L-Arginine and lubricants

I like to use Liquid Silk lube, and I was about to order a bottle. I came here to edenfantasys to check the price compared to other places. I noticed in the product details section under performance it says "saftey features: L-Arginine free"

I'm just wondering if that is a typo/mistake??? I don't see how that could be considered a safety feature? I was unaware that any lubes had L-Arginine in them, but I don't see how that could be a bad thing? L-Arginine is an amino acid produced in the human body and is benneficial if not vital to us, and it is also found in numerous plant/animal food sources. So again I ask, how could it be a safety feature for liquid silk to be L-Arginine free?

Thank you for bringing up that question I really don't know about that. Hopefully someone that knows more can answer you better. The only information I just found out about it says:

"And just one last thing about L-Arginine. I have not researched this, but on some other reviews and forums, I have that in people who currently have genital herpes, L-Arginine can increase the chance of an outbreak. If there is more Arginine in the body than Lysine (which I have used to threat oral herpes or fever blisters) then it can trigger an outbreak. So just because of that, I would not recommend this lube or other products with L-Arginine to anyone who has been diagnosed with genital herpes, but please consult your doctor before hand."

Now I don't know how true is that, or if there is something else to it.

I found that info on here: link

It's true; arginine can cause an outbreak of herpes if you have it. As can the arginine in nuts, seeds, and chocolate. I personally need arginine in my products but it's a safety feature for those who have Herpes.

Interesting find on the lube. I actually TAKE an L-Arginine tablet frequently, if not daily. I take it because it seems to help if you are starting to have ED problems. It helps with the creation/absorbsion of Nitric
oxide, which is a chemical that helps a man get and keep an erection, among other things. I am no doctor or chemist, but this is what I have read, and it seems to work.

I've found that some companies and sites jump on the "insert additive here"-free bandwagon to try to make a product seem safer than others. MOST lubes do not contain arginines - those that do are usually warming or tingling, but arginines are similar to glycerines in the effects they create when contained in lubricant form.

Think of it like the whole "phthalates-free" boast. There are very few toys made anymore that contain phthalates, and nearly all of those are the cheap Chinese crap toy companies, NOT the major manufacturers. It's just another way to say "my product is better than theirs, so buy it!"
