Sanjevani L-Lysine
100 Capsules

L-lysine is one of the nine essential amino acids that cannot be made in the body. Essential amino acids must be supplied by the diet or through supplementation. Lysine works with other essential amino acids to maintain growth, lean body mass, and nitrogen stores in the body. Lysine is incorporated into many body proteins that are used for a variety of purposes, including enzyme production, collagen formation, and tissue repair. Significant dietary sources of lysine include dairy, fish, beef, turkey, and chicken. Smaller amounts are found in legumes and some vegetables. Lysine intake may be inadequate in vegetarian or low protein diets. Although most people do not require lysine supplementation, some individuals can benefit from added amounts of up to several grams per day. No side effects have been reported at these levels of intake.†

Lysine may help improve absorption of calcium from the digestive tract and prevent loss of calcium in the urine. In addition, studies suggest that L-lysine in combination with the amino acid L-arginine may enhance production of collagen and support tissue healing.†
