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...

red marine algea

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

      It's not clear.  The experiments in which they inactivated 2-4% latent HSV in mice, was definitely in living mice. The research paper is very clear about that.  It appears that in May 2018, they also reported nearly 20-30% inactivation of latent HSV in living mice. It's not clear what the 90% is referring to, whether in living mice or some artificial latency model using mice sells in vitro.  I really hope that it was in living mice.  That would make sense, since the earlier experiments were in living mice.  But in any case, as you mentioned, this research is progressing very well. Let's continue to try to raise money for it.
