Lysine Tablets 500mg

Pure free form for easy absorption

Lysine is termed an essential amino acid as it is one of the eight amino acids that our bodies can not make and so we are completely reliant on our diets to provide lysine. We require 2-3 g a day of lysine and it is most abundant in animal based foodstuffs such as meat. There is very little lysine in most vegetables and even vegetable proteins are not particularly high in lysine, and so some experts believe that vegetarian and vegan diets may provide rather low levels of lysine.

Huge quantities of lysine are used in agriculture as it is the only amino acid that is routinely added to animal feeds. However we use a grade called USP meaning its quality and purity makes it suitable for clinical nutrition products.Very cheap Lysine products may be based on the lower grade, less purified animal feed grade.

Reviews and Feedback

If You Are Suffering With Cold Sores Lysine Is Definitely Worth Trying.

By Anonymous - 25th August 2016

Why do you use this product Lysine 500mg ?

I was having repeated cold sore outbreaks for 3 years, approx once a month . Also during the period of repeated outbreaks the cold sores were always inside my nose and very painful. Even when I didn't have cold sores the inside of my nose felt sensitive and sore most of the time. Within 3 weeks of taking Lysine my sore and sensitive nose cleared up. During the next 6 months I had one outbreak of cold sores and it was less of a problem and cleared up quicker. I'd highly recommended Lysine if you are suffering

Lysine

By Marion Baikie - 29th April 2016

Why do you use this product Lysine 500mg ?

I read an article in a national newspaper a few years ago which claimed that this product helped to prevent cold sores. As a fairly regular sufferer of cold sores I started taking them. I have found that they certainly do help prevent cold sores. The very occasional one or two that I've had in the past few years has been of much shorter duration and much less painful. I will continue to take 1 a day of this product as am very satisfied with the outcome.

Cold Sore Preventative

I am taking these to prevent the dreaded scourge of facial herpes. Is there anything more unsettling than when your get a big one arrive on your lips or nose? followed then 10 days or more of weeping scabby misery. Natures Best has great quality supplements that are well priced. This is the first time i have used this brand but so far so good and the feedback is highly encouraging.

Benefits Of Lysine

By Alan - 16th February 2016

I use Lysine on a daily basis to help against cold sores which I used to be prone to on a regular basis and it definitely helps. I do not have them as often as I used to and when I do get them they are never as bad as they used to be. On an outbreak I increase my intake and this definitely helps in my view to help the healing process. A product I would not be without.

Highly Efficacious

By Sue Macgregor - 19th November 2015

Why do you use this product Lysine 500mg ?

I have used L-lysine for years to treat and prevent cold sores. Prevent: 1.5 caps per day 1 am and half pm. To treat, then take on an empty stomach: 1000mg 5 times per day for at least 3 days or until you can see that they are definitely going. I've found it's better not to stop too early because they can recurr very easily. Works every time and no need for all those topical creams!

Upper Respiratory Problems In My Cat

By Lynn Jones - 7th July 2015

Why do you use this product Lysine 500mg ?

I personally do not take this supplement but buy it for my fourteen year old cat who has respiratory disease. He has micro condrya that live in his nose and sinuses. The lysine helps with the symptoms and also makes the antibiotics more effective when he has a bad bout. He is a stone in weight and I give him two tablets per day crushed and mixed into his food. I give him this supplement as processed cat food has little lysine in it which is present in raw meat.

Why do you use this product Lysine 500mg ?

We are eating less meat as a family as we are unhappy about the way that animals are looked after nowadays so we only buy from local farm shops (which is expensive but better tasting). So to keep topped up with this protein sourced amino acid we take the tablets.

Lysine

By Geoff Smalley - 18th November 2014

Why do you use this product Lysine 500mg ?

For severe, often daily, vertigo attacks caused by Menieres Disease - the herpes virus is thought to be implicated in Menieres.
After a short curse of a*yc**vir, a prescription anti-herpetiv, prescribed by a doctor, I started on lysine on 9/08/14, 2 x 500mg 3 times a day at least 30 mins before food. My last attack occurred on 14/8 over 3 months ago and the associated hearing loss has also improved.
I will shortly start to reduce the dosage as recommended by John of Ohio.

Cold Sores Be Gone?

By Andrew Shaw - 28th November 2013

After researching cold sore cures (which I know are plentiful and don't work because it's a life long virus) I found lots of good information about L-Lysine. Hopefully it will limit attacks and make them less severe. I've just started taking two tablets in the morning and I'm hoping they will do the trick. I am just recovering from a large outbreak of sores possibly due to the recent change to cold weather. I bought enough to last six months which should be a fair trial. If they work then I will definitely continue. I'll re-post with an update.

Heart Co-Helper

By Mrs F - 28th November 2013

Why do you use this product Lysine 500mg ?

My husband suffered a heart attack, and rather than spend the rest of his life on a cocktail of potentially toxic drugs, opted to take L-Lysine together with high doses of Vitamin C. There is strong evidence (ignored by mainstream medicine) that this treatment can be enormously beneficial. To date, nearly three years after his attack, he's had no further heart problems.

Amino Acids And Hair Loss

By Anonymous - 30th October 2013

Reaching 63 years old, I noticed a thinning patch in the hair at my crown. Considering my age and not being totally vain I was not inclined or even tempted to try restorative preparations or transplants to help regain the luxurious covering of my more youthful days. I far preferred the option of addressing the problem by more natural means and, having done some research into the matter of reducing or halting hair loss through the regular use of supplements (in this case iron and amino acids) I decided to try this particular product in conjunction with a course of iron tablets and vitamin C. As to the programme's efficacy (shhhhh!!) all I will say is that in the 12 months since I started the course the thin patch hasn't grown any bigger yet and what hair there still is looks healthier and thicker. I'm reluctant to state, categorically, that this combination of supplements solves, or at least reduces, the problem of hair loss but I can say that I am very happy with my purchases.

Lysine Wards Off And Deals With Cold Sores Fast.

My son has suffered from cold sores since he was about 3 years old. Living in a hot climate doesn't help as the sun brings them out. Lysine really helps. He has fewer outbreaks and when he does get a cold sore the duration is less. I always have a stock of Lysine tablets in the house nowadays.

The Only Cure For Cold Sores I Have Found

By DrLex - 7th July 2013

Straight and simple: I take one of these (500gr pure Lysine) every morning, every day, before anything else, and I have seen maybe 1-2 cold sore outbreaks a year, relatively mild, whereas before I would get a new one every month, if lucky (more frequently, if not, and pretty rabid). I have been doing this for about 5 years now, and I have not seen any side effects or diminution of the Lysine's action. This isn't a quick fix, it takes several weeks to kick when you first start taking it, probably a couple of months or more, but the more you persist it, the more you will notice the difference.

Why do you use this product Lysine 500mg ?
My husband suffered from recurrent bouts of vestibular neuronitis - inflammation of the balance nerve causing severe dizziness. I had read about Lysine and its effectiveness with preventing cold sore flare-ups and got him to try it because the herpes (cold sore) virus is implicated in some vestibular problems. Anyway, it seems to be working (no attacks for over two years), so he's still taking the tablets!
