KNOW YOUR AMINO-ACID
How Does L-Lysine Work?
L-Lysine is an essential amino acid that cannot be synthesized in the body and must be obtained through diet. It is a L-alpha-amino acid; the L-isomer of lysine. Meaning that L-Lysine is the biologically active form of Lysine. > NCI Thesaurus (NCIt)
How L-Lysine Works
L-Lysine is one of nine essential amino acids in humans required for growth and tissue repair. Lysine is supplied by many foods, especially red meats, fish, and dairy products. L-Lysine seems to be active against herpes simplex viruses and may aid in the production of antibodies.
The mechanism underlying this effect is based on the viral need for amino acid Arginine. L-Lysine competes with arginine for absorption and entry into cells.
Lysine may help to slow down or prevent the growth of the Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 (HSV-1), which is responsible for causing Cold Sores / Fever Blisters. HSV-1 requires Arginine, which is another Amino Acid, to grow and replicate. Lysine helps prevent the body from absorbing Arginine, making it difficult for HSV-1 to grow and replicate.
Take one tablet, three times a day for therapeutic use or one tablet daily for prophylactic use (as a preventative), or as directed by your Health Professional.
