Not as effective and tablets are WAAAYYYY too big
Posted by Reviewer1741178 on Oct 30, 2012
Source Naturals is one of the supplement brands that I purchase often. Recently I bought the L-Lysine 1,000 mg 100 tablets because of the low price. The supplement doesn't seem to be as effective for my purposes as compared to other brands I've used. Plus the pills in tablet form are way too big. They are hard to swallow.
a must for balancing high arginine foods
Posted by Jeanne1974 on Jul 19, 2014
I take this with rice protein-pea protein shakes, as the high arginine makes me break out with cold sores. I also take it with vitamin C in juice in the morning as part of Linus Pauling's protocol for anti-aging.

I am satisfied with this product, however be cautious, pills are really really huge and I am used to swallowing big pills but those are the biggest I have ever seen, I manage to swallow them but still. I am taking lysine for healthy tissue maintaning and stronger bones and teeth also to help fight with cold sore. I am not sure, but while taking lysine my lips got chopped, dry and itchy. Maybe because of imbalance of other amino acids, but still, I find it odd.

Lysine in the long term I use to like to prevent the formation of plaques in blood vessels. It helps to reduce cholesterol and triglycerides. It helps calcium absorption. I take 1 tablet. daily. I do not recommend taking along with arginine. When did they find this information helpful. Please press yes. Thank you Joseph
The ultimate in viral erradication

You must always have a bottle of Lysine in the house for viral attacks, cold sores, flu fevers AND encephalitis. A must have for regeneration of the nervous system upon which viruses live to destroy thereby causing pain in random places.

I take 2 of these before lunch and before dinner. They seem to decrease anxiety and improve cognitive ability for me, I really tend to be more sharp & serious when taking these. I combine lysine with some zinc picolinate since they are supposed to be synergistic.
Helps with cold sores, skin sores
Posted by Reviewer3065769 on Jun 19, 2012
This helps with healing of mouth sores and skin sores. It seems like a general immune system booster too. When my mother first recommended lysine to me, I was very doubtful, but she's right. This has an effect of making things heal up faster. This dose is higher than another brand I was buying, so I'm quite pleased that now it only takes 1 pill for double the strength. It's also quite affordable.
1,000 a day keeps body together

This is a second review for L-lysine, with one comment that all L-lysine should be the same if natural and not cooked up (as in DL-lysine) in the lab. Many benefits for those with connective tissue disorders. Taken with vitamin C 1,000 mg each per day--try it, see if it is a benefit to you.
