L-Lysine is Important for Many Reasons

Amino acids are what proteins are made of and our bodies can make all but eight of the amino acids necessary for human health. These eight are collectively referred to as essential amino acids because it is essential that we get them from diet or supplements.

Amino acids are necessary for normal growth and development and for the manufacture of protein-based enzymes, antibodies and hormones. Lysine is an essential amino acid used by the body to manufacture carnitine, another amino acid that is necessary for muscle and bone health because of the role it plays in the absorption of calcium and formation of collagen. It helps to convert fats into energy and may help lower LDL cholesterol thereby reducing the risk of heart disease.

Lysine is necessary for normal growth and development and promotes healthy skin via collagen formation. It may be useful for inflammation and pain, including migraines. Lysine has antiviral activity and may be useful for treating herpes simplex and human papilloma virus (HPV) infections.

Lysine supplementation is important for people with large wounds or burns because it is important for tissue repair. Also, very active athletes and body-builders as well as for people who do not eat animal protein can benefit from lysine supplementation

Deficiency of lysine have been linked to abnormal growth and development, chronic viral infections, formation of kidney stones, hypothyroid, reproductive disorders and asthma. People who consume a high sugar diet or excessive amounts of the amino acid arginine may be deficient in lysine.
