Lamberts® L-Lysine 1000mg provides a grade of lysine called USP which is the quality used in clinical nutrition products.
Lysine is an essential amino acid and is therefore one of the eight amino acids that our bodies cannot make, so we are completely reliant on our diets to provide sufficient lysine. It is used by the body in several ways and, particularly in the formation of collagen, the most abundant protein in the body. Throughs supporting the collagen formation it plays a role in protecting your skin against conditions such as acne and can even combat hair loss! Lysine is also needed to help your body absorb calcium and to support your immune system.
We require 2-3g a day of lysine and it is most abundant in animal-based foodstuffs such as meat. Vegetables and vegetable proteins are not particularly high in lysine, and so some experts believe that vegetarian and vegan diets may provide rather low levels of lysine, and a supplement may be beneficial.
