L-Lysine is an essential amino acid for human growth and development. Because this protein building-block cannot be produced by the body, it must be obtained from food or supplements. The best food sources of lysine are lean
meats, fish, potatoes and milk. Lysine helps ensure the adequate absorption of calciumand the formation of collagen for bone, cartilage and connective tissue. It also aids inthe production of antibodies, believed to be the source of its virus fighting abilities.L-Lysine also maintains nitrogen balance in the body. Lysine levels may be low in
vegetarians and low-fat dieters and additional lysine can benefit those with herpessimplex virus. Without enough lysine or any other of the eight essential amino acids,the body cannot build protein to sustain muscle tissue.
