Herpes Lysine Treatment
Lysine is an essential amino acid found in red meat, fish and dairy products and one of the building blocks of protein.
Taking lysine supplements can prove highly effective in the treatment of Herpes cold sores by providing a higher does than is readily available through diet alone.
Studies have shown that a thousand mg supplement of lysine can reduce the occurrence of Herpes cold sores, and higher doses can be used to help treat the Herpes cold sore symptoms.
However, since it is inadvisable to take high does for long periods of time a lower dose should be returned to when the outbreak has cleared.
