L-Lysine is an Essential Amino Acid. It cannot be manufactured by the body and must be obtained from protein-rich foods or from supplements. It balances out the amino acid Arginine, providing nutritional support against retroviruses such as Herpes and Shingles. L-Lysine promotes calcium absorption and has an anti-anxiety effect. Lysine is often deficient in vegetarian diets. There is some evidence that Lysine can fight Flu viruses as well.
If needing anti-viral support for Herpes or Shingles, combine Lysine with Systemic Formulas VIVI Virox in this Multi Pack. For more information, read my article here on foods that affect herpes and shingles.
2 capsules daily, between meals, or as directed. Can take up to 6 per day when fighting an active Herpes or Shingles infection. Avoid consumption of nuts and seeds, chocolate and coconut flour or coconut butter to reduce Arginine consumption known to trigger viruses.
500 mg l-Lysine HCl; 10 mg. fat-soluble vitamin C in a vegetarian capsule of cellulose and water.
