Biochem/physiol Actions

L-lysine is an essential amino acid in animals and humans. L-Lysine is necessary for protein synthesis in the body and proper growth. L-lysine lowers the cholesterol level by producing carnitine. L-lysine aids in calcium, zinc and iron absorption. Athletes take L-lysine as a supplement for lean mass building and for proper muscle and bone health. L-lysine competes with arginine during viral replication and reduces herpes simplex virus infection. L-lysine supplementation reduces chronic anxiety in human. Lysine reduces viscosity of serum albumin solution for injections.
