What is L-lysine?
L-lysine is an essential amino acid, meaning the body cannot synthesize it on its own but it must be obtained through diet (mainly from foods high in protein). L-lysine is required for many body functions that support skin, bones, collagen and elastin.* It’s also important for normal growth and development.*
L-lysine is converted in the body to acetyl CoA, which is a critical part of metabolizing carbohydrates for energy.* Lysine is also a precursor to carnitine, which helps transport fatty acids into the mitochondria where they can be used for energy or other functions.*
Lysine has an antagonistic relationship with L-arginine, making it useful in the reduction of arginine levels.*
