Vitacost L-Lysine Pure Powder Targeted Wellness Supplement 435mg
What is L-lysine?
- L-lysine is an essential amino acid, meaning the body cannot synthesize it on its own—it must be obtained through diet, mainly from foods high in protein. L-lysine is important for normal growth and development and required for healthy bones, skin, collagen and elastin.*
- L-lysine is converted to acetyl CoA, a critical part of metabolizing carbohydrates for energy.* Lysine is also a precursor to carnitine, which helps transport fatty acids into mitochondria for energy production and other functions.*
