L-Lysine 1000 mg Tablets is part of the premium amino acid range. It is an essential amino acid found in the muscle tissue and is also a supplement that is popular with people for seasonal support.  Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are needed in several internal functions of the body. They are classified as "essential" or "non-essential", with essential amino acids meaning they cannot be manufactured by the body and must be supplied in the diet to maintain good all-round health. A suboptimal intake of the essential amino acids increases the body's need for the non-essential amino acids either through diet or supplementation. Foods that increase amino acid intake are meat, beans, cheese and eggs.

Studies show lysine supplementation to speed recovery from, and prevent recurrences of, herpes infections. Benefits appear to be primarily due to the ability of lysine to antagonise arginine, which otherwise promotes herpes growth, but lysine may also have direct anti-viral properties. Several studies show accelerated recovery from herpes simplex infections. It appears that the best preventative results may be obtained when lysine is combined with vitamin C, zinc, and immune enhancing herbs, together with a diet that promotes an increase in lysine to arginine ratio. Good sources of lysine in food include fish, chicken, beef, lamb, milk, cheese, beans, eggs, and potatoes whilst foods such as nuts, linseeds, mackerel, and buckwheat should be avoided.

Lysine deficiency may be a factor in the loss of calcium from bones. Preliminary studies indicate that lysine deficiency is associated with excretion of calcium in the urine. Additional lysine may therefore be of value in those at risk of osteoporosis such as menopausal women and the elderly.  Lysine is a precursor of carnitine, a potent cardiovascular tonic and has also been shown to bond to heavy metals aiding their removal.

L-Lysine is an essential amino acid and eating a healthy and balanced diet should help achieve good levels of the amino acids we need. However, taking a supplement may be a convenient way to achieve and maintain our intake of L-Lysine.
