I have recently heard that l-lysine is only effective against the herpes virus because it reduces the amount of l-arginine that the herpes virus needs in order to replicate.
Supposedly, there is no evidence that l-lysine is a general immune booster. I know that many people give it as a supplement and it is well tolerated by cats so there is no harm in giving it. If anyone knows of a study that shows l-lysine is a general immune booster, please give me the link, I would be very interested in reading about it.
