BLACKMORES Lyp-Sine 30 Tablets.is a therapeutic dose of the amino acid lysine, which reduces the number of outbreaks of cold sores, relieves symptoms and reduces healing time of lesions.
It can reduce the severity of the outbreak, and decrease the severity of symptoms such as itching, burning, and pain. A cold sore develops when the herpes simplex virus is active and replicating itself. The virus uses large amounts of the amino acid arginine for this replication process. The amino acid lysine competes with arginine for absorption into cells and tissues.
Increasing lysine intake limits the amount of arginine available for the virus to use to replicate itself. Including foods in the diet that have high lysine content, such as vegetables, legumes, fish, sprouts and dairy products, helps to reduce the severity of cold sore outbreaks. Foods which have a high arginine content are best avoided during an outbreak of cold sores. These include chocolate, nuts, and oats, and carob, coconut and soya beans. Healing time of lesions is reduced when taking lysine, zinc and vitamin C. Both zinc and vitamin C are involved in the production of collagen. Collagen is the connective tissue that is found in the skin. Promoting collagen production assists with the normal healing of skin lesions.
