Protein isn’t just something you find in foods like steak and peanut butter. Your body makes its own proteins to keep your bones‚ organs‚ muscles‚ and blood operating in good condition. In order to produce the variety of proteins it requires‚ your body needs amino acids.

You need to eat the right kinds of foods—namely‚ those that contain dietary protein—so your body can build these essential amino acids. However‚ your body is unable to produce some amino acids‚ such as lysine. Therefore‚ it’s important that you include sources of this vital amino acid in your diet. Lysine can help your body in many ways‚ such as:

  • giving your body more energy

  • supporting cardiovascular health

  • helping your body absorb calcium‚ for strong bones and teeth

  • fighting viral infections

High-protein foods‚ such as meat‚ cheese‚ eggs‚ beans‚ and nuts‚ are good sources of lysine. In today’s busy world‚ many people find that they need amino acid supplements‚ as well. Vitanica’s Lysine Extra provides 800 mg of L-lysine in two convenient capsules. Its unique blend of herbal ingredients gives your immune system additional support to make it more effective at fighting infections.

Other active ingredients that support the effectiveness of lysine include:

  • St. John’s wort‚ which helps your body fight viral infections

  • Lemon balm‚ which may support healing from benign cold sores

  • Astragalus root‚ which stimulates your immune system and can help fight viruses

  • Oregon grape root‚ which can help reduce inflammation and fight bacterial infections

  • Myrrh gum‚ which causes your body to produce more white blood cells to fight infections and promote healing

In addition‚ it also provides vitamin C and zinc. Taking Lysine Extra also helps you avoid the uncomfortable symptoms associated with a deficiency in this amino acid‚ such as dizziness‚ fatigue‚ appetite loss‚ and nausea. Each bottle of Lysine Extra by Vitanica contains 60 capsules. The recommended dose is two to three capsules daily‚ unless otherwise directed by your health care provider.

Vitanica is committed to providing the best natural health supplements for women. It ensures that all of its products are made with organic herbs and extracts‚ and that they have been extensively tested for safety and effectiveness. Every Vitanica product is also vegetarian.

      So far so good

      from Indiana on 8/17/2017
      I've only been taking Lysine Extra by Vitanica for a month and so far I haven't had an outbreak. I would get them aleast once a month and a month has went by and no outbreak. To me I feel it works better then the prescription meds the doctor gives you and the fact that it's all natural ingredients is a plus. I only take one a day cause it has st Johns worth in it and wasn't sure how my body would react to it. Kinda bummed out to see its out of stock, but I guess that comes to show how good this product is.


      Affordable and works

    • Great Product for Herpes

      from Frisco TX on 8/19/2011
      Lysine Extra by Vitanica works much better than my main stream Dr. prescription. Have not had an outbreak in over 4 years. I use a maintenance dose of one in morning and one in the evening. My naturopathic Chiropractor put me on it.

      Great for Herpes

      from Dallas TX on 5/13/2011
      My naturopathic doctor put me on Lysine Extra by Vitanica when the meds the gynocologist gave me didn't work. I take 2 a day to keep flare ups from coming back.


      Great Product and good price at PureFormulas.
