Is there any scientific data to support lysine or red marine algae supplementation or a diet high in lysine for genital hsv-1? Are there any other sorts of diets or supplements known to aid in the control and treatment of it?
red marine algae never panned out outside of the test tube. It's been awhile since I looked it up but I know early studies looked promising but then when they did animal testing, it showed no effect.
Lysine doesn't really help either. most of us already get more than enough of it in our diets to begin with.
genital hsv1 doesn't shed often and doesn't reoccur often in general. really no reason to change anything in your life unless it's for your overall good like eating less meat and eating more grains and veggies.
