L-Lysine as amino acid that has been shown to help with virus, arterial sclerosis, and some cancers.  An Essential Amino Acid.

Provides 500 Mg In Each Caplet.  Amino Acids Are Vital To The Formation Of Protein.  L-Lysine is an essential amino acid, which means that it cannot be manufactured by the body. It must be obtained through the diet or by supplementation. L-Lysine is one of the most well known amino acids and is an essential component of proteins.

Dr. Linus Pauling, two time unshared Nobel Prize recipient, discovered that a sticky type of cholesterol  Lp(a)  was a main contributor to arteriosclerosis which is a build up of plaque in the arteries.  This is a leading cause of cardiovascular disease and heart attacks.  As the artery wall is damaged by mechanic stress, free radical damage and or Vitamin C deficiency the tiny strands of collagen separate and expose little fragments of Lysine waving around like flags.  The Lp(a) has an affinity for the Lysine so attaches to the Lysine fragments and so starts the plaque build up. Dr. Pauling posed that if you were to take extra Lysine  it would act as an Lp(a) inhibitor and the plaque would be less likely to build up in the artery walls.  It could possibly even reverse cardiovascular disease.  A dose of at least 3,000 mg per day is recommended.


Dr. Pauling and Dr. Rath found that the enzyme that our bodies use for cells to grow, that is degrading the surrounding connective tissue to make room for cell growth, is the same enzyme that CANCER uses to grow and metastasis.  Dr. Rath refers to the enzyme as a little Pack Man eating tissue.  They found that Lysine plugs the mouth of the Pack Man thereby contributing to limiting the growth of the CANCER cells. Now there are other nutrients involved but Lysine is a huge contributor.  Again dose would be at least 3,000 mg. per day.

VIRUSES  There is many studies that lead one to believe that Lysine helps to ward off and shorten the life span of some viruses especially herpes.  It is understood that arginine in some way contributes to viral replication and Lysine is a arginine antagonist.  So when coming down with a virus reduce arginine rich foods such as white and brown rice, whole wheat, oats, buckwheat, amaranth, most nuts, especially peanut butter and almonds.  Most legumes should be avoided as well as chocolate.  Instead ramp up on foods with Lysine such as grass fed animal products, cultured dairy, aged cheeses, fruits and vegetables.
