What is Swanson Free-Form L-Lysine?

L-Lysine is one of your essential amino acid that are a building block for all proteins. Lysine is required for growth and bone development as it works to support calcium absorption and maintains nitrogen balance in adults. This amino acid also has extended roles in aiding with the production of antibodies, hormones and enzymes as well as collagen formation and tissue repair.

As one of the eight essential amino acids, L-Lysine cannot be manufactured by the body, but is obtained through diet. Sources of L-Lysine include milk, cheese, eggs, fish, lima beans, red meat, potatoes, soy products and brewer's yeast. The average 70 kg human requires 800 to 3,000 mg of lysine daily. Women, in particular athletes and those in menopause will need greater amounts of L-Lysine as their oestrogen levels are lower, which would otherwise promote the deposits of calcium into the bones.

Symptoms of a deficiency of L-Lysine in your diet include:

  • Anemia, tiredness, dizzy spells or nausea.
  • Loss of concentration, appetite or lack of energy.

Enriching your diet with foods plentiful of this essential nutrient is one way of keeping your lysine levels topped up, or you could choose a dietary supplement such as Swanson Free-Form L-Lysine 500mg capsules. Swanson are a US manufacturer and supplier of dietary supplements which have been rigorously tested for purity and potency, giving trust in choosing Swanson.
