Lysine - or L-Lysine is considered an "essential" amino acid. Our bodies cannot synthesize it, so we must get it from certain foods we eat or from a supplement.

Lysine is an important building block for all proteins in our body. It works in combination wiith other amino acids to build lean body mass and promote normal growth.

Lysine has positive effects on serotonin receptors in our intestinal tract and helps to reduce anxiety and stress.

Lysine may also be able to help people with schizophrenia, a mental disorder that disrupts an individual's perception of the outside world, often resulting in an inability to understand reality.

Studies show that Lysine may help in the treatment of cancer by causing cancer cells to destroy themselves.

There are multiple studies that show the benefits of Lysine for moderation of high blood pressure and the incidence of stroke.

Lysine also aids to the formation and maintanance of skin collagen and the body's absorbtion of calcium. It supports immune system function and a healthy cardiovascular system.

Lysine may improveheart health by supporting the production of another amino acid called carnitine, which in turn helps reduce cholesterol level by converting fatty acids into energy. This helps protect the body from clogged arteries providing a major improvement to the health of the heart.

Lysine may help prevent HSV-1 from replicatingand may reduce the duration of a cold sore by blocking another amino acid called arginine, which HSV-1 needs to multiply.

Lysine is very important for athletes since amino acids are known to enhance performance by increasing hormone secretions, modifying fuel during activity, and preventing mental fatigue and unwanted effets of overtraining. After workout the body goes into a catabolic state, but lysine can reverse this state and convert it into an anabolic state, where there is a tissue growth, recovery, and rebuilding of muscles.

Lysine may reduce complications from diabetes. Certain compounds in the body called

advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are created when protein or fat combine with sugar in the blood. When in excess, they exacerbate cell aging and deterioration, and people with diabetes have a higher concentration of AGEs. Lysine may help reduce the formation of AGEs, thereby reducing the risk of diabetes complications. Lysine can also lower fasting blood glucose levels and reduce inflammation of the pancreas, both of which help people with diabetes manage blood sugar levels.

Lysine supports gut function. The anti-inflammatory properties of lysine are very helpful in regulating the digestive system and reducing the effects of leaky gut, characterized by an increased intestinal permeability. Leaky Gut is a digestive condition in which bacteria and food particles "leak" through the intestinal wall. This causes food sensitivities, low energy, joint pain, autoimmune diseases, and thyroid disease. L-lysine has specific anti-inflammatory effects on the lining of the stomach and intestines and can ease the inflammation from leaky gut and other conditions such as IBS.

In summary, health benefits L-Lysine has been recognized for include but not limited to:

· improve recovery of cold sores

· lower blood pressure

· preventing the symptoms of lysine deficiency

· optimize the body’s absorption of calcium reducing osteoporosis

· increase absorption of iron for blood support

· improve absorption of zinc for immunity and wound healing

· promoting collagen growth

· improve production of enzymes, antibodies, and hormones

· improve the immune system

· reduce anxiety

· reduce recovery from intense workouts

· show promise aid in cancer reduction

· may improve eye health
