NOW L-Lysine 500mg 250caps
Helps to reduce the recurrence of herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection (e.g. cold sores). Helps in collagen formation. An essential amino acid for the maintenance of good health. L-Lysine is the best-selling amino acid product in Canada and this represents NOW’s most popular potency and dosage form of L-Lysine.
L-Lysine is an essential amino acid for human growth and development. Because this protein building-block cannot be produced by the body, it must be obtained from food or supplements. The best food sources of Lysine are lean meats, fish, potatoes and milk. Lysine helps ensure the adequate absorption of calcium and the formation of collagen for bone, cartilage and connective tissue. It also aids in the production of antibodies, believed to be the source of its virus fighting abilities. L-Lysine also maintains nitrogen balance in the body. Lysine levels may be low in vegetarians and low-fat dieters and additional Lysine can benefit those with herpes simplex virus. Without enough Lysine or any other of the eight essential amino acids, the body cannot build protein to sustain muscle tissue.
