Lamberts L-Lysine provides 500mg of the amino acid l-lysine which has been shown to help prevent and treat cold sores.

Studies show l-lysine tablets and supplements helps to speed recovery from, and prevent recurrences of cold sores. Benefits appear to be primarily due to the ability of l-lysine to antagonise l-arginine, which otherwise promotes herpes growth, but l-lysine may also have direct anti-viral properties which is why it is often considered as the best treatment for cold sores.

Several studies show accelerated recovery from herpes simplex infections using l-lysine supplements. It appears that the best preventative results may be obtained when l-lysine is combined with vitamin C, zinc and immune enhancing herbs, together with a diet that promotes an increase in lysine to arginine ratio. Good sources of lysine in food include fish, chicken, beef, lamb, milk, cheese, beans, eggs and potatoes whilst foods such as nuts, linseeds, mackerel and buckwheat should be avoided.

L-Lysine deficiency may be a factor in the loss of calcium from bones. Preliminary studies indicate that lysine deficiency is associated with excretion of calcium in the urine. Additional lysine may therefore be of value in those at risk of osteoporosis such as menopausal women and the elderly.

L-Lysine is a precursor of carnitine, a potent cardiovascular tonic and has also been shown to bond to heavy metals aiding their removal.
