Viral infections are one of commonest types of infections around. Often spread through direct contact, coughing and sneezing, it is almost impossible to know you have a viral infection until symptoms show up.

Common viral infections

Includes:

  • Chicken Pox
  • Hand, foot and mouth disease
  • Colds and flu
  • Warts
  • Herpes

The severity of the infection varies from person to person but most will tell you that viral infections can be debilitating.

What can be done?

Often most viral infections require nothing more than supportive care and plenty of rest to settle. But this doesn’t mean that the symptoms are particularly comfortable during the worst part of the infection.

This is where anti-viral supplements containing Lysine can help boost your immunity to help ward off these infections.

When taken together with other symptomatic medications, Lysine can be part of a holistic approach to viral illnesses.

Of course it is important to note that other medication may be necessary to help with symptoms. For example viral infections with high fever would still benefit from paracetamol and Herpes infections would still respond well to anti-viral medication in the form of tablets.
