L-Lysine, 90 Caps
I prescribe L-Lysine for chronic Herpes infections (including HSV-1, HSV-2, HHV-6, and EBV). Herpes viruses require the amino acid arginine in their replication cycle; Lysine looks enough like arginine that the virus will use it instead, but it will prevent the rest of the cycle from moving through to completion. It's like "gumming up the works."
Recommended Dose: For a current herpetic outbreak, 3-4 grams daily. For maintenance between breakouts, 1 gram daily.
Serving Size: 1 vegetable capsule.
Amount Per Serving
l-lysine ... 500mg (free-form)
