Lysine Info

Lysine is one of the essential amino acids we need to build protein for growth and to help maintain the body’s nitrogen balance. It also has important roles in cholesterol management, calcium absorption and collagen formation.

Lysine Benefits

Lysine is a specific treatment for cold sores caused by the herpes simplex virus. By helping suppress the virus, lysine can reduce frequency, duration and severity of outbreaks. Oral and genital herpes and shingles are all forms of herpes virus that benefit from lysine treatment.

Lysine is also valuable in maintaining healthy bones when supplemented in both prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.

Lysine metabolism requires several other specific nutrients for proper absorption in the body.

Lysine Side Effects

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, medical advice is recommended before taking lysine products. Do not take lysine with milk or other dairy products. High doses of lysine can increase the toxic effect of some antibiotic drugs, and very high doses can cause abdominal pain. Caution and medical advice is recommended if taking Warfarin or other prescribed medication.

Product Reviews

  • Awesome Product

    I have found this product to work extremely well. I would always get a nasty cold sore whenever I was run down or stressed out. I had tried other products with mixed results, but since taking one of these tablets each morning, I haven't had a cold sore for a very long time. Great it has added vitamin C & zinc too. So thrilled with how well it works. Totally recommend!

  • Great product

    I normally buy the Nutralife brand, but this one was cheaper on special, so bought Go Healthy instead. Both are excellent, especially when I get cravings for chocolate during certain times, the lysine balances the arginine in the chocolate to prevent herpes virus/cold sore outbreaks.

  • You need this if you get cold sores

    I have terrible problems with cold sores, as soon as one heals I have a new one. Taking this is the only thing that leaves me cold sore free. I love it. Cold sores are sore and make me feel miserable so I am so glad this can keep them away.
