L-Lysine Indication

Supplemental L-lysine has putative anti-herpes simplex virus activity. There is preliminary research suggesting that it may have some anti-osteoporotic activity.

L-Lysine Pharmacology

Insures the adequate absorption of calcium; helps form collagen ( which makes up bone cartilage & connective tissues); aids in the production of antibodies, hormones & enzymes. Recent studies have shown that Lysine may be effective against herpes by improving the balance of nutrients that reduce viral growth. A deficiency may result in tiredness, inability to concentrate, irritability, bloodshot eyes, retarded growth, hair loss, anemia & reproductive problems.

L-Lysine Absorption

absorbed from the lumen of the small intestine into the enterocytes by an active transport process

L-Lysine Patient Information

Pregnant women and nursing mothers should only consider using supplemental L-lysine if their diets are low in this amino acid. They should avoid supplemental L-lysine for other reasons. Proteins such as casein, which are high in L-lysine relative to L-arginine, are associated with elevated cholesterol levels. Those with hypercholesterolemia who are interested in taking supplemental L-lysine should be aware of this. Those with hepatic or renal failure should exercise caution in the use of supplemental L-lysine.
