Lysine is an essential amino acid with many benefits that range from preventing cold sores to reducing anxiety, improving calcium, iron and zinc absorption and promoting wound healing. As a building block of proteins, it has numerous essential functions and supports the immune system. Without enough lysine, your body may be unable to produce sufficient or appropriate hormones and immune cells.
Treatment & Prevention of Cold Sores
If you’re prone to cold sores, taking 1000 mg of lysine daily (equivalent to two capsules of Wilaya King Lysine) will help prevent cold sores and reduce the duration if you are already experiencing them. Lysine blocks another amino acid called arginine, which cold sores need in order to multiply and is thus very effective.
Reduce Anxiety, stress levels and possibly assist with schizophrenic symptoms
There are many studies that have proven the effectiveness of Lysine in reducing anxiety. In one study involving 50 healthy people it was concluded that supplementing with 2.64 grams of lysine lowered stress-induced anxiety and reduced levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Additional studies conducted in Syria concluded that lysine reduced anxiety levels in both males and females with very high stress levels. Lysine may also have the potential to improve schizophrenia symptoms in combination with prescribed medication.
Improve calcium absorption and retention
Lysine increases calcium absorption in your gut and helps your kidneys to hold on to the mineral. It also plays a part in controlling where calcium is transported in your body and has been shown to prevent the buildup of calcium in blood vessels and thus beneficial for those suffering from heart disease.
Lysine improves wound healing in your body by helping create collagen
Lysine is required for the formation of collagen, a protein that acts as a scaffold and helps support and give structure to skin and bones. Lysine also acts as a binding agent increasing the number of new cells at the site of a wound and promotes the formation of new blood vessels. Wound healing, including the fracture of bones, is a complex process that requires different minerals, vitamins and other factors and is impaired without adequate lysine.
Wilaya King Lysine packs all the power of Lysine combined with vitamin C, astragalus root, licorice root, ginger root, vitamin D, and Echinacea in a Halal and vegan blend that is an essential in the home of every family.
