The most promising application of ʟ‑lysine is its use in managing and preventing painful and unsightly herpes sores caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). ʟ‑Lysine supplementation works by tilting the balance between lysine and arginine heavily in favor of lysine. This contains herpes outbreaks because the herpes virus depends on the presence of arginine for its replication.
Lysine has also been shown to be useful in the prevention of atherosclerosis, a hardening of artery walls caused by deposits of lipoproteins (fats).
