Now Foods L-Lysine 1000mg

Lysine is one of the essential amino acids that it is being used to manufacture other amino acids like the fat-burning L-carnitine. It is a vital component of all major proteins in the body including collagen, the main building block of connective tissues. L-lysine is also essential for energy production as it acts as precursor to acetyl coenzyme A, which fuels the krebb’s cycle.

  • L-lysine can be used for effective cholesterol management. This essential amino acid is a precursor to L-carnitine, another amino acid with fat-burning activities that takes place in the liver. Because of this, a diet high in L-lysine or use of L-lysine supplements may result in balanced levels of the good and bad cholesterol. Effective cholesterol management reduces the risk for a wide range of health problems including heart diseases, obesity, fatty liver, and hypercholesterolemia.
  • Lysine supports physical strength and athletic performance. L-lysine is a building block of protein, which is the major component of skeletal muscles. When you increase your Lysine intake, it will work together with other amino acid to support development of lean muscles and improved stamina. Additionally, it is also suggested to help with normal muscle repair and recovery after intense physical training and exercise.
  • Lysine is essential for bone growth and the maintenance of bone strength. It works by facilitating the absorption of calcium into the bones and reduce calcium excretion. In children, this amino acid is critical for proper growth and development. In adults, it may aid in maintaining bone strength to counteract age-related bone loss that occurs in osteoporosis.
  • Research found that L-lysine possesses anti-viral defences against herpes infections and shingles. Although not really found to cure these infections, this amino acid is thought to support the body’s natural responses to these specific infections leading to reduced outbreaks of herpes and shingles.

Now Foods L-lysine contains the free form of the essential amino acid Lysine. It serves as the precursor to L-carnitine, another amino acid with potent fat burning properties. L-lysine as a building block of protein, makes up most of the body’s protein based organs like the muscles, skin, hair, nails, and other connective tissues. While it is very critical for these organs and their functions, the body does not manufacture its own Lysine and it should be acquired from the diet. Dietary sources of L-lysine include red meat, egg, fish, cheese, pork, poultry, spinach, lentils, and soybeans. Increased need for l-lysine occurs with sports and bodybuilding, obesity and weight loss, high cholesterol levels, and age-related bone loss.  During these times, the diet may not be able to supply the body’s L-lysine requirements and may benefit from taking Lysine supplements.
