L-lysine is an essential amino acid that is used by the body in the absorption of calcium, the formation of collagen, and the production of bone tissue. Lysine is also used in the production of carnitine, a nutrient that converts fatty acids into energy and helps lower cholesterol. A diet that is deficient in lysine can cause kidney stones and other health related problems such as fatigue, nausea, anemia, and reproductive disorders. Vegetarians, athletes, and individuals whose diets are high in cereals and baked goods may be at risk for lysine deficiency. Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, 1 or 2 capsules one to three times daily between meals, or as directed by a health practitioner. Warning: If pregnant, nursing, or taking prescription medication, consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use.
