- Product Details
L-Lysine is an essential amino acid necessary for growth, development, tissue maintenance and repair. (Essential amino acids cannot be made in the body and must be supplied by the diet or supplements.)
Who is likely to be deficient?
Most people, including vegans (vegetarians who also avoid dairy and eggs), consume adequate amounts of lysine. However, vegans whose diets contain large amounts of grains and only minimal amounts of beans could become deficient in lysine. Athletes involved in frequent vigorous exercise have increased need for essential amino acids, although most diets meet these increased needs. The essential amino acid requirements of burn patients may exceed the amount of lysine in the diet.
How much is usually taken?
Most people do not require lysine supplementation. Doctors often suggest that people with recurrent herpes simplex infections take 1,000–3,000 mg of lysine per day.
