L-Lysine Benefits

Lysine is an amino acid found in muscle tissue, it is an essential amino acid and is important for many functions in the body, and may have an inhibitory effect on some viruses, such as Herpes and related viruses.

Lysine promotes bone growth & collagen Production, and is responsible for calcium absorption in the intestinal tract. Vitamins, especially B-6 and Vitamin C, are required for proper metabolism and conversion (with Methionine) into Carnitine. Although required by the body, as an essential amino acid it cannot be manufactured within the body, and must be obtained by consuming foods with Lysine, or through supplementation.

Many diets, including strict vegetarian, are low in Lysine. A proper ratio of 2 to 1 in relationship to Arginine levels is necessary for proper biochemical balance. Some of the foods high in Lysine are beef, cottage cheese, chicken, tuna, turkey, and yogurt. There are small amounts in legumes and in some vegetables, such as potatoes.

Some foods high in Arginine are nuts, seeds, soy protein, chocolate, carob, and coconut. Those consuming large amounts of these foods and small amounts of Lysine-rich foods may have a Lysine/Arginine imbalance. Lysine supplementation will help to correct this imbalance. Since Arginine stimulates the activity of the Herpes virus, those with Herpes should restrict their consumption of these foods.

L-Lysine is just one of the supplements in our proprietary blend amino acid formula, for full information visit the link below...
