L-Lysine (500mg) Overview
Body First’s L-Lysine is a pure form of the essential amino acid L-Lysine. L-Lysine plays a vital role in protein synthesis, tissue growth and repair. Since it cannot be manufactured within the body, it has to be ingested from dietary food or supplements. L-Lysine is typically taken for its ability to promote bone health, reduce the symptoms of cold sores & canker sores, support joint health and promote healthy skin, hair & nails. *
L-Lysine has been shown to reduce the symptoms of cold sore-related herpes and canker sores. It does this by inhibiting the herpes virus and is so effective that many over the counter herpes treatment creams contain L-Lysine as the main ingredient. L-Lysine is also necessary for collagen synthesis in joints and ensuring enough L-Lysine is present ensures strong, healthy joints, ligaments, tendons and bones. Although L-Lysine can be found naturally in eggs, red meats, fish, dairy and beans, research suggests that L-Lysine is most effective when taken in therapeutic doses, making supplementation necessary to achieve the full range of desired benefits.*
