Description

Lamberts® L-Lysine 1000mg provides a grade of lysine called USP which is the quality used in clinical nutrition products.

Lysine is an essential amino acid and is therefore one of the eight amino acids that our bodies cannot make, so we are completely reliant on our diets to provide sufficient lysine. It is used by the body in a number of ways and, particularly in the formation of collagen, the most abundant protein in the body.

We require 2-3g a day of lysine and it is most abundant in animal based foodstuffs such as meat. Vegetables and vegetable proteins are not particularly high in lysine, and so some experts believe that vegetarian and vegan diets may provide rather low levels of lysine.

Lysine supplements may help in the prevention and treatment of cold sores. Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), which can hide in your spine. In times of stress or if your immune system is weakened, HSV-1 can trigger the development of a cold sore. According to some research, lysine supplements may help prevent HSV-1 from replicating and reduce the duration of a cold sore. It is thought that lysine blocks another amino acid called arginine, which viruses need in order to multiply.
