Food for special medical purposes (balanced diet).
As a part of the dietary management for patients with acute herpes simplex labialis, this product provides the necessary extra amount of L-lysine + Zink. Only three days of taking LyZink as directed the L-lysin+zinc stores should be replenished.

The recommended intake: take 3+4=7 Capsules (=2,8mg L-lysin) in one day as first signs appear.

Virus thrive when there is a good supply of L-arginin available. The amino acid L-lysin helps keep a viral population in check. The amino acids levels of L-lysine and L-arginin should be in balance. If for some reason – i.e., stress, or an oncoming cold- the L-lysin levels in the body sink proportionally to its antagonist L-arginin – the virus can thrive and multiply. Visible signs may be cold sores. Hence it may prove beneficial to raise the L-lysin levels in the body as to keep the viral multiplication in check.

Zinc contributes to a normal function of the immune system and thus helps the body to defend itself against viruses.
