Lysine is an essential amino acid, meaning that it is vital to human health but is not created within the body. Due to the body's inability to produce Lysine, it must be obtained from either food, supplements, or both. In the body, Lysine is used to produce acetyl-CoA, an important molecule used in energy production. Lysine also helps the body absorb and conserve calcium and is integral in muscle turnover and growth.

How Does L-Lysine Work?
L-Lysine converts into nitric oxide, which is necessary to improve blood flow through vasodilation. Lysine contains a mechanic that may slow the replication process of certain viruses. This mechanic works by starving viruses of arginine. L-Lysine also promotes the creation of collagen, which is integral in tissue function and healing wounds. The amino acid may also reduce stress and reduce symptoms of anxiety by decreasing cortisol production.
