What does the amino acid lysine do?
In the body, lysine is found in the protein collagen, which is an important component in, for example, hair, skin and nails where it contributes to stability. In addition to this, collagen is a part of the body's cartilage, which is found in our joints, for example.
Lysine is also a precursor to the amino acid carnitine, which in turn is the amino acid that transports fat into the cells' mitochondria where the fat can then be burned. Lysine is also involved in the absorption of calcium in the intestine and is therefore also important for the normal function of the bone structure.
Dosage of Lysine
Healthwell Lysine 500 is taken every day, 1 capsule a day. The dose can also be increased if necessary but should not exceed 3 capsules per day.
