L-lysine is one of the nine essential amino acids that cannot be made in the body. Essential amino acids must be supplied by the diet or through supplementation. Lysine works with other essential amino acids to maintain growth, lean body mass, and nitrogen stores in the body. Lysine is incorporated into many body proteins that are used for a variety of purposes, including enzyme production, collagen formation, and tissue repair. Lysine may aid in absorption of calcium from the digestive tract and loss of calcium in the urine.
In addition, studies suggest that L-lysine in combination with the amino acid L-arginine may enhance production of collagen and support tissue healing.*
Suggested Use: Take 1 to 6 capsules daily or as directed by your healthcare professional.
Children and pregnant or lactating women should consult their healthcare practitioner prior to use. Lysine may affect the way the body absorbs and processes calcium. Consult with your healthcare professional prior to use if you are taking high doses of supplemental calcium.
