Lysine

INFORMATION

Uses

Lysine is used in the treatment of nutritional deficiencies.

How it works

Proteins of the herpes simplex virus are rich in L-arginine, and tissue culture studies indicate an enhancing effect on viral replication when the amino acid ratio of L-arginine to L-lysine is high in the tissue culture media. When the ratio of L-lysine to L-arginine is high, viral replication and the cytopathogenicity of herpes simplex virus have been found to be inhibited. L-lysine may facilitate the absorption of calcium from the small intestine.

Common side effects

Abdominal cramp, Diarrhoea, Nausea
