Im using Different Suppliments can they be harmful some how?
Dec 2, 2008

Im using Muscletec Creakic creatine pills, BSN No-Xplode, L-Arginine, Calcium Pyruvate and Cod Liver Oil. Is the combination of these fine. im not having problems of any sort latly or past. And i use them at a single time, is that fine. plz im looking forward to ur best suggestion. Thank You

Response from Mr. Vergel

We have no data on the use of all of them in combination. We have data on creatine and HIV and found no interactions. We also have data on Omega 3 oils and found no interaction with Kaletra. I would not think that arginine has an effect on HIV medication blood levels, but arginine concerns me since it can feed herpes viruses. Herpes has been shown to be a cofactor in increasing HIV viral replication.

The Xplode supplements can increase blood pressure, so be careful

I would only take Creatine supplements and stop all others if I was you. Cod liver oil has some limited data on neuropathy but I see no point on taking it for bodybuilding.
