Lysine is one of the essential amino acids, meaning you must get it in your food because you cannot make it in your body. It is found in large amounts in your muscles. Requirements are increased by stress.*

Lysine is important in the formation of collagen (the protein that forms the matrix of your bone, cartilage & connective tissue). The conversion of lysine to collagen is controlled by vitamin C.*

Research indicates lysine supplements enhance the intestinal absorption of calcium & reduce the excretion of calcium in the urine. Ingesting 400-1000 mg of lysine with your calcium supplement can help maintain bone health.*

Lysine can convert to carnitine & thus indirectly confer some of the benefits of carnitine. Lysine can break down into acetyl CoA, a critical nutrient in carbohydrate metabolism & the production of energy. Lysine can convert to the amino acid citrulline, which is needed for normal metabolism of protein. Healthy Lysine levels promote immune system function.*

Low lysine levels have been found in those with depression, chronic virus, asthma, low thyroid function, kidney disease, & Parkinson's. The exact significance is unclear. Some have improved with lysine usage.*
