Additional Information


People take Lysine for skin and lip health, mainly to aid in collagen production and reduce the reoccurrence of cold sore breakouts.**

Lysine is an essential amino acid that is a necessary building block for all protein**. Like its fellow amino acids, the main task of lysine is to help build protein** – although that’s far from all it does. Lysine is also an important player in the production of various enzymes, hormones, and immune compounds. Lysine is also used for the health and integrity of skin and lips, and plays an important role in immune system function**.

    Tips and Tricks

    Tip: Experts believe that taking lysine on an empty stomach increases its efficacy.


    Q: Can I take lysine every day?
    A: Lysine has been traditionally used as a supplement to aid skin health. Many people choose it for its role in collagen production and its effectiveness in clinical studies to prevent cold sores that are a result of Herpes Simplex Virus 1 (HSV1). In the clinical studies, it is suggested that 1000mg (1g) daily helps to keep the body’s blood level high enough to ward off a breakout of cold sores. In some other studies, the suggested daily dose is 1-3g.

    Q: Is Lysine an antiviral?
    A: Lysine is an antiviral, but only confirmed to aid the body in preventing a specific virus: Herpes Simplex 1 (HSV1). Many people take lysine along with zinc and vitamin C as part of an immune boosting program, but there is little evidence that lysine will help the body fight viruses of any kind. The way lysine helps prevent HSV1 outbreaks is through its role in the body’s production of Arginine (another amino acid). Arginine helps HSV1 replicate, and lysine blocks arginine’s activity.

    Q: Does Lysine cause hair loss?
    A: A deficiency of lysine has been linked to hair loss. Taking care of your hair means taking care of your hair follicles where the roots are formed. Lysine is present in the hair’s root, so supplementing with lysine may actually be beneficial to your hair growth and strength of your strands.
