Lysine helps to stop the virus which causes herpes. If you get ample amounts of this amino acid in
your diet it can help to reduce the frequency of the symptoms and make healing faster.
This is why it is recommended to eat foods that are high in Lysine, or take a Lysine supplement.
See the Supplements and Natural Therapies section of this guide for advice on what to look for in

What is Lysine?

Lysine is an amino acid that you obtain naturally through your diet. It is one of the amino acids that can only be acquired through your diet (or by taking a Lysine supplement).
Taken in adequate dosages, this amino acid has been scientifically proven to "slow down" and retard the growth of the herpes virus, as well as inhibit viral replication.  Viral replication is when the virus grows and multiplies in larger numbers.

Studies have shown that supplements of Lysine can reduce the frequency and intensity of herpes and cold sore outbreaks.
