- Product Details
Now Foods Lysine Powder is an essential amino acid needed for growth and to help maintain nitrogen balance in the body.
L-Lysine is an essential amino acid, which means that it cannot be manufactured by the body. It must be obtained through the diet or by supplementation. Lysine is one of the most well known amino acids and is an essential component of proteins.
Most people, including vegans, 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.

L-Lysine for immunity boost in cats
L-Lysine Powder review posted by Super Supplement Customer on 10/21/13
Most of our cats came with some kind of past disease, including herpes. L-Lysine helps keep them from sneezing (two cats) and reduces the excess tearing (which leaves ugly brown stains and crusty glop at the inner corners of their eyes). Buying L-Lysine as a loose powder is much more convenient for us.
Only L-Lysine powder I've found
L-Lysine Powder review posted by Super Supplement customer on 1/15/13
I volunteer at a cat rescue shelter where I learned that L-Lysine added to food helps keep herpes under control. (Herpes is often the cause of dark, yucky drainage from the cat's eyes.) Three of our cats get that dark drainage, but L-Lysine added to their food every day keeps it to a minimum.
Seems to Work
L-Lysine Powder review posted by Stephanie Woods-Bettis on 10/19/12
We purchase this for our cats to ward off the respiratory and goopy eye infections they seem to pass around easily if we don't supplement. This was at the recommendation of our vet. He uses another brand, but the large tub of NOW powder is more convenient for us. They seem to stay healthy, and if they do start to get sick, we up the dosage and it goes away quickly.
L-Lysine Powder review posted by BJB on 7/12/12
I like having L-Lysine in unencapsulated powder form so I can adjust dosage as needed. This is the only manufacturer I've found who offers L-Lysine in bulk.
