Lysine vs L-Lysine

Recommended Posts

Is Lysine the same as L-Lysine?

I didn't realize the difference until after I bought it today.

Also, how much should I be taking daily? I have HSV-1 genitally (only 1 OB so far since I was diagnosed 6 weeks ago). I am not on daily anti-virals as I would like to wait before trying those.

Thanks.

As far as I know they are the same thing. My doctor reccomended to me that I take 1000 mg daily, but 500 is good too. Also I was told to take 50 mg of zinc to help strengthen your immune system which ultimately means less outbreaks! Hope this helps you!
