Lysine is one of nine essential amino acids. The body needs L-Lysine for proper growth and tissue repair. Because it is so important for growth, children need 3-4 times more L-Lysine than adults. It is a building block for proteins and is important for production of certain enzymes, hormones, antibodies, and collagen. L- Lysine is involved in the absorption of Calcium; thus, it is important to the health of bones and teeth. L-Lysine, along with Methionine furnishes the raw materials for the synthesis of Carnitine, which promotes fatty acid synthesis on a cellular level.

There is substantial evidence that supports the claim that Lysine may be beneficial to those with herpes simplex virus (HSV). Researchers discovered that HSV needs Arginine to replicate; Lysine competes with Arginine for absorption. When Lysine is present, it inhibits the growth of HSV by wiping out Arginine. In a six-month trial of over fifty people, it was concluded that supplemental Lysine was far more effective than a placebo in preventing cold sores caused by HSV. Research is being conducted on Lysine to determine its potential benefits for a host of other disorders.

Our L-Lysine 500mg is available in 100 count vegetarian capsules.
