Health Benefits of L Lysine

Lysine is one of the eight essential amino acids, which means the body cannot produce it and must be obtained from the diet. L-Lysine is a specific form of lysine that is most commonly found in dietary supplements. As an amino acid, lysine is essential for building muscle protein and calcium absorption. It also assists in producing enzymes, antibodies and hormones.

Lysine is essential to the skeletal system since it aids in the production of collagen to form bones, cartilage, tendons, and connective tissue. It also helps the skin to maintain elasticity.

One of the biggest medicinal uses of L-lysine is in fighting herpes. It is able to interfere with the replication (reproduction) of herpes viruses that can cause genital herpes or cold sores. It is also effective against the herpes virus that causes Shingles. Because of its role in the skeletal system, Lysine is also used to fight osteoporosis by helping to absorb calcium and building bones.

Lysine also protects the immune system and increases production of antibodies. It can also aid persons recovering from surgery or sports related injuries. When the body is deficient in lysine, it can lead to kidney stones, loss of appetite, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, and other health concerns. It may also exacerbate asthma and prolong viral infections. 

L-Lysine is generally regarded as safe, but supplementing in excess doses may lead to gallstones.
