Lysine is an essential amino acid. It is found abundantly in red meat, but in much lower quantities in most vegetables. Like all amino acids it functions as a building block for proteins. Proteins are essential for the formation of cells and are also involved in the biochemical structure of hormones, enzymes, neurotransmitters and antibodies. Only glutamic acid and aspartic acid are as concentrated as Lysine in muscles. Lysine takes part in bone growth by means of aiding Calcium absorption, and it also has a role in collagen integrity.

  • An essential amino acid, often denatured by cooking.
