Product Information

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. The body uses amino acids to build proteins that are essential for the maintenance of muscle mass and normal bones.

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.
Daily Intake
Take 1 to 2 tablets daily. Do not exceed recommended daily dose. Use only water or fruit juice to swallow tablets. Not milk or any other protein drink. An Amino Acid is most effective when taken half an hour before any meal or at bedtime.

Not many people know this but it is a very dependable remedy for keeping shingles at bay and has worked very effectively for me. I have had shingles 3 times and do not want it again and it has been years since so will continue to use this remedy and highly recommend it.

"Why Change An Already Amazing Producy? Terrible Upgrade."
By Reus , 18 Jun 2021
As much as I love natures best's products, this one has been a total disappointment. The previous 500mg pot was absolutely incredible and one which I recommended to my friends and family who also found it beneficial. This new 1000mg pot does NOT have the same beneficial effect due to them adding the 'dicalcium phosphate' in this which is a known inhibitor of absorption, and personally clogs up my throat because of this ingridient.

I wish NB would get back the old 500mg which worked like a charm, or AT LEAST please have the option of purchasing that one (without the dicalcium phosphate in it) alongside the upgraded 1000mg pot. I'm gutted that NB discarded my favourite product and am now having to purchase a 'cleaner' lysine from another supplier instead.

I''m an holistic therapist and firmly believe if everyone took Lysine and vitamin C every day vascular surgery would be reduced and people would live better lives.
