Cold sores are the result of infection with the highly contagious herpes simplex virus. It is usually contracted in childhood through skin contact and then lies dormant until something triggers it. Individual triggers vary but can include a weak immune system due to infection, hormonal changes, exposure to sun, wind or cold, food allergies or stress. Herpes and cold sore supplements that help the body combat stress taken along with antiviral supplements can help reduce the severity and frequency of outbreaks. Vitamin B complex is useful for fighting stress and supports healthy nervous and immune system functioning. Vitamin C also supports healthy immune system function and when taken at the first signs of an outbreak can help prevent blisters from forming.+ Read more >
Mushroom extract has strong immune-boosting properties and Reishi mushroom extract has shown promising evidence that it helps to inhibit the herpes simplex virus. Dietary help for treating and preventing herpes and cold sore outbreaks includes ensuring the proper balance between essential amino acids arginine and lysine. The herpes simplex virus uses arginine to replicate, so this amino acid should be reduced in the diet. Lysine, on the other hand, is thought to help prevent outbreaks of the herpes simplex virus. Lysine helps the body make protein which is used to produce antibodies that fight infection. Because of this it is important to use herpes and cold sore supplements that increase the ratio of lysine to arginine to help fight recurrent outbreaks. Sometimes no matter how much support we give our bodies through the use of herpes and cold sore supplements, an outbreak of cold sores is triggered anyway. When this happens, there are natural herpes and cold sore supplements that can help soothe and relieve the discomfort of the cold sores. Tea tree oil is nature’s antiseptic and when applied topically with a q-tip can help to reduce the infection. Ointment containing lysine helps to shorten the outbreak and heal the sores faster. Lemon Balm also has antiviral properties and has been shown in studies to reduce healing time of cold sores when applied topically in a cream. Don’t let cold sore outbreaks be a source of embarrassment and discomfort. Prevent recurrent outbreaks by avoiding triggers and using herpes and cold sore supplements from Body Energy Club’s online vitamin and supplement store regularly. Before starting any new supplements it is important to check with your doctor to make sure that they are right for you, especially if you have a medical condition or are taking prescription medications.+ Read less >
