The Herpes simplex virus can be taken care of with the supplementation of L-Lysine, a well-known amino acid. L-Lysine is one of the essential amino acids that the body needs to manufacture proteins. It is considered “essential” because the body cannot manufacture L-Lysine.
L-Lysine is a necessary building block for all protein in the body. L-Lysine plays a major role in calcium absorption, building muscle protein, recovering from surgery or sports injuries. It is amazing that something as simple as L-Lysine is involved in tissue repair, production of hormones, antibodies and enzymes as well as the synthesis of collagen and bone health. Most of us get adequate L-Lysine in their diet but those who have problems with the herpes virus may need supplemental L-Lysine to keep the virus in under control.
Research shows that lysine has anti-viral activity against the Herpes simplex. L-Lysine works to inhibit the growth of the virus by blocking its use of another amino acid – arginine.
In order for L-Lysine therapy to really be effective in preventing cold sores and outbreaks of genital herpes it is important that the diet also is low in arginine. Avoid foods high in arginine like chocolate, peanuts, almonds and other nuts, and seeds. It is also a good idea to focus on foods that are high in L-Lysine such as most vegetables, legumes, fish, turkey, and chicken.
L-Lysine is your natural as well as effective defense against sneaky nasty cold sores. Get back to feeling yourself by following the diet suggested above along with the supplementation of L-Lysine and you will be on the path of preventing flare-ups of the herpes simplex virus.
