L-Lysine is an essential amino acid, which means the body can't make its own supply. It plays a part in the formation of collagen, a substance important for bones and connective tissues including skin, tendon, and cartilage. Lysine is necessary for tissue repair and growth, and for producing antibodies, enzymes, and hormones.
It’s important for normal growth and muscle turnover and used to form carnitine, a substance found in most cells of your body. What’s more, lysine helps transport fats across your cells to be burned for energy.
L-lysine is the form of lysine your body can utilize. It’s naturally found in food and is the type used in supplements.
Here are some health benefits of lysine:
- May reduce anxiety by blocking stress response receptors
- May improve calcium absorption and retention
- Can promote wound healing by helping create collagen
- It is often taken by athletes to aid with recovery.
