L-Lysine™ provides 22,113 mg L-Lysine monohydrochloride per ounce. Lysine is an amino acid most often deficient in horses' diets. L-Lysine™ is especially recommended for equine diets low in alfalfa, clover and soy.
- Amino Acid
- Immune Support
L-Lysine™ is concentrated form of the amino acid Lysine. Lysine is a critical building block for all protein in the body. It is an amino acid that cannot be created by the body, so it must be obtained by food or supplements. Grains and grasses are considered inadequate sources of Lysine. Using L-Lysine supplementation at times of stress is key to calcium absorption, building muscle protein, boosting the immune system and supporting the body's production of hormones, enzymes, and antibodies.
Lysine is an amino acid and the only one for which a requirement in the horse has been established by the NRC and used for the biosynthesis of proteins. This amino acid is often the key to improving protein availability and healthy muscle function.
What is L-Lysine used/needed for?
MVP: L-Lysine is an important Amino Acid that the body cannot produce. It is necessary for collagen formation, aids in normal muscle recovery and building muscle protein. If the needed amino acid is not present protein production ceases.
