Lysine is an essential amino acid, meaning the human body cannot make this compound that is needed to build protein, and therefore, must be ingested. Lysine is a limiting amino acid found in short supply in foods relative to the amounts needed for protein synthesis in the body. When broken down in the body, lysine yields acetyl coenzyme A, an important molecule needed for carbohydrate and fat metabolism.
Lysine plays an important role in calcium absorption, tissue repair, and in the production of hormones, enzymes and antibodies. Additionally, studies report that lysine may be helpful in fighting the virus that causes cold sores. Although deficiency is rare, lack of lysine from the diet can cause fatigue, nausea, dizziness, loss of appetite, anemia, and slow growth in children.*
