Lysine is an essential amino acid necessary for growth, tissue repair, and the production of antibodies, hormones, and enzymes. It is most commonly used to prevent and help decrease the incidence of herpes simplex infection (fever blisters and cold sores). It also helps promote better concentration and allows fatty acids to be used more effectively for energy production. Lysine has been found to aid in alleviating fertility problems as well.

Lysine is concentrated in muscle tissue and helps in the absorption of calcium from the intestinal tract, the promotion of bone growth, and the formation of collagen.  Lysine also contributes to bone health. The body needs lysine to absorb calcium and transport the mineral into the bones. Hence, lysine is useful in preventing osteoporosis.
