L-lysine is an essential amino acid that is important for many biological functions, such as immunity, energy production and muscle growth. Since it is naturally abundant in high protein foods such as meat, eggs, beans and legumes, those most likely to suffer from deficiency are vegetarians or vegans who consume a diet low in legumes and high in grain-based foods. One of the most common uses for supplemental L-lysine is for preventing cold sores caused by the Herpes Simplex virus. It does this in three different ways: by preventing infection with the virus, reducing the risk of developing cold sores in those with the virus and speeding up the recovery after cold sores develop.
