No one likes the uncomfortable and embarrassing appearance of the herpes simplex virus HSV, more commonly known as cold sores. Quantum Health has formulated a potent blend of the amino acid lysine along with antioxidants and other immune boosting ingredients, in either tablet or liquid extract/tincture form, that aid to maintain good health and reduce the recurrence of HSV.
Cold sore outbreaks may be caused by a variety of factors such as illness, stress, fatigue or coming into contact with someone who has a cold sore. Research indicates that supplementing lysine can drastically reduce the duration and healing time of cold sores, as well as prevent their recurrence. In addition, eating foods that are naturally high in lysine, such as fruits, vegetables, eggs, fish, beef and dairy products, may also aid in reducing the duration and reoccurrence of cold sores. However, try to avoid foods that are high in arginine, such as chocolate, wheat, and nuts, as this amino acid supports the replication of the herpes simplex virus in the body.
