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.

    Ditched the antibiotics and creams. I’ve have been using this product for years. Very effective in treating cold sores. Best to use regularly

  2. Marla

    The product works wonders to prevent the breakout of fever blisters because of the 1000mg dose. Especially in summer. I’ve use this for over 2years now and rarely get it anymore

  3. Sharique

    This product has proven very good and useful especially for the symptoms of Shingles. My wife suffered with shingles for a while, and ever since she started on the Lysine, it has alleviated the symptoms fast. Highly recommended.
