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.
Food supplements should not replace a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.

I get herpes simplex from time to time which I think were stress-related. But taking L-Lysine has stopped them appearing. It really works.

"Has so far put a stop to recurrent cold sored"

Purchased these as I''ve been plagued intermittently with cold sores since childhood, however for the last 4 months I have suffered with weekly outbreaks as soon as the previous one had almost healed. (This seems to have coincided with me moving to a plant based diet at the end of last year). After hours of research I decided to purchase these tablets, which I''ve been taking for nearly 6 weeks now and this is my second consecutive week without a cold sore. I did increase the dosage that is recommended (after reading various different articles on dosages) and this seems to have made the difference. Obviously I wouldn''t recommend doing this without thorough research. I did go and see my GP a couple of weeks ago when my last one popped up and she prescribed a 5 day course of aciclovir medication. I haven''t needed to use those so far and as I have not had an outbreak since, I will continue to use the Lysine tablets to see if they are able to keep me cold sore free.
