Purety L-lysine is a dietary supplement that provides L-lysine, an essential amino acid that cannot be produced by the body and must be obtained through diet or supplements. L-lysine is involved in the synthesis of proteins and collagen, and it is important for the maintenance of healthy bones, skin, and connective tissue.

Some benefits of L-lysine supplementation include:

  • Supporting the immune system
  • Supporting skin health
  • Supporting cardiovascular health
  • Supporting bone health
  • Helping to reduce anxiety and stress
  • Supporting healthy energy levels

Purety L-lysine capsules contain 500 mg of L-lysine per capsule, and the recommended dosage is one to two capsules per day, unless otherwise directed by a healthcare practitioner. The capsules are vegetarian-friendly and free of common allergens, such as gluten, soy, and dairy.

Here are the details about Purety L-lysine:

  • Ingredients:
    • L-lysine
  • Benefits:
    • Supports the immune system
    • Helps to heal cold sores
    • Promotes wound healing
    • Reduces the risk of herpes outbreaks
  • Dosage:
    • Take 1-2 capsules daily, with or without food.

Overall, Purety L-lysine is a natural supplement that can help to support the immune system and promote wound healing. It is made with a high-quality form of L-lysine that is easily absorbed by the body. The product is safe for most people to use, but it is important to talk to your doctor before taking it if you have any underlying health conditions. Here are some additional details about the benefits of L-lysine:

  • Immune system: L-lysine is an essential amino acid that helps to support the immune system. It plays a role in the production of antibodies and other immune cells. L-lysine may also help to reduce the risk of infection.
  • Cold sores: L-lysine is often used to treat cold sores. It can help to shorten the duration of a cold sore outbreak and reduce the severity of symptoms.
  • Wound healing: L-lysine is also beneficial for wound healing. It helps to promote the production of collagen, which is a protein that helps to repair tissues. L-lysine may also help to reduce the risk of infection at a wound site.
  • Herpes: L-lysine may also help to reduce the risk of herpes outbreaks. Herpes is a viral infection that causes cold sores and genital herpes. L-lysine may help to suppress the virus and reduce the frequency of outbreaks.

An “Essential” Amino Acid Lysine, known chemically as 2,6-diaminohexanoic acid, is one of nine essential amino acids. Concentrated in muscle tissue, lysine is the amino acid that the body most highly conserves. An amino acid is a building block of protein and is considered “essential” when the body cannot manufacture it in sufficient quantities. Plants and bacteria can synthesize lysine from aspartic acid, but humans must meet their need for lysine by obtaining it directly from food and/or dietary supplementation. L-Lysine is the primary limiting amino acid for protein synthesis for those who consume a cereal-based diet.*

Daily Requirement : The adult recommendation for lysine intake varies according to the organization citing it. For example, the World Health Organization estimates the adult daily intake requirement to be 30 mg/kg body weight/day, while the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations estimates the requirement to be only 12 mg/kg/day. Doses for short-term use range between 3000-9000 mg/day, while the general maintenance dose tends to be closer to 1000 mg per day. Additional lysine, above maintenance needs, is believed to support healthy growth in children.[1-4] Lysine requirements may change under specific physiological circumstances as well. For example, a University of Toronto study suggested that women have an increased need for lysine during the luteal phase of their menstrual cycle due to increased protein catabolism.*[5]

The need for lysine is mostly satisfied by an average US adult diet, which consists of 6-10 g of lysine per day. However, athletes and non-legume–consuming vegans may require more lysine. Signs of insufficient dietary intake of lysine include low energy, agitation, poor sense of balance, nausea, poor appetite, slow growth, and bloodshot eyes.*

The Importance of Lysine in Health As a building block of protein, lysine is obviously important in the growth and repair of tissue. In addition, it is essential to the body’s synthesis of carnitine, a nutrient the body uses to convert fatty acids into energy and to maintain a healthy cholesterol level. Lysine also must be available for the synthesis of collagen, a substance needed for healthy bones and connective tissue, such as skin, tendons, and cartilage. Lysine enhances calcium absorption and the incorporation of calcium into the bone matrix. It also supports renal conservation of calcium by reducing urinary loss of this mineral.[6] In the presence of higher amounts of diet- or supplement-derived arginine in the bloodstream, additional lysine may be needed to provide balance between these two amino acids.*

Lysine and the Brain Once lysine is absorbed, a basic amino acid carrier, possibly the cationic amino acid transporter-1 (CAT-1), escorts it across the blood-brain barrier. The amino acid arginine competes with lysine for transport across the blood-brain barrier. The amount of each amino acid that actually enters the brain depends upon the relative concentration of each amino acid present. The dietary ratio of lysine to arginine is important because, unlike arginine, lysine is not synthesized by the central nervous system. It has been suggested that the relative concentration of lysine to arginine in the brain may be a factor that influences brain wellness.*[7] 

A Glance at Some Research A study in tissue culture demonstrated that the addition of lysine antagonized the viral growthsupporting nature of arginine.[7] There is current interest in the possible benefit of lysine supplementation to support healthy cognition during the aging process.[8] The lysine transporter could possibly decline with age, and dietary lysine intake (i.e., from meat) tends to decline with age. A three-month, randomized, double-blind, Syrian population-based study (n=93) demonstrated the negative mental health impact of consuming mostly incomplete-protein wheat as a dietary staple. As it is in most cereal grains, including wheat, lysine is the limiting amino acid. When the cereals were fortified with lysine, cortisol levels could be maintained within the normal range.*[9]
