    Lysine is an essential amino acid that is required for skin, bone, collagen and elastin support and production. Lysine can be taken to support immune function, as well as provide support for a healthy cardiovascular system. Lysine is also a precursor to carnitine, which helps support the transport of fatty acids into the mitochondria, thus supporting energy production.

    My vet recommended L-Lysine for one of my cats who suffers from regular eye infections. Giving her the lysine twice per day at the first sign of symptoms has helped keep the infections at a minimum. We are super happy - she feels better and goes to the vet a lot less and we spend a lot less money!

    Works pretty well

    Seems to cut down on "cold sores" and similar problems. Even when I have one, it seems to last a shorter time.

      I bought this because I got shingles...in the ear...yeah OW!! Helps a tonn!! And I was pleasantly surprised how nice my skin looked too after taking it. A lot of my acne cleared right up. I'm 45 ...I take 2 in the morning and two in the evening. Worked so well I had my 17 yr old daughter take one in the morning and her acne is clearing up as well. It sure cut down the duration of the shingles ...would definitely recommend it to anyone with shingles.

        I use 500mg l-lysine, every other day as a preventative for cold sores. In the summer with the hot sun or stressful periods I take one each day. If I should get an eruption, I double the dose.

                            I'm using L-Glutamine with L-Arginine and L-lysine to build back muscles that were in atrophy from multiple operations 40 years ago. I've been using this combination now for about 3 years and slowly, but surely there are now muscles and nerves where there none before.

                            Are these real capsules or are they tablets? How easy are they to swallow? I have a strong gag reflex. Have trouble swallow large tables.

                            What is the recommended dosage per day?
                            A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Aug 26, 2015
                            Best Answer: I take 1000 mg daily and have for years to help bolster my immune system. Seems to work!! I also give it to my cats but only 250 mg in the a.m. and 250 in the p.m. One has gingivitis and it helps to control that. The other takes it as an immune system bolster as well as they both go outside and have exposure to other cats who may not be as healthy. Hope this helps!

                            I take an L-Lysine 500mg. at times when I get a sore or blister in my mouth, on my tongue, gums, etc. However the tablets I have been getting are so big I cannot swallow them.
                            Are there any Lysine products in soft capsule form that are easy to swallow?
                            A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Jan 28, 2015
                            Best Answer: The Lysine capsules are much easier to swallow. They aren't small, but I take them with yogurt. In fact, I take all of my supplements with yogurt, and I find they go down much easier that way.

                            Anothre site suggested that this might be useful to treat Bell's Palsy. Any feedback?
                            A Vitamin Shoppe customer on May 5, 2014
                            Best Answer: I use L-Lysine daily to prevent/treat herpes simplex, which occurs inside my mouth. Works great. Have not heard about Bell's Palsy treatment, but it couldn't hurt to try -- it's safe enough.

                            I keep a pitcher of fresh-brewed decaf green tea (bought in bulk from Amazon) in my fridge (add lemon juice & sweetener) & drink it daily instead of water. A surprise side-effect several years ago was that it cured my rosacea! I now blend it with hibiscus -- not only healthy, but delicious. Hey, you never know!
