What is L-lysine?
L-lysine is a building block for protein. It’s an essential amino acid that plays a key role in the creation of body proteins.† Since the body can’t produce its own L-lysine, it relies on food and supplement sources.
Who should take L-lysine?
Anyone looking to support the process of creating protein molecules may want to supplement their L-lysine intake. L-lysine is naturally found in animal-based foods, such as meat and dairy, but it can also be found in smaller amounts in plant-based foods, like legumes.
What is L-lysine good for?
L-lysine supports the synthesis of proteins.† Protein creation is, of course, important to muscle maintenance and growth. But proteins are also essential to nearly every cell in your body. Think of it like a strength-training circuit for your cells.
