Reviews for L-Lysine

For Herpes Simplex, Suppression "One day after starting the l lysine, I have horribly swollen lymph nodes on my underarms. It's been 3 days and they are still painful and swollen. I did have smoothies each a.m with mango and yogurt which I read are high in lysine as well. I am stopping use due to this reaction."

For Herpes Simplex, Suppression "I have been using 1500mg, (500mg/3x a day) of L-Lysine for years with no ill affects. No Herpes Simplex breakouts either. I keep meticulous records of all my blood work and it has been nearly perfect."
