 1000mg per day of vitamin C also. It is a water soluble vitamin and I personally take over 5,000 mg per day every day. The vitamin C foundation recommends 3,000 mg per day. Lysine and vitamin C are vital to disease prevention and the vast majority of people are ignorant to that idea. Just think of how many people die every year from prescription drug interactions and side affects. We never here of people dying from vitamins do we? I never hear of any. Check out these links and think outside the box. Good luck!

Too much Vitamin C Lysine or Zinc

Vitamin C is water soluble and any excess is eliminated automatically every day. Three grams a day is not a problem (and is in fact the amount recommended by the Vitamin C Foundation) but if you take much greater amounts you could end up with kidney stones. More than one gram in one dose is not recommended. If you take say three grams in a day make sure that it is three times one gram.

Lysine is quite safe and three grams a day is not a problem. Even greater amounts are unlikely to give you any problems. Perhaps amounts greater than three grams a day is overdoing it a bit.

Zinc is very dangerous and toxic if you take 80 mg a day or more. 25 or even 50 mg a day is OK. As zinc and copper interact a large intake of zinc could lead to a deficiency in copper because the zinc is likely to be absorbed preferentially at the expense of the copper. If you take say 50 mg of zinc a day then you may require a copper supplement as well.

Does anyone know what l lysine is good for

L-lysine is protein amino acid. It is classified as an essential amino acid for humans. Lysine may reduce the recurrence rate of herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections and/or reduce their severity in some, though research results have been mixed with respect to this putative benefit. Very preliminary research indicates a possible role for lysine in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. Niacin, Lecithin, zinc and magnesium are vitamins you can try for tinnitus. As far as herbs try Gingko Biloba.

L Lysine L Arginine cancel each other out

I did a bit of research earlier, It seems consuming around 2000mg of L-Lysine and 2000mg of L-Arginine a day increases HGH levels.

"When taken in daily doses of at least 1 g each, L-arginine and L-lysine support the production of growth hormone, a benefit that is useful for bodybuilders and other athletes."

"Other researchers drew the same conclusion in a study of 16 young men during an acute episode of resistive weight lifting. After 3 grams of oral arginine and lysine, the subjects experienced a peak GH response to exercise approximately 15% lower than during exercise without supplementation."

"Studies indicate, however, that these two amino acids can work together to instigate the release of growth hormone. In 15 healthy male subjects aged 15 to 20 years old, 1200 milligrams of arginine pyroglutamate combined with L-lysine hydrochloride significantly elevated biologically active growth hormone from two to eight times the baseline value at 30 to 120 minutes after consuming the amino acids."

I will certainly be buying myself some L-Arginine and L-Lysine tomorrow! I'm only 18 and 6'0" myself, i want to be another couple of inches taller so maybe this might help. :)

What supplements actually work to increase semen volume

Check out my hubby's database; it could help you out!


A lot of guys would love it if they could make like one of the characters in Scary Movie and ejaculate so much that they plaster their girlfriends against the ceiling. And although that won't likely be happening anytime soon, it's believed that wheat germ increases seminal output. Bon appétit.
(Butter's note: I only tried it once and it thickened my load like I've rarely seen before. Eat with oatmeal for better results)

Amino acids, if taken regularly, are generally believed to increase ejaculate fluid. On the other hand, zinc seems to improve both the amount of sperm produced as well as the sperm's ability to move spontaneously and independently. Together with amino acids, this will increase normal sperm count and volume significantly.
Amino acids are believed to increase ejaculate fluid (not the amount of actual sperm necessarily) if taken regularly. Some amino acids include:

Studies show sperm and semen volume doubles, fertility improves (even among men with low sperm counts or poor sperm motility), and sperm health and activity increase with supplementation. Arginine is found in high concentrations in nuts and seeds like peanuts and almonds. It can also be found in chocolate and raisins. Some Natural Sources: Nuts, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, chocolate, popcorn, raisins, brown rice, carob, gelatin desserts, oatmeal, whole wheat bread, and protein rich foods.

Researchers find that this amino acids plus zinc increases sperm produced, stimulates testosterone production, and improves semen quality.

Sometimes called "horny goat weed," this botanical boosts libido and testosterone levels for greater sperm production for a strong ejaculation.

Has been shown to increase number of sperm and sperm motility by 80% to 200% by aiding testosterone synthesis.

This amino acid is found in high concentrations in healthy sperm. Proven to significantly increase the percentage of highly motile sperm.

Brazilian herb that strengthens the libido, and nourishes the entire male reproductive system.

Supports prostate health and hormonal production. While they may not readily increase sperm volume, they do enhance prostate health and testosterone production.

Legendary South American botanical proven to promote libido, potency and energy.

(Butter's note: Lecithin added daily increases amount, not thickness)

Zinc has been shown to improve both the amount of sperm you produce and the sperm's ability to move spontaneously and independently. Coupled with amino acids (see above), this will increase sperm volume significantly.
(Butter's note: Not as miraculous as they make it sound, but regular zinc intake (50mgs a day) does increase quantity somewhat.)

