L-lysine is an essential amino acid that is necessary for building proteins. It helps with bone growth, tissue repair, fighting disease, and production of hormones. Because lysine is an essential amino acid, it cannot be manufactured by the body. It is important that a person consume L-lysine through diet and supplementation.
Some supplements may interact with prescription and (or) over-the-counter medicines.
If you have any concerns, please consult your physician for more information.
