L-Lysine is an amino acid that is a building block for all protein in the body. It plays a major role in calcium absorption; building muscles and ligaments; and the production of hormones, enzymes, and antibodies. It is an essential amino acid, which means that your body cannot make it, so you have to get it from your food.
L-Lysine plentiful in all pulses (legumes). Other foods that contain significant amounts of lysine include:
red meat, eggs, watercress, carob, caraway seeds, cumin, coriander seed, spinach, amaranth, quinoa and buckwheat.
