L-Lysine supports a healthy immune system and is one of the nine essential amino acids that the body needs to manufacture proteins.
Although more than 300 different amino acids exist in nature, only 20 serve as building blocks for proteins, and lysine is one of them. However, even though lysine is an essential amino acid, meaning it is necessary for human health, but the body cannot make it. You have to get lysine from food or supplements.
Lysine is important for proper growth and it plays an essential role in the production of carnitine. Carnitine is a nutrient responsible for converting fatty acids into energy and helping lower cholesterol. Lysine also appears to help the body absorb calcium, and it plays an important role in the formation of collagen, a substance important for bones and connective tissues including skin, tendons, and cartilage.
