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?

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.

      I hooked up with a girl yesterday and I lightly kissed her on the lips four or five times - these were not heavy deep kisses.  As she was leaving I noticed that she had a cold sore that was healing (scabbed) on the top part of her lip. My lips definitely made contact with the scab. I’ve never had a cold sore and my last std test was negative for everything . Any chance I don’t end up with HSV1 on my mouth now after this incident? I know it’s not the end of the world but everything I read says these sores are crazy contagious and primary outbreaks in adults can be brutal. Any insight is greatly appreciated

      From what I understand shedding studies are expensive but even getting quotes and estimates on this especially in a clinical setting would be a step in the right direction. @destroyhsv, maybe you can look up labcorp or quest diagnostics and call for an estimate or any local labs in your area.

      Hello everyone, Long story short - I had my first outbreak about a year ago, got swabbed and turned out positive to HSV-2. For the first month, I only took valaciclovir when I had an outbreak but seeing that I still had back to back outbreaks, the doctor decided to put me on suppressive therapy. This has never really helped, unfortunately. In the summer, I had no outbreaks for like one and half month but apart from that, I've been having outbreaks every other week. I saw a dermatologist about two weeks ago and he swabbed another lesion that was in my mouth, which in turn revealed positive to HSV-1, although I was on valtrex at that time. He seemed very surprised and said that not responding to valaciclovir is something extremely rare... But reading testimonies here, it doesn't seem to be as rare as people think. The last two~three weeks have been the worst for me: my outbreaks won't stop and it seems to be getting worst and worst. 2 days ago, my doctor put me on the non-generic valaciclovir  just to see if I responded better to the "real" drug but this has not helped so far.  I'm a healthy adult, I eat well, get plenty of sleep (I even take naps ) and exercise 4 to 5 days a week. I supplement daily with organic acerola vitamin C (1000mg), lysine (1 to 2g) and magnesium (500 mg to 1g) and take 1 x 500mg valtrex in the morning and evening.  I'd like to hear stories of people who managed to stop or at least reduce their recurrences and what worked for them. I really need help because that is killing my sexual life, and I'm not even 30. I've read a lot of studies on the internet about people developing resistance to ACV and the likes but none of them mentions an alternative solution for people like me. Actually, I'm not even sure I have developed resistance to ACV because the drug never really worked for me. Moreover, the very few acknowledged ACV resistant cases were in majority immunocompromised patients and as far as I know, this is not my case. I wouldn't really care about that virus if I had only one or two outbreaks a year, but having it non-stop is very hard to handle psychologically. I can't have sex, drink, eat chocolate... Even read that exercising too much could trigger outbreaks. What's left for me to do? Shave my head, go to Bhutan, live with the monks and meditate 12 hours a day?

      I'd participate and pay for it if you figure out how to do a shedding study. I don't think anything other than a shedding study makes sense.

      HSV-2 is only required to be disclosed in some states of the US if and only if you know or could have been reasonably expected to know you have it. There are no laws surrounding HSV-1 disclosure or transmission.
