Amino acid preparation with L-lysine and vitamin C
L-lysine Plus contains vitamin C and the amino acid L-lysine. Both together support the immune system and the nervous system. L-lysine is mainly used to fight against viral infections (e.g. herpes simplex).
L-lysine is an essential amino acid that cannot be produced by the body itself, but must be absorbed through food or supplements. L-lysine is the animator of L-arginine and is needed to fight off viral infections (such as herpes).
In many carboxylases (enzymes that transmit CO2 groups), the amino group of lysine is a link between biotin (coenzyme) and protein (apoenzyme). Lysine is missing in most cereal proteins, which are therefore not organically full-fledged proteins. It is involved in the build-up of trypsin (protein-splitting enzyme of the pancreas), it is significantly (with about 30) involved in the build-up of collagen, and it is important for optimal growth.
Vitamin C contributes to normal energy metabolism,as well as to the function of the immune system and to the reduction of fatigue. In addition, vitamin C can protect the body’s own cells from oxidative stress, increase iron absorption and strengthen the immune system.
- Herpes Simplex: The viral disease manifests itself in the formation of numerous, group-shaped, fluid-filled blisters in the area of the mucous membrane of the nose, lips and outer genitals. Lysine is an antagonist to arginine, a non-essential amino acid that is the substrate of herpes viruses.
- Pregnancy, Growth, Convalescence
- Vegetarian diet: Since lysine is not contained at all or insufficiently in many plant-based foods and is also destroyed during cooking, it is easy to avoid a deficiency of lysine. The result is a reduction in the activity of vital enzymes.
- Wound healing: Lysine is involved in the build-up of collagen.
