Nutritional Supplement Features:
- Lysine is an essential amino acid. Like all amino acids it functions as a building block for proteins. Proteins are essential for the formation of cells and are also involved in the biochemical structure of hormones, enzymes, neurotransmitters and antibodies.
- Lysine is abundant in animal based foodstuffs such as red meat but found in much lower quantities in most vegetables. Hence, low dietary intakes are frequently seen in vegetarians.
- Studies suggest that lysine may be helpful in controlling herpes simplex-related infections, which is the virus that causes cold sores.
- Biochemist and Nobel laureate, Linus Pauling, believed that a combination of vitamin C and the amino acid lysine may help to maintain a healthy heart and arteries.
