L-Lysine - 150 Veggie Capsules
L-Lysine is an essential amino acid. Research supports L-Lysine's ability to impede the utilization of L-arginine by some lipid-coated viruses during key phases in their life cycle, which helps to reduce the recurrence, severity and healing time of cold sores.
•Reduces the recurrence and severity of cold sores •Supports immune function •Supports bone health •Enhances body building L-Lysine is one such amino acid. One of the nine essential amino acids that the body cannot produce on its own, L-Lysine must be obtained by dietary means or else the body will go deficient. For most people, deficiency is rare, as L-Lysine is found in significant amounts in several common foods, such as legumes, dairy, fish and meat. Those most likely to suffer from deficiency are vegetarians who do not consume enough legumes or individuals who consume a diet high in cereals and baked goods, as L-Lysine is involved in caramelization, the process that causes baked goods to turn brown.
