Lysine is an essential amino acid. Of the 20 amino acids, the molecules that comprise proteins, 8 are called essential. This means the body cannot manufacture them and therefore they must be consumed. Lysine along with the amino acid Methionine, is used by the body to synthesize L-carnitine, which helps cells to break down fat in the body and in so doing helps the body to produce energy. Lysine, in conjunction with the amino acid L-arginine, is necessary for collagen synthesis and so plays an important role in the building and production of skin cells, ligaments and tendons.
