                I am very prone to canker sores. When I feel one coming on I start 1 tab twice a day, and rarely get a canker sore now.

                  First thing I take in the morning. Noticed that my immune system has been stronger thanks to this and eating healthier. Garlic taste but I've gotten used to it and I don't mind it as much. Worth the purchase.

                    I take this regularly during the cold and flu months to boost my immune system. It is also great to stop cold sores. I take 6 pills whenever I feel one coming and then taper to 5 the next day and 4 the next day then back to the 3 I take daily. It works like a charm!

                      It is so rare for me to write a review on anything, but this Super Lysine bottle deserves my time and I hope it does you as well as a reader. Was diagnosed with G. Herpes, and felt like my life was over. Was prescribed plenty or expensive drugs that did nothing, in fact made things worst. And with internet searching I came across this. I take 2 Super Lysine daily on an EMPTY stomach and……….. all my symptoms and outbreaks are gone. Gone. Just like that. That simple. If I do get an outbreak (and I Had only gotten one since taking this-while traveling) I up the daily intake to 5 to 6 tablets and the outbreak was not anywhere near as bad or as severe or as long as it had been before. I do like to take a multivitamin and Super C but I have to say this Super Lysine has been a life saver. Taste is not that bad and the pills are very easy to swallow (with room temperature water). Highly recommended

                        This product has given me relief from many Cold Sores over the years. I take one a day faithfully, but if I feel that funny feeling, I start taking 2 or 3 each time I feel that awful tingle deep below the skin. When I start this right away and continue the Cold Sore never erupts. In the event that I do not have the opportunity to do this and I get one, it shortens the length of time and eases the discomfort when I take the Super Lysine Plus. I also put Abreva on the sore itself to help it heal.
                        If you have a problem with any type Herpes try taking this daily and see if it reduces the onset of the breakout. Being exposed to the sun or stress can certainly add to the possibilty of getting an outbreak, so go prepared and take the Super Lysine Plus with you at all times.

                          I take Super Lysine 3x daily and it eliminates my having to take a prescriptive drug for a viral flare up. The only complaint I have is the online discription doesn't state to take the pills BEFORE meals...nor do the directions on the lable. That is found at the bottom, so if you don't read the entire label you are likely to miss it and the Lysine not be as effective.

                              I have tried some other formulas due to HSV and this is the only one I can actually feel results from. Only since using this have I been able to reduce the amount of antivirals I take. I love it so much that I bought another backup bottle when I am not even a quarter of the way through my current bottle. I really feel a difference! This is definitely the go-to Lysine supplement!! I take it 3 xs a day on an empty stomach (before the main meals I eat). I also thought I'd mention that I really don't notice a bad taste with it...subtle garlic smell to it, but I take it with water and there is never a lingering taste.

                                  This is the only product that keeps my cold sores and inner mouth sores in check. So much better than getting an expensive prescription form the doctor that I can only take for 3-4 days and then 3 days later start having sores all over again. Not with Super Lysine Plus. Take 3 tablets a day and if my immunity level drops due to extra stress and lack of sleep I might take a couple extra just to insure I don't get a herpes simplex sore. Just that extra boost is so much better than looking like a monster from the sores.

                                    Comments about Quantum Super Lysine Plus + - 180 Tablets:

                                    While visiting a Chiropractor/Naturopathic doctor and asking about a good supplement Super Lysine Plus was recommended along with a good Omega 3 supplement. Since taking Super Lysine I haven't had my yearly 2-3 colds. I once ran out and within weeks had another cold. Since then I always take one pill with breakfast and that seems to suffice. No more colds. I rarely recommend any supplement but this one does the trick for my immune system.

                                    I used to live in Arizona and then the Caribbean. While in AZ golfing I'd get cold sores, then in the Caribbean surfing and sailing, I'd get cold sores.

                                    Then I was turned onto this product, in the last 2.5 years I have had maybe 3 outbreaks... max. I used to get them every couple of months. The only reason I broke out 3 times was because I would forget to take the pills with me on a trip for a couple days and would be doing to much fun in the sun...we all know what happens then.

                                    Don't ever be afraid to use this product...I buy a years supply at a time so I'm never without.

                                    It would get 5 stars if it didn't smell and taste so bad.

                                        I am so glad that I did my research and started taking this wonderful product. Suffer no more with your cold sores, this stuff really works. I take 3 pills on an empty stomach daily without fail. I have to keep this stuff on hand.

                                        I agree with you because I was using this product earlier. I ran out and used another brand. Since using another brand I've had at least 2 outbreaks in one month. I'm going back to my original Super Lysine Plus brand. This product is great to use!