Whatever a pill company's claims are, you can probably do just as well with zinc and lecithin supplements. (Use zinc supplements in moderation; too much zinc intake can be dangerous.) For some guys, these nutrients do have a noticeable effect on ejaculation volume, and they're a lot cheaper and easier to get. In general, stay away from mail-order pills sold by less-than-reputable companies; you really don't know what's in them, and their claims are almost always untrue or at least greatly exaggerated.

PC Exercises:
While Kegel exercises can help you last longer, they can also aid in increasing sperm volume. There are a host of exercises you can do to keep your penis in great shape and shoot like a champion.
(Butter's note: PC muscle exercises have proven to help reduce prostate troubles in advancing age, but I have yet to see improvements in my ejaculate's volume through this method)

Frequency of sexual activity also contributes to volume -- although only to a certain degree. If you abstain for a day or two, you'll certainly produce more sperm than you would ejaculating every few hours. But any longer than this one- to two-day timeframe, and you won't see much of a difference, as semen reservoirs will have stopped building up a supply.
(Butter's note: True, the body will evacuate excess semen through urine & etc. so abstinence over 3 or 4 days will not continue increase of quantity. Usually, 2 or 3 days should be enough to reach maximum potential... but there are exceptions!)

And for those of you who wrote in asking if semen is a good source of protein, its protein content is roughly equivalent to that found in the egg white of a large egg. So you're probably best off sticking with the eggs.

Consistency of semen isn't very consistent; you've probably noticed that the thickness of your ejaculate can vary from day to day. This is because the quality of the fluid is very susceptible to a number of factors. Diet, exercise and frequency of sex can all dictate how thick or watery your emissions are, as can the tightness of the clothes that you wear (tight clothing will increase body temperature and can thus impact sperm motility.

While there is a lack of supporting scientific evidence, a number of ingredients are said to help thicken up semen. Because of their protein content, egg whites and gelatin are often recommended. Wheat germ, omega-3 oils, selenium, and zinc are all also believed to improve consistency.
(Butter's note: Tomato-based products, soy-based products, oatmeal, and celery have also proven to help thicken the load, at least in my case!)

Vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, and essential fatty acids are found in the prostate in high levels, and are all necessary to produce semen. Low zinc levels have been connected to decreased production of seminal fluids, as well as lower testosterone levels. A healthy balance of nutrients is important for maintaining vascular health as well, which improves your ability to achieve and maintain erections. There isn't a need to go popping extra vitamins if you are already eating a diet rich in nutrients, particulary from fruits and vegetables. Essential fatty acids are found in certain kinds of fish (like salmon) and nuts.

Celery is one of food products known to have great properties for sexual stimulation. It contains androsterone, an odor free hormone which is very inviting for women. Raw celery is the best way to increase that desire.
Oysters are rich in zinc and are know to increase sperm and testosterone production. It contains dopamine which increases the sexual desire.
Bananas, Avocado and Almond or other nuts are some of the other food products which help in this matter.

10 Ways you can increase Your sperm count:
1. Have sex & masturbate less often - the more times you ejaculate, the less dense your semen will be. Maintain a gap of 3 days between two consecutive ejaculations.
2. Refrain from habits like smoking, alcohol consumption etc. - Alcohol affects your liver function, which, in turn, causes a dramatic rise in estrogen levels. Even two drinks a day will have long-term effects on sperm production
3. Exercise regularly.Exercising your PC muscle can help you shoot further than ever before.Read How to Exercise your PC muscles at
4. Eat Nutritious Food - Diet that's low in fat, and high in protein, vegetables, and whole grains is good for your health and for your sperm. Avoid bitter, astringent and spicy foods.Reduce caffeine intake
5. Avoid heating of testicles - Wear loose, cotton boxer shorts, Avoid hot baths and saunas
6. Lose any excess weight, which tends to cause testosterone/oestrogen imbalances.
7. Reduce stress levels by learning relaxation techniques - Keep your mind and body healthy by regular practice of YOGA and MEDITATION.
8. Massage body with herbal oil, which improves blood circulation. Try Penis Massage Oil available at
9. Try supplements - Certain natural supplements promise to increase sperm production.
10. Make love in the early morning or afternoon. Sperm levels are often highest in the mornings.

L lysine L Arginine

the "L" in front of the amino acid stands for levorotary. it basically just stands for the direction the amino acids are polarized in the body and how effective they can be used by the body. Levoratary amino acids are a better choice to go with because the body accepts them better than without the "L". if you are taking two amino acids that both have the same pull, they will work well together as opposed to taking 2 and having them used differently in the body. they are both great amino acids to have for your gains. you probably wont feel like they are working, like you wont get a rush or anything like from NO XPlode, but the effects happen non-the-less

Did I overdose on zinc will I die please help

It is very hard to overdose on zinc from food. To overdose on zinc via oysters you would probably need to eat a few hundred in one sitting.

The amount of zinc that you actually absorb from a 25 mg tablet is probably something like about 30 % which is about 7.5 gm.

Does Zinc or Vitamin C help you recover from Adderall

Arginine and Lysine increase height

Providing you get plenty of protein (meat), calcium (milk) and zinc (red meat, oysters, mussels and nuts) you will grow exactly the same amount with or without amino acids such as arginine and lysine and others.

You can find further information in a web search for "amino acids to grow taller".
