What is L-Lysine Hydrochloride(HCl)?
L-Lysine HCl is the much more soluble version of L-Lysine. Categorized as an essential amino acid, lysine is required to keep healthy growth and tissue maintenance/repair.
Lysine can be found in most foods meats and vegetables. This amino acid is considered essential as an aid in protein synthesis. Lysine helps to promote the formation of new antibodies which then go on to aid in growth or repair of new or damaged cells. This process potentially leads to new muscle genesis.*
Lysine is also thought to play a critical role in fighting herpes simplex virus, commonly known as cold sores. For more information please see Success of L-lysine therapy in frequently recurrent herpes simplex infection. Treatment and prophylaxis.*
Lysine and l-arginine have also been linked to reducing anxiety and basal cortisol levels which is key for athletes or people that suffer from anxiety. To read more about the clinical science and dosage investigated, please read Oral treatment with L-lysine and L-arginine reduces anxiety and basal cortisol levels in healthy humans.*
Another benefit of lysine supplementation is its ability to generate carnitine, an amino acid essential in the break down of fatty acids (fat). Lysine is critical in the formation of carnitine thus potentially increasing one's ability to break down fat and use as an energy source, for instance, in a ketogenic diet.*
Benefits of L-Lysine HCl include*
- Increased creation of new tissue and immune system function
- Maintenance of nitrogen levels in the body
- Increased creation of carnitine thus increasing oxidation (utilization) of fatty acids (fat).
Instructions for Use
As a dietary supplement, take 1/2 scoop or a 1/4 teaspoonful up to twice daily. When mixing the powder, stir with a spoon for 15-30 seconds to completely dissolve.* L-lysine HCl has a sour flavor.
