Cold Sores

Cold Sores


Q: I always get cold sores in the winter months. Is there anything natural I can take to help them heal faster?

A: Yes, the amino acid L-LYSINE is an effective treatment for cold sores as it antagonizes the growth of the virus, thus limiting its spread. Lysine can be taken on its own or taken in a blend such as SUPER LYSINE + ®, which includes Echinacea, vitamin C, and garlic. Lysine-containing preparations are most effective when taken at the very first sign of a cold sore.
