Lysine: Lysine is an essential amino acid. Essential means that it is not produced by the body and therefore it must be taken in either by diet or by taking supplements. Lysine is found in foods such as yogurt, fish, cheese, brewer's yeast, wheat germ, pork, and other meats.

I've suffered from cold sores quite often and they can be pretty irritating as well as persistent. Sometimes, a sore would subside, only to reappear in the same place after a few days. This happened mostly during an attack of flu. I recently came to know of lysine (L-lysine) as an effective cure for cold sores. So far, the results have been amazing. The last couple of times that I got a cold, I took a 1000 mg dose of lysine for cold sores. I haven't had any sores so far. When I start feeling the familiar signs of a cold coming on, I take three 500 mg tablets every day, till I start feeling better. I've heard a lot of people say that they got no results with lysine. Personally, I rely on lysine for cold sores, and it works every time.

One of the best treatments for cold sores

I don't get cold sores often, but every time I have it, I am devastatingly traumatized with the whole experience. The cold sores hurt so bad that I am losing my appetite to eat. A friend recommended Lysine with cold sore ointment. I started taking Lysine as directed and use the cold sore ointment. Surprisingly, it gives a soothing relief…

I don't get cold sores often, but every time I have it, I am devastatingly traumatized with the whole experience. The cold sores hurt so bad that I am losing my appetite to eat. A friend recommended Lysine with cold sore ointment. I started taking Lysine as directed and use the cold sore ointment. Surprisingly, it gives a soothing relief from pain and gradually heals the cold sore. It worked well for me. It is easy to use and I can carry it in my purse all the time. I consider this as best treatment for my cold sores. I will definitely recommend this product to my friends.
