Lysine is an amino acid that is used by the body in the synthesis of proteins.1 It is an essential amino acid meaning that the body cannot create it and it must be obtained either through diet or supplementation. Unfortunately, the average diet usually does not contain enough lysine and thus supplementation is necessary.
Extra information for the curious mind:
|Lysine and Performance||Amino acids are the building blocks for proteins in the human body. Since Lysine is an essential amino acid and cannot be produced by the body supplementing with it will increase the production of proteins in the body as more lysine is available for use. This may help maintain lean body mass and promote healthy growth and development2.|
|Lysine and Calcium||Consumption of lysine could help your gastrointestinal tract absorb calcium better and reduce how much calcium your body excretes. Supplementing with lysine and arginine (another amino acid) stimulates cells that are responsible for building new bone tissue3.|
|Lysine and Cholesterol||Lysine converts to carnitine in the liver which helps your body with fat burning. This fat burning ability of lysine in your diet may lead to a decrease in the levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol4.|
