Lysine is an essential amino acid that plays important roles in building muscle, production of hormones, and antibody formation. It has also been found that lysine supplementation may lower the severity and frequency of outbreaks in cases of herpes.
It is thought that because EBV is a strain of the herpes virus that it has similar benefits.
Amino acid for skin health, energy production, and immune function*
- essential amino acid for healthy protein synthesis*
- supports healthy immune function*
- excellent l-lysine source for vegetarians who might not get enough dietary lysine
L-lysine, an essential amino acid, cannot be synthesized in the body. Vegetarians can be deficient in lysine because, while meat, poultry, and milk are rich sources of lysine, proteins in grains and cereals are typically low in lysine. Of the many biological functions requiring lysine, some notable applications include synthesis of connective tissues such as bone, skin, collagen, and elastin; synthesis of carnitine and the resultant conversion of fatty acids to energy; support for healthy growth and development in children; and maintenance of a healthy immune function.
