Info: 300 grams in Glass Bottle
Lysine, one of the best-known amino acids, is not only the building block of all proteins (where it's usually consumed, through our diets) and helps form the collagen in our bones, cartilage, and connective tissue, but it also has virus-fighting abilities which can help reduce outbreaks of cold sores (i.e., herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections).
Supplementing with l-lysine might also counteract a tendency to become sick more often (an insufficient intake of lysine can lead to a weakened immune response), or even help reduce anxiety (by increasing serotonin levels).
Each half teaspoon contains:
1500 mg L-Lysine (from L-Lysine Monohydrochloride). No other ingredients.
Vegan. Gluten-Free. Non-GMO.
Adults: Take 1/2 teaspoon one to two times per day to maintain good health or to help collagen formation. (For total doses between 1,500 and 3,000 mg per day.)
To reduce the recurrence of HSV infection, take 1000 mg (1/3 of a teaspoon) from 1 to 3 times a day. (Again, for a total dose of up to 3,000 mg per day.)
Store at room temperature (15 - 30C).
Consult a healthcare practitioner prior to use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you are following a low protein diet. Consult a healthcare practitioner if symptoms persist.
