What is L-Lysine used for?

L-Lysine is an essential amino acid that is important for immune function and tissue repair. It is commonly used for cold sores and in sports performance. Lysine may benefit those who have anxiety, diabetes and osteoporosis. These stem from Lysine's ability to convert fats into energy, assist calcium absorption, form collagen matrix, regulate the brain serotonergic pathway and inhibit HSV viral replication (by competing with arginine hence inhibiting viral protein synthesis).

How much Lysine should I take?

Typical doses range from 500mg to 3g daily. If using for cold sore prevention, take 500mg-1g per day. If using for cold sore treatment, take 1g three times a day for a total dose of 3g daily. For other purposes, generally speaking taking 1g once or twice a day should suffice.

When should I take Lysine?

Lysine can be taken any time of day. If taking it a few times a day, just space it out evenly. If using for osteoporosis, take with calcium to increase calcium absorption. If using for sports, you can it either before workout or after workout. However, most protein powders and amino acid blends already contain this amino acid so you may not need to take it separately.

What are the side effects and precautions of Lysine?

Diarrhoea, abdominal cramps and cramps are comon side effects of Lysine but usually are very mild. Since Lysine is an amino acid, if you have kidney disease you should not over-consume this supplement before consulting your doctor.
