What is L-Lysine?

Posted by Shopsomalife on 1/14/2015 to Vitamins and Supplements
Although more than 300 different amino acids exist in nature, only 20 serve as building blocks for proteins, and lysine is one of them. Most of these amino acids occur as stereoisomers, which means there are two forms of each – the D form and the L form – that are mirror images of each other. Only the L form of amino acids becomes incorporated into protein and gets used by your body. In addition to contributing to protein structure, some L-amino acids, such as lysine, might benefit your health when taken as a dietary supplement.  Food-based sources of lysine include poultry, red meat, Parmesan cheese, eggs, sardines, cod and soy. Nuts, beans and milk products also provide this amino acid in a natural form.  A number of our products at Shop Soma Life contain healthy amounts of L-Lysine.

People Who Need Supplements the Most

Ideally, we should be able to get all the nutrients we need from the food we eat. But that isn’t always the case. In fact, it is becoming increasingly harder to get all the nutrients we need from food. The modern farming methods, the exhaustion of soil, and holding quantity as more important than quality have all led to the fact that our food is starting to lack in nutrients. But this might prove to be a bigger problem for some people than for others.
