Looking for Lysine Supplement

Recommended Posts

abe1976

I read the what is Lysine link on the right and would like to find a good Lysine supplement that can provide the recommended dose, be natural, and preferably have Vitamin C, Bioflavonoids and Zinc, be affordable, and not have to be taken more than twice a day. Anyone know of a good supplement, or combination of supplements that fit this description? I am a vegan and realized that my diet must be high in Arginine, and from what I read here my diet may be causing me to have more outbreaks, so I think taking Lysine combination will be very helpful.

Check out the Dynamiclear link on the right side of this page. They have a lysine combination pill that is reasonable. And if you put in the code listed on this site in the comments on the order form, you get a 10% discount for being a member of this site.

Lysine

Also, your local health food store probably carry Quantum Health brand Lysine.

Thanks. That look like exactly the pill that is recommended by this website. It has all the ingredients recommended and in the right dosage. Do I take 2 pills at the same time once per day, or 1 pill twice per day?

I use Quantum Health - Super Lysine Plus, they are aweson, the best Lysine pills that I've taken before. They are great for herpes. They are only 6 bucks from this website... http://www.luckyvitamin.com/item/itemKey/52413?iorb=4764&utm_source=yahooss&utm_medium=yss&utm_campaign=yss

Thanks for the link. Do you know if this the natural Lysine and vitamin c or synthetic? It has a number of ingredients, but does not contain Zinc, which this site recommends. Also, do you know if it contains bioflavonoids?

You say it is the best Lysine pills you have taken before. Have you tried the pills recommended above by Justmyself?

I take 2 of the Lysine complex pills in the morning.

What are the added benefits of the extra herbal ingredients in this product?

Cvs

I just purchased 100 pills 1000mg of L-Lysine at CVS for 8.99. Those pills are huge.

Has anyone tried Olive Leaf? My multi-vitamin has C, B and Zinc, so I'm pretty well covered on that one.

Just a side-note to anyone taking Lysine pills out there... I had to go with vegetarian-friendly Lysine tablets (by NOW, found on Amazon) because some of the Lysine-combination herpes therapy pills have licorice, which can affect my birth control pills.

Now I take the NOW 100% L-Lysine powder. A one-pound bottle is like $10, and there are 822, 552mg doses, I take 2 doses once a day and it lasts forever. I believe it has lessened the frequency and severity of my outbreaks.

      Day 14 No improvements  new blisters keep forming in the same area. Still using Acyclovir 2 x 800mg/day and all the other supps.

      What dosage are you using daily, and how long did it take for you to notice a difference? I didn't see any improvement in 8 days but realise it might have been too short for an experiment.

      WelI I got my results. I got scared because they say consultation needed but I know I have hsv1. So I see it's negative for hsv2. Using the igG bloodtest. It's been about 5 wks since I've felt funny. Again the derm said malluscum and another doc say monders. I'm saying I disturbed the area from being rough for hrs with a condom. My question to the experienced ones is after 5 wks would you think is have some kind of detectable antibodies. Again nothing ever blistered or ulcrred. After sex I remember using antibacterial hand soap down ther in the shower and honestly that's when I burned for a few days lol. That went away and I'm left with a sore raw feel. I have an appointment soon. I want to make sure it's H before they prescribe and operate smh.    Questions.  After 5 weeks never ulcered or pussed, would you think I should have some kind of antibodies fighting it off so it doesn't ulcer? Or I should be having a full ob by now because I have been stressing. Not eating losing sleep and all. What's your intake my friends. Btw the igG test I did specifically says 4 to 6 wks. 6 wks itll above 90% accurate. Elisa herpe select. Is the name of it. I'm 5 wks in from discomfort.

      Had same symptoms . Burning in penis , nerve pain , lower back pain etc  girl I caught it from had positive viral culture on her vagina for genital herpes 8 years prior but tested negative igg prior to us sleeping together so she assumed she didn't have it anymore .  started dating another girl recently who had positive swab for herpes on vagina in 2013 but tests negative for igg for both types of HSV currently . She also assumed she "beat it" and was no longer a carrier . She gets burning nerve pain all over , constant lower back pain , itchiness all over etc  with both women I experienced a burning sensation in fingertips upon touching there vagina , with the second one I knew exactly what was happening and it scared the hell out of me . Now I'm going thru the initial exposure symptoms all over again except they are alittle different . Headache , pressure behind right eye , burning and pinching sensations all over , lower back pain , weakness and fatigue , burning spots on skin, outbreak on chin , cramping etc I had chronic health issues and poor GI function prior to catching HSV so my immune system responds very poorly to these viruses. testing for hsv 2 is very , very inaccurate . And there are multiple strains of hsv 2 . Viruses mutate slightly with each new host as does  the antigen and antibody response . I'm learning the hard way that just because you have hsv 2 doesn't mean you are immune to hsv 2, so if you start dating someone new who has hsv2 you are going to pick up there strain and they will pick up yours . I currently test positive for only hsv 1 and it's been 8 months since I caught type 2.   one word of advice , I would recommend eating a lower histamine diet and avoid highly acidic foods or drinks . They flare the virus for me and others as well. Also keep stress levels down and be sure to get low intensity exercise everyday to balance nervous system. wilson is very, very uneducated when it comes to hsv and the symptoms it can present as well as testing accuracy . You would think he would be clued in after reading how many consistencies in "atypical" symptoms people post about after exposure on this board as well as the the large amount of people who have positive swabs but negative IGG testing or people with classic hsv symptoms but negative blood work results long after initial exposure... so little is known about these viruses and what they do to our bodies , another word of advice is that after initial exposure rate of viral shedding is very high so be very careful around people you live with or come in contact with . This virus spreads like wildfire in people right after initial exposure . It lives on inanimate surfaces and objects for a minimum of 4 hours and up to several days depending on uv light exposure , air temp and humidity and other environmental factors . All it takes is virus to skin contact for transmission , and in someone with poor health or of old age they pick it up much easier and it can cause serious health issues.

      hello I received oral from woman with possible herpes. Could someone here please tell how initial breakout looks on glans of penis ? I noticed a bit of redness on penis head, with what looks like beginning of bumps. I have also noticed one side of my buttocks has muscle pain, but cannot remember doing any exercise or movement to trigger this muscle pain.

      The possible herpes area does not feel pain, but it's only been 3-4 days now. I feel some tingles, but not sure if psychosomatic at this point due to focusing to see if I feel symptoms. There is definite new redness with skin looking slightly differently textured. I will be going to a clinic tonight.  Thanks
