Foods That Prevent Cold Sores -
and How They Stop a Cold Sore Fast!
by Denny Bodoh
Foods that prevent cold sores are
determined based on how high their lysine
content and/or how low their arginine content.
Lysine and arginine are two essential amino acids found in food. There are many
different amino acids but these two seem to have a special effect on cold
This is how it works.
The normally latent herpes virus decides to move to the surface to
reproduce. The tiny, sub-microscopic virus enters a nerve cell on your lip
or nose. It then takes control of the cell and forces the cell to create
copies. (Read more about
Causes Cold Sores.)
One major building block for creating the new
virus is arginine. Arginine, and many other amino acids, are normally stored
in special locations within each cell called "receptors".
Lysine also likes to use the same receptors as arginine. There is always a
bit of competition going on between the two.
They are both important to your
good health so you want some of both in the cell. However, scientists have
found the higher lysine to arginine content, the less likely the cell can be
used for herpes virus replication.
That is why increasing your lysine intake can help prevent cold sores from
Most foods, especially meats, contain both lysine and arginine. Foods that
prevent cold sores will contain much higher amounts of lysine than arginine.
These are judged by what is known as a "ratio" between lysine and
If there is an equal amount of both, the ratio would be 1 to 1. If there is
twice as much lysine to arginine, then the ratio would be 2 to 1. The ratio
in cheddar cheese, for example, is 2.2 to 1.
Here is a suggested list of high lysine ratio foods that prevent cold sores:
Many folks simply take a daily dose of lysine in capsule form,
which greatly adds balance to their lysine and arginine intake.

lips, mouth, or nose that are caused by a virus.
Cold Sores - emedicinehealth.com
Cold sores, sometimes
called fever blisters, are groups of small blisters on the lip and
around the mouth. The skin around the blisters is often red,
