What Is Lysine?

Lysine (symbol Lys or K) is a -amino acid that is required for protein production. It is classified as an essential, charged (at physiological pH), aliphatic amino acid because it comprises a-amino group (which is protonated NH3+ under biological circumstances), a -carboxylic acid group (which is deprotonated COO under biological conditions), and a side chain lysyl ((CH2)4NH2).

Lysine Uses

Lysine’s functions and applications are as follows:

  • Lysine is typically found in the structure of proteins.
  • Lysine is the limiting amino acid (the necessary amino acid present in the fewest amount in the given diet), while it is abundant in most pulses (legumes).
  • Lysine has also been linked to several other biological processes, including structural proteins, calcium balance, and fatty acid metabolism.
  • Proteinogenesis is the most prevalent function of Lysine. Lysine is typically found in the structure of proteins.
  • It aids in the production of antibodies, hormones, and enzymes and increases hemoglobin levels.
  • It is medically used for calcium absorption and aids in the treatment of osteoporosis.
  • It's used to decrease triglycerides in the blood and prevent cardiovascular and cerebrovascular illness.

Is Lysine Safe?

Taking lysine supplements is generally safe with few negative effects. Most individuals may tolerate up to 3 g of Lysine per day with no adverse effects.

No definitive data exists on the safety of long-term or high-dose lysine supplementation for the general population. Doses of 3000mg or over should not be used long-term owing to the risk of renal damage.

How Is Lysine Made?

Fermentation is used to make L-lysine, which involves using certain strains or mutations of microorganisms that grow in a solution of glucose or molasses, ammonium compounds, inorganic salts, and other things. Acrolein, methyl mercaptan, and any easily accessible source of cyanide and ammonium ions make DL-methionine.

Where To Buy Lysine in Bulk?

Lysine in small quantities may be available in your area. It is preferable, however, to acquire large amounts of Lysine directly from the producers. They may be able to provide certifications and cost savings that are preferable to buying the chemical in small quantities locally or through a distributor. If you require bulk quantities of this chemical, you can buy Lysine on our website or contact us for further details.
