  • Essential Amino Acid Support.

    Lysine is an essential amino acid necessary for growth and to help maintain nitrogen balance in the body. It may help promote proper nitrogen balance in the body and prevent glycation‚ the combining of a sugar and protein molecule accelerated by elevated levels of sugar in the blood.

    Lysine has many functions in the body because it is incorporated into many proteins‚ which are used for a variety of purposes.

    Most people consume adequate amounts of lysine. However‚ vegans whose diets contain large amounts of grains and only minimal amounts of beans could become lysine deficient. Athletes involved in frequent vigorous exercise have an increased need for essential amino acids‚ although most diets meet these increased needs. The essential amino acid requirements of burn patients may exceed the amount of lysine in the diet.

    Lysine supplementation has been shown to increase the absorption and retention of calcium. Some researchers believe that the disturbed balance of arginine and lysine may play a role in viral problems.

    Lysine works with other essential amino acids to maintain growth‚ lean body mass and the body’s store of nitrogen. In addition‚ dietary supplementation with the essential amino acid L-lysine has been shown to reduce anxiety in humans with low dietary intake of L-lysine. L-lysine‚ together with arginine‚ has been documented to normalize hormonal stress responses in humans with high trait anxiety.

    For cold sores

    I have been taking two capsules in the a.m. on an empty stomach for two years to prevent cold sores. It works! I have shingles, the tingling of nerves around my bra line and sometimes on my face. This product seems to quiet those never endings.


    Pros

      The pro is that this product is an easy way to prevent and control both maladies.

    Cons

      Nothing!

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Great for cold sore prevention

    I started taking this product twice a day about a year ago after suffering frequent cold sore outbreaks (due to increased stress). I did notice a difference and have only had about two in the past year which is a dramatic improved compared to one every couple of months before I started taking it.


    Pros

      inexpensive

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Better gum health

    I have been using L-Lysine for several months now on a daily basis and have noticed a clear improvement in my mouth. A problematic pocket that had "weeped" for years no longer does so. Very pleased with L-Lysine.


    Pros

      Very effective. Easy to swallow.

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Product really works!

    I always take L-Lysine once a day for the prevention of cold sores (though I know there are several other benefits). At the onset of a cold sore I take 2 capsules per day and that usually takes care of it! Another bonus is how reasonably priced these are - and without having to compromise on the quality.


    Pros

      Really works!

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Life Extension L-Lysine

    Ive taken L-Lysine in one form or another for many years originally to keep from getting fever blisters on my lips. I have changed over to the Life Extension brand and feel it is a superior quality than Ive taken in the past. I never get the fever blisters I did years ago.


    Pros

      Quality of Life Extension brand

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.
