Source Naturals Free Form L-Lysine 500 mg. 100 capsules
Source Naturals L-Lysine is an essential free-form amino acid which acts as a precursor for several other amino acids, including L-carnitine (needed for fat metabolism). L-Lysine is crucial for the formation of collagen, a major part of the body's connective tissues. L-Lysine also contributes to energy production when converted to acetyl coenzyme A, one of the principal fuels for the Krebs cycle.

What is Lysine?
Lysine is an essential amino acid needed for growth and to help maintain nitrogen balance in the body. (Essential amino acids cannot be made in the body and must be supplied by the diet or supplements.)
How Can Source Naturals L-Lysine Help You?
You need lysine for proper collagen formation. Collagen is the most abundant protein that makes up our bones, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. Lysine is also necessary for calcium absorption. Therefore, it should be noted that one of the main benefits of lysine is noted in our skeletal and skin system and lysine benefits can also be used in the treatment of osteoporosis. Another of the lysine benefits is to help the immune system by aiding in the production of antibodies. Hormone and enzyme production also require lysine support. Lysine is a precursor for another amino acid, l-carnitine. L-carnitine is necessary when it comes to the conversion of food into energy and it is also known to lower LDL and triglyceride levels.
Although you may be getting sufficient amounts of this amino acid from food sources, a deficiency in lysine can occur. Cooking at high temperatures can destroy the lysine in foods. Vegetarians are also found to be at risk from lysine deficiency. Some of the symptoms of lysine deficiency include loss of energy, loss of appetite, a difficulty concentrating, hair loss, and bloodshot eyes. Lysine deficiency can also cause anemia, reproductive disorders, and delayed growth. Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula™, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple™, Mega-Kid Multiple™, Inflama-Rest™, the Skin Eternal™ line, Higher Mind™, Essential Enzymes™, Male Response™, and more.
Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas™ help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals' nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today’s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
