Lysine is an essential amino acid and is a basic building block of all protein. Lysine is required for growth and bone development in children, calcium
absorption, nitrogen balance and
maintaining lean body mass. Lysine is needed to produce antibodies,
hormones, enzymes, collagen formation as well as repair of tissue.
L-Lysine & Immunity/Herpes Infection: L-lysine can be used to treat mouth and genital lesions caused by herpes simplex virus as well as shingles caused by herpes zoster viruses. Taking lysine supplements can speed recovery time and reduce the chance of recurrent breakouts of the herpes infection.
L-Lysine & Womens/Menopause Health: L-lysine may help prevent bone loss associated with osteoporosis, following menopause. Since L-lysine helps improve the absorption of calcium from the digestive tract and prevent loss of calcium in the urine, it may be helpful for osteoporosis. In addition, test tube studies suggest that L-lysine in combination with L-arginine (another amino acid) increases the activity of bone-building cells and enhances production of collagen.
