Supplements & Herpes
Supplements Helpful with Herpes:

Lysine- Although the research to date is not entirely conclusive, lysine supplements have been used to help treat or prevent mouth and genital lesions caused by herpes. Taking lysine supplements or increasing lysine in your diet (from foods like fish, chicken, eggs, and potatoes) may speed recovery time and reduce the chance of recurrent breakouts of the herpes infection. If you have high cholesterol, heart disease, or high triglycerides (type of fatty material in the blood, generally measured when you have your cholesterol checked), it is best, at this point, not to use lysine because animal studies suggest that this supplement may raise cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

Zinc- Topical and oral preparations of zinc have shown benefit in relieving symptoms and preventing recurrences of oral herpes lesions.

Vitamin C- Both oral and topical delivery forms of vitamin C have been studied as a possible treatment for hsv-1.  Vitamin has been shown to increase healing rates.  In a study on patients with herpes labialis (hsv-1), supplementation with vitamin C mixed with citrus bioflavonoids for three days reduced vesiculation and disruption of the membrane (less crusting), as well as caused remission of symptoms in less time (2-4 days).  Other studies have included patients whom were treated with topical vitamin C over the duration of an outbreak. The topical application of vitamin C caused a decrease in virus replication as well as decrease in severity of symptoms.
