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.

  • Still Working

    star

    For the first time in the few years that I have been using the Nutra-Life Cold Sore Formula I have had two lots of cold sores break out on my lips. Bit of a shock as I had come to rely on the product as keeping the virus at bay. However, I did note that the duration of the sores and the outbreak was limited and as I had been under a considerable amount of stress I felt that things could have been a lot worse.. I will definitely carry on with my regime of one tablet a day and try to stay calm....

  • I love that this product is in capsule form

    star

    I have used Lysine for several years to help combat cold sores and was particularly happy to discover this brand as it is in a capsule form and easy to swallow, unlike other tablet forms. The frequency of my getting cold sores seems to have lesssened since using Lysine and the discomfort is much less, especially if I start taking it as soon as I get the first indicating tingle on my lip. From reading other peoples reviews I have recently continued with daily use after my last cold sore in the hope of keeping them at bay. I am feeling a bit tired and stressed right now and that is usually the ideal time to develop a cold sore, so fingers crossed I may now be able to keep them away. Lysine is certainly a good friend to anyone who suffers from cold sores.

  • Huge tablets

    star

    I am sure these would have been fantastic - Lysine is. But the tablets are huge and very hard.....in fact I hated taking them so much (tried three times) I binned the full container. I will be looking for Lysine again but need something more palatable and easy to swallow than this brand. Hugely disappointed.
