Now L-Lysine is a Pharmaceutical Grade essential amino acid.
L-Lysine is an essential amino acid, which means that it cannot be manufactured by the body and must be obtained through the diet or by supplementation.
Over 300 amino acids exist in nature, but only 20 are used for protein metabolism, and L-Lysine is one of those 20.
Lysine is necessary for the production of all protein in the body including hormones, enzymes, antibodies, carnitine as well as collagen, which is the structural protein forming all connective tissue such as skin, tendons, and bones.
L-Lysine also increases calcium absorption and reduces calcium excretion in urine, so care must be used when supplementing with calcium and L-Lysine together to prevent high calcium levels.
Evidence suggests that L-Lysine supplementation may help to support a healthy immune system as well as proper cardiovascular function.

Note: L-Lysine and Arginine (another amino acid) use the same pathways in the body. If taking L-Lysine for cold sores, herpes, shingles or chickenpox, avoid taking L-Arginine or consuming foods high in L-Arginine such as peanuts, soy products, sesame seeds, flour, turkey, crustaceans (e.g. crabs or crayfish). Just a handful of peanuts can offset the Lysine/Arginine ratio and exacerbate herpes symptoms. For those with no herpes risk or symptoms, arginine and L-Lysine should be taken together to avoid one depleting the other and to help build muscle.
Vegans and burn victims will often benefit most from L-Lysine.
Lysine deficiency can cause fatigue, nausea, dizziness, decreased appetite, irritability, bloodshot eyes, delayed development, anemia, loss of appetite, hair loss or slow hair growth, low thyroid hormone production, increased kidney stone formation, asthma, and reproductive issues.

Suggested Use
As a dietary supplement, take 1/4 level teaspoon daily (552mg), preferably with a meal.
This is a maintenance dose for those with reasonable Lysine in the diet. Other sources say 1 gram (1000mg) daily or 1/2 teaspoon should be taken. The minimum requirement to prevent Lysine deficiency is 1 gram daily from all sources. Those with high risk of herpes symptoms (cold sores, chicken pox, shingles), 3 grams daily (spread through the day) is recommended, and up to 9 grams daily for serious infections. Please note the side-effects below for large doses.
