How much Lysine, Vit C, Vit B, Zinc, etc?

Recommended Posts

justme53

I was diagnosed with genital HSV1 four days ago and have started a pretty strict diet and vitamin regimen. In addition to my Acyclovir, I'm taking Lysine, Vitamin C + Bioflavonoids, Zinc, and a Vitamin B Complex. The question is, how much of each am I supposed to be taking? During my outbreak, I'm taking 2000mg of Lysine a day (not all at one time, though, does that matter?), and then plan to reduce it when the outbreak goes away (but what do I reduce it to?). Then as far as the other vitamins, I'm just taking 1 tablet of each as that's what's recommended on the bottle. Should I be taking more? I don't know how much is too much but want to make sure it's enough.

Thanks!

as far as lysine goes, the min dose I've read is 1250 which of course is hard since the pills come in 500 mg doses.

Lysine

I've read the same thing...1,250 mg of Lysine a day. I'm taking 2,000 mg a day even when I don't have outbreaks - 1,000 in the morning and 1,000 at night. I also take Acyclovir - I think it's 400 mg 2 times a day.

That's all I'm taking and it seems to be doing the job ;)

Dosage is 1250mg minimal, so 500mg breakfeast, 500mg lunch and split one 500mg tablet for dinner and your there. I just take a 500mg w/each meal to make sure.

For an active OB the dosage should be upped to 2000mg a day...

i just found out i have genital herpes, and rather then take rx drugs (im not a believer in them) ive decided to go the herbal route with lysine and red marine algea. my first outbreak was AWFUL, sooo painful, but it went away after 3 days when i started taking these supplements

      Yes, just have sex wearing clothes and a condom, also don't kiss. No disclosure needed.

      Have sex  with at least one of you wearing clothes + a condom  next time, if you really want to protect him.

      All negative, Except for hepatitis B which is something you're vaccinated (They give you antibodies) against in the military. Before, I go through the trouble of re cropping another damn picture for you. I'd like to ask what your response will be if I show you the results and they're all negative?

      Universities receive most of their  funding from Pharma companies. Scientific studies aren't cheap, Pharmaceutical companies aren't going to fund research on food supplements when there's no pay off for them. It's naive to  think big businesses would fund research that'd directly decrease profit.  Then there's the possibility of the pharmaceutical companies bribing the government agencies from genuine health research, to keep themselves in business. https://thevaccinereaction.org/2018/04/big-pharma-pays-universities-for-most-medical-research-in-u-s-today/   Also, No one outside of the research community has the resources/contacts to prove they're cured. Even if they scored a negative on a western blot test/IGg, scrutinizers would just claim the virus was dormant or they never had it at all. Other than blood test, There is no easily accessible method to determine whether or not the virus is completely eradicated from your body.
