Lysine by Thorne Research. For Skin/Energy/Immunity. 60 caps.
Lysine is an essential amino acid that promotes immune function, supports bone health and skin integrity, and encourages wound healing**
Lysine, a vital building block for protein, is important for collagen formation, which provides structure for healthy skin, bones, and muscles.* Lysine also provides support for healing of sores and wounds.*
Benefits - Immune Support
Lysine is an essential amino acid your body doesn’t produce on its own, meaning it must come from diet or supplementation. Primary dietary sources of lysine are meat, poultry, fish, dairy, tofu, lentils, and beans. However, supplementing this essential amino acid is advisable because many individuals don’t get enough lysine through diet alone.
Thorne’s Lysine uses the purest, most absorbable form of this amino acid – without adding unnecessary additives or preservatives.
Health benefits of lysine include:
Wound healing – Lysine is often recommended for supporting the healing of sores and wounds because of its benefits to collagen formation and immune function.*
Some evidence indicates lysine can be beneficial for maintaining healthy gum and lip tissues.*
Promotes immune health – lysine provides nutritional support to help your body maintain its natural defenses.*
Skin health – This amino acid promotes collagen formation, which in turn benefits the health and elasticity of the skin.*
Bone Health – lysine promotes calcium absorption, which is needed to maintain strong bones and teeth.*
Take one capsule two to three times daily or as recommended by your health professional.
