L-Lysine is an essential amino acid and must be obtained from food or by supplementation. Vegetarians, and athletes who participate in frequent vigorous exercise, are at highest risk for a lysine deficiency. L-Lysine helps the body absorb and conserve calcium and it plays an important role in the formation of collagen, a substance important for bones and connective tissues including skin, tendons and cartilage. *

Description: L-Lysine is an essential amino acid and must be obtained from food or by supplementation. Vegetarians, and athletes who participate in frequent vigorous exercise, are at highest risk for a lysine deficiency [1]. L-Lysine helps the body absorb and conserve calcium and it plays an important role in the formation of collagen, a substance important for bones and connective tissues including skin, tendons and cartilage. As a building block for protein, amino acids like L-lysine are necessary for normal growth and development. In particular, L-lysine is needed by the body to manufacture carnitine, a substance that is used in the conversion of fatty acids into energy [1].

 

Uses:

Calcium deficiency contributes to age-related bone loss, and consequently, any preventive approach to osteoporosis should include dietary Ca adjustment [2]. Studies have shown that supplementing the diet with L-lysine can increase Ca absorption. L-lysine can both enhance intestinal Ca absorption and improve the renal conservation of the absorbed Ca, suggesting that lysine may be helpful in the maintenance of calcium levels for bone health [2].

 

For decades, it has been well-understood that L-lysine inhibits normal replication of the herpes simplex virus, and oral supplementation with this essential amino acid can shorten the course and duration of the disease [3]. Other studies have also suggested an application for L-lysine supplementation in mood balance and anxiety control [4].
