Re: L-lysine and ms
L-Lysine is used primarily to prevent viral infections which can be caused by lower immune systems. Patients who take things like Valtrex or use Acycolvir usually do well with L Lysine supplements. Its not going to treat or help MS; however it may help with prevention of stress related incidences.
I have taken L lysine for more than 5 years , 500 mgs a day- to prevent cold sores, which I often get under stress. As stressful as my life is- I have not had a cold sore in more than 5 years...it seems to help.
