Lysine is an essential amino acid necessary for growth and tissue repair, and serves a role in the normal production of antibodies, hormones, and enzymes. Lysine is also a precursor of L-carnitine, an amino acid derivative needed for the normal metabolism of fatty acids for energy production in the body.
Lysine is an essential amino acid necessary for growth, tissue repair, and the production of antibodies, hormones, and enzymes. It is most commonly used to prevent and help decrease the incidence of herpes simplex infection (fever blisters and cold sores). It also helps promote better concentration and allows fatty acids to be used more effectively for energy production.
Lysine is considered an essential amino acid, meaning it cannot be made by the body and, thus, must be obtained through the diet and/or supplementation. Failure to attain adequate amounts of this essential amino acid can result in a degradation of the body’s proteins, including muscle. Unlike fats and carbohydrates, the human body does not store excess amino acids for later use; therefore essential amino acids should be consumed every day for optimal health. Lysine is abundantly found in red meat such as beef and pork, as well as other dietary protein sources. Consuming adequate amounts of lysine may be difficult for individuals with certain dietary restrictions. Athletes and vegetarians may have a difficult time achieving proper lysine levels.
