L-Lysine is an essential amino acid. L-lysine helps to reduce the recurrence, severity and healing time of cold sores.
Lysine is an essential amino acid and since it is naturally abundant in meat, those most likely to suffer from deficiency are vegetarians and individuals who consume a diet high in grain-based baked goods.
One of the most common uses for lysine is for preventing cold sores caused by the Herpes Simplex virus. Lysine is effective at preventing infection by the virus, reducing the risk of developing cold sores and speeding up the recovery after a cold sore develops. Lysine inhibits replication of the herpes virus that causes the visible outbreaks and pain, itching and sores around the lips. Lysine interferes with the absorption of the amino acid arginine, which the herpes virus uses to replicate. Without arginine, the virus cannot be fully functional which allows the body to heal quicker and reduce the possibility of recurrence.
Lysine also supports bodybuilding and muscle growth and helps maintain carnitine levels, an important factor in energy and aging. Lysine supports bone health by ensuring the proper absorption of calcium and helping to form collagen that makes up bone cartilage and connective tissues. Finally, supplementation with lysine has been shown to reduce mood imbalances and even cortisol levels in those who consume low amounts of lysine.
