L-Lysine Expand



L-Lysine is an essential amino acid, which is necessary for the production of all protein in the body including hormones, enzymes, and collagen, which is the structural protein forming all connective tissue such as skin, tendon, and bone. L-Lysine also plays a major role in calcium absorption. Some evidence suggests that L-Lysine supplementation may help to support a healthy immune system as well as proper cardiovascular function.

More details

L-Lysine is an essential amino acid, one of the eight that cannot be manufactured by the body. It must be obtained through the diet or by supplementation.

Benefits for health

Here is a list of the main health benefits of supplementing with L-lysine:

  • herpes: both oral herpes (or cold sores) and genital herpes are caused by the same virus called herpes simplex. L-Lysine acts as an antiviral and blocks the production of the virus. It can decrease the frequency of oral or genital herpes outbreaks. L-lysine may also help herpes sores heal more quickly. Supplementing with 500mg to 1 gram of lysine each day may limit recurrences, while taking L-lysine as soon as an outbreak begins may reduce the length of time your herpes sores last.
  • Anxiety: taking a L-Lysine supplement can reduce stress and anxiety. Therefore, using L-Lysine can be beneficial for your mental well-being.
  • Bone Health / osteoporosis: L-lysine helps the body to absorb the calcium (critical for strong bones). It can also prevent osteoporosis or weak bones by reducing bone loss.

How to use it?

Take 1 to 3 capsules per day, preferably during meals.

Safety / contraindications

L-Lysine in the diet is considered safe. However, excessive doses (several grams / days) may cause gallstones. It is recommended to avoid supplementing with L-lysine if you suffer from kidney or liver problems, or first talk to a doctor.

Pregnancy use

Not enough information is available regarding the use of L-Lysine while pregnant. You should seek medical advice before using it.
