Officially, nine amino acids are considered essential, ie the body gets their only outside. To date, found that the body can produce itself if necessary only 7 of them, but in limited quantities. The other 2 we get only from food.
Lysine is one from those amino acids (its name comes from the Greek words lysis, which means "splitting"). It not only has been involved in the construction of proteins, but also promotes the absorption of calcium necessary for the formation of collagen and, consequently, has a positive effect on the structures of the body where it is possible to detect collagen, for example, connective tissue and the walls of blood vessels.
Lysine also helps build and maintain right bone structure and is irreplaceable in the synthesis of L-carnitine, another amino acid that takes part in fat metabolism, ensuring proper functioning of muscles and helps the process of energy production.
In 1950, it was found that lysine may stop the growth of herpes virus and prevent recurrences of disease. Lysine can reduce high blood pressure, which is one of the main causes of heart attacks and strokes. In 2002, the studies showed that lysine blocked metastasis of cancer cells a variety of types.
In drawing up our daily diet should be taken not only the quantity of consumed amino acids, but also their right balance. Rich sources of lysine are meat and dairy products. Strict vegetarian diet does not give the body the required number of lysine, hence, it must be taken as a dietary supplement. The same advice can be given to those who followed the diet for weight loss, is engaged in heavy physical labor or professional sports.
L-Lysine Plus - the latest development of the company CaliVita - perfectly suited for this purpose. Besides lysine, it also contains vitamin C (antioxidant), which intensifies the effect of lysine.
Recommended dosage: 1 capsule a day.
