Below we've broken down the main functions of our L-Lysine 500mg and the benefits it can provide.
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, L-lysine supplementation was shown to reduce the occurrence, severity, and healing time of cold sores.
Since it's one of the building blocks for immune cells, supplementation encourages healthy immune responses during infections.
Research shows L-Lysine can protect the body against cold sores and the length of an outbreak by blocking the activity of arginine, and amino acid that promotes the growth of HSV.
