Common name: Lysine
CSD refcode: LYSCLH11
Short description: Lysine is one of the 8 essential amino acids and is involved with calcium absorption.
Keyword: calcium absorption
Keyword: calcium
Keyword: collagen
CAS registry number: 56-87-1
Layman's explanation: Lysine insures absorption of calcium, assists in formation of collagen, helps maintain the nitrogen balance in the body, and aids in the production of antibodies, hormones, and enzymes. Deficiency leads to tiredness, irritability, hair loss, anemia, and inability to concentrate. Lysine is an essential substance to humans and can be found in red meats and dairy products.
