What is L-Lysine?
Lysine is one of nine essential amino acids. The body needs L-Lysine for proper growth. Because it is so important for growth, children need 3-4 times more L-Lysine than adults. It is a building block for proteins and is important for production of certain enzymes, hormones, antibodies, and collagen. L- Lysine is involved in the absorption of Calcium; thus, it is important to the health of bones and teeth. L-Lysine, along with Methionine furnishes the raw materials for the synthesis of Carnitine, which promotes fatty acid synthesis on a cellular level.
