This necessary supplement is an essential amino acid, meaning the body does not produce it. L-lysine must be obtained through diet or supplementation and it is an essential component of all proteins.


I began taking L-lysine while on my initial 28 Day Cleanse, according to the Medical Medium book by Anthony William. This amino acid impairs the ability of the shingles virus cells to move and reproduce. Because I was targeting the shingles virus, which had attacked my sciatic nerves, this supplement was crucial to me.

I continue to take it.

L-lysine also lowers the Epstein Barr Virus load. By inhibiting and reducing the EBV viral load, this amino acid acts as an anti-inflammatory to the entire nervous system, especially the vagus and phrenic nerves, which get targeted by the virus’s neurotoxins.

L-lysine helps to support the immune system by developing antibodies. And its antiviral properties also protect against the herpes virus. L-lysine reduces anxiety, plays an integral part in protein biosynthesis and works with the amino acids glycine and proline to build collagen, improving skin, bones, muscles and connective tissue.

For those on a plant based diet, like me, lysine can be found in lima beans and potatoes. I consume a lot of potatoes, however, it’s good to know I can support my body’s healing by taking L-lysine!
