Lysine IV Therapy
Lysine is an essential amino acid and a key building block of muscle and collagen. The human body can’t make Lysine on it’s own - it must be consumed regularly in the form of food or supplements.
What are all the benefits of IV Lysine?
Lysine IV Therapy is used to support a variety of health concerns!
- Helps reduce stress and cortisol levels
- Speeds wound healing
- Improves calcium absorption
- May decrease herpes outbreaks and shorten flares
- May lessen high blood pressure
Lysine IV Therapy for Anxiety & Stress
Lysine can be supportive for reducing anxiety and stress. Supplemental lysine has been shown in studies to possibly reduce cortisol levels and self-reported anxiety scores.
Lysine for Collagen Building & Wound Healing
Lysine may improve wound healing by promoting the growth of collagen to build healthy skin and tissue. It may also increase the formation of new blood vessels.
Lysine for Calcium Absorption
Lysine may help your body retain calcium, and move it to where the body needs it. Studies have shown lysine reduces the calcium levels of urine, meaning less calcium is being lost.
Lysine IV Therapy for Cold Sores / Herpes Simplex Virus
Lysine is commonly used in a variety of preparations to prevent and suppress cold sore outbreaks. It is thought to prevent viral replication of HSV-1 by suppressing arginine, another amino acid.
Lysine IV Therapy for High Blood Pressure
Lysine may be supportive for lowering blood pressure. Supplemental lysine has been shown in a study to reduce blood pressure in patients with high blood pressure.
