An amino acid to support immune function, skin and collagen health, and energy production.*
L-lysine is an essential amino acid that is required in the diet and found in the highest amount in animal proteins. Vegans can be at risk for deficiency and can benefit from supplementation.*
Lysine is an amino acid that is essential for protein synthesis. Because it isn't synthesized in the body, it must be obtained in the diet. Since the primary dietary sources for lysine are meat, poultry, and milk, many individuals, especially vegetarians, can be deficient. And the proteins in refined grains and cereals are typically low in lysine. Lysine has many biological functions, including the synthesis of connective tissues such as bone, skin, collagen, and elastin; the synthesis of carnitine and the resultant conversion of fatty acids to energy; support for healthy growth and development in children; and maintenance of healthy immune function.*
