Lysine is a building block for all of the proteins in your body, including collagen, which provides structural integrity for your skin.* Lysine also supports immune function and promotes lip health by blocking the activity of arginine, an amino acid that may trigger lip irrations.*
Lysine is an essential amino acid, which means that your body can't produce it and you must get it through diet or supplements. Lysine supports muscle cell turnover and growth and helps your body use fat cells as an energy source. It is also essential to collagen production, which is the main structural protein in your skin that plays a role in wound healing.* Lysine is present in animal-based food like dairy, meat, and fish, or plant-based foods like nuts, seeds, beans, and avocados. If you are trying to limit your arginine intake, which may be helpful for people who are prone to cold sores, snack on plain yogurt or apricots, which contain twice as much lysine as arginine.
