L-Lysine is an essential amino acid, which means that is cannot be manufactured by the body and must be obtained through the diet or by supplementation. Lysine is necessary for the production of all protein in the body including hormones, enzymes, and antibodies, as well as carnitine and collagen, which is the structural protein forming all connective tissue such as skin, tendon, and bone. L-Lysine also plays a major role in calcium absorption. Some evidence suggests that L-Lysine supplementation may help to support a healthy immune system as well as proper cardiovascular function.

It is one of the products that my dermatologist recommended. I already have known about this little miracle for years. I take it at night, the next day, the wrinkles are gone. When I take it for 2X/day, the large wrinkles are now small lines. It's terrific. And if it does this to my skin, I can only imagine what it is doing inside my skin. This is one terrific amino acid.

The Linus Pauling treatment for heart disease includes 3~6 grams of l-lysine a day. I thought that taking these pills would be the most efficient way to take that much. However I found them too big to swallow comfortably. The fact that they are tablets with sharp edges (rather than round capsules) only made taking them more difficult. After nearly choking on one, I decided there was no point in endangering my life in order to improve my health. It's a shame but I'll probably have to switch to taking 6 of the 500 mg ones. FYI I'm a 5'9" man so it's not a question of my having an abnormally small throat. On the other hand, it is possible that other people who are better at swallowing things might not have this problem with them.

When I start feeling super run down I take this on an empty stomach every few hours for one or two days, and it helps me bounce back quicker. The only downside to this product is that the tablets are quite large. It's okay for me, but you'll definitely want to choose a smaller dose if you have any trouble swallowing pills.

I heard these help get rid of painful cold sores and it really worked! Iv heard there's many other benefits too so hoping I will notice this soon and keep taking daily!
Huge Hard to Swallow

In error thought I was ordering GEL "CAPS "' but CAPs are huge hard cap shaped pills -- very difficult to swallow. Even if Lysine may be good quality, not very "bio-available"!
