Source Naturals- L-Lysine- 1000mg - 50 Tablets
l-Lysine is an essential amino acid which acts as a precursor for several other amino acids, including l-citrulline (needed in the body for normal protein metabolism) and l-carnitine (needed for fat metabolism). l-Lysine is crucial for the formation of collagen, a major part of the body’s connective tissues. l-Lysine also contributes to energy production when converted to acetyl coenzyme A, one of the principal fuels for the Krebs cycle.
L-Lysine is one of the nine amino acids that are called “essential” because they cannot be made in the body. You typically get them from either food or from supplements. L-Lysine is crucial for the formation of collagen and all other proteins. Extra lysine can be used for energy production when converted to acetyl coenzyme A. L-Lysine supports the synthesis of collagen for healthy bones, skin, and other tissues. Other than nutritional supplements, you can also find it in meat, poultry, cheese, eggs, soybeans, spirulina, legumes, and dairy products. L-Lysine is a favorite for those seeking healthy, vibrant skin and it is of great value to vegans and vegetarians.
