Lysine is an amino acid found in the protein of foods such as beans, cheese, yogurt, meat, milk, brewer’s yeast, wheat germ, and other animal proteins. Proteins derived from grains such as wheat and corn tend to be low in lysine content. The bioavailability of lysine is reduced with food preparation methods, such as heating foods in the presence of a reducing sugar (ie, fructose or glucose); heating foods in the presence of sucrose or yeast; and cooking in the absence of moisture at high temperatures. The average 70 kg human requires 800 to 3,000 mg of lysine daily.
Lysine has been studied for the prevention and treatment of herpes infections and cold sores (caused by the virus herpes simplex labialis). It is known to prevent the herpes virus from growing. It also increases the intestinal absorption of calcium and eliminates its excretion by the kidney, suggesting that it might be helpful in osteoporosis.

On the second day, if the virus is being contained, take 1 level teaspoon three times in the day. Steadily reduce daily dosage as improvement of fever blister occurs. A quarter teaspoon can be taken per day as a maintenance dose.
