IntroductionHello guys, I am back with a single ingredient review. I know it seems kind of boring, but I am a pretty regular user of L-lysine and I tried this and wanted to show my results. If I have a cut or a cold sore I have found that adding L-lysine helps me heal faster. I am a 45 year old guy, stressing my body with loosing weight and staying strong. Currently working out 5 to 7 days a week. Unfortunately when your stressed and family gets sick, I can get cold sores. So how did it work?
Ingredient ProfileL-Lysine @ 500mg: This is a simple profile (L-Lysine Hydrochloride). Normally for cold sores for me I use 1000mg 3 to 4 times a day. For normal use I use 1000mg once per day. I normally use 1000mg pills but the store was out and these where on sale.
These are pills and have no taste and no need to mix. The dosing is really dependent on what you are doing. They suggest 1 tablet 2 times per day on an empty stomach. As I stated above I have used it differently and haven't had any issues. If you need it you can figure it out.
EffectivenessThis stuff works for me, I heal faster and recover from cold sores (sometimes before the blister shows up). However, these are coated pills.... The problem I found out was that sometimes part of the tablet ended up in the toilet. I guess my stomach wasn't able to eat through the coating. Which would explain why these didn't work as well as the normal uncoated ones that I use. Here is some more reading on the benefits of L-Lysine.
ValueSo here is the kicker, this stuff is cheap. I bought it on sale, and it fits into my plans easily. Besides if you are single, you don't have time for cold sores. If your married (like me) you still don't like them, as they hurt and are a pain in the butt.
As of 2/21/2018 I found the following prices. I bought mine at Walgreens last time as they where on sale then as well.
The walgreens 2 for one really makes it cheap.
