I despise canker sores and for whatever reason I used to be somewhat prone to getting them. I noticed they would plague me more often when I traveled and when I ate pineapple, lots of chocolate or spicy foods. Stress and lack of sleep also might have been contributing factors. Since I am not about to give up my love affair with chocolate or citrus fruit (I know what is good for me), I decided to add a 500 mg L-Lysine tablet to my daily multi-vitamin regimen. Now I am rarely afflicted with these bothersome and annoying sores.
In case you were wondering, both Costco and Trader Joe’s sell Lysine for a decent price.
