This lesser dose vitamin is suited for everyday users, while the double strength variety is better suited for those suffering from recurrent cold sores or other concerns. L-Lysine is an essential amino acid that must be obtained through the
diet or through supplementation. Lysine is necessary for the production
of all proteins in the body, and is required for the maintenance of the
structural proteins collagen and elastin, which form all connective
tissue such as skin, tendon, and bone. L-Lysine supports a healthy
immune system which in turn helps to fight cold sores. In addition, L-Lysine is also a precursor to
L-carnitine, which is needed for fat metabolism and energy production,
which can support good health. Tablet delivery avoids a
gelatin capsule and provides a vegetarian / vegan option.
