What is Swanson Free-Form L-Lysine?

L-Lysine is an essential amino acid, which are a group of compounds that form the basic units of all proteins. It is used by the body as a building block for many functions important to growth and maintenance of health. It helps to release energy from fatty acids and supports calcium absorption and collagen formation, it is also important for muscle and bone health.

As one of the eight essential amino acids, L-Lysine is not made by the body, but is obtained through diet. Food sources of L-Lysine include beans, cheese, yogurt, meat, fish milk, brewer's yeast, wheat germ and nuts. The average 70 kg human requires 800 to 3,000 mg of lysine daily.

If you are deficient of L-Lysine in your diet, symptoms may present themselves as nausea, tiredness, dizzy spells, anaemia, and loss of appetite. Although this may be attributed to other health issues, so doctor or health practitioner guidance is always advised. Low L-Lysine levels may also be attributed to kidney stones, thyroid conditions, asthma, viral infections and abnormal growth and development.

As well as carefully balancing your diet to include L-Lysine rich food, dietary supplements such as Swanson Free-Form L-Lysine are a great consistent source of this essential amino acid. Swanson are a US manufacturer and supplier of dietary supplements which have been rigorously tested for purity and potency, giving its customers trust in choosing Swanson.
