L-Lysine benefits are substantial. What is L-Lysine, which sometimes thought to be misspelled to lysine? Simply put, L-Lysine is an essential amino acid. It is in fact, one of many amino acids that the body needs for constant tissue repair and for growth as well (especially for athletes and bodybuilders). L-Lysine in the body must be acquired from food and/or supplementation.

Functions & Benefits of L-Lysine
The benefits of l-lysine are focused. Without any further adieu, here are the most significant L- Lysine benefits.
L-Lysine natural help for shingles exists. Shingles lesions are painful due to reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus. L-Lysine appears to help treat the eruption of shingles. However, there still needs to be more research conducted to definitively proclaim it a major factor. Many have used steroids an antiviral drugs as well. Herbalists say it is helpful as well.
L-Lysine benefits include reducing the severity of herpes-related cold sores. L-Lysine inhibits the herpes virus. It prevents and relieves cold sores around genital areas, which are type 2 herpes as well as helping type 1 herpes, which is not as harsh as type 2.
Benefits of L-Lysine also include a role in promoting good bone health
As L-Lysine is necessary for collagen synthesis, it has a role to play in healthy skin, ligaments, and tendons.
L-Lysine also helps in the treatment and healing of general cold sores and canker sores as well. The richest sources of L-Lysine and the commensurate L-Lysine benefits are red meats, fish, milk, eggs, cheese, beans, lentils, peas, etc. L-Lysine natural help for shingles and benefits of l-lysine in general are found best in supplementation. In other words, enhanced amounts are more therapeutic. Currently, there is no RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance) for lysine. However, estimates are 12 mg for every 2.2 pounds of body weight. For enhanced benefits of l-lysine, supplementation is recommended.
