L-Lysine is an essential (free form) amino acid which acts to support a healthy immune system. As our body cannot create its own L-Lysine, one needs to either eat foods rich in L-Lysine or take L-Lysine dietary supplements if they wish to enhance systemic L-Lysine levels. Our L-Lysine dietary supplement works to increase the Lysine to Arginine ratio.
L-Lysine is a naturally occurring substance called an amino acid. Amino acids are the building blocks of all proteins. Proteins in our body are used to make the molecular array that runs our metabolic processes. Our bodies have tremendous control over amino acids because we are so dependent on them. We are constantly making and destroying amino acids and connecting them to one another to maintain the exquisite balance of our system.
Please consult your medical practitioner prior to using any medications or supplements should you be under their care. Lysine has little known side-effects as it is an amino acid that the human body needs.
Lysine should not be taken with milk or any foods that contain milk as it neutralizes the effects of Lysine.
Do not take Lysine if you are using any of the following anti-biotics: Gentamicin, Tobramycin, Amikacin, Kanamycin or Netilmicin.
We suggest taking Lysine as a dietary supplement for maximum effectiveness. For daily maintenance:
