L-Lysine is an essential amino acid which must be obtained from the diet as the body can't produce it on its own. Proteins are made from long chains of smaller molecules known as amino acids. Protein makes up the structure of all cells and tissues in the body, including muscle tissue, internal organs, tendons, skin, hair and nails. The 20 amino acids (including l-lysine) are the building blocks of protein. 12 of these amino acids can be made in the body so are referred to as non-essential amino acids, whilst the other 8 are known as essential amino acids as they must be supplied in the diet. You must be 18 years or older to purchase this product.

L-lysine is one of the 8 essential amino acids.
The body cannot produce L-lysine itself, so we need to obtain it through the foods we eat instead.
L-lysine is the form of lysine our bodies can use. It is commonly found in a range of foods, including legumes, cheese, red meat, pork, eggs, soybeans, and certain fish.
Amino acids are vital because they combine with other compounds to form protein – a necessary macronutrient.
Those who follow a vegan or vegetarian diet may struggle to obtain l-lysine from plant sources so a supplement may help.
Yes, l-lysine supplements contain no animal derivatives and are therefore safe for vegans and vegetarians to use.
Those following a vegans or vegetarian lifestyle may otherwise find it a challenge to obtain sufficient levels of l-lysine through their diet, since very few plant-based foods contain l-lysine.
As a result, they might benefit from a daily supplement to help keep their levels adequately topped up.
Similarly, anyone who is on a restrictive diet or does not enjoy the taste of foods containing l-lysine may want to try incorporating a supplement into their daily routine.
Take one 1000mg l-lysine tablet each day, alongside food. This should prevent feelings of nausea.
Holland & Barrett L-Lysine Caplets are only suitable for adults aged 18 and over. You should therefore keep them out of the reach of children.
