"First off, these pills are big, but if you have no problems with that, they are a super bargain. So long as they keep the price and the dosage the same, I'll be a returning customer. Thanks, Vitacost!"
"I have a friend that is a nurse and I mentioned getting canker sores whenever I was trying to "come down with something". She suggested L-lysine and I found it on Vitacoat, of course. I take it twice a day and have noticed fewer canker sores. My son also takes it twice a day and he gets fewer canker sores from his braces."
"I have used Vitacost L-Lysine for a while now and I team it up with Vitacost vitamin C and I am always the only one who doesn't get sick . I believe this is helping me because I can see the results. I get very nervous when I get low on these vitamins. My whole family takes Vitacost vitamins. They are the best.
"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."
"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!"
"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."
