Facts About L-Lysine

l-Lysine, an amino acid, provides nutritional support for the body's natural defenses. You need lysine to be alive, it is essential. You have to get about 1 gram a day to keep in protein balance, but you can take lysine, pure lysine, a perfectly non toxic substance in food, as pills, which puts extra lysine molecules in the blood. They enter into competition with the lysyl residues on the wall of arteries and accordingly count to prevent Lipoprotein(a) from being deposited, or even will work to pull it loose and destroy atherosclerotic plaques [Linus Pauling, Aug 1994]. Lipoprotein(a) is the major cause of heart and blood vessel diseases. It is ten times more dangerous than the LDL Cholesterol (Bad cholesterol).

Linus Pauling is the one and only two times Nobel Prize winner. Pauling therapy of human cardiovascular disease consists of megadose vitamin C and Lysine.

He recommended that every adult should take at least 3 grams of vitamin C and 1-2 grams of L-lysine per day as a preventative against heart attacks and stroke.

Those who are considered high risk, (that is, anyone whose mother, father, sister, or brother, has had a heart attack or stroke), should take at least 3 to 6 grams of vitamin C and 2 to 3 grams of lysine per day.

And those who have had a heart attack or stroke should take at least 6 or more grams of vitamin C and 4 to 6 grams of lysine. This, together with vitamin A and E, was his specific recommendation for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease.

L-Lysine is particularly helpful in restoring normal arginine levels important for the maintenance of healthy gum and lip tissue. L-Lysine is also an effective natural remedy for herpes infections and cold sores.

One double-blind placebo-controlled study followed 52 participants with a history of herpes flare-ups.5 While receiving 3 g of L-lysine every day for 6 months, the treatment group experienced an average of 2.4 fewer herpes flare-ups than the placebo group—a significant difference. The lysine group's flare-ups were also significantly less severe and healed faster.

Another double-blind placebo-controlled crossover study on 41 subjects also found improvements in the frequency of attacks.
