L-Lysine is an amino acid that works as a building block in your body. It is vital for cell growth, tissue repair, and the production of antibodies, hormones, and enzymes.
Your body cannot make Lysine. As an essential nutrient needed for your body to grow and function, it is super important to obtain a proper amount from foods or supplements.
Here are the 3 main health benefits of L-Lysine!
1. L-Lysine May Stop & Reduce Viral Infection
Studies have shown Lysine may block viral replication that happens within your body. When a virus enters the bloodstream it needs certain amino acids to replicate and grow stronger.
For example, the herpes simplex virus (HSV) needs an amino acid called arginine to grow. L-Lysine works by blocking these amino acids, Therefore, stopping the virus from replicating. This can drastically reduce the duration and severity of a cold or infection (1), (2), (3).
In a 12-month trial, 26 people prone to recurring cold sore breakouts were given 1,000mg of Lysine per day. In conclusion, these people had a reduction in the length of their cold sore breakouts along with a reduction in the total number of cold sore breakouts (4).
Some food for thought, if L-Lysine could block other viruses from replicating, could it block the COVID-19 cells from getting the proper essential amino acids needed to grow in the human body? If possible, L-lysine would be a promising treatment for the coronavirus by potentially reducing the duration and severity of infection as it does with cold sores.
As COVID-19 is still a relatively new infective agent, there have not yet been studies done on L-Lysine and its effect on coronavirus. However, we definitely think there is some merit here!
2. L-Lysine May Reduce Anxiety
Numerous trials have shown L-Lysine to be effective in blocking receptors responsible for creating stress, thus making it a promising treatment for chronic anxiety.
In a one-week, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, one hundred eight healthy Japanese adults were given L-Lysine on a daily basis. The trial concluded that L-lysine lowered both stress-induced anxiety and levels of a stress hormone called cortisol (5).
In another study, L-lysine was added to wheat flour in a Syrian village. After three months, the lysine-enriched flour reduced cortisol levels in women and lowered the anxiety scores in males (6).
If you are feeling stressed out it is definitely a great all-natural option to promote a calm mood!
3. Promotes Collagen Production In The Body
L-Lysine, a major building block for protein, is required in the formation of collagen.
Collagen is responsible for 25% to 35% of the body’s total protein content. It makes your skin look youthful, gives your bones/muscle structure, and makes them tough and flexible (7). As the body gets older and slows down on collagen production, L-Lysine in supplement form is a great way to make up for the loss.
