What's L-Lysine used for? Lysine is an indispensable amino acid that cannot be made by the body. Amino acids form the basis for protein, which helps construct and maintain the critical structures in the body. In any review of L -Lysine it is commonly found that is important for growth, tissue repair, and the production of hormones, enzymes and antibodies. Research efforts are being directed at a possible beneficial role of L-Lysine in effecting the herpes virus. L-Lysine is found in large quantities in muscle tissues. Consequently many find Lysine is helpful for the health and integrity of skin and useful in the treatment of cold sores.

The use of L-Lysine in the treatment of cold sores is well documented. The herpes virus, one of the underlying causes of cold sores, can be sparked off by a number of factors including over-consumption of certain types of foods (e.g. alcohol, chocolate, peanuts) rich in the amino acid L-Argine. When there is too much L-Arginine, L-Lysine is reduced in the body and when this imbalance occurs the herpes virus can be activated. So by taking L-Lysine and restoring the body's balance of these two amino acids, the virus can be overcome sooner. Excess exposure to sunshine can also weaken the immune system and bring on the herpes virus, as can stress, a major offender all year round. The topical use of A Vogel's Bio-Propolis together with L-Lysine will dramatically speed up the recovery period. It is not just a soothing ointment which will act as an effective barrier to protect the lips but it has amino acids, vitamins and minerals which will combine as an antifungal barrier to support lip health as they recover.
