WHAT IS L-LYSINE?

L-Lysine is an essential amino acid (there are 10 amino acids that the human body requires, but cannot make itself) — so it’s a critical “building block” for creating tissue, and repairing the body.   We receive L-Lysine, along with the other amino acids in the food we eat… though it has additional benefits beyond the core requirement of being needed to make proteins for our body.

 

WHY TAKE IT?

We get L-Lysine from many foods, with the largest amounts from animal products such as beef, lamb, turkey, chicken, tuna, certain cheeses and eggs — as well as smaller amounts in certain beans and seeds.   As with many substances, it is very easy to get insufficient amounts, due to poor diet, poor quality of food, and sub-par digestion.   Also, certain of the specific benefits of L-Lysine come from have a larger dose, away from meal time — allowing the body to utilise large amounts for other purposes.

 

POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF L-LYSINE:

As an essential amino acid, it is obviously essential for a properly functioning body… but there are other possible benefits from supplementing…

Studies have suggested benefits from L-Lysine such as:

  1. Reduce anxiety and stress — it binds with your Serotonin receptors, which can help prevent anxiety and panic attacks.
  2. It can greatly increase the body’s ability to absorb Calcium — Calcium is vital for many processes within the body, but is often poorly absorbed, especially for those with poor digestive systems.
  3. Supports Gut Health — millions of people suffer from digestive issues, especially Leaky Gut… but L-Lysine is an anti-inflammatory, and can help with the repair of the digestive system.
  4. Can reduce blood glucose concentrations, and improve insulin sensitivity.
  5. Anti-Viral — For decades, L-Lysine has been used to tackle certain viruses… especially those from the Herpes family (2/3 of people have HSV-1, which causes Cold Sores).   It has also been successful with some other types of virus.

 

ANTI-VIRAL:

Many types of virus require L-Arginine (another essential amino acid) to replicate — and people who have a diet providing higher amounts of L-Arginine can be more prone to viral infections.   L-Lysine has a very similar structure, and viruses will use it instead of Arginine if there’s no choice… however, it “corrupts” the virus, and prevents it spreading.   

Doctors discovered in the 1970s, that people can take large doses of Lysine supplements, and reduce their intake of Arginine rich foods — thus inhibiting viral infections and spread.   

Most foods contain Arginine, but many also have plenty of Lysine in as well… so people specifically trying to use a Lysine anti-viral program cut down on foods such as:  Nuts, Chocolate, Spirulina, Squash family, Oats, Wheat, Coconut meat, Lentils, Oranges, and many protein/workout supplements (as they often have huge amounts of Arginine added).


WHEN TO TAKE?

 Take your capsules at least 1 hour before any food, otherwise the L-Lysine will get “lost” among all the other amino acids in your meal.   By taking it on its own, it will allow viruses like Herpes to utilise the Lysine, thus damaging itself.    If taking several capsules daily, spread the dose through the day…


OUR CAPSULES:

The capsules we use are made from Pullulan, which is synthesised from tapioca - it is completely inert in the human body, and non-allergenic.   Pullulan is superior to the more common HPMC vegetarian capsules, or gelatine ones, and is highly resistant to oxygen (keeping the product inside fresher).    Unlike tablets, capsules don’t require multiple binding agents, flow agents, coatings, and preservatives - so you get fewer ingredients.
