May work well but hard to swallow
 July 31, 2012
"From what I have read, there are several good reasons to take this amino acid, but choose a brand that sells the suppliment in gel caps or capsules. This brand, in the larger dosage, chose to sell it in large tablets with square edges. This makes it harder to swallow than a smooth capsule."

Too Big To Swallow

Lysine 1000mg
 March 25, 2012
"I accidentally ordered the 1000mg tablets I usually get the 500mg. These tyabs work just fine but the size is very hard to swallow. Swallowing tablets is not a problem for me but these are just too big. Other than that they are great!"

Take out the B6 PLEASE!
 February 7, 2012
"I like to be able to take a few grams of lysine most every day according to Dr. Linus Pauling's cardiovascular therapy protocol (lysine+vitamin C as a way to bind lipoprotein a and heal the blood vessels). But taking 25 mg. of B6 with every tablet is too much. B complex vitamins need to be kept in proportion to be good for you. Wish they would go back to just plain lysine at this price/quantity. Would be a good buy. SIGH."

"Having used this for a long period, I have found that the current formulation is not as effective as when I used it before. Now I am using 4-5 at a time, when I have only had to use one or two, for the same results. Perhaps a poor grade of product."

"Lysine is one of several supplements I use as part of my exercise regimen. The Vitacost brand is "convenient" - I like having the option of buying a good product that has a quantity count above 100."
