FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- A natural supplement for the prevention and treatment of cold sores.
- Suitable for pregnancy at the reduced dose of 1 tablet per day.
Blackmores Lyp-Sine combines a therapeutic dose of Lysine with vitamin C and zinc for optimal prevention and healing of cold sores.
Clinical studies show lysine supplementation to speed recovery from, and prevent recurrence of cold sores. The cold sore virus uses large amounts of the amino acid arginine to replicate itself. Lysine competes with arginine for absorption into cells and tissues. Increasing lysine limits the amount of arginine available fore the virus to use to replicate itself.
Vitamin C and zinc play a crucial role in the maintenance of the immune system. Both are also important in the healing of wounds and the synthesis of collagen for connective tissue in the skin.
Blackmores Lyp-Sine works best when taken within 48 hours of the onset of cold sore symptoms, such as tingling or burning.
Cold sore recurrences are common and can be triggered by stress, sun exposure, lowered immunity and menstruation.
