L-Lysine is an essential, basic amino acid. It may help to prevent the cross-linking of the body's endogenous proteins (glycosylation) — this is one of the underlying manifestations of the aging process. Anaemia may occur as a result of lysine deficiency. Lysine (5,000mg per day) may help to reduce the symptoms of angina. Hair loss may occur as a result of lysine deficency. Lysine may accelerate the healing of the lesions associated with Herpes simplex viruses.
