L-Lysine from Webber Naturals is one of the best-known nutritional supplements for treating cold sores caused by theHerpes simplexvirus. L-Lysine is one of nine essential amino acids needed by the body to manufacture proteins. It is called "essential" because the body cannot manufacture it.
L-Lysine is involved in tissue repair, production of hormones and enzymes, and in the synthesis of collagen and bones. Most persons get adequate L-Lysine in their diet but those who have problems with the herpes virus may need supplemental L-Lysine to keep the virus in check. Laboratory research into lysine's anti-viral activity indicates that it may inhibit the growth of theHerpes simplexvirus by blocking the virus' use of arginine– another amino acid. Foods are high in arginine– like chocolate, peanuts, almonds and other nuts, and seeds– and should be avoided if you want to prevent cold sores.
Experts recommend combining therapeutic dosages of Webber Naturals L-Lysine with a low-arginine diet and extra nutritional help from vitamin C and zinc for effective control of the herpes simplex virus.
