Review:
L-Lysine is an essential amino acid which the body is unable to synthesize. It is an important amino acid found mostly in foods of animal origin and therefore usually low in plant-based/vegetarian diets. Lysine is essential for the cross-linking of collagen. Collagen cross-linking is essential for the resiliency, elasticity and overall structural support of collagen. This is accomplished with the help of the enzyme lysyl oxidase, as well as vitamin C and the trace mineral copper. Collagen is the underlying structural material of all soft tissue in the body. This makes lysine important for the production of healthy blood vessels, skin, cartilage, tendons and other important structural components of the body. We also need lysine to make carnitine. Carnitine is essential for the transport and use of fat for energy by the body?s cells. Carnitine is an essential component of the carnitine ?shuttle? which is responsible for transporting fatty acids into the mitochondria where they will be oxidized to make energy (ATP). Our L-Lysine is the highest quality free form lysine available.
