I've been using Solgar L-Lysine for months . It's especially helpful to help detox associated with antibacterial and antiviral. Also, it's important for immune system .these are easy to swallow capsules. I take 2 capsule twice a day, that's why I bought this big size bottle. Solgar always has good quality products with clean ingredients. Also good as support because gives me energy.
Solgar L-Lysine come in a quality dark, brown, glass jar. L-lysine benefits cold sores I get from some foods I enjoy like p-nut butter, corn on the cob, too many corn chips and salsa. The capsules are an easy to swallow size. I take l-lysine daily in the morning and never have any after effects, like upset stomach. As always, iHerb ships in a sturdy package protecting the glass bottle, so no worry about the shipment, ever.
Does what it's supped to do.
L-Lysine is very important as a supplement, to balance your Lysine consumption from various food sources.
Not many people know that, but most foods, in all food groups. contain certain amounts of L-Lysine and also Arginine.
Some foods contain more Lysine than Arginine (like dairy products), some are balanced, and some contain way more Arginine than Lysine (like red meat, Nuts, Lentils).
Normally, most people don't need to take Lysine supplementation.
However - Those suffering from bouts of H-Zoster (of which -especially those with an impaired immune-system and / or the elderly) may benefit greatly from L-Lysine supplementation, especially during active flare-ups of H zoster, and as a preventative measure against them.
It depends on your diet: As the H Z vir_us thrives on (or, rather, 'finds it easier to harm the body') an Arginine-rich diet (that is - More Arginine than Lysine per food potion - Almost regardless of the actual quantities. I write Almost, as if the quantities are very low, negligible, than it's immaterial. But, for example, if you suffer from aforementioned condition
& you've just ate a can of Tuna, Steak or a bowl of lentil-soup - you've also just consumed a great quantity of Arginine, and although said foods contain a fair share of Lysine - They do contain way more Arginine, thus creating an imbalance, that, might trigger (as it's the Ratio that counts) the dormant vir_us to flare up [that vir_us never disappears, once you've had it, but rather remains dormant in your nervous system.
Look it up. There are also Arginine Vs Lysine tables available online) ]
So - just take a few capsules as a counter-measure, just before, or, in case you forgot - straight after said meal -and you'd be better of, as you'll have enough Lysine to counter the effects of the Arginine in those foods you've just consumed.
Great quality product, Best Value for money (with this quantity, 250) that I've encountered.
Using for first time. Good for inflammation. If I feel that I will get herpes on my lips I'm taking more pills. I open pill and I directly put powder on herpes. It helps my. I have herpes shorter time.
