I get cold sores. During an outbreak they actually cover my lips.

I actually got them more often as a non-vegan. They happened on average about once a year.

But, around the same time I went vegan, someone told me about L-lysine supplements. I took one with my multi-vitamin every day, and if I felt that "sandpaper" feeling on my lips I would double up.

Then, earlier this year, I just stopped taking them because it had been so long since I had an outbreak. Last week, my lips bricked up with blisters.

L-lysine supplements are VERY affordable, and they really do help. Anyone prone to cold sores or and form of the herpes virus should really consider taking L-lysine alongside your regular vitamin.

Best part, when you DO get an outbreak, it's not nearly as bad as it could be.
