L-Lysine is an essential amino acid, meaning it is essential to human health but cannot be manufactured by the body.
It is important for the absorption of calcium, the formation of collagen, and the production of bone tissue.
This product is high purity, well tolerated, and hypoallergenic.*
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Lysine is important for proper growth and it plays an essential role in the production of carnitine, a nutrient responsible for converting fatty acids into energy and helping to lower cholesterol. Lysine also appears to help 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, tendon, and cartilage.*
If there is too little lysine in the diet, kidney stones and other health related problems may develop, including fatigue, nausea, dizziness, loss of appetite, agitation, bloodshot eyes, slow growth, anemia, and reproductive disorders.
Lysine obtained from the diet is generally sufficient; however, vegetarians (especially those following a macrobiotic diet), athletes, and those whose diets are high in cereals and baked goods may be at risk for lysine deficiency.
