L-Lysine is a dietary supplement formulated to promote immune health, support protein synthesis, and support antioxidant activity. L-Lysine is available in capsules from Natura-Genics®.
L-lysine is an essential amino acid, which means the body does not naturally produce it. Instead, it must be obtained through diet or supplementation.
Benefits of L-Lysine
Individuals who are looking to give their immune system some support may benefit from including l-lysine in their nutritional intake. L-lysine is believed to help the body produce infection-fighting antibodies, enzymes, hormones, and body tissues. Some studies have suggested that l-lysine may be effective in relieving cold sores by stopping the reproduction of the virus that causes them. Supplementation may promote protection against recurring cold sores.
• Supports Protein Synthesis
Amino acids are the building blocks for proteins. Cells are continuously making proteins through the process of protein synthesis. To make a new protein, ribosomes match genetic coding with a specific amino acid such as l-lysine. Amino acids make up proteins that help the body break down food, grow, and repair body tissue, among many other bodily functions.
Antioxidants help protect the body against oxidative stress caused by free radicals. A balance between free radicals and antioxidants is crucial for overall well-being. Alkaline amino acids, including l-lysine, have been reported to have strong antioxidant activity.
