L-Lysine is an essential amino acid that is involved in the creation of energy in the body.*
L-Lysine is one of nine essential amino acids and cannot be produced by the body, therefore it is necessary to obtain it through nutrition. Responsible for the growth and repair of tissues, L-Lysine is an important component in the formation of collagen, which cushions joints and connective tissues.* L-Lysine also plays a role in the production of hormones and enzymes in the body, and may help the body absorb calcium.* In addition, L-Lysine is involved in the production of creatine, which converts fatty acids into energy.
Food sources of L-Lysine include meat, fish, and dairy products. Individuals with dietary restrictions may have trouble getting enough L-Lysine into their diets through nutrition, making supplementation important.
