Description Instructions Ingredients
Lysine is one of the eight essential amino acids that cannot be produced by the body.  For more than a decade, Lysine has been recommended as a treatment for cold sores and other symptoms caused by the Herpes Simplex I virus, which can lie dormant for years and recur without warning.  Lysine has been found to have other uses as well.

As a treatment for angina, Linus Pauling, PhD investigated Lysine.  All of Pauling’s subjects, who relied on sub-lingual nitroglycerine (NTG) for relief of their anginal pain, were able to stop their NTG after 3 – 4 weeks of taking 6 grams of Lysine and they remained pain free.  Their exercise tolerance improved and placed them in a position of accelerated cardiac healing.  Other studies have shown that Lysine can help to lower high blood pressure and elevated triglycerides, which would be beneficial to both heart patients and those at risk for developing heart disease.

Lysine may also be beneficial for post-menopausal females.  Post-menopausal females are at greater risk of developing osteoporosis, a disease characterized by the demineralization and thinning of bone, leaving them vulnerable to fractures.  The mechanism for Lysine in relationship to osteoporosis is increased efficiency in the utilization of calcium.  Lysine should not be looked at as a cure for osteoporosis, but another tool in preventing it.  Further, Lysine is crucial in the formation of collagen, the matrix protein holding the body together.  Collagen is important in keeping our skin from wrinkling as we age and because of a decline of hormones (progesterone and estrogen) women are especially prone to this effect.  Lysine supplementation can certainly help skin look and feel younger.

Lysine should be taken in amounts ranging from 500 mg to 6,000 mg per day in divided doses.  As with any supplements, always follow the advice of a natural health care provider.
