L-Lysine has a range of different health benefits and functions within the body. It can be used to prevent and reduce the duration of cold sores. It does this by blocking arginine, which is the amino acid used by the herpes simplex virus to help it replicate and thrive in the body and cause cold sores. Lysine may help to reduce stress and anxiety, as it appears to lower levels of the stress hormone, cortisol. It is also important for the formation of collagen, which is needed for healthy skin, cartilage, bones and wound healing. L-lysine may also support healthy bones and teeth by helping to increase the absorption of calcium.
Suggested use is 2 capsules once daily.
