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.
