Vitacost L-Lysine -- 500 mg - 100 Capsules

Offers support during times of mental anxiety and stress.*. What is L-lysine?  . L-lysine is an essential amino acid meaning the body cannot synthesize it on its own but it must be obtained through diet (mainly from foods high in protein). L-lysine is required for many body functions that support skin bones collagen and elastin.* It’s also important for normal growth and development.*.  . L-lysine is converted in the body to acetyl CoA which is a critical part of metabolizing carbohydrates for energy.* Lysine is also a precursor to carnitine which helps transport fatty acids into the mitochondria where they can be used for energy or other functions.*.  . Lysine has an antagonistic relationship with L-arginine making it useful in the reduction of arginine levels.*.  . How does L-lysine support health? Supports immune system function.*. May support a healthy cardiovascular system.*. Offers support during times of mental anxiety and stress.*. Supports absorption of calcium from the digestive tract making it more available for biological functions.*. Since L-lysine is single nutrient it’s often combined with other herbs or amino acids to obtain complementary effects such as immune system support or helping to reduce mental stress and anxiety or cardiovascular benefits.*. Why choose Vitacost L-Lysine? Supplies 500 mg of L-lysine per single-capsule serving. Contains 100 servings per bottle. Offers exceptional quality at extraordinary value. . About Vitacost.

Too bad cats can't speak

"I use 2 capsules a day for each of my cats - veterinarian recommended. I chose this brand for its fair pricing and, being a capsule I simply pour it on the cats' two canned meals a day."

Easy to Take
 April 12, 2011
"NSI's encapsulated L-Lysine makes swallowing 500mg of it sooo much easier. I no longer dread trying to swallow a thick, bulky tablet. As a result, I'm consistent about taking my L-Lysine now.
Having shopped extensively for encapsulated L-Lysine, Vitacost's NSI L-Lysine 500mg is an outstanding value.