                                            I take 3 Lysine Pills on an empty stomach daily without fail. This is the best medicine for the prevention of cold sores. Sometimes I can feel a tingle, but I just continue taking the natural rememdy and I haven't had an outbreak in over a year.

                                                Last few years I've been breaking out in cold sores, and have been lucky enough to learn of the benefits of lysine; in particular this product. In addition to a healthy approach to life (avoiding trigger-foods, stress reduction techniques, a good multi-vitamin and a daily dose of 1000mg vitamin C), I take Quantum's Super Lysine+. It absolutely works, but the directions only say to take 3 tablets daily... I called customer service for more specifics, and was told they're meant to be taken as 1 tablet 3x per day (like with meals). This approach more than any other has kept me outbreak free, and when I slip up in that healthy approach to life, I simply increase the dosage as if I'm having an outbreak. Bottom line: If you get cold sores I have found that taking 1500mg of lysine spread out over the day is perfect for prevention, and that Quantum's Super Lysine+ works wonders. Hope my review helps at least one fellow cold sore sufferer!

                                                    Being a dietitian I hear all the time how supplements aren't worth the money spent on them, and there is some validity to that; you have to have "quality" supplements and that usually isn't the cheapest. But I'll also add that I pay almost double for this same product ($17.99+tax) at my local health food store so it's almost B1G1F on this site! My husband and I have used this product daily, faithfully for almost 2yrs. I have auto immune disease and he has herpes virus. Since using this product, I have had no psoriasis break outs and only 2 lupus attacks that were much milder than my norm and I'm under more stress than ever working FT and taking 9hrs grad classes each semester for a yr now.My husband has had only 2 mild attacks that never progressed to break out and had been having them almost monthly! I'm not a touter of supplements, preferring food as the way to go but when you have a compromised immune system and food isn't enough, go for a high quality supplement and this is it!

                                                    As an immune stimulant, I'd talk with your doctor about taking this if you have Lupus. Just a hunch of mine. I use it for oral fever blisters and it works amazingly.

                                                    I also have psoriasis and autoimmune arthritis. I've taken lysine for cold sores for years, so wonder if the autoimmune benefits from this product are from the licorice and garlic. I switched to Lysine+ and feel less fatigue. Thanks for the info!

                                                        I have been taking this product for about 1 year now. I LOVE IT. About 3 years ago gums would become inflamed and swollen and it would last for about a week. It started happening every couple of months. I was told by my dentist that it sounded like the same virus that causes cold sores which can also affect the gums by swelling up. Being that this is contagious you can imagine that I was extremely stressed out about this since I did not want to pass this on to my husband or family.

                                                                I take 3 pills daily for control of genital herpes plus one pill a day of Vitamin shoppe active-c 1000mg. It works great. When taking valtrex I feel lightheaded and it does nothing for my outbreaks sometimes making them worse. This is a more natural way to prevent or shorten outbreaks but you have to take at least 3 a day every day. I just ran out and started using another lysine I had on hand and it did nothing. Some people don't believe lysine works but for me it does. But it has to be this lysine no other brand. I also drink the Triple Leaf white tea and that helps also.

                                                                The label says take 3 a day, not sure if this is all at once or 3 times a day? Also should 3 be taken all the time or is a lower dose to prevent cold sores just as effective?

If I'm beginning to feel under the weather or feel a canker sore/cold sore coming on I'll up my dosage and also include more Vitamin C as well. I've been very happy with this product and have been taking it for quite a number of years now. I highly recommend it if you're inclined to get cold sores. Also if you're having an outbreak then be conscious of the L-Arginine to L-Lysine ratio in your diet you can look online for charts with the ratio of L-Lysine to L-Arginine in different foods. This can be quite helpful.

                                                                I have been taking a different lysine product (1000 mg daily). I started taking super lysine plus when I had a particularly bad flare up of cold sores and had run out of other lysine. I notice the dosage is 4500 mg per day. Do I only take it when a cold sore is coming on? (I've noticed great results already!). Or do I continue to take 4500 mg on a regular basis? That seems like a lot. Maybe cut back to one tablet (1500) a day once the flare up is completely gone? I don't want to overdose myself, but I am sold on this product. Thank you for your help.

While I had great success in taking the pills as directed, I had to stop because they contain licorice root which raised my blood pressure. Since I was taking them as maintenance rather than suppression, I am not sure about lowering the dose. You can check the web regarding lysine to be safe. Hope this helps. PS, I am now taking SuperImmune+ by the same manufacturer 1500 x 3 daily, works just as well, and no problems.

                                                                I have flat warts all over my face and after doing some research on l-lysine i though it would be a good to take these supplements. Will these actually help warts? because everyone seems to be saying that they are good for cold sores
