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

  • Use for the control of cold sores

    star

    I am in unfortunate in suffering cold sores which can develop at anytime but particularly when exposed to sun and I spend a lot of time outside. I have found that Lysine helps to control the development of cold sores when taken regularly. The Nutra Life pills are large but the have a large dose which I think improves effectiveness. If you experience cold sore which are the result of a recurring virus I suggest you try these.

  • Tablets very big & difficlt to swallow

    star

    Re the tablet size, I cut them in half but they were still uncomfortable to swallow, especially now they had sharp edges, so I left them to soak in water & after they had dissolved I was able to drink the 'solution'. I haven't been taking them regularly enough to know if they prevent my cold sore from returning.

  • Awesome Product

    star

    This product is amazing!!! I used to get cold sores all the time, at least one a month for the past 30 years. They were really sore, unsightly and an embarrassment, and would usually last 7-10 days from onset to fully healed. A friend told me about Lysine and although I was a bit skeptical - after spending hundreds of dollars over the years on other cold sore creams and patches that didn't really work - I was desperate to find a solution. I read the reviews on the products you sell and decided to buy "Go Healthy Go Lysine 1000 mg" . I'm so glad that I did!
    I take one capsule every single day as a preventative, and if I do start to feel a tingle then I take 2 capsules twice a day for five days (i.e. 4 capsules per day - my pharmacist said this was fine to do). Since beginning to take this product about a year ago I have had NO cold sores develop and the 5-6 times that I felt the tingle I have stopped it in its tracks with the additional capsules. I recommend this product to everyone! It's such a great price on HealthPost and I usually buy in bulk when it's on special. I can't recommend this product highly enough, you have to try it. I'm thrilled!!!
