Lysine is one of eight essential amino acids that must be obtained from the diet to meet the body's requirements for protein.
While red and white meat, fish, milk and dairy products would normally supply enough to meet our needs, vegans, vegetarians and those on low fat diets may not get enough. This is especially so if bread, pasta and rice are preferred in their refined, white form rather than as whole grains.
Solgar L-Lysine 1000mg is great for…
There's nothing the herpes simplex (cold sore) virus loves more than the amino acid arginine. To the rescue, lysine. This interferes with the absorption of arginine to prevent the virus feeding on its favourite food. By doing so, it stops the virus's growth dead in its tracks.
Taken regularly it can prevent an outbreak occurring in the first place. Taken at the first sign of symptoms, it can shorten the episode of blisters around the mouth or genitals to just a few days, or may even prevent them altogether.
Lysine helps absorb calcium and transport it to the bones to help keep them strong. It's also needed to make collagen, the body's main structural protein. This forms the scaffolding for healthy skin, lips, bones and connective tissues. Lysine also helps maintain good immunity and keeps the heart strong.
For Adults, take 1 tablet each day, preferably in between meals with lots of water or juice
Q: What dose will prevent cold sores?
A: One a day is recommended for ongoing protection, but if symptoms kick off then 2 or 3 can be taken until symptoms subside.
Q: I'm a post-menopausal woman. I already take calcium to protect against brittle and fragile bones, would lysine also help?
A: Protection against bone loss involves much more than calcium. Many other minerals as well as vitamins and fats have important roles. To be effective, comprehensive nutritional support is required. This can include lysine.
Q: Can lysine protect against the flu?
A: On its own no. But it can improve immune support in viruses unrelated to herpes simplex when combined with arginine
