I have used this particular brand of L-Lysine for years as it is so effective at preventing painful canker sores on my lips when out in the sun too long or during times of stress. It includes the B vitamin required for proper absorption, which is great so I don't have to buy a supplement just for that reason. I used to get the sores a couple of times a year - now it is maybe 1x every 5 years. I take just 1 pill per day.

Does not seem to make a difference
Posted by 5337363683637102684 on Dec 07, 2014
I tried this for genital herpes for almost a year. Took 1-2 tablets every day(i'm a petite woman) and doubled/tripled the dose when i could feel an outbreak coming and during the outbreak. But it didn't seem to make any difference. Stopped using it, and I have not had an outbreak in a while(of course I guess this is just a coincidence) Maybe it only works for Mouth Herpes...
Better than Whole Foods brand

I ran out and bought some lysine at Whole Foods but my symptoms returned so I am back to Country Life to stay. This big bottle saves money, too.

This is the only thing that keeps cold sores away :o)
big tablet but probably works

I could no longer afford my oral herpes medication, so I decided to take this every day along with Vit C and several other supplements. 6 months later and I haven't had out breaks when I used to get cold sores almost every month! However it is a little too large to swallow comfortably.
A shame of the added b6

Can't buy this anymore, because there's added b6. B6 is already in my daily multi-vitamin supplement and it's easy to get too much b6 in your system. And too much B6 can be harmful. Really a shame, because the L-Lysine is really good!
best of the best
