Metabolic Maintenance L-Lysine 500mg 100c is an essential amino acid that must be obtained from food or supplementation. L-Lysine is found abundantly in muscles, connective tissue and collagen. L-Lysine supplementation is highly recommended for vegetarians. Researchers are exploring the value of L-Lysine supplementation for lowering cholesterol, improving athletic performance, and enhancing recovery after surgery. The most promising application of lysine is its use in managing and preventing painful and unsightly herpes sores caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). In order for HSV to replicate, it needs arginine, another common amino acid. L-Lysine competes with L-Arginine for absorption and entry into tissue cells, and when L-Lysine is present, it inhibits the growth of HSV by knocking out L-Arginine.
