Lysine *Ointment* at GNC?

Recommended Posts

ObviouslyConfused

Just wondering if anyone was using the Lysine Ointment found at GNC? I was searching for tablets that more than 500mg b/c I HATE the way Lysine taste and I happen to find it. I'm curious if this product will also help in the genital area (at least for those with external OB's), and am willing to try it for $6 if it does haha. Any input is more than welcome :)

do you have a Vitamin World near you? I get the 1000mg lysine from there and it has no taste, giant freaking horse pills but no taste!

Not sure if I do or not :confused: I'll have to look into that. The ones I have now have no coating (I have problems swallowing pills even though I'm taking 8 a day right now) and whenever I take them I get that chalky, horrid taste :???:

Let us know if the cream works. It can't hurt, right?

I also hate taking the 1000 mg. "horse pill" Lysine! They're horrible to swallow and feel like they get stuck in my throat half the time, and I don't have an issue taking pills!

I've seen that Lysine cream before...let us know how it works for you.

As for Lysine pills, I usually take 3 of these a day:

It has Lysine, Eccinacea, Vit C, Garlic, and a ton of other immune boosters.

Then I take one or two of these a night:
